Author Interview with Haiku Answers + Contest: Janet Lee Carey

Photo by Heidi Pettit
Here today is Dragonswood author Janet Lee Carey, but instead of answering my questions normally, I've challenged her to answer only in haiku form. So check out the interview, and then enter to win a copy of the book!

A little note in Haiku, Kari

All of these haikus
Were written while on Maui
Near the town – Haiku

Describe Tess.

Sees visions in fire
Desired she stirs a tempest
A thief’s stolen kiss

Would you rather be human, dragon or faerie in the world you’ve created for Dragonswood?

Fey dragon rider
Ember light, dark forest maid

If you could pair Tess with any character from any book, who would you pick?

Ranger Aragorn
Summoned armies from the dead
Heart of a true King

Which Death Eater, besides Voldemort, would you want to fight?

Bellatrix Lestrange
For killing Sirius Black
A curse to the heart

What kind of cookie would you describe yourself as?

Two to gobble, Kari:

Tasty pine nut treats
squirrel steals nuts in twilight wood
Wash down with moonlight

Coconut delights
Swim in warm Hawaiian sea
Summer wind on tongue

Something more about the book Dragonswood?

Enter this story
Magic forest Dragons Fey
Read to dream again
