Author Interview: Sybil Nelson

Here today, I have Priscilla the Great author Sybil Nelson hitting up my blog to answer some questions. But this isn't just any author interview. Nope. I gave Sybil the stipulation that her answers had to either directly relate to the book, or be actual lines from the book.

Describe Priscilla the Great in 6 words.

If Pippy Longstocking was an X-Men…

If you found yourself in Priscilla's situation, what would you do?

Hmmm…Shooting fire out of my fingers really isn’t a required skill for my day job as a biostatistian. I would probably just roast some marshmallows and call it a night.

What extraordinary gift would you want to have?

I would love to be able to freeze time. Ever since the days of playing Freeze Tag as a kid, I always thought that it would be cool to hit a real-life pause button. I would get so much done! Or I’d take a quick nap here and there.

You're stuck in a jail cell for a night. Which of your characters do you want to be stuck with and why?

Um, Priscilla, duh! She has super strength. She can break us out! My second choice would be Josh. At least he could keep me entertained by singing some Christina Aguilera songs!

It's Priscilla's 50th birthday. What does she do?

Tricks Kyle into buying her menopause medication! (This is an inside joke. You gotta read the book!)

What is your favorite time of day?

When my kids go to bed and I can get some writing done.

What kind of cookie would you describe yourself as?

Is there a cookie made of bacon? Cause that would be me.

First, BACON! Ahem. Second, thank you Sybil for those awesome answers!
