Author Revealed

Dana Gynther
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Experience is one thing you can't get for nothing." Oscar Wilde (who else?)

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Writing IS a fantasy profession. That said, I'd love to be a painter.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness is achieved by putting together the perfect combination of people, place, weather, activity... For example, being in New Orleans on a sunny spring day surrounded by family and friends listening to Dixieland music and eating shrimp po'boys. Or simply, not having to leave your house when it is torrentially raining and curling up with a good book and a cup of tea while your husband rubs your feet (hint hint!).
I try to throw perfect combinations together whenever possible.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Love the cocky, misanthropic, flawed Sherlock Holmes.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I'd love to play a musical instrument. I toyed around with the tenor saxophone in school, but would really love to be able to play the cello... or the flute.
