I would like to welcome Michele Corriel here today. She is the author of Fairview Felines, which looks like a cute read! Michele is here courtesy of The Teen Book Scene. If you would like to follow along with the rest of the tour, you can follow along here.
What is your favorite line from FAIRVIEW FELINES: A NEWSPAPER MYSTERY?
I would have to say the last line in the first chapter. It’s right before Thomas is going to sleep, thinking about starting his own school newspaper, “I lifted my palms to my face and breathed deeply, hoping to dream about deadlines, police sirens, three-alarm fires and the flash of a front page photograph.”
What are Thomas’ favorite subjects in school, and why?
Thomas loves Social Studies because a) he gets to turn in his assignments like they’re newspaper stories and b) he has a gigantic crush on Ms. Penny, the teacher.
If you were in Thomas’ shoes, having to find out where all of the cats disappeared to, what would you have done?
Well, it doesn’t take much to get Thomas fired up about something. He’s very passionate about his work and his friends, and so am I, but Thomas jumps into things pretty quickly, whereas I’m more of a thinker. I would’ve interviewed a few more people about exactly where and when their cats disappeared and then come up with a plan.
What would the front page headline of a newspaper say about you?
WRITER OVERCOMES ODDS, GETS BOOK DEAL, GREAT AGENT, AND HEADS BACK TO OFFICE TO WRITE MORE!
If you could be any cat (wild or domestic) which cat would you be, and why?
I would be my cat, Higgins, who lives the life of leisure, sleeps whenever he wants, eats whenever he wants, and secretly goes down to the basement at night and retrieves Christmas bows. (I love Christmas!)
Excellent interview, Michele. It was great having you here! Thank you for stopping by and answering some questions.
