Blog Tour: Lost on Spirit River - Tommy Batchelor - Author Interview

Last week I had the privilege of reviewing Lost on Spirit River by Tommy Batchelor. Today, I am honoured to have Tommy here with an interview. Thank you for being here,Tommy! You can follow along with the Teen Book Scene tour here. Clicking on the banner will also bring you to the tour details. 

If you were lost in a snowstorm, what three items would you recommend having with you? (Provided you knew there was a chance of being caught in bad weather.) 

1. Wear warm clothing, 2. Waterproof matches, 3. Compass.

What books would Tommy find appealing? Would he lean towards learning more about Native American history after finding shelter in a cave filled with Native American art? 

The First North American Series written by W. Michael and Kathleen Gear is a fact and fiction books on the times and life of the first native American. I would hope each child that discovered ancient painting on walls or an arrow head in their yard, would show a spark for wanting to know about the persons that lived in the area. Who they were, what they did for a living, how they lived, would you want to meet them!

If you could meet a character from any book ever written, which character and book would you choose, and why? 

Harry Potter. Who wouldn’t want to fly on a jet broom and turn your worst bully into a toad, slugs or worse? Harry also had pretty cool friends to help him when he was in a jam.

What would the front page headline of a newspaper say about you? 

Newsflash : New Southern Voice in Children Books.

If you were a tree, which tree would you be, and why?

I think it would be a Poplar tree. It can grow 100 – 120 feet (that’s almost 95 ft. taller than I am) into the sky. It’s limber limbs swing with the wind and are strong enough not to break. The roots dig deep into the earth for a strong handhold. Sort of like real life!

Thank you for those awesome answers, Tommy! I'll have to check out that book series. It sounds interesting!
