  3. These are always fun and a great way to learn about our blogging friends. I fall in love with my characters too, and I remember reading Dragons of Autumn Twilight decades ago (probably when you were toddling around, LOL). I can’t remember much about it, but I do know I loved it. Fantasy was my go-to reading in those days.

    Congrats on the award, and thanks for the nomination. It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these, but I’m honored. I’ll play and get something up on my blog. Fun questions! 🙂

    1. Oh so I’m not the only sad despot who writes the perfect character for me to fall for 😏 that’s comforting. Part of the allure of Dragons was the main character Raistlin. A true antihero bad boy if ever there was one, and my very first literary crush. Sigh… happy days.

      And what’s all this “when you were toddling”?? Surely we can’t be that dissimilar in age?!

      Glad you’re going to play this time Mae, I’m keen to learn a bit more about your deepest darkest secrets… like what TV shows do you like 🤗

      1. Heehee. I’m going to try to get the post up next week. You came up some great questions to answer, and there really is one (probably only one) current TV show I’m totally “gone” on 🙂

        I think I might still have my copy of Dragons. I’ll have to poke around int he bookcase.

        And I seem to remember seeing somewhere you were a child of the 80s. I was a teen in the 70s!
