When I “Fall into the World of Extraordinary” I always want to…
…land on my feet and run with the characters. By the end of the story, I want readers feeling as exhilarated by the journey as I did writing.
You have been invited to an exclusive compound that is prepared for the Zombie apocalypse, however everyone must have a skill to enter. What would be your skill to enter this club?
My skill is how to safely lower my body temperature for long periods of time to pass undetected through a group of Zombies looking for the next warm-blood to feed upon. They also want me to share the secret formula I developed for times when Zombies are near: “Eau du Rotting Corpse.” (The secret dies with me, so they best keep me alive.)
For the apocalypse, you can only carry one backpack…. What would you pack?
I’d pack in my leather backpack, a water bottle (with water and purifying filter,) small mirror, Swiss army knife and small sharpening stone, Culpeppers Complete Herbal (book), ball of (jute) twine, a bandana, magnifying glass, a machete encased within a leather sheath and rolled up in wool blanket, a full plastic bottle of “Eau du Rotting Corpse,” and of course a change of socks and underwear (to keep mom happy).
