Things to Know About Featured Author Kristin Cashore

We learned a few things about September's featured author Kristin Cashore, and here are some of the juiciest tidbits! (Read the full list on readergirlz.com)

On the nightstand: A teetering pile of books; post-it notes; earplugs; one of those relaxing eye pillows; my Swiss Army knife

Favorite library: That's easy! The beautiful main branch of the Jacksonville Public Library.

Pets: I'm currently petless, but dream of the perfect cat.

Dream book tour: How about a tour in which I stay in one city for about two weeks? How about if the city is Rome? How about if my hotel is right next to the Pantheon?

Cure for writer's block: I don't know if I get writer's block, exactly, but I do have trouble writing sometimes because I'm pushing too hard and need a daydreaming/resting break. The cure at those times is to STOP WRITING.

Favorite outfit: Oh, that's easy: flannel PJs.

Stilettos or Uggs? The only thing I would ever use a stiletto for is self-defense.

Our kind of woman! Also, check out her blog for big bestseller news! Hooray, Kristin!!!

I think she might be my twin because I would have answered the questions just like her except for the pets. I love my two dogs although currently they are irritating each other just to do so. :)

Thanks for sharing,
