If I could plan my “perfect” panel of authors and characters to speak at a conference, it would be…
The world Rick Riordan has created is the perfect balance of action, humor, and education. I have learned so much about mythology without even realizing it.
Sarah J. Maas
Sarah J. Maas’ world and character building skills are second to none. I could get lost inside of her stories forever*
*except for the fact that I wouldn’t survive for two and a half seconds…
Do I really need to say anything else? No? I didn’t think so.
Mary E. Pearson
Queen for reasons I can’t even get in to. Just. Read. The Remnant Chronicles.
What good is a panel without the ACTUAL CHARACTERS?*
*yes, we do have those capabilities and in AubreyLand it will happen. Just wait.
…is my spirit animal, and we would probably be best friends, and his sarcastic wit is given an A++.
GAH WILLL WILLL WILLL (Jem would of course come too). Just please.
Some characters need no explanation.
Percy Jackson & Annabeth Chase
Do you guys think Annabeth and Hermione would get along or butt heads? A&P are the dream team and are great individually, but together…
Bring on the crazy. You all know I love Winter.
There are certainly more, but some of them are dangerous and I’m not sure they wouldn’t kill me.
Authors: How do you create distinct characters and story lines? How do you stay true to who you are as an author?
Characters: How do you not make quick judgments about other people (i.e. this guy is a bad guy, just kidding not anymore???)
What questions would you ask?
Clearly Leo Valdez and I would moderate because then it would be the funniest panel ever.
