Author Interview - Andrea Thome

Author I draw inspiration from:  Diana Gabaldon—I admire her ability to weave her characters in and out of her books so effortlessly.

Favorite place to read a book:  In bed or in my screened in porch.

Book character I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with:  Claire and Jamie Fraser from Outlander. (Although it would be weird for them to be in an elevator.)

Outlander
By Diana Gabaldon

The moment I knew I wanted to become an author:  I think in some ways I’ve always known, but the true desire resurfaced after the death of my mom who was also a writer.  

Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook:  Paperback is my favorite, but I read ebooks and listen to audiobooks as well.  (I have the most talented narrator for my series of books—she’s a Yale-trained actress, and I could listen to her all day long!) I think all three  have value.

The last book I read:  I actually just re-read Stephen King’s On Writing.  Before that, Sing, Unburied Sing by Jesmyn Ward.

Pen & paper or computer:  Computer, hands down. I can’t even read my own handwriting anymore.  I type really fast, so I’m impatient when working with a pen.

Book character I think I’d be best friends with:  Laina Ming, the lead character in my new book, House of Belonging.  She’s the kind of friend I like; strong, independent and funny.

If I wasn’t an author, I’d be a:  Photographer. I take all of the pictures for my covers.  I love to travel too, so I’d probably make a pretty decent gypsy as an alternative.

Favorite decade in fashion history:  Ooh. That’s tough. Probably the 1960’s.  You had everything from the buttoned-up classic look of Jackie Kennedy to the free style of the hippies.  I like diversity in fashion. There needs to be something for everyone.

Place I’d most like to travel:  Everywhere! But my top three uncharted locales are Iceland, Scotland and Bhutan.

My signature drink:  I’m not a big drinker, but when I do drink, it’s almost always whiskey, neat…and sometimes an Old Fashioned.

Favorite artist:  Music artist? U2    Favorite Painter? Vermeer  

Number one on my bucket list:  I’d love to drive across Canada pulling an airstream trailer, then head south and drive back again across the U.S.  I love the nostalgia of camping. I’d light a fire every single night, prop my feet up and write about my travels and the people I met along the way. There is so much to see in the world and so little time.
