Author Interview - Christina Henry
I draw inspiration from: Pretty much everything.
Favorite place to read a book: At home, on the couch, with a cup of tea and no people trying to talk to me.
Book character I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with: Hercule Poirot.
The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: I read THE LORD OF THE RINGS when I was 12 years old and decided then that I wanted to be a writer.
Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook? I hate e-readers. I don’t have a preference between hardcover or paperback but the book has to be made of paper. I have a few series that I prefer as audiobooks, like Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London series.
The last book I read: Final Girls by Riley Sager
Pen & paper or computer: I write all my books chronologically by hand in a notebook and then edit as I add to the typed manuscript.
Book character I think I’d be best friends with: Bilbo Baggins. He would always be happy to have you drop round for tea.
If I wasn’t an author, I’d be a: Field scientist of some sort. I’ve always loved anthropology, paleontology, biology, primatology – I think I’d like to be outside somewhere observing or digging.
Favorite decade in fashion history: Now. I am not interested in fashion, only in pants that don’t dig into my waist.
Place I’d most like to travel: Japan
My signature drink: Green tea
Favorite artist: Caravaggio
Number one on my bucket list: To learn to speak Japanese.
