I Need Friends Friday: "Elizabeth"

Every Friday I interview a different person and share that interview with you. Perhaps they will be a fellow-author. Perhaps one of my neighbors. Maybe the bagger at the grocery store. A member of my family. A follower of this blog. Maybe it will be you! Hey, it could happen.

I am excited to interview today's guest. We are somewhat acquainted, but I don't really know much about her. As per the rules here at, she has been given a code name because she is a minor. She has also been given a code name because she is cool like that.

Let's meet "Elizabeth."

SME: Welcome to INFF!

Elizabeth: Thank you so much!

SME: You were among the first to volunteer when it looked like INFF was going to be shut down for good... so thanks for that!

Elizabeth: I love to read INFF each week.

SME: It's certainly a break from normal, I'll say that much. And of course it is an excuse for me to discuss food... one of my favorite subjects.

Elizabeth: Food is a wonderful subject.

SME: So are you more of a dessert person, or are you loyal to main dishes?

Elizabeth: Desserts all the way!!!

SME: Amen, sistah! Do you have a favorite? (I know, it's sooo hard to pick)

Elizabeth: I love it when I can find a really amazing Cinnamon Roll.

SME: Oh, yes. Cinnamon Rolls are a source of deep, lasting joy in my life.
Do you have a favorite subject in school?

Elizabeth: I love History. It is so much fun to learn about people who lived in the past.

SME: I LOVED history too! I still do. Is there a particular time period your drawn to, or is it an overall fascination?

Elizabeth: I love LDS Church history and the revolutionary time period.

SME: Do you see yourself pursuing history as far as a career or a college major in the future, or more as an enjoyable hobby?

Elizabeth: I would pursue it as a hobby not a career.

SME: Do you have another career in mind? (Wow. I'm starting to sound like a nagging guidance counselor, aren't I?!)

Elizabeth: I am leaning towards the accounting way of things. Do you have any guidance?

SME: Hmmm. Accounting was not my best subject. I barely survived it in college. My guidance would be... pay attention in Math class. That was sage, wasn't it?

Elizabeth: I manage to pay attention and have done some basic accounting.

SME: Perhaps you would like to do my taxes for me next year. You'd likely get less of a headache from it than I do every year.

Elizabeth: Sorry not there yet!

SME: Darn. Well, do you have a favorite continent?

Elizabeth: Europe, I would love to see the places over there!

SME: Me, too. I plan imaginary trips all the time. But someday I'm going to get over there. (That's what I keep telling myself)

Elizabeth: I love to watch and read book about the area and the regency time period.

SME: I'm sure you'd never guess it (*ahem*), but I love reading about the Regency era, as well. We have so much in common!!

Elizabeth: It is so wonderful and different from what normally is written.

SME: And there was so much going on that any history lover can't help but be fascinated.
If you're up for a game, I've got one for you!

Elizabeth: I love games!

SME: We're going to play "Rapid Fire Q&A: Literary Edition" - I'll ask you a series of questions having to do with books and you give me the very first answer that comes to mind!

Elizabeth: Sounds good.

SME: No wrong answers, just a "getting to know you" thing. And you automatically are crowned INFF Champion just for playing!

Elizabeth: I like the sounds of this.

SME: Here we go... Name a book you remember reading as a child

Elizabeth: green eggs and ham

SME: An author you read in elementary school

Elizabeth: Can't remember a specific only book titles

SME: A book you read in elementary school (see how I changed that up?!?!)

Elizabeth: The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle

SME: A book you had to read that you didn't really like

Elizabeth: The book I just mentioned. It is the one that first comes to mind because I didn't like it.

SME: A book you've read that you ended up liking more than you thought you would

Elizabeth: Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I read on a bargain with my sister.

SME: Your favorite book genre

Elizabeth: Romance and Historical mixed

SME: Your favorite book of all time (or at least one you really, really, really liked)

Elizabeth: I love all of Traci Hunter Abramson books. Not historical but a really amazing story with romance

SME: Favorite author of historical romances who has interviewed you for her blog?

Elizabeth: Sarah M. Eden By a long shot!

SME: Phew!!!! I was a little nervous there.

Elizabeth: No need to get nervous no one else compare with genre you write.

SME: It seems to me, Miss Elizabeth, that you are a reader of exquisite taste and refinement. Thus, I am honored to crown you INFF Champion!

Elizabeth: Thank You for the amazing Honor!

SME: This calls for a trip to the Portrait Gallery!

Elizabeth: The portrait is my favorite part.

*the sound of extra-fine permanent markers gliding effortlessly on parchment paper*

Elizabeth: What a beautiful picture!

SME: I saw a pair of red shoes just like those the other day and I fell in love right there in the store. I probably wouldn't last an hour in them without breaking my ankle, but they were definitely cute.

Elizabeth: They are the Highlight of the Picture.

SME: Definitely fab! That brings us to the final question of the interview. Top 5 reasons this is the best blog interview you've ever done. Ready. Go.

Elizabeth: 1.It is my first blog interview
2. It is with a wonderful author
3. I love INFF
4. It made the day fun
5. It is like a dream come true

SME: "A dream come true." I like that. Not mention I'm relieved it wasn't a "nightmare come true." That would be extremely depressing.

Elizabeth: A Nightmare is something that is best left where it came from.

SME: Thanks for being my Friday Friend, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth: Thank you for interviewing me!

SME: *cue exit music* Well, this has been "I Need Friends" Friday. Come back next week when I will make another friend!!
