Q&Q Writer Series Featuring Adrienne Kress

Adrienne Kress is a writer and actress born and raised in Toronto, Canada.  I met her for the first time at the Toronto MG/YA Writers Group. A vibrant, bubbly personality, and a great writer to boot, Adrienne is a fun person to while away the evening with.
The starred review in Publishers Weekly praised her first novel Alex &  the Ironic Gentleman as “a wonderful blend of whimsy and moral” and at the heart of this story is Alex Morningside, a lovable tomboy with a knack for trouble and a quest for adventure

Read more about Adrienne on her website here. Her latest book The Friday Society will be released December 6, 2012 by Dial. Can't wait!

Here's the Q&Q scoop:

1) In one word, how would you describe your personality?
2) What is your deepest desire?
Buttered toast.
3) Your greatest fear?
4) Your favourite colour?
5) A song you can't help singing along with, every time you hear it?
Any Disney/Musical number. But definitely also Adam Lambert's "What Do You Want From Me". Which can only be sung loud and proud. While doing the cool-down for Body Pump at the gym.
6) A movie that made you cry?
Wait, there's a movie that doesn't make me cry?
7) A book you have read more than five times? Or a book that influenced you the most?
As an answer to both questions: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
8) From your own oeuvre: your favorite child?
I don't answer questions that use the word "oeuvre". But I am now hungry for eggs.
9) One thing you hate about being a writer?
The voices in my head.
10) One thing no one knows about you (and now will)?
That despite evidence to the contrary, every time I see Steven Spielberg interviewed, there's a moment where I truly think he's related to me and that we've met several times. I have no idea why this is.

Thanks for spending time here, Adrienne!
