I'm Matthew MacNish.
I'm the author of the publishing and query critique blog: The QQQE
I co-author the YA literature blog: YA Confidential
I co-author the MG literature blog: Project MG Mayhem
I'm an aspiring KidLit Novelist, whose published short fiction you can find, here.
I collect vinyl records.
I love Star Wars, Anime, and Tolkien (yes I bought and watched The Hobbit on Blu-Ray last night - it was the third time I've seen it).
Here are my answers to some of the crazy questions we, and some of our readers, came up with:
"Where do you go to "Get away from it all"?"
I don't have time for that much anymore, but when I can, I like to hike in the mountains.
"Where do you hail from?"
"Name an item that you have too much of."
Records, I suppose.
“Your house in on fire; assuming your kids, pets, and other living things are safe, what do you grab as you head out the door?”
I'm really not a materialistic person, and I back-up my writing meticulously, but I suppose I would try to get my parents' ashes.
"Who is your favorite fictional character and why?"
Gandalf. I've wanted a Wizard for a best friend since I was three years old.
"Do you know how to 'Gangnam Style?'"
Yep. I used to be quite a dancer when I was younger. I could even breakdance a little, but I'm way too old and fat for that now.
Is there anything else you'd like to know? Ask away in the comments, and I'll come back to answer!
