Special Christmas Interview with Author Erin Danzer

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

Charlie Brown Christmas. As a kid, I watched this every year with my parents. Now, I'm trying to get my kids to watch it with me. I like that it explains the true meaning of Christmas as well as shows how commercial the holiday has become.

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

Theo James

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

Best Christmas: there are two: the year I got my first laptop and the year my youngest son was born (though he was born on the 29th).
The worst: 2003, the year my mom died on Dec 16th.

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

Being with my family... and opening presents. I love presents!

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

Hmm, for who loves Christmas the most I would have to say Andi and Ronnie from the Spiral Defenders series are tied. They both have that part of me and love opening presents, too. ;) As for who hates Christmas... I don't think I've written a character yet who feels that strongly towards the holidays. I have a bunch who are indifferent to it, though (people y'all haven't met yet, obviously).

Thanks, Erin!

Ever since she was small, Erin's imagination has led her to tell stories and create worlds, including the world of Kalearnia (found in the Spiral Defenders series). Her school notebooks were doodled with pictures and writing notes in the margins beside class notes. No scrap of paper was safe from all of Erin's notes and creations. But writing wouldn't pay the bills for a very long time.

Erin spent three summers giving away smiles as she handed out clothes to the working populace of an amusement park. It was the best three summers of her life (also where she met her husband). Since then, Erin has become a mediocre cookie decorator, learned to make a mean pizza in less than two minutes, and has sold dresses as well as window dressings. 

When she isn't exploring worlds of her own creation, you can find Erin with her nose stuck in the worlds of others, supporting Indie Authors everywhere, hanging out on Facebook, or spending time with her kids, husband, and their cat. Erin loves connecting with her readers. To learn more, visit her website:
