One Word Interview with Anna Del C. Dye

Today we have the delightful Anna Del C. Dye in the writing chair. She is the author of the young adult Elfs fantasy series. Take it away, Anna!

What fictional world would you most like to live in? 
Anduriah, the world were my Elfs live.

Sounds terrific. I'd like to visit sometime.
You have been set down in the middle of your latest book! Weapon of choice?
Two stylistic short swords, worn across my back.

Those sound both beautiful and handy.

Which of your characters is most like you?
Princess Adren, the main character in “The Silent Warrior Trilogy”. She has lost all her kindred and has to be adopted by another race. I left my Country at 21 and left everything I knew behind to be adopted by another race, customs, language, and love. :)

That's lovely. :)
What historical figure would you most like to have lunch with?
King Arthur at his round table, eating roasted pork, potatoes, corn, hot bread 

Wow. Wouldn't that be something!

You are having your favorite author over for dinner. What are you serving? 
That would be J. R. R. Tolkien and we would dine in the white halls of the White City, Middle Earth: rabbit stew, hot bread and ale. 

Awesome! Can I come too?

Thanks so much for being with us today, Anna!
