Goodmorning H/F Members our mission, is to come up with a Dead Author Spoof Interview. It is all in fun and for the PBS Blog.

This will be a group effort and we already have the go ahead from TPTB. Question, answers, bio, the works,  Did I say this will be a group effort.

First, we need a Victim Author 

What would be fun is if any of you really know an authors work, and biography you would step in and act the part for the interviewee.    The questions should be a little silly.   Think "The Actors Studio" from Bravo Channel.  As funny as this group is we could either have a blast, or completely humiliate ourselves.   If that is the case I am going to throw Cathy under the bus because this was her idea!

Spoofee's

Alexendre Dumas....  Cathy and Valli kown his work well,  who else don't be shy!

I like the Dumas idea as well. We could have fun with Charlotte Bronte or Nathaniel Hawthorne as well. I know of a couple of scorching Amazon reviews from ignorant youngsters that could liven up the questions.

That's good.  Too bad Moppet isn't a member here.

Just think of the questions we could ask Nathaniel Hawthorne about this book review.
