Do you have a favorite movie?
My “favorite” anything changes constantly, but I really like the first Lego Movie. I think it’s a great message delivered in such a unique way. Plus, I love Legos, so I was totally geeking out over the awesome constructions throughout the whole thing.
Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
Actually, the novel I think would make the best movie hasn’t been published yet. It’s a young adult science-fiction adventure set on Mars called The Price of Tomorrow. It has car chases, space travel, espionage, criminal organizations, street gangs, first love, bio-engineered disguises, and more. I’m hoping to find representation for it soon, but YA sci-fi is kind of a hard sell right now.
As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
When I was in my last year of college I had a roommate who loved to draw furries. For those who don’t know, a furry is an anthropomorphized animal character, an animal with human characteristics. Anyway, this roommate loved to create furries to represent all of her friends. One day, she presented me with a beautiful sketch of a fox-woman and explained why she thought a fox matched my personality. Foxes are shy, clever, agile, curious, resourceful, etc. Now, I’d never considered what animal might best represent me before that, but I fell in love with my fox picture that day. So, without a doubt, my avatar is a fox. 🙂
By the way, you can see some of Rea’s furries on deviant art at: www.deviantart.com
