Today I am thrilled to have the very awesome Shay Fabbro, author of Dangerous Reflections and Twisted Reflections, here, hanging out on my virtual couch. She has convinced me to play a game of 20 questions with her…which I haven’t played in a really long time. So, cross your fingers for me! My brain probably needs the exercise. Take it away, Shay!
Okay folks! The lovely Laird has agreed to my fun little game of twenty questions! She will ask me yes/no questions and try to narrow down what historical figure I am posing as today. I’m not dressed up or anything since THAT would give everything away.
Want to play along? You’ll have to make sure to avoid the temptation to scroll down and see the answer before hand! Read each question and see if you can guess who I am before Laird!
Ready? Set??? GO!
1. Are you a man?
2. Hmmm…. OK. That means you are a woman. Wait. Did we rule out animals? Are you human?
Bwahahaha! *snort* Yes, I’m human
3. Are you a rebel?
I wouldn’t call myself a rebel
4. Were you born after 1900?
5. Are you a writer?
Yes, I write scifi/fantasy novels… Oh, wait you mean my historical character?? No
6. Hmmm. I’m not making much progress, am I? What to ask…. Eek! I only have 15 questions left!
Ok, so you are a human, woman, born before 1900, not a rebel, not a writer.
Are you a political figure?
Hmmm…had to consult with hubby on this one. I’d have to say yes but not in a super obvious way
7. Are you American?
8. This is getting tough. Isn’t there a version of 20 questions where you can give me, you know, a hint? lol.
It is possible that I suck at this. OK. Hmmm… Did you live before the Renaissance?
YES!! Had to double check the years since the Renaissance spanned 4 centuries And after this long of time, I forget the years I was born and died! LOL
9. Is this the part where people who are really good at this game already have it narrowed down and start throwing names out? Are you religious?
10. Are you a saint?
I AM! Too bad my real self isn’t a saint
11. Are you Joan of Arc?
YES! *bows* Nicely done
Thanks for playing 20 questions! I thought this would be a fun way to introduce my YA/fantasy novels involving time travel. The heroine of the stories, Alexis Davenport, sees the reflections of strange girls in the mirror. She tries to figure out who the girl is so she’ll know what time period she’ll eventually be traveling back to. Not as easy as it sounds, however, even for a girl gifted with historical knowledge that surpasses her fifteen years.
