DL White was at our last Wine with Writers in Atlanta, and added so much to the conversation that we were thrilled when she agreed to participate again this year as part of the author salon. And as luck would have it, she's got a new book out, 'The Guy Next Door: A Potter Lake Novel'. Definitely on my list to read before the event, because I love Potter Lake, and the characters I got introduced to when I read 'Leslie's Curl & Dye'.
One of my quirks, before I read a book is that after from reading the blurb, I always read the author's biographical or profile page. The information they share (lists of degrees and from where, or information about family and interests?) and how they share it (with humor, tongue-in-cheek, officiously?) also tells me a little something about how they might approach their writing. With these questions, DL tells us a little more than that. So here goes, DL White's 5 Quickfire Questions answered ...
Would you like to see into the future? Why?
Nooooo. I don't want to know! I don't LOVE surprises, but I feel like knowing the future takes all the fun out of living to create a great future for myself. I feel like it would make me lazy to know if i would/ would not be more successful.
Favorite book you’ve written?
I think Brunch at Ruby's will always be my favorite. I really, really love that book, those women, that sisterhood and those stories. Being honest, it's my comfort read. I return to it often, mostly in audio because Sharrell Palmer put her FOOT in that audiobook.
Are you spring, summer, fall, or winter? Please share why.
Summer. All summer all the time. Though late spring and early fall are also contenders, I love the heat. Up to mid 90's, I am good... I am rarely too hot and I love walking out of the house and not needing a jacket or long sleeves (except for restaurants that MUST have the air set at 59 degrees).
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Well, amazingly it wasn't KFC in my teens! I actually loved that job. When I first moved to GA I worked for a commercial audio company. I know the industry so it wasn't the work, it was the owner of the company! If you know me, you know I am not an emotional person, not a crier and it takes a lot to upset me. Dude had me in the copy room in tears on a weekly basis! I was so glad to get out of that job... I just WALKED. OUT.
What technology from science fiction do you wish existed?
Teleportation. Because, while I love a trip, I haaaate the airport! HATE!
There's probably a lot more you want to know about her than I was able to get in just five questions, and believe me when I tell you you'll want to know more about her work.
So, come meet DL White at Wine with Writers, there's still time to register!
