Hi, everybody. Today, the spotlight shines down on Alica Gregoire, and her Slice of the Blog Pie.
If you had one day left to live, what’s one thing you’d want to spend that time on?
After I got over the never-ending anxiety attack of knowing when, exactly, I’d die, I’d want to spend my remaining time with my family and close friends. They would be the ones I’d miss the most.
What is your most prized possession?
I would say the cats. I’m very possessive of them and they’re also the first thing I look for when I get home. This might have to do with the fact that The Stripey One thinks she’s a ninja and The White One likes to go on walkabouts.
If cats don’t count (and they should), I’d say my book collection. There’s a lot of time and money sunk into that.
When did you first realize that you wanted to be a writer?
I’ve written since high school, but the first time I wanted to be a published one was in college. I was studying middle school education and had a pretty tough semester with a professor who made no sense. I’d come up with a new alternative career choice after every class. This was also the semester I first took creative writing and loved it.
Alicia is a Boston native and writes young adult contemporary and adult urban fantasy. She blogs at Slice of the Blog Pie, which covers a little bit of everything: writing tips and writer angst, cat stories, fandom galore, and weekly doses of zombie info. When she’s not blogging or plotting she can be found with her nose in a good book.
