Nic Joseph joins Bookish Devices today for Ten Questions. She’s a brand new author whose first book – Boy, 9, Missing – released in September 2016. If her future books are as good as this debut then we’ve got an excellent author on our hands.
Get to know Joseph a little and check out her interview. After you’re done, I highly recommend running out and grabbing your copy of Boy, 9, Missing.
Ten Questions vol. 2 #27 Nic Joseph
Bookish Devices: What is your favorite word?
Nic Joseph: “Obviously,” when it’s used ironically.
BD: What is your least favorite word?
BD: What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
NJ: Catching someone commit a simple, genuine act of kindness.
BD: What turns you off?
BD: What sound or noise do you love?
NJ: The sound of my 3-year-old niece when she giggles.
BD: What sound or noise do you hate?
NJ: The sound of my second alarm clock. I set both my phone and a beside alarm every night in case one malfunctions. (Because yes, I have an absurdly intense fear of oversleeping.) I like the sound of the first alarm—it lets me know I still have 15 minutes left! But the second one sounds like nails on a chalkboard. Seems fair to say that I also hate the sound of nails on a chalkboard.
BD: If you could have drinks with any author or literary figure, whom would you invite?
NJ: Ken Follett.
BD: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
NJ: Film editing.
BD: What profession would you not like to do?
NJ: Anything in the medical field. I can write about blood without a problem, but get light-headed at the sight of it.
BD: What would you choose for your last meal?
NJ: This is hard. I’ll go with sushi, with a side of chipotle chicken tacos (it’s not two meals if you eat them together). Oh, and sour patch watermelon for dessert. Obviously.
Nic, we appreciate you joining us!
