Welcome back to Romance Weekly. Eden Ashe is on the hop today. Make sure to check out her blog post later on.
Susan Scott Shelley asks, given the choice of any author in the world (living or deceased), whom would you want as a dinner guest?
I would love to have dinner with L. M. (Lucy Maud) Montgomery. Anne of Green Gables was an all time favorite when I was a kid. I probably have more reliable memories of the movie than the books. I watched them every chance I could get. I probably watched the movies thousands of times.
Given that L.M. Montgomery is a Canadian author, and I am from the US I was met with a lot of blank stares from friends and family alike when I would go on and on about this author and the movies that were made, about how funny and sweet and just scrumptious Anne with an e’s story was.
I’d love to ask the author if she wrote Anne based on some of her experiences as a teacher. There were some pretty hilarious scenes and perhaps some revenge scenes against mean girls. I always wondered if any of them were based on a real person.
I’d also just love to find out what the author was like. What it was like to live when she did and how difficult it was for her to become a writer during that time in history.
Yes, it would be a very nice dinner.
I’m going to dig out my old copy of Anne of Green Gables.
Thanks for stopping by today. I’m curious who J.J. Devine is having for dinner. Hop on over and find out.
See you next week!
