Think about it. If you had only ten minutes to spend with an author you admire greatly, what three questions would you ask, and why?
One of my favorite authors is Joyce Carol Oates. I have had the privilege of meeting her once and have attended two of her readings. In part, my love is a juvenile one. I fell for her work when I was quite young and, like a first crush, her work still conjures adrenaline. My reader’s heart beats a little faster when I think about my first encounter with the short stories in Marriages and Infidelities and her collection of poems in Invisible Woman. It will be difficult to limit myself to asking her three questions.
