Top10 Then and Now: Alyssa Rose Ivy, Author of FORGED IN STONE, FLIGHT, and Many More

I don't know about you but I have been having fun with these Then and Now interviews. I love to see if these lovely authors have changed any of their answers. Read on to see what Alyssa had to say back in December of 2011 and now....

Then: December 2011

1. fav song/singer? I am a big Coldplay fan, and my current favorite song is Snow Patrol’s Just Say Yes.

2. fav season? Spring! I love those first few warm days and how beautiful everything is.

3. worst vacation? “Hurricane Break” trip to St. Louis during my sophomore year of college. After a twelve hour drive, sleeping on the floor, everyone getting sick and a near ticket, I was wishing we had stayed on campus even though classes were cancelled for the threat of a hurricane.

4. guilty pleasure? Reading with a cup of coffee and chocolate—it combines all three of my addictions into one.

5. fav book and/or author? My favorite recently read series is Fablehaven and Moby Dick is my all-time favorite book.

6. One item you cannot live without? Does coffee count?

7. hobby? Hiking and snorkeling

8. fav movie/actor/actress? I love Zooey Deschanel and Jude Law. I had my tongue tied fan experience when I saw Jude Law filming in New Orleans once.

9. fav food? Eggplant parmesan.

10. who would you like to meet? (dead or alive?) Franklin D. Roosevelt, I love U.S. history and would love to pick his brain about the depression era and the New Deal.

Now: July 2015

Just Say Yes by Snow Patrol. It’s my cell phone ringer.

Chocolate.  If that doesn’t count then eggplant parmesan.

10. who would you like to meet? (dead or alive?)
Franklin D. Roosevelt. I’m a U.S. History nerd and I’ve got so many questions for him about the New Deal.
