Senior Member Interview

Interview, January 29, 2008

Why did you choose Blue?

When I first guested with Blue, I felt truly welcome. Since then the Blues quickly became Sisters.

Are you like the Blues in the Books?

Yes, and no. While I am like the book Blues, I'm also like the book Whites.

Do you plot and manipulate? Do you travel a lot?

Perhaps. :look If I had more time and money I'd love to travel more.

How was your time as Citizen/Novice/Accepted?

It has been a while since I was both a citizen and I novice, but I did enjoy my time at each level. I enjoyed both my times as Accepted.

How did you get to read the Series?

Back in 1990 I was in a bookstore looking for a book to read, where I noticed "Eye of the World" on a shelf of featured fiction. It looked interesting so I decided to give it a try. I was immediately hooked.

Who's your favorite character of the Series? Favorite Nation?

Siuan, I like her attitude, even after she was stilled she had a resiliance to carry on. I don't have a favorite nation.

Have you ever attended any Real Life Functions? Did you like them if you did, and why? (Why do you think people should come to any future functions?)

I was at Dragon*Con in 2006 and 2007. I truly believe that if anyone has a chance to go to one, they should.

What kind of music do you like?

Rock, and Country-Rock.

What's the craziest/stupidest thing you've ever done?

Agreeing to marry my current husband after dating for only 5 weeks.

What job do you have?

Currently I type appraisals for a real estate company.

Do you have a pet?

I have 2 kitties named Libby and Rafta.

What languages do you speak?

English.

What profession did you want to have when you were a kid?

I wanted to be a pharmacist, but I was never able to pass chemistry.

Moiraine or Siuan?

Siuan.

Shienar or Saldaea?

Shienar.

Tea or coffee?

Either.

Books or movies?

Books.

A short bio about yourself.

At 41 I'm one of the older members on the site. When I was first raised Aes Sedai in March of 2006, it was as Aes Sedai of the White. In July of 2007 I returned to Accepted to re-explore my options because as much as I loved being White, I felt as if something was missing. That's when I found my home with the Blues. I don't regret for a minute the choices I've made here.
