Senior Member Interview

Why did you choose Blue?

With the Blues, I found my home. I was drawn to the amazing ladies of the Blue Ajah as a Novice... and as an Accepted beginning my visitations, I learned how wonderful they really were. I feel like Blue is family.. No matter where you go, they're always ready to welcome you back.

Are you like the Blues in the books? Do you plot and manipulate? Do you travel a lot?

To some extent, yes. I do plot, but I'm not all that manipulative. I also do travel often, especially for work these days.

Do you have a favorite Blue Ajah character from the novels?

Pretty predictable answer, but I do love Moiraine and Siuan!

How long have you been a fan of the Wheel of Time series?

Since around April of 2006.

How did you first get into the series?

A friend kept harassing me into reading them and I finally gave in.

Who is your favorite "hero"?

Probably Perrin or Egwene. Some of the others are too annoying.

Favorite bad guy/gal?

Lanfear.

Favorite book and scene?

That's hard to choose!

If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain?

Probably an Aes Sedai. I always wanted to be magical so bad, so that would be the most logical place for me.

How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become a Senior Member?

When I started reading the books, I thought the first one was pretty awesome and wanted to find out more about it. I stumbled across TarValon.net during a google search and figured I'd join. I stayed because I loved the people here and made so many friends, and I really loved the forums and wanted to be a real part of them.

What do you do in "real life"?

Work, mostly. I'm a full-time paralegal/medical NCO for the Army National Guard. I also spend a lot of time with friends when I can.

Do you have any hobbies?

Shopping! I also enjoy reading, obviously, along with everyone else here. I try to travel as often as I can and love finding new places and restaurants to visit.

What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

Broadway musicals, 80's, classic rock, some oldies, and some newer artists... I just despise almost all things rap and R&B.

What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?

Movies: Stardust, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, anything Disney, P.S. I Love You, just about ANY sappy romantic comedies, etc. Television Shows: Glee, Once Upon A Time, Army Wives, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Awkward., Smash.. I think there's a few others.

Aside from The Wheel of Time, what are a few of your favorite books/series?

The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, The Southern Vampire Mysteries, almost anything by Dean Koontz, Stephen King or Nicholas Sparks.. Divergent, The Sword of Truth series... I'm currently on a strange young adult fantasy/horror/whatever kick and a huge dystopian novel kick as well.

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

I wanted to be a concert pianist at first, and then I mostly just wanted to perform with Broadway musicals in the pit orchestras. Somehow, I wound up in the military. Close enough.
