What's the Question?

You guys are amazing with the great ideas for my character! I never know what will make it through to a book's final draft, but I suspect that many of you will flip to a page and read something and think, "Hey--I thought of that!" Thank you!

In this spirit, I need more help. I have a couple of cool authors to interview in the next few weeks, and I must confess that I'm not always the best at dreaming up questions. (I wonder things like "What do you wear when you work at home? Have you convinced yourself (as I have) that if you're walking the dog in sweatpants at 3:00 in the afternoon, the neighbors think it's because you're SUCH a diligent worker, as opposed to a total couch potato?") But I hope we all have more interesting things to share with one another...

So here's my request: Think of someone in your life you'd love to know more about...if you could ask them ANYTHING, what would it be?

Which of your current passions in life will still stay as strong for you to try to live out when you are over 80 years old?
or
Which person in your past who is no longer living do you "hear" from (metaphorically speaking)the most in terms of giving you advice or encouragement?

I don't know if this would work for you. But I always love to know about "guilty pleasures". Like, what horribly embarrassing band or TV show do people like? Because I find more often than not that this becomes quite a laughable bonding point.
