Sonia Gensler: The Revenant Q&A Part 3

Today we bring you the final part of our three-part interview with Sonia Gensler, author of The Revenant. Be sure to check out part 1 and part 2, then read our flash questions with Sonia below:

If they made a Sonia Gensler candle, what would it smell like?

Either coconut and almond . . . or oatmeal and cinnamon.  I like dessert smells.

Favorite cartoon?

“South Park”

Chocolate or vanilla?

Chocolate – in particular, Scharffen Berger’s Nibby Dark Chocolate.

Your personal theme song?

If I’m in a writing mood, it might be “The Ghost Pavane” from the film CREATION. The song suits my historical/gothic mindset. But if I want to sing at the top of my lungs, I might choose . . . oh, something from Duran Duran, because I never get tired of them! (Yes, I’m showing my age.)

You’re on a deserted island and have to read one book for the rest of your life. What is it?

Jane Eyre

Favorite book as a child?

The Little Fur Family or Bread and Jam for Frances

Secret talent?

Spotting English character actors in TV shows, films and plays. I usually know their names, but if I don’t, I could tell you at least three other TV shows or films I’ve seen them in.

I know Kim Harrington claims a similar talent. I suggest she and I do an actor spotting face-off. People could place wagers, and the proceeds would go to charity. I’m throwing down the gauntlet, Kim!

Thanks, Sonia! And Kim … when will we see this throw-down?
