Getting to Know Tina's Terrific Team! Jolie!

Please join me in welcoming another one of my Terrific Team Members. Jolie has been so excited about The Challenge that she approached US about helping. Talk about dedication!  

Bio: Jolie du Pre is a full-time published author, editor, article writer and blogger. Her novella, Litria, is available at Amazon. Visit her blog at Precious Monsters

1. Would you ever join a team that was headed off to colonize Mars?

Heck no! Humans are destroying the Earth. I don't want to participate in the destruction of Mars too.

2. What reason did you have to sign up for the A to Z and what did you expect to gain from entering?

My blog was new, and therefore, I wanted to sign-up with A to Z to bring people to my new blog. I expected to find lots of new readers, and that's exactly what happened. I'm very grateful to A to Z!

3. What rock star would you be?

If I could be a rock star, I'd be Stevie Nicks. I greatly respect her talents.

4. How do you comment - if someone posts 5,6,7 times a week .. once - or 3 times .. then each time or once or twice .. then each time I can't keep up .. but hate not supporting everyone ..

I respond to every comment I receive, unless it's on a blog post that's really old and one I’ve forgotten about. I think it's rude not to.

5. What is the most Underrated letter of the Alphabet?

X - The characters in my novellas The M Series are called Zxxtergins. Power to the X!

6. What movie did you watch that exceeded your expectations?

"End of Watch," starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña, is a drama about two police officers who work in South Central Los Angeles. The movie didn't get much attention; however, I enjoyed it better than “Argo” and “Lincoln,” two movies that got plenty of attention.

7. Describe the last Halloween costume you wore.
I was a naughty nurse, complete with white boots.

8. What makes life worth living?
It’s working my dream job as a full-time writer. I’ll never go back to my old life.

9. Cake or pie?
I can't afford to indulge in either, but it's pie when I do.

10. Where do you go to "Get away from it all"?
Staying out of online article writers forums is a great way to “get away from it all.” Article writers forums are dark, dreary places filled with whiners and complainers. Other than that - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Don't forget to check out Litria!  Thanks so much for all your hard work, and for sharing your talents with us on my team.

Hi Jolie - nice to meet you!

Tina, I've nominated you for an award. Please feel free to ignore it if you already have it - I'm sorry, I didn't check!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Jolie - fellow minion of Tina's!

Stevie Nicks - definitely has spunk as Brian says ...

I agree - it's essential not to be rude and thus reply to everyone's comments ..

You certainly hit the right group of people to blog with ... I think I'd be very disillusioned if I was elsewhere ... I consider this one of the best finds of my blogging career ... if you can call it that ..

Cheers for now and let's enjoy the A-Z challenge as minions of that Viking chick! Hilary
