WSD: A Wal-mart woman put a curse on you? You've remembered that so how did it affect you?
John Corey Whaley: Well, I believe she spoke gibberish, so I never actually knew what the curse was--and, look, who's to say she didn't bless me or something? I have no idea. She grabbed my hand, chanting something nonsensical, and walked away. I guess it's given me a good, weird story--and what better for an author to have, eh?
WSD: What's your favourite drink and how do you like it served?
John Corey Whaley: Coffee---and I like it with cream and a little sugar, maybe some coconut oil. Please no almond milk in there. Please.
WSD: If you know any Star Trek jokes, can you please tell me one (or two) so that I can repeat it and impress my friends and family?
John Corey Whaley:
What did Captain Picard say to the tailor when his uniform ripped?
Make it sew.
(That's the only one I know and it's so bad hahahaha)
WSD: Oh yeah, that's bad!
WSD: What books should be on every responsible reader's shelves?
John Corey Whaley: Mine. I'm KIDDING. I think a responsible reader is someone who reads a wide list of authors from around the world--who write for different age groups, fiction or non-fiction. Poetry too--a responsible reader has books of poetry and the sciences and maybe a weird book about birds or contagious diseases thrown in the mix.
WSD: What's the most highly illogical thing you've ever done (or one of them)?
John Corey Whaley: I quit my job as a teacher to tour with a book no one had ever heard of. It worked!
WSD: Do you like dogs or cats?
John Corey Whaley: Both, but my boyfriend and I have a cat named Banjo. He is like our child.
WSD: OK, he likes dogs so so he gets the big thumbs up! My review of Highly Illogical Behaviour is here.
