One of my favorites was an interview in 2011 with Molly Shapiro. How good is an interview with a recipe for cookies included??? I also liked it because she had her debut novel just out then. As I want to be a writer myself someday, it's nice to read interviews like that :)

I've been a follower for just a short time but have loved it so far, I visit your blog at least a couple times a day. Love hearing about new books to add to my every growing to-be-read pile on goodreads lol. I'm not sure if you've interviewed her yet since I'm a newbie but Cecelia Ahern is one I would love to hear about if you havent yet.
