Follow Friday - Hanging Out With Authors

Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question: If you could hang out with any author (living) who would it be and what you would want to do?
Hmmm.  That's hard because I try (my best) to mentality seperate authors and their books.  In the age of twitter it also feels like I kinda do hang out with authors in a virtual sense.

1. Matt de la Pena
Easy. We'd go to a UK basketball game.  We already talk sports on twitter (he kindly offered condolences on UK's terrible terrible season).  I think he'd appreciate the magic of a game in Rupp Arena (because Rupp Arena is one of my favorite places in existence).  It's also part of my master plan to convert all my friends to being UK fans.

2. Rachel Hawkins
I just finished School Spirts which reminded me how much I love Rachel Hawkins' sense of humor. I just kinda want to watch a TV show (Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries, whatever), drink and snark with her.  Bonus if there's a drinking game involved and I get to hear stories of Small Son.

3. Melina Marchetta
I want her to show me Australia.  That's not too big of a feat?  Or I could just fangirl and hope some of her talent rubs off on me.  Writing is contagious, right?

I emailed one of my favourite authors when I was visiting her city, and we got to spend the whole day hanging out and having fun. I'm sure it helps that she's an indie author and not a big name - but I just love that the internet makes it so easy to get to know awesome people even if they live in a different country.
