Check out @T_Rico1 as he bares it all on my blog....

As part of my, "If you show me yours, I'll show you mine" interview series, I'm joined today by T. Rico, author of Northern Lights

Tell me 3 fun facts about yourself
1.) I love to ski and hike  
2.) I turned my childhood night-terrors into great Science Fiction!
3.) I often experience extra sensory perception and have been visited by ghosts

If you could bring one of your book characters to life for only one night, which one would it be, and what would you do?

Freddy Jorenby he is a doctor and ancient alien who never left our planet. I would talk to him about his ulterior motives for staying. Is it a “New World Order” or a genuine interest in the race he created?  

Is there anyone you’ve always secretly thought of as sexy that other people might find strange? If so, who?

Lucille Ball – Humor is sexy

I agree. Humor is extremely sexy.

What’s the worst/oddest present that you’ve ever received?

Worst  = Neckties for work when I no longer wore ties to work – No thought put into a gift is a gift that should not be given. Oddest = A calendar when half the year was over? REALLY?

Confession time: What’s on your i-pod right now?

The Good: Classic Rock Beatles / Zeppelin / Pink Floyd / Genesis
The Bad: Hanson Brothers – I actually liked one of their tunes m-bop I think it was
The Ugly: Probably some Eminem type stuff I was told was good. But I still can’t back ANY of the hatred he puts forth in his tunes.

I have a lot of the same music on mine.

Do you have any tattoos?

Yes – A Blackbird flying across a sun with the Words “Take these broken wings and learn to fly” from the Beatles tune. I got it as homage to my mom who passed last year and prior to her passing broke both arms.

What’s your favorite snack?

Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip Cookies – I actually sometimes sleep-eat them, and don’t realize it until I wake up with crumbs on my face and pillow!

As an insomniac who takes sleeping pills, I relate to this answer.

What’s your ultimate fantasy?

Spending the night at the ice hotel in Sweden sleeping on fur pelts atop blocks of ice, sipping frozen vodka shots and making love until we melt that block of ice.

I love that response. Thank you for joining me today.
