It’s time to play Book Trivia! Periodically, we scour the Internet for interesting authors who would like to play Book Trivia with us. By answering our book trivia questions, we get to learn things about the author no one else knows! So, let’s get ready…let’s play…Book Trivia!

Rie McGaha…fantasy that keeps you up www.riemcgaha.com.
Thank you for playing Book Trivia with us, Rie! Here are your questions:
If Tom Hanks, in the movie Cast Away, unearthed a copy of Blood Line, how would that help Tom find a way off the island?
There would be two ways Blood Line could help Tom. First, he could meet Josh and Jessie and either one could turn him into a werewolf and with that super strength, he could swim to civilization—or he could get real chummy with Ganda, who is half wolf and half witch and she could make a little magic with him!
Everyone knows rock star idol Britney Spears is always in trouble with everything you can think of. In what way could your book help her and set her life back on track?
Oh my…if Brit met one of the werewolves when they weren’t in a good mood, I suppose they could scare her straight!
You have a chance to appear on the hit talent show for authors, American Book Idol, with judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, and Kara DioGuardi determining whether your book will make it to Hollywood and become a big screenplay. What would impress them more – your book cover, an excerpt or your best review – and why?
I would make the biggest impression on them because I embody my stories and I usually agree with Simon about things, so no one has been more critical of my work than I’ve been.
Hulk Hogan, the famous wrestler and star of his own reality show, has invited you and your book to appear on his show. One catch. You have to read a passage out of it to convince him you are star material. What part would you read?
I’ve found that the he-man types tend to blush the most when faced with something hot, sexy, and tempting, so I’d read one of the erotic sex scenes.
They’ve invented a board game using the theme of your book. What would the title of it be that would be different from your book and which retail store would they place it to make the most sales?
Fantasy Nights…and it would be a Victoria’s Secret exclusive!
The Arbor Day Foundation has decided to pick one tree in your honor because of your writing brilliance. What kind of tree is it and why did they choose that tree in relation to your book?
The mighty oak tree because some things just stand the test of time and stories like this one are read over and over again.
President Barack Obama has become the author of several books and he has requested your presence at a special hush hush meeting to discuss ways to promote it. Through luck of the draw, you were chosen. What would be the first thing you would tell Barack?
ROFL…do we really want to go there?
Finally, you just got word that your book has received the 2009 NY Times Bestselling Book Award and you have to attend the ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan. Anyone who’s anyone will be there and it’s your shot for stardom. On stage, you must give an acceptance speech. What would you say and who would you thank?
Oh my goodness, I truly never expected to be standing here tonight in front of so many people who I’ve admired for so many years. This is such an honor and I really think someone needs to check the envelope and make sure they didn’t get the name wrong! Thank you so much, I’m nearly speechless, but I would like to thank my family for their support. My husband, Nathan, for his support and having the goofy dream that became Blood Line. My daughter, Lisa, for insisting I submit my first novel for publication; my daughter, Rocky, for keeping me laughing through all the rejections; my son, Michael, who never read a book until mine was published and said he was just waiting for something really good to come out; and my United States Marine son, Cody, for helping me with some of the scenes in Calen-My Soul To Keep Trilogy that allowed me to finish the book. Also, thank you, Jill Noble, my editor who has encouraged me and actually said she has “never seen so much raw talent”, and Fiona Jayde, who designs the cover art and does a spectacular job at it. And
last, but not least, my buddy and fellow author, Bryl Tyne, for making me laugh! Thank you all very much.
