Betting Off Dead by Tonya Kappas Blog Tour

Interview with Tonya Kappes
1.     If you could live a day in the life of a fictional character, who would it be?
It would by my fictional character of witch June Heal. She is a good hearted helper and wants to really help everyone who comes in her store. She’s a good friend and a loving family member. She has it all!
2.     What is your all time favorite book? And what books are currently on your nightstand?
The Giving Tree….I hope you don’t care it’s a children’s book! I adore it because I try to be as kind and loving and find the joy in every bit of life. The Giving Tree is a great lesson for all ages and it’s a favorite gift to give someone too.
Currently I’m writing, so I don’t have anything on my nightstand but pen and paper for the late night character calls I get in my head while trying to catch some shut eye.
3.     If you weren’t an author, what would your dream job be?
Well, I’ve had that job too. I was a child therapist before I was able to write as a full time job. I love children and loved helping them and families. It was a wonderful job that lifted my spirits. I still keep my certification up just in case the book gig goes south.
4.     Do you read and/or comment on reviews? I do not read reviews. Everyone is subject to their opinion and regardless of what it is, I will continue to write because it’s my passion. Plus I know not everyone is going to like my voice and that’s okay with me.
5.     A lot of your books have include magical elements. Where does that inspiration come from? Oh! Growing up I loved to watch shows like Bewitched, Mork and Mendy, and I Dream of Jeannie. I think all of these shows played into a fun make believe of what if and helped me escape from the world a little bit. That is my goal as an author. I want to give my readers a fun light book where they don’t have to think so much and are able to get lost into a make believe world where they can escape from the every day life stress.
6.     What is one question that you hear too many times during interviews? And a question that you wish someone would ask? Which literary great would you like to have dinner with, dead or alive.  I LOVE all questions about my fur babies and human babies!
