Tour Post #19

Tour Co-hosts:
The Writers Voice is a multi author blog where prominent authors from around the web come together and share their thoughts on all things literary or otherwise. Here is a peek at our team of authors!

When you were growing up,
what did you want to be?

“Everything. I wanted to be everything. Though mostly an artificial intelligence specialist.”
–Emma Michaels

“It varied year by year. For a while, I thought I wanted to be a doctor or veterinarian. I even took Latin as my foreign language because I thought it would give me a solid base in medicine. The thing is, I don’t like science or math. That just goes to show you that we have no idea what we’re doing when we’re young!”
–Raine Thomas

“A writer”
–Quinn Loftis

“I wanted to be a ballerina, an archaeologist, and a rock star. All at the same time. The problem was, I had never taken a ballet lesson, I don’t really like getting dirty, and I can’t sing at all. So I decided that being a writer would allow me to be all of those things whenever I wanted!”
–Shana Norris

“A dance teacher (which I am!).”
–Amy Maurer Jones

“Growing up I always wanted to do something that had to do with animals in some way. I have rarely encountered a domestic pet that doesn’t like me, cats in particular.”
–Tanya Contois

“A fantasy character.”
–Carlyle Labuschagne

“A zookeeper; I actually took one of those aptitude tests as an adolescent and zookeeper is what it suggested I become. I was like, "YES!" this is a sign from God, lol. I've always been a big animal lover. Then when I became a teenager, my passionate love for animals some how mellowed and like most teenybopper girls of the 80s, boys became the focus.”
–Victoria Simcox

“I wanted to be a fighter jet pilot. My grandfather was in the RAF and he used to take us to these air shows every year. My sister and I loved them—her even more than me, I think. I was dead set on flying fighter jets, until the RAF recruiter said I was out of luck. I was a woman, shortsighted, and too tall. Basically, I was screwed.”
–Frankie Rose

“A mommy, nurse, teacher, mermaid, seamstress, Olympian, a spy…”
–Brenda Pandos

“I’ve ALWAYS wanted to be an author. There was never anything else in my mind. I could only see myself writing every since I was eight years old. Before that I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to be a ninja…I remember that. But other than that I had nothing but “author” as my future career.”
–Michael Loring

“Famous - I wanted to be in movies or on TV.”
–Devyn Dawson
