The Day of the Dieties?
Today's a young adult-friendly day! Tera Lynn Childs is a young adult author, Kelly McCullough's hero, Ravirn, is in college, and I know that I've got some teen readers of the Southern Witch series!
Also interestingly, both Tera's OMG series and Kelly's WebMage series feature Greek gods. So far, no Greek gods have turned up in the Southern Witch series...but you just never know when one might.

Southern Witch series - Quote of the Day
"Hey there, God. It's me again. Tammy Jo. I guess you've probably seen what's going on here in Duvall, but in case you've been too busy in some other part of the world to notice, I have to mention that I've kind of brought on an accidental Armageddon down here." She paused. "Yep. Sorry about that."

In addition to being a super talented Young Adult author, Tera Lynn Childs's one of the best road trip passengers of all time. If you scan back through my blogposts, you'll probably find a tale of our misadventures in Austin. (All I'm gonna say is: Down with rain and flat tires. Up with cupcakes!)
I recently asked Tera if she could hang out with a Greek god, who would she choose? Here's what she said:
"If I could hang out with a it would be Athena because she is the whole package. She's a jock with a brain, combining wisdom and competitive athletic ability with a patronage of the arts and industry. If she were a character in one of my books, she'd be the , captain of the soccer team, and a blue ribbon-winning artist. What college wouldn't recruit her? As long as she wasn't too much of a know-it-all I think she'd be great fun to be around." - Tera Lynn Childs
I'd like to hang out with Athena, too. Although Apollo's beautiful, and Ares is the ultimate bad boy so hanging with him could be exciting as well. (Kimber thinking...) One thing I can say is that I'd hang with any of the Greek gods (yes, even Hades) if I knew Tera was going to be there because we always have hilarious adventures together.

Kelly McCullough and I are the best of cyberbuddies. We met in the comments of a our wonderful friend Nancy Pickard's blog, and Kelly and I sparked a friendship. Once we were each sprinting toward the finish of our respective novels and after we finished, we cyber-celebrated with Nancy & our other friends at her place. (Such good times!)
Of course, any friendship doe have its limits. When Kelly tried to rise up against the cats who own him, I was forced to be the cat's representative. Of course, it wasn't my fault that I had to side with the United Feline Overlords (a.k.a. UFO) because as most cat owners know, the UFO collective is secretly in charge of the world. Anyway, Kelly's books are great. Hercules meets Hackers, I say. When I asked him what song he'd be from the 80s or 90s, he said...
"If I were a song from the 80s or 90s, I would be Nowhere Fast by Fire Inc. from the Streets of Fire soundtrack because it's exactly the right mix of blazingly fast, unrepentantly silly, and deadly serious. Oh, and it really rocks." ~ Kelly McCullough
Kelly definitely rocks, too!
