1.  Bixby, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

My fashion style-I have my own Pinterest board detailing the types of things I wear. http://www.pinterest.com/donitakpaul/bixby-styling/  I love layers in clothing and tiaras for everyday wear.

2.  What do you do for fun?

Crafts! I can make most anything without tools of any kind, like knitting with out needles or crocheting with out a hook. I do live in a fantasy world, so this is not as unusual as you might think. I also love shopping. Markets are treasure-troves of material for my crafts.

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Writing letters! I love getting letters, but it is such a chore to write one. Plus my best friend, Cantor D’Ahma, has a phobia about writing implements so when I take out a pen, he gets weird.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

Failure. I know, it’s absurd. But when you are born in a palace with a savant’s ability to do incredible things, you don’t encounter failure very often. Hardships build character, and I’m afraid I’m a bit shallow. My saving grace is my relationship with Primen (you call him God). He has gifted me and prepared my road. I want to do all He ordained for me in a way that points others to His Majesty.

5.  What do you want out of life?

I think I just answered that. But to answer in a more feat on the ground manner (feat is spelled that way on purpose), I want to be happy and for the people around me to be happy.  That’s not as shallow as it sounds on the surface. It’s really a deep desire. Think about it. What would your life be like if you and everyone around you were content and joyful? Your God, the one and only true God, has prepared a place for you that has no sorrow. Look it up and get your ticket. Jesus has plenty on hand.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

This could get monotonous, because my first reaction is Primen! But number two would be my friendships. Because I am a princess and a savant, my upbringing was lonely. Lots of tutors, not much fun. Now that I am out on my own and a “sort of” realm walker, my fellow questors are my family.

7.  Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

I read romance novels. Sweet romances, not steamy.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Just one thing? Well, I have almost white blonde hair that springs from my head in quirky, tight curls. That’s a bit annoying. Or, and I hate to say this because so many women have the opposite problem, but I am too skinny. Not svelte, but skin and bones. I would like to bulk up a bit so I don’t slip through cracks. That’s really why I wear layers of clothes. Besides liking the style, I look more substantial than I am.

9.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

I don’t have a pet. My friend Bridger, the shape-shifting dragon, has a pet cat, Jesha. He lets me play with her. My author has a house rabbit, and that would be fun, but I don’t have a house.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I would travel back to my youth and be naughtier. Not really bad things, but things like sneaking out to go sledding or eating a second piece of pie when no one’s looking.
