Chrissy Peebles & The Purple Brick Road

The Purple Brick Road is a visually dynamic blog run by Chrissy Peebles, which features not only her own writing but also author interviews and book reviews.  The blog is full of fun facts, great reviews and recommendations, and highlights the genre that Chrissy loves most.

I recently did an e-mail interview with Chrissy and for this first part of the Blog Feature I’d like to share with you a brief snippet from that conversation.

Hi! Thanks so much for talking with me.  So just so that we’re all introduced to one another, could you tell us your name, or your penname if you use one?
Thanks so much for having me today on your lovely blog. My name is Chrissy Peebles. Speaking of pennames, I should probably come up with some long exotic penname. Because anything has to be better than “Peebles”? Right? Hee, hee, hee.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with Peebles it’s who you are.  But now that we’ve got that out of the way though, let’s get onto some more questions.

What do you do in ‘real life’?
I stand tall and proud wearing white tennis shoes and scrubs with my stethoscope strategically draped behind my neck. Yep! You guessed it. I work as a nurse for a local rehabilitation center. Being a nurse is awesome because I love people so much.

How did you come up with and/or decide on the title for your blog?
I love fantasy so I knew that I wanted a fantasy theme. I thought of The Yellow Brick Road, but I wanted to be more unique than that. So I made it The Purple Brick Road. Because in fantasy you can do whatever you want. I’ve tried something new on my blog, which is really taking off. I started up “FUN” interviews. Authors are asked a series of questions they pick that show the fun, creative side of the author. I incorporate it with lots of pics. When it’s done, it showcases a “FUN” side of the author.   

Who are the authors that you like to read best?
There’s so many that it’s hard to put down a few actual authors. It’s like choosing between my children. How can I? 

What is your favorite novel? Or novels?
It’s hard to narrow it down, but I’ll try. Here are a few. Touched By An Alien by Gini Koch, Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton, and The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong.

What are your favorite movies?
Jurassic Park, The Neverending Story, and Star Wars.

So there you have your brief introduction to Chrissy and her blog The Purple Brick Road.  As I mentioned before, Chrissy can also be found on Twitter and Facebook.  I think you’ll find that she’s always got something on the go - from ‘FUN’ interviews and blog tours, to book reviews and promotion of other Independent Authors.  Of course she also shares information about her own writing and books as well.  Honestly her blog is just a really interesting spot to land while cruising through blogs, and the content is always ‘FUN’ to read!
