JANE LYNCH: A favourite book featuring a character on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum
That would have to be lesbian and Detective Betty Rhyzyk from The Dime, by Kathleen Kent. Funny, smart, and as tough as nails.
LADY JANE GREY: A short book that packed a punch
I guess I would have to go with Animal Farm by George Orwell, which I was forced to read at school but, even to this day, still resonates with me.
JANE AUSTEN: Favourite heroine in a classic novel
Like so many before me, I’m choosing Jane Eyre, as she was one of my early heroes before I discovered science fiction!
JANE EYRE: You favourite retelling
This has got to be by author, Jim C. Hines and his retelling of the “Princess” fairytales. Start with The Stepsister Scheme, brilliant!
CALAMITY JANE: Your most anticipated release
I don’t really anticipate a books release, but I am looking forward to the follow-up of The Dime, from Kathleen Kent; featuring the tough Detective, Betty Rhyzyk.
JANE FONDA: A character who upholds feminist ideals
Dang, but this one is difficult. The only character who pops into my mind is Hermione from the Harry Potter series, who stood up for herself, and others, and showed great fortitude and courage. I don’t know about feminist, but there you go.
JANE KRAKOWSKI: An underrated book you wish more people would read
I would choose, The Missing Informant, by Anders de la Motte, a Swedish author I’m sure many people have never heard of. But this book, and the follow-up, were outstanding!
THE LADY JANIES: Two or more authors you wish would write a book together
At the moment, the two authors who I could see coming up with something outstanding are, J. K. Rowling and Karen Brooks. Two very imaginative women who, if they were to collaborate, I’m sure, would come up with a unique world populated with kick ass characters!
