Dishin' It Up With David Brown, co-author of Bleaklisted Cats @felinecentral

David Brown

eBooks or Print?
Print - although I've embraced the eBook revolution you can't beat a physical paperback

Sweet or Salty?

Unicorns or Dragons?
It's got to be dragons

Egyptian Mythology or Celtic Mythology?
Egyptian mythology - I remember studying it at primary school and it was fascinating. I went to Egypt in 1993 and it was amazing.

Hot or Iced coffee?
Neither - sorry! I've always been a tea drinker, never coffee.

Sun or Moon?

Hermione Granger or Ron Weasley?
Ron. Ron needs more cheerleaders.

Roses or Tulips?
Roses, especially the chocolate variety

Chips or crackers?
Crackers. And cheese. Lots and lots of cheese.

Summer or Winter?
Summer, though winter is very beautiful

Super Power: Self-healer or Super Strength?
Self-healer, then I could worry less about being clumsy

Facebook or Twitter?

Doing things right or doing the right thing?
Doing the right thing

Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Never trying. If you try you've already won most of the battle.

Butter or Cream Cheese on your Bagel?
Cream cheese but hold the bagel

Night dreamer or Day dreamer?
Day dreamer, especially when I'm out running

Chocolate chip or Sugar cookies?
Chocolate chip, especially if it's white chocolate

Which is more intriguing, the past or the future?
The past. I have a huge passion for history and never tire of learning about our predecessors. It's fascinating how past actions shape the world so much.

David Brown could be considered a fantasy fanatic, especially since he has spent the last 10 years developing a 47,000-year history for his fictional world of Elenchera. Although David is inspired primarily by fantasy fiction, he also finds his muse in the form of anime, world cinema, history, and biographies. His own books combine aspects from worlds both old and new into compelling tales of a world not soon forgotten.

Donna is a longtime book lover and sometime book reviewer and has devoured books from an early age. She writes short (or long) stories as and when inspiration hits and is married to fantasy author David M. Brown. She was also co-contributor to David's book, Man vs Cat, a humorous look at life with six rambunctious rescue cats.

Publication Date: November 28, 2014
Genre: Non-Fiction Humor/Cats

The Bleaklisted Books:

Many moons ago a despotic cat named Charlie decided that he wanted to be a book critic. It would fit so nicely with his existing roles as food critic, dog critic and owner critic. Thus The Bleaklisted Books were born and Charlie has never looked back.

This first volume of The Bleaklisted Books sees Charlie review (pull to pieces) an array of literary masterpieces, including Ulysses, Charlotte's Web and Anna Karenina. Book lovers - and even cat lovers - beware! This could be the stuff of nightmares...

Man vs Cat:

History has known many famous cats - Garfield, Mr Bigglesworth, Simon's Cat, the Aristocats, the Cheshire cat and the Keyboard Cat on YouTube.

In recent years these feline things have replaced man's best friend as the most popular pet in the U.S. while the Ancient Egyptians once worshipped them as gods. This was a mistake and I'm here to tell you why.

Man vs Cat is the story of one man, one woman and the six cats that changed their lives forever. To the woman they brought love and affection, to the man they brought sleepless nights, fear, paranoia and even ruined his jigsaw. Need I say more?

Charlie's vision of a reworked Bridget Jones' Diary: "Jane owns a dairy farm and she’s a bit frigid because of a disastrous date with Farmer Pogo who tends his crops on a pogo stick and even sleeps on it and goes to the toilet on it, which causes all kinds of complications. Across a year, Jane meets numerous suitors including Three-legged Jenkins, Boomerang Bumpy Buttocks, Sexy Mitch, Eric the Woozy Boozy Floozy and Dimple Dumple Pumple Crappy Domple. After numerous awful dates, a close shave with a demonic tractor and a regrettable incident with a frying pan and a cow, Jane marries a businessman named Sandra and lives happily ever after."
