It’s been a while since I’ve been tagged, so I was pretty happy to be tagged by Alexa. I’ve also got a new blog theme, and I decided to do a blog post every other week instead of every week. That way, I can work on polishing my posts.

#1 If you could go back in time to any time, what time would it be?
Depends. Could I change the past or not? If I could change it, I’d go back to the Garden of Eden and tell Eve that you shouldn’t listen to talking snakes.
If I couldn’t change time, I’d probably go back to some pre-Flood time and see what the world was like. (I want to see dinosaurs.)

#2 What are your favorite hobbies (besides writing)?
I like drawing. I also have chickens that I take care of. I’d mention ranch stuff, but that’s not a hobby since it’s my family’s main source of income.

#3 What’s your favorite character you’ve ever written?
This is a hard one. There are so many I like. Klate’s cool, but maybe my favorite is Rolf. He’s interesting because he’s got few personality flaws. Razor is another cool one of mine, but I don’t know if I’ll ever finish the book he’s in. My favorite in The Red Tattoo is probably Ashin. She’s pretty spunky.

#4 Favorite character you’ve ever read?
Favorites are annoying. Don’t ask me to choose. One of my favorites would be Ty from Dark Life. He’s a pioneer type character and I related really well to him because, like him, I prefer wide open spaces to city life. Of course, he’s in a very different environment. There’s also Tool from The Drowned Cities. I just tend to like big tough mutant super soldier furry things.
Another cool pair are Cinder and Cress from the Lunar Chronicles. Cress is one of the few damsels in distress that I actually didn’t get annoyed with.

#5 Favorite outfit?
Lando Calrissian got a pretty snappy outfit. Wait, did you mean my outfit? I just throw on whatever isn’t too dirty.

#6 What do you do to relax?
Surf the web.

#7 How many siblings do you have?
Two younger brothers.

#8 Can you think of a single best day of your life?
Not really.

#9 Do you have an all-time favorite quote/motto?
“Only he is lost who gives himself up for lost.”
Immortal ain’t bulletproof. ~ John Carter

#10 What are your three favorite movies?
Star Wars, the original trilogy. Lord of the Rings is good too. There are a few others I should rewatch to see if I still like them.

#11 What do you think is the prettiest animal in the universe? (note: I did not say your favorite. I said the prettiest.)
Peacock? If we’re going by the entire universe though, there might be alien animals that are really pretty.


About Jessi L. Roberts

I live and work on my family’s cattle ranch in eastern Montana. I have a flock of chickens, a hyper golden retriever, some cows, and a few horses. I enjoy fantasy and science fiction and my head is full of wild sci-fi story ideas, some involving apocalypses and others involving aliens. I have been published twice in Havok Magazine, an imprint of Splickity.

  1. Oh, cool, you did the tag! 😀

    Haha, yeah, somebody probably should’ve mentioned that to her. :p

    Nice drawing! Do you use a computer program?

    I’ve read Dark Life and Lunar Chronicles! If I remember correctly, I liked Ty a lot, even though he occasionally made decisions that I thought were kind of unwise, and Cress and Cinder are pretty cool too. And yeah, even though she was kind of a damsel in distress, she wasn’t annoying. She was strong in her own way, even though she wasn’t good at the traditional “strong female character” stuff.

    I ADORE STAR WARS. And that quote is one of my favs ❤

    Nice new theme! It came at the perfect time, too, because I’m writing a spacey Camp novel. xP Inspiration?

    The drawing is very good. 🙂


    • Thanks! What’s your story about?

      I’m glad you like it. I like how the colors came out.


      • FaithSong says:

        Welks. xP Hummm… I don’t have an official onee-sentence pitch or anything, but… Basically, it’s about an immortal girl (meaning, any time she’s hurt, she heals instantly) who is an assasin to the leader of a coelition of tribes. Unknown to him, however, she has been smuggling her victims out of the Capitol, with the help of “her Seven:” a group of seven people from the various tribes who help her rescue and smuggle her targets past the border.
        But it’s a little more difficult when the leader wants her to kill his daughter, make it look like an assassination, and have produce proof.

        I do, too. The colors fit together well. Sometimes I wish I could draw weird alien creatures. xP

        Arg. I’m on mobile.

  3. Seeing dinosaurs -and the early early earth in general- would be amazing. (I’d love to time travel, but I could not be trusted with such a thing, unless strictly in observer mode).
    Great answer to number #5!

    • I think time travel would have to be observation mode, or some mode that didn’t disrupt history much. There would just be too many temptations. (I’d so bring home a dinosaur, or five, if I could.)
