A hilarious interview with the one and only Scott Tracey!

OH are you in for a treat today dear readers! The amazing, stupendous (and in my opinion hilariously funny) Scott Tracey is here today!

I challenged him to answer a set of increasingly ridiculous questions, inspired by those terrible and/or questions you find on forms. We at The {Teen} Book Scene call this a "Situational Interview".

Scott definitely not only answered the questions, he delivered laugh-out-loud inducing answers. So enjoy. Don't drink anything while you read this. I can't be held responsible if you choke. It's for your own safety, really.

1) Have you ever driven over 80 miles an hour in a car, or time traveled into the future in a car?

There was that one time I was on a bus that couldn't go slower than 80 miles per hour, but this guy came on and was all like "Whoa" and we were all like "whoa" and then the bus was like whoa.

2) Do you eat meat, or have you ever committed cannibalism?

That's between me and my court appointed therapist.

3) Are you a fan of working out, and/or do you bench press small children?

I treat sarcasm as a muscle all on its own, and just like any other muscle, it needs conditioning. Mild insults during the week, and then strenuous mocking on the weekends. I file it on once a week to keep it razor sharp.

4) Do you ever go to the zoo, or find yourself staring hungrily at the zebras?

I like to encounter the zebras in their natural habitat. That's why I get someone to spray paint me black and white, and then I try to sneak up on them.

5) Have you ever eaten a lot of candy, or ended up becoming Willy Wonka?

Actually, Scott Tracey is my pen name. My birth name was Willy Wonka, but I obviously had to change it, because I'm diabetic.

6) Have you ever flown, and/or are you Superman? 

I'm Batman.

7) Are you afraid of the dark, or do you glow in the dark?

I actually glitter in the dark. I'm like a disco ball of supernatural mystique.

8) Do you write vivid characters, and/or have your characters ever come to life and started a random dance party?

I don't think my characters are excessively vivid. Sometimes I will only answer to their names, and I act out the things that they would be doing. Which is all well and good, until I start working on the shapeshifter scenes, and I start humping the furniture.

9) Are you a writer, dancer, chef, or goblin?

I'm a 3rd level Arch-goblin in the Goblin Liberation Army. My callsign is Bawk-bawk.

10) Does this interview make you want to laugh, and/or break out in song complete with choreographed moves? 

I'm actually in the process of choreographing the new Justin Bieber world tour, which is a mashup with Twilight. They're calling it Bieblight.

Thanks Scott for playing along so fabulously!
Also for the record, I'd absolutely want to see a sparkly author who also happened to be in a version of Bieblight. How could it get any better?

If you love Scott Tracey as much as we at TBS do, go add his book to your Goodreads!

Braden was born with witch eyes: the ability to see the world as it truly is: a blinding explosion of memories, darkness, and magic. The power enables Braden to see through spells and lies, but at the cost of horrible pain.

After a terrifying vision reveals imminent danger for the uncle who raised and instructed him, Braden retreats to Belle Dam, an old city divided by two feuding witch dynasties. As rival family heads Catherine Lansing and Jason Thorpe desperately try to use Braden's powers to unlock Belle Dam's secrets, Braden vows never to become their sacrificial pawn. But everything changes when Braden learns that Jason is his father--and Trey, the enigmatic guy he's falling for, is Catherine's son.

To stop an insidious dark magic from consuming the town, Braden must master his gift—and risk losing the one he loves.
