In this Urban Fantasy Land exclusive, we’re bringing you the holiday traditions of some of your favourite urban fantasy authors! Today’s guest:
Michelle Rowen, author of the Immortality Bites series.
What winter holiday do you celebrate?
What are your favourite winter holiday traditions?
I visit with my family and we normally watch A Christmas Story on Christmas Eve. Plus, we do Christmas Crackers so during Christmas dinner we all have goofy paper hats on. I usually take lots of pictures to be used as blackmail at later dates.
What are you looking forward to most?
Spending time with family. And my stocking. Which, at my age, I still get. Thank you, Santa!
What’s your favourite gift to give?
This year it’s been books. Almost everyone on my list is going to receive a book from me — suited to their tastes, of course.
What’s your favourite gift to receive?
A gift card for Chapters, the big book store chain in Canada. I’m holding off getting some books since I want to see if I’m going to get some gift cards first. Then…shopping spree!!
What’s your favourite holiday food/candy/treat?
It’s Christmas tradition in my family to have Tourtiere, which is a French Canadian meat pie. Also, I’m a big fan of turkey and cranberry sauce.
