Nerdy Notes: An Interview with ‘Lil Paige



My daughter has invaded my blog once again this time in the form of an interview. For those of you who don’t know ‘Lil Paige wrote a piece of flash fiction for the new Kristell Ink Anthology “Felinity” out in fine bookstores now.

Here’s a short blurb about Felinity: Grimbold Books is proud to present our first Kristell Inkling, a collection of feline inspired flash fiction stories written by authors from all around the world. 

This collection celebrates what we regard as the most important factor when writing: write foremost for pleasure. The stories showcased in this book are full of laughter, grit, odd contraptions and a lot of fur, with a loud purring nod to our beloved genres of science fiction and fantasy. 

From A.F.E Smith’s unique twist on Schrödinger’s cat, to Joel Cornah’s world-jumping old queen, from Clare Neilson’s steampunk creation to Tina Closser’s dragon fighting dreaming kitty, these alternate feline worlds are bound to delight sci fi/fantasy readers and cat lovers alike.

SO …. Take it away Paige


Your story was a short piece entitled “Diamond of the Earth” about two cats who are fighting over the survival of Earth. What was your inspiration for the story?

My two cats Tigger and Chief

Why did your cats inspire the story?

I think this is what my cats must be doing when we’re away from home, because when we get home they are always so tired.

What are some of your favorite books?

Percy Jackson Series – Rick Riordian, Divergent – Veronica Roth, Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer,  Firedragon – Mary Fan

What do you like doing other than reading and writing?

I like to play with my brother outside at our farm, watch Percy Jackson movies, drawing, and playing chess and checkers on my Kindle

Any other stories in the works?

Not currently, but school is almost out so I’m sure I’ll have some time on my hands.


Okay Paige now it’s time for the Nerdy Lightening Round. Don’t think too much just answer the first thing that comes to mind. Are you ready.

Whatever, Mom

Percy or Annabeth


Chocolate or Vanilla


Caramel or Buffalo Chicken Wings


Captain America or Thor

Black Widow


‘Lil Paige doesn’t have a Facebook page or Twitter account, because I’m one of those mean parents that hover like a hawk when their child is on the internet. However you can buy your very own copy of Felinity here:
