Q&A with Queen Ashley

For their book "Influences" Queen Ashley and The Other One took the "An Album to Record Thoughts, Feelings, etc." questionnaire popularized by French writer Marcel Proust. As a whole Queen's answers aren't really suprising (reflective and business minded). And I definetly have to agree with her choice for favorite heroine in literature: Estella from Great Expectations. I relate more to that character than any other in the history of fiction. Anyway, here are Queen Ashley's questions and answers. If you'd like to read The Other One's responses, click here
