Pranking Pinkie Pie. :)

Daring Do: I have not. I began pursuing writing after I’d had a few adventures under my belt. It was wanting to share these stories with ponies that got me into the profession.

(You read my mind! :o)

 

"Were your books well-received from the beginning, or did you need to build up a word of mouth following first?"

Daring Do: I lucked out and got a really good publisher that knew how the advertise. A poster in a library here, a newspaper interview there... a couple months after the initial release and the books started flying off the shelves and demand for a sequel had already started building.

Daring Do: I think a lot of it is that I don’t really have a lot of my ego wrapped up in these books. I’m happy that so many ponies like them, but I’ve got more important things to worry about in my life. I mean, my livelihood doesn’t even depend on them doing well, what with the inheritance...

(I would have also accepted: "I bought a safari hat." :P)

 

So, you don't *need* to risk your life in dangerous areas but you do it for the adrenaline rush & the thrill of the hunt?

Right on. 

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment as an adventurer? Traveling to an exotic land, trying something new etc.?

(Spoilers for a real life Daring Do book. X3)

Daring Do: I've seen and done a lot. There are so many things I could pick. But the first one to pop into my mind is...

Spoiler

helping the Duchess Precipita of Cirrostrata reunite with fellow adventurer Brumby Cloverpatch. You can read about it in "Daring Do and the Forbidden City of Clouds". I'm not exactly know for being a romantic, but... I was pretty happy for them.

(I actually flipped though the book really quick to find out the spellings for names, and came across a line that I had forgotten about regarding a phobia Daring used to have. Fish! Specifically, piranhas. I forgot about it, but it's just as well because apparently, she got over it. XD)

Ahuizotl: Precisely. And at the very least, the children seem to like her.

That's good.

Ahuizotl,

How are things in the jungle so far?

Daring Do,

I know you don't write your books for the fame, but for sharing your adventures. So, what do you do with the bits you've earned from them? Just asking.

Ahuizotl: Quiet. Just the way I like it. Icon_Ahuizotl.png.6526e681a98e1e30999cebc81b2d3b28.png

Daring Do: Some of it goes into funding future expeditions, but most of it goes into charity. Like literacy programs and museums I work with. Icon_Daring_Do_Relieved.png.325c28c464bec2618853104e42107354.png

LOL NEVERMIND!!

Don’t know what I was thinking. I won’t be able to add icons while I’m in New York, but I’m gonna need to keep this open.

Pretending to be Daring, Ahui, and Dr. C keeps me sane (ironically).

WE’RE OPEN!

"If Daring Do is daring & Dr. Caballeron is cunning, what is Auhizotl?"

Ahuizotl: Audacious.
