Trifling With Trivia: Authors & Books

Saturday, September 11, 2010

I'm in a trivia mood. I usually post questions on Facebook after playing trivia at Duffy's on Wednesday nights.  However, after a great and relaxing chapter meeting and lunch with fellow writers, I thought a few author-book questions would top off a perfect day.  I'll post the answers on Thursday night. :) Carol

1) What American novel was the first to sell over one million copies?

2) What words did Lewis Carroll combine to come up with the term "chortle" in Through a Looking-Glass?

3) What was the title of Mac West's 1959 autobiography?

4) What popular children's book was written by Ian Fleming, creator of British secret agent James Bond?

5) By what pseudonym is writer Frederick Dannay Manfred Bennington Lee better known?
6) Where did mystery writer Agatha Christie acquire her extensive knowledge of poisons?
7) J. R. Ward writes contemporary romance under what pseudonym?
8) Who said a historical romance is the only kind of book where chastity really counts?
