Clicking Our Heels

Some of the members of The Stiletto Gang are having a dinner party.  Each can invite three guests to join them for dinner.  Who would they be and why?

Linda Rodriguez: Virginia Woolf, Charles Dickens, and Octavia Butler. Woolf for her bright, often viscous wit. Dickens for his flood of storytelling. Butler for her thinking about humanity and issues of race, class, sustainability, and creativity.

Paffi Flood: Eleanor Roosevelt, Marie Curie, and Julia Child.

Marilyn Meredith: For those who are alive, I'm going to name some people you probably don't know - Victoria Heckman, Sue McGinty, Karen Kavanaugh - all mystery writers I've shared meals with and I know the conversation would be wonderful. These three are members of the Central Coast Sisters in Crime- and really there are others who would be great to share a dinner with.

Sparkle Abbey: ?

Dru Ann Love: George Washington because he's the father our country and I would like to know what was going through his head at that time, and does he like what he sees of this country now. Martin Luther King, Jr. because he's the leader of the civil rights movement and I would like to know what was going through his head at the time, and does he like what he sees of this country now. Barbra Streisand because she's Barbra Streisand.

Juliana Aragon Fatula: Shakespeare, Sherman Alexie, Sandra Cisneros.  They are the three writers who have influenced my style, oh and Tom Robbins, but his name doesn't begin with an S, so he's disqualified.

Kay Kendall: William Shakespeare, Madame Curie and Abraham Lincoln.

Jennae M. Phillippe:  Oooh! so many possibilities! I think a fantastic dinner party would be John Oliver of Last Week Tonight, Amanda Palmer, author of The Art of Askng, andHaley Atwell, of TV show Agent Carter. I understand that I have two Brits and someone married to a Brit on this list, but I am standing by it.

Bethany Maines: Alive or dead? Alive I would probably go with Nathan Fillion (Castle), Pink, and Gina Davis, I think that would be a hilarious dinner party. Dead: I think I'd have to pick Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut, Shakespeare (just so I could prove he wrote everything), and Agatha Christie.


  1. What a dinner party! I think Isaac Asimov would be interesting, and Judith Merril, whom I recently re-discovered. I used to love reading her "Survival Ship" with my students. I'd also love to include Jackie Torrence, storyteller, teacher to so many. It would be such fun to have this group together. <3

    1. Storyteller Mary, between those who posted on facebook and on the blogspot, you randomly won the prize. Send me your mailing address offline at and it will be forthcoming (and no, I won't be cooking). Debra

  2. Thanks for stopping by. You definitely would add an interesting group to the dinner party.
