Do you have any ideas?

Egmont USA contacted me to do an interview of the authors of Middleworld (you can see my review here) by Jon and Pamela Voelkel. And since you guys are the ones who are going to be the one's reading the interview-I wanted to know if anyone had any ideas of what questions I should ask.

But to know what you would like to ask-here's more information about their book, Middleworld:

Middleworld by Jon and Pamela Voelkel
Publication Date: April 27, 2010
Versions: hardcover, paperback, kindle, audio

Summary (from
In the ancient city of Itzamna, Lord Six-Rabbit wakes up screaming. A great warrior king of the mighty Maya, he has dreamed he was a lowly, flea-bitten monkey. How could this be? Was this some sorcery sent by his half-brother, Tzelok, the evil priest?

1200 years later, in Boston, Massachusetts, a 14-old Max Murphy is looking forward to a family vacation. But his parents, both archaelogosts and Maya experts, announce a change in plan. They must leave immediately for a dig in San Xavier, the tiny Central American country where his father grew up. Max will go to summer camp. Max is furious. He's always suspected that his parents cared more about the Ancient Maya than about him and this proves it. When he's mysteriously summoned to San Xavier, he thinks they've had a change of heart. But he's met at the airport by one of their colleagues, who explains that his parents have gone missing at the remote Maya temple of Ix Chel. He also tells Max the legend of The Jaguar Stones, the five sacred stones of Middleworld (the Maya name for the world of men) which enabled Ancient Maya kings to wield the powers of living gods.

And so begins Max Murphy's wild adventure in the tropical rain forests of San Xavier. During his journey, he will unlock ancient secrets and meet strangers who are connected to him in ways he could never have imagined. For fate has delivered a challenge of epic proportions to this papered teenager. Can Max rescue his parents from the Maya Underworld and save the world from the Lords of Death, who now control the power of the Jaguar Stones in their villainous hands? The scene is set for a rollar-coaster ride of suspense and terror, as the good guys and the bad guys face off against a background of haunted temples, zombie armies and human sacrifice.

Now a little about the authors:
Over the last four years, authors Jon and Pamela Voelkel visited over twenty Maya sites across Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico. They’ve canoed underground rivers, tracked howler monkeys in the jungle, and met with leading Maya archaeologists—all in order to provide a rip-roaring adventure for children and an accurate portrayal of an incredible civilization.

So what do you think I should ask them? Just leave a comment and tell me-thanks so much

I always like to know what authors really think of their covers. I know most don't get to choose it themselves.

how about... if they can meet one of their characters in person, who would it be and why?

I find it so amazing how two people can work together and write one book, so maybe you could ask them how they go about doing that?
