Truth or Dare with Jessica Khoury, Author of Origin

It is my turn at last! This week I wandered through the streets seeking a human willing to participate in a dare I designed. It's truly fabulous, if I may say so. And the willing human I found is equally as fabulous. She goes by the name of Jessica Khoury.

Jessica Khoury is of Syrian and Scottish descent, and was born and raised in Toccoa, Georgia. She earned her bachelor’s degree in English from Toccoa Falls College. Origin is her first novel. She still lives in Toccoa with her husband Ben, where she writes and coaches youth soccer.

Why should you love Jess? This female has gorgeous red hair and a dashing smile. Her book ORIGIN is about a girl who could be a superhero if she wanted, as she was designed by scientists to be perfect and immortal. Reading this book made me wish we had more jungles on Asgard.

Jessica also has a book coming out in January called VITRO, a companion novel set on an island where scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. In fact, the book cover of VITRO was just revealed this past week. I have a feeling I'll end up living on an island for awhile after I read this book:

Intriguing, yes?

Now onto the main event...I gave Jessica the option of a Truth or a Dare. She is a very brave human indeed, as she picked the Dare.

I'm not like Loki, so I picked something fun for Jessica to do: Perform a Disney Song on video.

Watch her video below.

She makes a much more adorable villain than my brother, don't you think?


  1. HAHAHA! After watching that, I am sooo annoyed that my library doesn't have Origin! I desperately want to read it. If the premise wasn't good enough, the author is a super Disney singer. I'm sold.

  2. This is the point when I confess that I've never seen the Lion King, isn't it?

  3. HAHAHA I love it! I really enjoyed Origin and I am looking forward to Vitro.

  4. HAHAHAHA! That was AWESOME! And Mime, Origin is a gorgeous book. :D

  5. It all looks very interesting! Greetings from Poland.
