Kristina Jones is a lifelong musician, singer and teacher of bel canto vocal technique. "Bel Canto" (Italian - translation "Beautiful Singing") works for any and all genres of vocal music. In addition to music, she has been practicing and teaching kundalini yoga meditation in the lineage of Rudi (Swami Rudrananda) under the tutelage of Stuart Perrin, internationally known teacher of meditation for the last 40 years. All this and she's been my voice teacher for years- so the gnomes know she likes coffee and tea and pianos and laughing and AHHHHHHHHHHHH! They would brew her whatever she was in the mood for that day.
J.D. Estrada is a multi-genre author! Sci-fi, fantasy, poetry, YA fiction, nonfiction… There is no limit on his story telling palette. The gnomes know he likes tea, as they have watched his Tea With J.D. series on Youtube. They would brew him a nice cup of oolong.
Jacopo della Quercia is the author of page-turning books I devour faster than chocolate. The gnomes enjoy his sharp wit, and suggest espresso. They figure it won't take long to drink, and then he might be wired enough to go off on a tangent about Machiavelli.
Out of respect for Assaph's interests the gnomes would serve well watered wine and fish sauce. No main course, mind you, just the sauce.
Eva Leigh has written so many of my personal favourite books! Seriously swooning over here. She has definitely talked about having tea in her books, so the gnomes are making her loose leaf as I type this. With cake, of course.
