What was your favorite book as a kid? Wait til Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn

If you were stranded on a desert island what is the one book you couldn't be stranded without? Gone with the Wind

What is your favorite genre to read and what makes it so awesome? Contemporary Literary Fiction- Cuz real life stories are the best.
Tell us your favorite author. Which book is your total fave from that author? I'd say it's a tie between Cassandra Clare The City of Glass and Alice Hoffman- The Third Angel

Any pet peeves you'd be willing to share? I hate it when people cut in line and don't say please. AND are clean freaks. Sorry, no one is THAT perfect.

If you could meet any dead person, who would you choose? Any particular reason why? Emily Dickenson. I want to know what she's like, what goes on in that head of hers.

If the Earth suddenly became uninhabital, would you rather live under the sea or in space? Under the sea.

What was your most favorite pasttime as a kid? Going to the Flea Markets with my dad or traveling around in our car with my family.

Take us through a typical writing day for you. Do you have anything quirky - like you have to have a certain pen to write with, or the desk laid out in a particular manner, does it need to be raining, do you require a certain food/drink/candy to work by? Will you have an absolute meltdown if the atmosphere isn't what you like? I need my laptop, lapdesk, coke, some sort of candy (starburst, sweettarts, kitkat, mambas) to munch on and lots of music. I don't have meltdowns while writing.

What do you do when you experience that lovely problem called writer's block? I read. I binge read. Like, lots.

When you were little, what did you think you'd be when you grew up? A writer, a nurse, and a dancer. I did all three.
What is the craziest dream you've ever had? I was in some weird line with my two oldest kids, though they were little at that time. We were being shuffled along some sort of line that sent us to our deaths. Yeah, I have morbid dreams.

If you could live anywhere in the world you'd like, where would that be and why? Italy, anywhere in the country because it's beautiful and not here.

Do you have a secret obsession you'd be willing to share? I am a book hoarder. Enough said.

What food/drink would absolutely devastate you if they stopped production on? Coke. The actual Coke. Yes, I'd be so withdrawing.

Did you do anything special to celebrate your first book release? No, I just jumped up and down and ran around like a freak. My kids were weirded out.

Which is your favorite fairytale? King Thrushbeard

Which book are you most looking forward to reading this year? The Clockwork Princess, though it might be coming out next year, not sure.

Which do you prefer: ebook, hardback or paperback? I prefer, at the moment, ebook, though I still love paperback/hardbacks.

This or That
Underworld or Twilight
Original or Remake - Not sure, depends.
Sweet or Salty
Drama or Comedy
Fantasy or Romance
Spring or Autumn
Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston
Dirty Dancing or Footloose
Movie Theatre or Loveseat
Tea or Coffee
Rain or Sunshine
Skiing or Surfing
Tree House or Man Cave

Choose a challenge...if you dare! Write a sentence using all these words: Katniss, duct tape, shard, bread, explosives, rooster: The duct tape stuck to the shard of explosives that had already gone off all over the place made Katniss trip over the rooster, sending her bread flying. You know...I think you're the first one to attempt that question! :D
