Describe yourself in one sentence?
While wearing the romance writer hat, it's got to be "I'm a writer of fun romance stories."
What are the one record, book, and food, you'd take to a desert island?
Hmmm. Desert meaning no water? I guess I probably won't want to stay there long then. Therefore I'd like a James Bond tricksy kind of record that can transform into a perpetually fueled jet pack allowing me to fly away, please. I'm not sure I'd have time to read a book before getting dehydrated, so I'd rather explore the beach for an hour or so before getting thirsty and jetting away. Food = It'd just make me thirstier, so none thanks. I'm really thirsty now.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Wealthy! With a dragon hoard of gold and silver coins, jewel-hilted daggers, strings of pearls dripping out of precious goblets and firey opals the size of my fist.
Which book do you wish you'd written?
Getting Rid of Bradley by Jenny Crusie
What makes you happy?
At this moment, hot mint tea while watching the rain outside.
What makes you angry?
Disloyalty. Unfairness. My next-door neighbors.
Name five people how you'd like invite to a dinner party?
I'm not in a position to bring off a decent dinner party at the moment. Soon hopefully.
What's the scariest thing you've ever done?
What inspired you to start writing?
Where would you most like to live?
Somewhere the neighbors are either far away, or else kindly & quiet.
What is your favorite curse word?
All of them, but applied sparingly.
Who is you're favorite man candy?
My handsome husband. He's pretty sweet-looking all over but his forearms & hands are works of art.
Sum up your latest release in no more than twelve words!
Marionette operator versus hardass business tycoon: who will ultimately pull the strings?
What? I surprised you? Oh don't let me stop you, finish undressing!
Anyone out there? HELLO! This is what I want for Christmas. Not to mention New Years, Valentine's Day, My Birthday, Easter . . .. Shall ...
