When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.
I need to have my coffee (my lifeblood). I need to have some sort of background sound like music or television but I’m learning I can’t write with certain things on like The Office. I will watch that instead.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
I love getting to see old friends and making new ones!
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Karen Marie Moning. I would totally fangirl her!
When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?
I am always on the go so I try to fit writing in when I have free time like on my lunch break or between matches at a wrestling tournament.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
It was probably my first acceptance letter from a publisher. I think I cried. My dream had just come true and I was overwhelmed.
Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?
My copy of The Princess Bride. I had checked the copy out of the library and read it a bunch of times. Our library was destroyed in the flood and the floor the book was on was completely under water. I was helping a friend box up books donated to her book store last summer and we found a copy of The Princess Bride. Knowing that story, she gave it to me. It has a special place on my bookshelf.
