Enjoy the post.


What’s your favorite snack?

York Peppermint Patties and coffee. Yum.


What is your most memorable high school experience?


Sadly, my most memorable high school experience is losing someone very close to me in a car accident. That tragic experience is a nightmare that always stays with me.


What was the first book that turned you into a reader?

I read tons of books throughout elementary and middle school because our county had an awesome kids reading program, but the book that got me addicted to magical love stories was Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. *dreamy sigh*


Are you a night owl or early bird?

I'm more of an early bird. Also, I can only write in the mornings. My creative mind is pretty useless at night.


What is your favorite meal?

Tough one because I love so many foods, but it USED to be the Tuna Oscar at the Polynesian resort at Disney. They recently took it off the menu and I am still grieving.


What do you never leave home without?

My Burt's Bees lip balm.


Do you have any pets?

Yes. Two awesome, adorable, and very spoiled dogs: Moby, a 12-year-old lab and border collie mix who is too smart for her own good, and Rooney, my rescued American Bulldog who is a cancer survivor. *fist pump*

What is one piece of advice you would give aspiring writers?

Write what you love and never give up. (Okay, that was two pieces of advice but I made it into one sentence, so it should be allowed.)


What are you goals for 2013?

Finish and publish my two sequels: Dangerous Depths and Taking Back Forever. Also, I'd like to win the lotto.
