For my very first blog post on my sparkly new blog, I have decided to interview myself to introduce myself to the world. (I do not usually talk to myself like this and, contrary to popular belief, I am not insane. This just seemed a fun format today.)


If you could pick one of your characters to take to lunch at your favorite restaurant, who would it be and where would you go?

I’d have to take Karile to Mighty Fine Burgers (I’m a Texas girl, I have a thing for beef). He’s funny, takes everything in stride, would probably love MFB, and so long as I kept my eyes on him, I think we’d have a rollicking good time.


You have five minutes with Doctor Who’s TARDIS. What do you do?

Make sure the Emperor of the Daleks isn’t around, dash off to the future, download every scrap about the next twenty years’ stock exchange, and zip back here in time to play the market. That would be so cool…


If you had to fight one of your characters in the Thunder Dome, who would you pick?

I think Bricen. I know I could take her and I wouldn’t mind bumping her off because I know how nasty she is.


Who is your favorite author?

Well, Madeleine L’Engle wrote my favorite book of all time, so I guess she gets the credit for that title. Though I have lately discovered Sarah J. Maas and several indie author such as JD Field and Intisar Khanani.


Indie or Traditional?

Even though I have a publisher, I have to say I’m hardly ever a fan of tradition. I believe that self-pubbed books can be just as good, if not better than, traditional books. So long as they have the right editing. 😉


What is your favorite TV show?

Well, Legend of the Seeker got cancelled, so did Monk, and that leaves Grimm and Doctor Who. Doctor Who is awesome, that goes without saying, but I’m kind of partial to Monroe. Hence, I’m going to say that Grimm is my favorite TV show.


How often do you write?

Six days a week on average. During the summer and holidays, I spend most of my time cooped up inside with my fingers whirring over the keyboard. Even when I’m not before my computer, I’m usually thinking about my books. (Among others, I have this sometimes annoying habit of acting out dialogue as I walk my dogs.)

So that’s me. =)
