- Favorite time of day/place to write: Late afternoon, in her bed, with a dog or two snuggled up next to her.
- Book currently reading/most recently read: TWIST by Karen Akins – SO GOOD!
- Favorite things to do (other than reading): Procrastinating, going to concerts, plotting world domination. Wait–uh, watching TV. Yeah.
