The eleven questions
I was given and my answers to them:
1. Early bird or night owl? I am definitely a night owl.
2. Who inspires you? (Anyone from history dead or alive) Anyone with the wits to reply with a
well-written lie while under fire from the pie in the sky… LOL! Alright, name
dropping: Edgar Allen Poe, Stephen King, JK Rowling, Bill Bryson, The Lorax (I
shall count this character because you can’t prove that there’s no such thing.
Ha ha.), Heath (Now I’m counting one of my own characters! Yeah well, you try
living with him in your head and then we’ll discuss acquiring an ability not to
count him for this question!), my mom (… and now I’ve thrown in a cliché…),
and about a dozen of my readers/fans/followers.
3. What is the best
book you’ve read in 2012 so far? The
Shining by Stephen King
4. How many hours do
you spend on your blog per week? That
depends on the week. Usually two or three.
5. Where do you wish to be in ten years? Earth. I don’t think the Mars colony will
have a decent coffee shop in ten years, so I’m pretty sure I’ll stay here.

7. Any profession in the world, what would it be? A choice.
8.Did you start your blog for you or for the readers? For my readers.

10. Bubbly or boring? In
my drink I prefer boring. In my cheerleader I prefer bubbly. Ha.
11. Your perfect mate would be? My spouse. I am tempted to select a certain character from my series,
but that person already has a mate and I wouldn’t stand a chance in that
