1. Do you have a secret talent?
Hmm… I don’t know if this counts as a talent, but I’m good with voice recognition. Even if I’ve only spoken with someone once, I can usually recognize him or her on the phone. Then again, I thought my cat was my daughter calling out for me the other day, so maybe I’m not so great at it after all.
2. Is there a song that really reminds you of your book?
I know some authors have playlists or theme songs for their books, but I’ve only had two instances when I’ve associated a song with one of my books. I think this is a fun question, however, so I started thinking about what song would fit and “I’m Sexy and I Know it” popped into my head. It’s the perfect theme song for Sebastian, because he is sexy and he knows it, but he is also playful and not afraid to look silly if it means entertaining others.
3. What was the easiest thing about writing this book?
I think it was typing “the end”. I loved the characters from the start. I love the story. I knew what needed to happen to resolve the tension and worry created for Sebastian in the previous book, but this was a hard book to write. I really can’t put my finger on why this one was a struggle, but I’m so pleased with the overall result.
4. Is there a word you love to use?
Asinine. It seems appropriate for a lot of situations.
5. Any real or imaginary pets?
We have a coonhound mix named Dani that we adopted nine years ago, and a 12-year-old calico cat named Mattie. Of course, they get different names when we take a trip to the vet. We have the Nervous Drooler and Kitty Crabbypants.
Thanks so much for having me here today. This was a lot of fun. I look forward to chatting with everyone. I love these questions and wondered if I could ask readers what their secret talent is. (WARNING: It will no longer be a secret after today.)
