Where do you dream of traveling to and why?
I dream of traveling to Australia and New Zealand. I have friends there now, and would love to meet them and hang out. I often wonder if we would know what to say to each other once we were together. Computers has been the only way we’ve ever communicated.
Do you believe in ghosts?
I do, and I believe they’re all around us. I think if we open ourselves up enough we can sense them. Used to be absolutely terrified by the notion, but now, after watching Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, I’m fine with it.
If you could spend the night anywhere, where would it be?
I would love to spend the night at a spa. Of course, then I’d need the staff there to provide every spa treatment imaginable. Can you tell I really need to unwind and get pampered?
What does your significant other and family think of your writing career?
My husband is so proud of me and all I’ve accomplished so far. He’s my biggest promoter! My daughters think it’s cool, but they’re on the younger side, preadolescent and teenager, and are a bit embarrassed by the subject matter. They have gotten used to looking at beautiful men, however!
What was one of the most surprising things you learned while writing your books?
I was most surprised by how quickly time flew by each day as I wrote this story. No sooner had the sun come up, then it was setting once more. I never realized how deeply engrossed one got when writing. I thought people were just exaggerating. Well, not anymore!
What are your favorite TV shows?
I adore Bones and Castle, and like Grey’s Anatomy. As far as reality TV, I love Hell’s Kitchen and So You Think You Can Dance.
What group did you hang out with in high school?
I identified with the NASA wannabe crowd, otherwise known as science geeks. I also identified with the drama crowd since I was student director for a few years. However, I really didn’t hang with any defined group. I had little pockets of friends.
What hobbies do you actively pursue?
I love photography and scrapbooking. Capturing moments, feelings, the essence of nature, all enthralls me.
Beatles or Monkees? Why?
This is a very tough question. I actually knew of the Monkees BEFORE the Beatles because I watched their TV show religiously. However, as the years went on, I developed a love for the Beatles and their music that still remains very strong to this day. George and Paul are my favorites.
