Where are you right now (LVR, DR, Bathroom) and what are you wearing? You have to tell the truth. I am in my home office, drinking a bottled Starbucks Mocha, a bag of dark chocolate M&Ms beside me, and I’m wearing coral-colored shorts, a black tank top and no shoes.
What is the funniest, strangest, or most interesting thing you have learned when doing research? That people look at you strangely when you talk about interesting ways to kill people. :o)
What is something that very few people know about you? Although I’ve been on TV twice, once in a documentary about pickles and once in front of a waterfall as the backdrop for the local news, I am very shy.
What is your favorite material item that you own (examples: ipod, Gone with the Wind book, grandmother’s rocking chair) My Kindle Fire. My precious.
If you could live in any time period other than the one we live in, past or future, when and where would that be and why? I’ve always been fascinated by the prairies days. I know the work would be harder than I would like, but the simplicity of the life has always appealed to me.
If you were writing a book about your life what would the title be? Can’t Say Sane With A Straight Face.
What one novel did you read that made you want to be a part of the story? Gone With the Wind
What is the biggest secret you ever kept (of course it can’t be a secret anymore)? I kill people for a living. :o)
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done? Parasail a second time after the first time scared me spitless. Somehow, I thought doing it again a few years later would have different results.
