I am super excited to be doing a signed book giveaway on my blog with my book! It’s so exciting! And since I’ve never done an interview on my blog with me, I thought I’d take my questions that I give my wonderful guests and let you learn a little bit about me! Be sure to read all the way through to learn how enter to win. Don't forget to leave your email address and let me know if you are a feedburner follower so I can give you an extra entry.
So here it goes.
Where are you right now (LVR, DR, Bathroom) and what are you wearing? You have to tell the truth.
I am sitting in the living room at Wild Dunes in my favorite city, Charleston, SC. I set 90% of my stories here in this wonderful city. I’m wearing a pair of jean capris and a hot pink shirt. Love bright, bold, and neon colors!
What is the funniest, strangest, or most interesting thing you have learned when doing research?
Hmmm this is hard! Maybe I should change this question for my guests! LOL. My memory isn’t that good. I think I may have to come back to this one. One thing I learned even though I don’t write in the time period is back in bible times there were some homes that actually had air conditioning! Not like we think of air conditioning, but some wealthy did have it. They used the aqua ducts and had water run down in between their walls to keep their homes cool. They were actually taxed by how much water they used. They also had toilets with running water. It is just amazing to me when we think of ourselves as so advanced.
What is something that very few people know about you?
This is hard because I was asked this on another blog that is coming up and I don’t want to use the same one. Maybe that I was a real tomboy growing up. I loved to play with frogs, turtles, and snakes. Yes, I did say snakes. I used to carry them around! Thank goodness at about 12 I outgrew being a tomboy and wanted to be a normal girl. LOL>
What is your favorite material item that you own (examples: ipod, Gone with the Wind book, grandmother’s rocking chair)
I am a terrible sentimental! So I could name several things. My wedding ring for one, but I’m going to take that one out of the running and do something more unique. I have an old cookie jar that has been in our family for a long time that I remember sticking my hand into as a child. But more than that I think my favorite thing would be my old bible collection. There is something about holding the word of God in my hands that three hundred years earlier someone read and held in their hands.
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?
Oh man, I’d like to pick two! And since this is my blog, I think I will! LOL! First, I was just saying yesterday as my daughter and I walked down East Bay street in Charleston that I’d love to be able to go back to the 19th century for a week and experience Charleston. I think I’d be surprised at all they knew and could do. Second place I’d like to go back to is Medieval England. Mind you for only a week or two and I’d have to be wealthy. Yikes! But I would love to see how the castles ran and experience some of that time period. I’m afraid I might be disappointed in some things and shocked at others.
If you were writing a book about your life what would the title be?
Am I there yet?
What one novel did you read that made you want to be a part of the story?
It would have to be Gone with the Wind. The balls, the dresses, Rhett ;o), and of course Scarlett.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I’m one of those people who is afraid to do anything that might get me called out on. My hubby drives me crazy when he pulls up to the front of a store in a no parking, fire zone and hops out as he says to me, “I’ll be right back.” I always scoot over and drive around the parking lot until he comes out. He thinks I'm paranoid. ;o) So I’m afraid I haven’t done too much crazy stuff. Two silly things come to mind. I used to coach cheerleading and me being the wonderful model of adulthood did flips from one bed to the other when we were staying at a hotel while at a competition. And then the first week of October a group of us took my then soon-to-be daughter-in-law to a corn maze and in the middle of the maze we did a pyramid. People were stopping and taking pictures.

Well, besides cheerleading stunts in the middle of a corn maze, I love to ride horses and my hubby just bought me a Tennessee Walker for an early Christmas present so I’d have to say ride. I also love to camp in our fifth wheel.
