Where are you right now (LVR, DR, Bathroom) and what are you wearing? You have to tell the truth.
I’m in the living room and I’m wearing a t-shirt and Capri pants.
What is the funniest, strangest, or most interesting thing you have learned when doing research?
I can’t think of one thing in particular but my husband always knows if I ask him something off the wall or a random question that it has to do with my writing. The other day I was asking him what would make a car backfire. LOL
What is something that very few people know about you?
Umm that’s a tough one. Let’s see…I can only wink with my left eye.
What is your favorite material item that you own (examples: ipod, Gone with the Wind book, grandmother’s rocking chair)
I have a little photo album that I inherited from my grandpa that’s very special to me. He loved his family very much and pictures were one of his most treasured possessions. It’s just a little photo album with a few pictures from my wedding but it makes me feel close to him.
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 think I’d have to say medieval times because I love reading stories in that time period and the clothing they wear.
If you were writing a book about your life what would the title be?
The Crazy but Wonderful Life of a Stay-At-Home Mommy Writer
What one novel did you read that made you want to be a part of the story?
In high school, The Hatchet was the first book that I really got into. Survival stories fascinate me.
What is the biggest secret you ever kept (of course it can’t be a secret anymore)?
When I was pregnant with my second child, my husband and I kept it from our families for about a month. On Thanksgiving we told everyone by having our oldest son wear a shirt that said “Big Brother.” It was very hard to keep the secret but seeing everyone’s reaction was worth it.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I’ve always been a bit adventurous. When I first started dating my husband, we went on a four wheeling date with another couple. When it was my turn to drive, I went through this massive mud puddle and got us both stuck. By the time we got the four wheeler unstuck, we were all covered in mud.
For fun I enjoy camping with my family. One of our favorite camping trips was in the Colorado Mountains. Being surrounded by God’s creation inspires me.
