What’s your go-to activity to get out of writer’s block?
If the weather suits, a walk around the small lake near us. Otherwise something mundane like washing dishes, allows my mind to wander.
When you were in kindergarten, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I think a teacher or a nurse. I remember getting a toy nurse’s bag which was fun!
Favorite ice cream flavor:
Anything with chocolate! Like chocolate peanut butter!
If you had an extra room in your house, what would you use it for?
I’d definitely use it for my own writing space! I’m looking forward to one day having such a room, but probably not for a while until one of my children moves out!
What is the farthest place from home you’ve ever been?
I travelled to Hawaii when I was a young, single girl. My cousin and I did that trip together. It was a LONG way away! But very beautiful!
What book are you currently reading?
I just finished The Marriage Agreement by Renee Ryan and Safe in the Fireman’s Arms by Tina Radcliffe! Both are excellent! But now I’ve started For Such a Time by Kate Breslin, and although not normally my type of book (it’s about Nazi Germany), Kate’s depiction of the time is breathtaking, as is her story line!
If you were a given a gift card to any restaurant, where would you want to eat?
I love The Pickle Barrel. There’s so many things to choose from.
What was the best birthday present you ever received?
A pearl necklace from my father for my 21st birthday.
When do your best ideas come to you? Early morning or late at night?
Early morning. I try not to brainstorm late in the evenings or my brain won’t shut off enough to go to sleep!
What task do you dread doing each day (or week)?
I dread housework in general and do it very reluctantly! LOL.
