Why do you write?: Because I love to! It’s also my job, but it’s nice that those two things can go hand-in-hand. It’s also the way I communicate best.
Describe where you write.: On the couch, on the futon, at a desk, at a table, in a coffee shop, at the library, in the car…
Who or what is your muse?: I have never been asked that and I have never thought much about it. Life inspires me, in every corner and around each surprising turn.
Three wishes . . .: 1. To make enough money this year to keep being able to write full time. 2. To be able to travel more. 3. To have a good, long writing career.
Favorite childhood book, and why?: “Anne of Green Gables,” because it’s awesome.
Explain when is your ideal time to write.: When my kids are at school. Otherwise, it would be all day every day.
Name a book you would reread again and again, and why.: I re-read Anne of Green Gables and Harry Potter just about every year.
E-book or print? Why?: Print! I’m a touch and smell person, so there’s just no substitute for me.
Favorite magazine, and why?: Food Network Magazine. Then maybe Poets & Writers. I am a total die-hard foodie.
What would you like readers to take away from your writing?: Thoughtfulness. Introspection. Inspiration. Freedom.
