Thanks for stopping by and answering some of my questions!
Why YA fiction? What draws you to it?
Young adult is a lot of fun to read and write. I enjoy many genres but young adult is my favorite. I think it’s great to get young people to start reading at a young age so that they continue reading through out their life.
Pretend your protagonist is at school and opens her locker – what will we see inside?
In Aislinn’s locker you would find the following: pink lip gloss, fruity body spray, a mirror, a feather, cd’s and books!
What’s your favorite sweet treat?
Hands down- ice cream. That is my sweet addiction!
What superpower would you love to have? Why?
I would love to be able to fly. I think it would be so cool to be able to soar the skies and visit distant places.
Hunger Games or Twilight? Why?
I like both. I really love the romance and mystery in Twilight. The fantastical idea of vampires walking the earth with humans is appealing.
But, the Hunger Games has a different appeal. The love triangle (so to speak) is interesting. And the fact that the protagonist (Katniss) is strong, smart and capable of so much is awesome to see!
Can I pick both?
What reality show would you love to be on? Why?
I always wanted to try a game show like “Wheel of Fortune” or “The Price is Right” – they look like so much fun!
Favorite TV show from your childhood?
I miss the old shows. A couple that come to mind are: Full House, 90210, Saved by the Bell, Kate & Ally, Punky Brewster, Growing Pains, Who’s the Boss, and Blossom.
Sum up your book for Twitter: 140 characters or less.
Sixteen year old Aislinn accidentally unleashes her hidden ability to see things before they happen, making her a visionary. Aislinn not only has visionary capabilities but has the added bonus of having a spirit animal which can provide her with extraordinary skills and abilities. Being a visionary is dangerous. A secret agency begins to trail Aislinn and their sole mission is terminate all visionaries. Luckily she meets the striking Sebastian, a fellow visionary who shows her the ropes.
Note from host: That's a few more than 140 characters, but I'll let it slide *G*
Favorite hot beverage. Why?
It used to be black, organic coffee but now I have to drink black, organic decaf…. The caffeine makes me restless (good for writing but not for sleeping!)
Ideal summer vacation.
I would love a vacation to Europe to see all of the historic and beautiful sights, but I would also love to take a trip to Bora Bora and simply relax in the crystal clear water and warm sun!!
You’re stranded on a desert island—which character from your book do you want with you? Why?
Probably Sebastian. He’s extremely handsome, strong, intelligent and compassionate all bundled in one. Not to mention he can get out of dangerous situations very quickly since he has the grizzly bear as his spirit animal!
Favorite pizza toppings.
Artichokes, spinach, roasted red peppers and goat cheese- ok now I’m hungry.
Create an ice cream flavor. What’s it called?
Now I’m really hungry. Ok, I would mix red velvet cake, cream cheese, and graham crackers, and chocolate sprinkles with vanilla ice cream and name it “Messy Red-Velvet Crunch”!
Note from host: Mmmmm.... I'd buy that.
