What is your favorite thing about writing?
I love creating stories and watching my characters grow and develop as they get through each situation. I love the way characters come to life with their own voices and their own personalities. And I love seeing people’s reactions when they read my books and realize that my stores are as good as I claim, and I actually am an author – I’m not just saying I am 🙂
England! Absolutely it would be England! I lived there for a semester doing a study abroad, and I visited there for a couple of weeks a few years before that. I love it! I absolutely love the environment, the life style, the beauty, and the calmness. It was inspiring to me and I would return or move there in a heartbeat if I could.
Sense and Sensibility is top of the list for me (and it’s one of the few movies that you can watch in Portuguese – which is my second language) But I also like: Independence Day, Mrs. Doubtfire, Groundhog Day, and of course the Toy Story Movies.
My work in Progress is a Historical Romance. It’s about a young lady, Miriam, who loses her sister to a stray bullet. Then, losing her mother within the same week, and having a father so consumed in his grief to notice his remaining daughter, she turns her depression into a plan of revenge. The only thing standing between her and her determination to get even is the man who pulled her from the overturned carriage. But she doesn’t know who he is. She only has a memory of his face and the knowledge that he is the only person who knows the identity of her sister’s murderer.
Ocean or mountains? Both. I have no preference. I absolutely love the mountains, they are calming to me and I grew up surrounded by them so they remind me of home. Plus I love hiking. But I absolutely love the ocean also since I am a California Girl at heart and I miss being close enough to the ocean that I can see it from our balcony, and visit it on a whim.
Chicken or steak? Steak
Comedy or drama? Comedy
Beer or wine? Neither, but if I did drink alcohol, I am almost certain I would be a wine drinker.
Cruise or cabin getaway? Cruise
