Q: I know you write and have a full time job, what are some things you do in you free time(besides writing!):
A: My husband and I share a great love of movies and TV, and we have a ridiculous movie theater and a whole room full of DVDs and Blu-Ray movies. We also love art, and go to a lot of art shows. My husband also loves old pulp magazines and comics, too, so I'm getting more into that. I love to hang out with my friends when we can!
Q: Out of all of the characters you write(any book), do you have a favorite:
A: I'd have to say that of all the characters I've ever written, I enjoy writing Shane and Myrnin the most (from Morganville). Although Lewis from the Weather Warden series is in the running, too.
Q: You've been writing adult fiction a lot longer than YA, was writing YA ever a possibility before being approached on the subject?
A: I really didn't have any idea I'd be able to do it - I was aware of the genre and starting to read some really great stuff coming out of it, but I didn't think I could do as well with it. So I think I needed the push to get me started!
Q:If you could trade places with any character that you've read, who would it be and why?
A: Dr. Watson from the Sherlock Holmes stories. I'd just love to see Holmes work his magic firsthand.
Q: What are some of your favorite authors/books?
A: I have so many! Always love Charlaine Harris and Jim Butcher's work, whatever they do ... also really love Richelle Mead and Jackie Kessler (I just got to read an advance copy of Jackie's new book HUNGER, and it's phenomenal). I love Holly Black, Tamora Pierce, and Scott Westerfield as well. Moving out of the genre, I am a ridiculously huge fangirl of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's Agent Pendergast books.
Q: Cook or bake:
A: Cook! (In fact, cooking right now!)
Q: Favorite animal:
A: I love lizards. Especially chameleons and iguanas.
Q:Tv or movies:
A: Why choose? I love them both!
A: Rox, Roxy, Hey You ...
