How many have you had published?
This is my debut (#4)

o 3. What inspires you to write?
Writing makes me happy. I like to do what makes me happy.

4. Do you like texting or talking better?
Talking. It takes me forever to find all the letters.

 Absolutely not.

o 6. Do you believe in the supernatural?
Depends on your definition of supernatural.

 I could no more pick a favorite book than a favorite child. But a few of my favorites are Hunger Games, The Hollow Kingdom, Fablehaven, Forbidden Seas etc. Shannon Hale is my favorite writer.

8. About how much time a day do you spend writing?
Depends on my kids. I usually try to put in at least 2 hrs.

  1. Great interview!
    Can't wait to read Witch Song, it sounds interesting and it has a pretty cover :)
    Ouch with the anesthesia! I seem to have the same (though not as extreme) problem with numbing needles - 3 needles and 20 mins later and I could still feel the dentists drill :(
