Where are you from? I was born in Houston, Texas, grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and spent the first part of my adult years moving a lot: Florida, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Missouri, Texas (twice) and Arizona.
Where are you now? On my couch.
No, I mean where are you living now? Oh! St. Charles, Missouri. It’s just outside of St. Louis.
What’s your birthday? August 28th
What’s Your Sign? I’m a Virgo, of course.
Do you have any siblings? Yes, I have several. I grew up with one brother. I inherited four sisters when my mother got remarried a few years back. I also have a sister and two brothers whom I didn’t grow up with. (there’s a whole story behind that – watch for upcoming book)
Where did you go to school? For elementary school, I attended a private, Catholic prep school for girls. For high school, I attended a private co-ed college prep school. For college, I have nothing impressive to say. I went to community college and have entertained the thought of returning to school a lot. Maybe someday.
How long does it take you to write a book? It depends on the book, but in reality, about a year. Some books I have been working on for years. Others I churn out in a few months.
Where do you get your ideas? From an endless well deep inside my brain where very twisted, strange, crazy and odd things happen.
Would you want any of your books made into a movie? Maybe. It would depend on the book. It would be a great honor, I would love to see how they would interpret the weirdness in my brain onto the screen. No, really. I would.
How can I contact you? You can send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are there other ways to contact you? Well, there are, but your first step is to contact me via email. Depending on the inquiry, I will give you additional information through email.
Do you answer everyone?Yes, I try to. I usually go through my emails every few days and get back to any that request a reply. Feel free to drop a note.
