Unlocked Author Q&A Part 2
Q: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
A: I love to make quilts, go camping, garden, and read.
A: Dust. Because I’d rather read than clean house. In addition to the dust, I have a stack of over twenty books and my Kindle (with countless additional books waiting to be read).
Q: Who are some of your favorite authors?
A: Dean Koontz, Mindy McGinnis, Marissa Meyer, Barry Lyga, Janet Evanovich, Marie Lu, Dan Wells, Patricia Briggs, Leigh Bardugo, oh there are so many great authors out there!
Q: If you could choose only one, who would be your favorite author?
A: Dean Koontz, for his page-turning thrillers. My desire is to write fast paced thrillers for the young adult audience.
Q: Beyond your own work (of course), what is your all-time favorite book and why? And what is your favorite book outside of your genre?
A: I love to read, and I have a lot of favorites, but if I have to pick just one, I suppose I’d choose Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. It not only kept me turning pages, but it also caught me by surprise in the end. Any plotline that is unpredictable impresses me, but I especially enjoyed Odd Thomas because he’s such a lovable character. Koontz writes great thrillers. Outside of my genre – I’d have to say I love the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich. Every single book in the series has made me laugh out loud at some point. I love fast paced, plot driven books.
Q: What was your favorite book as a child/teen?
A: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell
