Top 10 with author Monique O'Connor James & GIVEAWAY

Top 10 with  Monique O'Connor James
author of The Keepers
plus a giveaway!!

I would like to thank Monique for taking time out to answer a few questions for me. She is the author of The Keepers.
Goodreads Summary:
Jess denies God. In his infinite wisdom, he's taken everyone she's ever loved. Moving to the French Quarter was a ploy to erase the guilt she felt for rebuking her faith. Perhaps, if she hadn't met Justin, an angel preoccupied with getting back into God's good graces, and drowning in his hatred for humanity, her plan would have worked.
Justin's general disdain for the human race makes him difficult to like, but some higher power has appointed him her keeper. Justin's convinced he can mend her broken relationship with her maker, but in the process he learns a thing or two about his own humanity.
Never mind falling in love, that's not supposed to happen. In fact, it may even be forbidden. Jess just wants Justin to understand her plight, and he wants to protect her from a world she doesn't know. If neither are equipped to save the other, then whose soul will live and whose will perish.
1. FAV book/author - My Favorite Book is always the one I'm currently reading lol. I just finished A Demon Made Me do It By Penolope King. I didn't expect to love it but I do :)

2. FAV music/artist - I love alternative rock, Foo Fighters, Seether, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Oh Geez I could go on forever!

3. FAV thing to do during your down time - I don't really have any downtime. I rarely watch TV, but I do love to read and hang out with friends. When I'm not working, I'm momma, wife, and author, so there is little time left over for anything including sleep lol.

4. FAV season - OOOh Spring. However, here in Louisiana we rarely get one. We usually go from cold to Ninety degrees and there's not much of the lovely days of seventy-five degrees and sunny.

5. FAV color - black and pink

6. FAV food - Well, I'm not a big foodie. I love boiled seafood, crawfish, crab, and shrimp. But this past winter I had an allergic reaction to shrimp! I was devastated.

7. FAV item you cannot live without - My Cell Phone and Laptop probably tie for this one!

8. FAV movie/actor - I like funny guys like Adam Sandler, Owen Wilson, if we're talking hunks, then Colin Farrel, Brad Pitt, I have this thing for skinny boys.

9. FAV place to visit - I love the beach!

10.FAV toy from your childhood - Ya know I was never the kind of kid that liked toys. I liked to pretend....hmmm interesting.
Thanks so very much for all these great answers..and yes, living in the south I sympathize about not having a spring or summer...its either really hot or really cold. But mostly I sympathize about the shrimp...I LOVE shrimp..so I would be devastated too. You can also check out her short story The Mulligan Man which will release next week on the 26th.
