Author(s) I draw inspiration from: Longevity writers like Amy Tan and Stephen King. I’m in awe of their prolificacy. I can only hope that I can turn all of my ideas into novels one day.

Favorite place to read a book: On the couch with an afghan and a cup of green tea nearby.

Book character I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with: Vianne Rocher from Joanne Harris’ Chocolat. I need to get all her chocolate recipes.

The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: The instant my grandmother finished telling me a story. The power of storytelling struck me then and changed me.

Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook: Any format depending on my mood. I‘m still trying to get into audiobooks, but I haven’t quite gotten there yet.

The last book I read: Circe by Madeline Miller. It was absolutely stunning.

CIRCE
By Madeline Miller

Pen & paper or computer: Computer for writing. Pen and paper for planning, plotting, and world-building. I keep a bullet journal with all my notes for my novels.

Book character I think I’d be best friends with: Claudia Kishi in the Babysitter’s Club series. Best friends from childhood to now.

If I wasn’t an author, I’d be: An Artist. I would be an illustrator and embroidery artist. The need to be creative will always itch my fingers.

Favorite decade in fashion history: The 60s with Mary Quant’s mini skirt. The freedom and experimentation of that decade in fashion is astounding.

Place I’d most like to travel: Walt Disney World. It’s my happy place and I’m looking forward to going back again.

My signature drink: A peach bourbon iced tea. I had this for the first time this year and it displaced the spicy Caesar on my list.

Favorite artist: Elie Saab. Every one of his pieces is a wearable, walking fairytale.

Number one on my bucket list: To have a meal at Alinea’s in Chicago.
