You have been given your Dream Vacation. Where are you going and what are you doing?
I am going to Hawaii and learning to surf. I’ve been to Hawaii before, so I know how beautiful it is, and learning to surf is the only thing on my bucket list.
What if you could travel to a different time period?
I think I would stay here. So many people nowadays lament the loss of “the old days” and “old-fashioned values,” but I look around and see how much better off we all are than before. My husband and I are not of the same race, so we couldn’t have gotten married and had a child too long ago.
Are you a planner or a seat-of-the pants traveler?
In theory, I’m a planner, but my vacations never work out that way. I plan to plan, but then I get busy and wait until the last minute. And even on the rare occasions when I do have time to plan, I like to build in time for unplanned wandering. I don’t feel like I’ve been to a place until I get away from the tourist attractions and see where the people actually work and live.
What's the worst thing that's ever happened to you on vacation?
I convinced my friend Amy that we should go on a ski slope that was too difficult for us, and she ran into a tree, which tore her earring out of her ear. I documented this in my novel THE EX-GAMES and dedicated the book to her.
About The Book
For Erin Blackwell, majoring in creative writing at the New York City college of her dreams is more than a chance to fulfill her ambitions – it’s her ticket away from the tragic memories that shadow her family’s racehorse farm in Kentucky. But when she refuses to major in business and take over the farm herself someday, her grandmother gives Erin’s college tuition and promised inheritance to their maddeningly handsome stable boy, Hunter Allen. Now Erin has to win an internship and work late nights at a local coffee shop to make her own dreams a reality. She should despise Hunter… so why does he sneak into her thoughts as the hero of her latest writing assignment?
Then, on the day she’s sharing that assignment with her class, Hunter walks in. He’s joining her class. And after he reads about himself in her story, her private fantasies about him must be painfully clear. She only hopes to persuade him not to reveal her secret to everyone else. But Hunter devises his own creative revenge, writing sexy stories that drive the whole class wild with curiosity and fill Erin’s heart with longing. Now she’s not just imagining what might have been. She’s writing a whole new ending for her romance with Hunter… except this story could come true.
