What was the hardest book for you to write? I think Past Imperfect was the most difficult to write because it was my first sequel and because it’s about time travel it has a non-linear structure. I had to reread the first book and figure out how to work events in before, during, and after those events. It was harder than I imagined, but I’m really happy with the result.
If you had the choice, which supernatural/paranormal character would you want to become? I think I’d want to be a witch. I love the idea of having magical powers so I can curse my enemies. But it would also be nice to make good things happen for the people I love. Plus, I’d never have to clean the house again. I could just cast a spell and poof, it’s clean.
Favorite breakfast food? Anything sweet—I love French toast, pancakes and just about any pastry. So I guess it also has to be a carb. With a side of bacon.
Mountains or ocean? I live in Florida, so I think everyone expects me to say ocean, but honestly, I’d live in the mountains if I could. I love the crisp air and the views. Plus, if you go up high enough, there’s usually snow. I’m not a fan of the heat or humidity.
If you could time travel back to any period in history, when would you go? As a fan of the time travel trope, I’ve spent lots of time thinking about this. I would love to go back to ancient Egypt and finally figure out how the pyramids were built. I’ve always been fascinated by their culture and there is still so much that we don’t know. Wouldn’t it be great to suddenly have all the answers?
