Don't forget to check out my review of The Reluctant Bachelorette!
How long have you been writing?If you count the six years it took me to finish my first book, nearly a decade now.
What inspired you to write The Reluctant Bachelorette ?The Mormon Bachelor--an internet spin-off of ABC's show.
If you met your husband through a bachelorette show, what kind of dates would you have gone on?
The more creative, outdoor type, like frisbee football or rollerblading or tennis.
What is a secret about you that nobody else knows?
I'm not telling.
What book have you read too many times to count?
Mine, unfortunately, during the revision process. When it comes to other books though, unless I'm reading it to one of my kids, I don't do the re-read thing. There's too many new books out there.
If you could hop into the life of any book character for a day, who would it be, and why?
Lizza from Pride and Prejudice. I'd love to see Pemberley
What is the best piece of writing advice you have ever received?
It's not so much advice as a quote I like by James Michener: "I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent rewriter." It's a good reminder not to get frustrated because pretty much anything can be fixed.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
That when it comes to idioms, I'm ignorant. I used to think it was kill over instead of keel over. And rock the cradle instead of rob the cradle. Good thing I have smarter critique partners. :)
What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Break up fights between my kids, hike, boat, bike, garden, and read. Then there are those thing I don't want to do--like cleaning and laundry and cooking.
What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
