20 Questions With Tasha Harrison: "...writers drink a lot. I mean, A LOT!"

Today's 20 Questions are with Tasha Harrison who is one of my favorite people to hang with on Twitter. She runs (like for real, not what I do), writes dirty words and loves my boys the Ravens. So um...she's pretty much perfect, yes?

Happy hump day!

Note: Game of Thrones was not back on air at the time these questions were sent :) 

1.       Favorite YA book?
I don't read a lot of YA but, my favorite recent read is the HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY

2.       It’s a meatless meal night. You eat…
Probably a stir-fry or a salad of some kind. My favorite right now is a meatless taco style quinoa salad with black beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado, red onion, garlic and cilantro.

3.       Football or baseball?
Football. Definitely Football. GO RAVENS!! Super Bowl Champs!!

4.       Look at your bookshelf. Top shelf, left to right, what are the first five books you see? No cheating!
The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe
The Talisman, Stephen King and Peter Straub
Black House, Stephen King and Peter Straub
Madonna's Sex Book
Grimms Complete Fairy Tales

5.       Average night. Eat in, eat out, or takeout?
Eat in. I'm on this 'clean eating' kick.

6.       Favorite meal to cook?
I really like to grill so anything I can throw on the grill works for me. Grilled salmon and corn are some of eats that repeat from weekly. Oh and chicken wings. I have a weakness for chicken wings. (YUM)

7.       Favorite TV show when you were a kid?
The Cosby Show, hands down.

8.       Favorite TV show now?
It's hard to say because it changes from season to season but, if I'm considering what shows I'm watching right now, I'd say Scandal and Shameless as a close second. Of course, that is only until Game of Thrones comes back on.

9.       Best teacher you ever had…
Mrs. Burrows, grade four. My only black teacher if you can believe it.

10.   What did they teach you?
She wasn't the nicest but, she was very encouraging and was probably the first to discover that I had a talent for telling stories.

11.   Tell us something you did as a kid that no one/very few people know about.
I was an Air Force Brat and we were stationed in Germany for three years. We didn't live on post but, instead rented an apartment off post in a little town called Haupstuhl. It was essentially a tiny farm town. Three doors up there was a farm that my friend Stacy and I spent hours exploring. One day we stumbled on some goose eggs. Of course, instead of leaving them be we decided that we would steal the eggs and hatch them ourselves! So in the backyard we collected these eggs. Made a warm little nest for them. And in a few weeks all them mysteriously disappeared but no little goslings. :-( So we stole more, vowing to watch them more closely. Again they hatched, leaving behind the shells and no baby goslings. :-( I'm not sure how many times we repeated this exercise before we finally gave up but, the people who lived next door magically had a few geese the following summer.

12.   Tell us something you did this year that no one/very few people know about.
I went to my first writer's retreat! It was fun and also...writers drink a lot. I mean, A LOT!

13.   What one clothing item can you not live without?
running shoes

14.   Zombies, vampires or werewolves?

15.   Anything you haven’t written about that you desperately want to?
I've had this paranormal story nesting on my hard drive and in the back of my mind for at least six years now. Every now and then I open it and write a little bit but, I'm not exactly sure what keeps me from really getting down to business with it.

16.   Anything you’ve written about that you desperately wish you hadn’t?
Fisting. It's not that I wish I never wrote it but, I wish it didn't make me feel nervous that people will read it. :-/

17.   Do you finish a book that is terrible or put it down?
I was once a person who finished every book I started but now I realize I have precious little time to waste on books that I don't love.

18.   Do you review terrible books or pass on saying anything at all?
Most of the time I pass. Unless it's really horribly bad. Like so bad that it would cause me great discomfort to hold my tongue.

19.   Do you read reviews of your work?
Yes, but I only take them with a grain of salt. Not everyone is going to like what I write.

20.   Red wine or white wine?
