“Go Ask Alice” by Anonymous because I was twisted even back then.

Spinach Florentine

Football…specifically…49ers football.

10. What did they teach you?

11. Tell us something you did as a kid that no one/very few people know about.

I wrote this boy a note telling him that I loved him and my handwriting was so bad that the “l” in love looked like a “q” so he came up to me in front of everyone and said “you…quove…me?” and I just went with it and was all “ha, ha… yeah, I ‘quove you!”

12. Tell us something you did this year that no one/very few people know about.

Ask me 25 years from now ;)

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

A five year old pair of black high heeled Timberlands, love them. They never go out of style.

14. Zombies, vampires or werewolves?

Lesser of the three evils…Vampires.

15. Anything you haven’t written about that you desperately want to?

I would really like to tackle paranormal erotica, just to prove to myself that I can do it.

16. Anything you’ve written about that you desperately wish you hadn’t?

Yes, and I deleted it about a week ago.  It was a terrible oral sex story written about nine years ago.

17. Do you finish a book that is terrible or put it down?

Put it down…who’s got that kinda time?

18. Do you review terrible books or pass on saying anything at all?

If you don’t have anything nice to say…

19. Do you read reviews of your work?

I write shorts so I’m just happy when I happen to come across reviews that mention me.

Red, if there’s no vodka in the house.
