Adrienne Maria Vrettos
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Well, my motto is Be Here Now. But I've taking my new my main character's motto for a test drive. "I'm Gigi Lane and you wish you were me." I think it's really helping my confidence!

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. I'm totally obsessed with (nerd alert!) this PBS series called Great Lodges of the Canadian Rockies. Sounds fascinating, right? It totally is! Anyway, I would like to be cuddled up in a snowy lodge with my family, drinking hot chocolate.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Just the thought of snakes makes me knees go all rubbery. Once I saw a show about anaconda hunters. These men go into swamps in their BARE FEET and feel around the squishy bottom until they step on a snake. And then they pick it up! On purpose! Terrible idea.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Kindness, humor, and patience

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I kissed a friend's boyfriend in high school. It was *not* a very girl friendly thing to do, and I still feel bad about it!
