A. Attorney, law clerk, salesgirl at mall, grocery store cashier, ninja, international spy.
A. Ninja, definitely.
A. I went to college at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville (GO HOGS!!) and law school at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. My high school--We'll just refer to that as "hell."
A. Harry Connick Jr. Because he's super-talented AND super-cute.
A. Sons of Anarchy. Love it!! Charlie Hunnam is my imaginary boyfriend.
A. Lose keys. Find keys. Lose phone. Find phone. Repeat. (okay, that was 9 words--do I still get credit?)
A. "Dull women have immaculate houses." Or so I keep telling myself.
A. I have lots of fears--heights, snakes, a psycho ax-murderer breaking into my house in the middle of the night. But I think anyone who is a parent will tell you that their greatest fear is something happening to their child (ren). When I put things like being scared of the ferris wheel at the county fair in context with something happening to my daughter, there's no comparison.
A. My mother. Even though that answer sounds very "Miss America-ish."
A. "Do you know what I mean?"
A. Not breaking up with my college boyfriend waaaaaay sooner than I did.
A. Singing. I've always, always wished I could be even a mediocre singer. The sound of nails on a chalkboard is preferable to my singing voice. It's THAT bad.
A. I'm always 5 to 10 minutes late. For everything. Always.
A. I don't mind being bossed around.
A. My complete and total klutziness. I'm always tripping, spilling various food/drink items, and dropping stuff.
A. Rhett Butler is my all-time favorite hero, although I go through spells of liking others like Edward Cullen.
A. People who are underdressed and/or inappropriately dressed. Yes, I'm talking about you, dude who showed up for his job interview in a HOODIE (and not even a nice hoodie--it was all frayed and faded). And you, soccer mom who lets your kids wear their soccer uniforms to Sunday morning mass. I get it. You have a game right after church. Change in the car. Jesus may not care what you look like, but I do.
A. Chocolate, no contest. Preferably dark.
A. Gone with the Wind, The Thorn Birds, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Harry Potter, and Twilight.
A. Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. I practically have the whole thing memorized, but I still keep reading it over and over again. I LOVE him. He's the only author who has ever made me laugh so hard I cried.
A. Join RWA (Romance Writers Association of America), even if you don't write romance because they are the best publishing resource out there.
