Odin’s Murder is out in paperback, available here!
I’m so excited I can’t stand myself. To keep me from biting my fingernails completely off, Angel and I played 20 questions. (My answers are over at her site.)
Where is your favorite/most productive place to write? I have a small office in my house. There’s a desk covered in junk, two book shelves, three lamps (I hate overhead lighting) a treadmill (with a desk), a small armchair and a desk chair. I sit in the armchair and use the desk chair as my “desk” or “foot stool.”
Music or silence? Silence most of the time. Occasionally it’s too quiet and I remember I can turn on the radio or ipod.
Keyboard or paper? Keyboard.
If you were to publish an autobiography, what would it be called? What? I can’t even title my fiction books much less an autobiography. How about “Tales of a Busy Underachiever” “A Neurotic FanGirl.” Eh.
Who would play you in the movie? It would probably end up someone horrible, like that girl who played Lori on The Walking Dead. Or Renee Zwellger. I hate her. OR, of course, Kristen Stewart. Then I couldn’t even watch my own movie about myself.
What is your guiltiest pleasure food? I can’t eat gluten so really anything with gluten is my perfect pleasure food.
The last book you read that made you claw the walls for a sequel? The Fifth Wave
The last book you wanted to fling across the wall in frustration? Shadows (Ashes Series #2) by Ilsa Bick. *rage*
What author would you want to sit down and have a sammitch with? David Sedaris. I’m pretty sure he would side-eye me to death if I said sammictch though.
Who would you meet for margarita night? Have you seen me on margarita night? Ask my BFF Mo. Odd’s are someone is cleaning me up in the bathroom. So really it’s more like, WHO is willing to meet me for margarita night.
Favorite part of the book writing process? I’m almost done with book 3 in the Wraith Series. I am very happy to be almost done.
Least Fave? When Real Life interferes with my writing time/process.
What do you think will cause the “end of times”? Duh. Zombies. But really? I think the interwebs/social media and the lack of human appropriateness is going to do us in.
When working, what distracts you easiest? The interwebs. Having to go to work. Gossip blogs. Phone calls with Mo to talk about gossip blogs.
Plotter or pantser? I plot while I run. I pants while I write.
Fave Book BoyFriend from one of your books: Connor from Wraith or Gabe from FanGirl.
Fave book boyfriend from another author’s books. Hmmm… I love Adrian from the Vampire Academy books. He makes me laugh. I liked Evan Walker from 5th Wave as I can’t figure him out. Oh and the 15 year old inside me loves Peeta. Sigh. Peeta.
