A Ray of Sunshine

What a surprise it was for me to see that I was nominated for The Sunshine Award by Lord David Prosser. Thank you, David, for the nomination. As is the custom, I must now answer a few questions, then make some nominations of my own.  So here we go.

What inspired you to start blogging?

When my books were first published, I knew I needed a platform to reach the people. I had no idea what I was going to say, but I knew I needed to say something. A blog was the perfect way to do it.

How did you come up with the name of your blog?

Anytime I’ve ever had an idea or a plan, the first thing I say is here’s what I’m thinking. So when it came time to name my blog, I thought it was perfect.

What is your favorite blog that you like to read?

I have two blogs that I love, each for a different reason. I love to read J. A. Konrath’s blog, A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing because it is loaded with information regarding publishing. The other one is Chuck Wendig’s terribleminds. I particularly love to read his 25 Things lists, because they are hilarious and informative about writing.

Tell about your dream job.

My dream job is to make a living as a full time writer, answering to no one but myself. To have fans eagerly awaiting my next novel. And that’s exactly what I do. I’m living my dream job, and I couldn’t be happier.

Is your glass half full or half empty?

My glass is half full. I know that no matter what the situation is, it could always be worse. Always. However, the OCD in me thinks the glass is half empty and I better fill it back up before it runs out.

If you could go anywhere on a week’s vacation, where would you go?

That’s a tough question. I could spend forever at the Grand Canyon, taking in the view. But I sure do love to hear the ocean waves beating against the beach. Hmm. I’m going to say northern California, on the coastline so I can hear those waves.

What food can you absolutely not eat?

Seafood. Anything that comes from the water should stay in the water. Ick!

Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?

Milk chocolate, no doubt about it. Dark chocolate is bitter.

How much time do you spend blogging – in other words, are you one of those lucky people who can dash off a blog post in no time, or like me and take forever on one post to get it just right?

I spend very little time on a blog post. By the time I’ve decided what the post will be about, it takes no time at all for me to write it.

Do you watch TV – if so, what are some of your favorite shows?

I love TV. Some of my favorites that are on now are The Walking Dead, Tosh.0, Workaholics, The Big Bang Theory, 48 Hours, Dateline, AxMen, Bridezillas, Rules of Engagement, The Middle, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Homicide Hunter. Some of my favorites that are in reruns only are Seinfeld, The King of Queens, Forensic Files, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Roseanne. I also love British comedies. Mr. Bean, Blackadder, My Hero, My Family, Keeping Up Appearances, Father Ted, Little Britain…all good stuff.

Now, it’s time for my nominations for The Sunshine Award. *Ahem*
