Okay, so I couldn't think of a catchy title for a self interview. It's late and well, my brain is fried. Now before I start, please scroll down to the previous blog, also posted today for a cover reveal for a new YA book coming out this October. My very talented friend Christine Allen-Riley is releasing her first YA —EVENTIDE — and trust're not going to want to miss this book. And the cover's pretty, too!

Okay, so as stated this week's blog is a self interview...cause I know you're dying to know more about me. Hell, yeah :) So without further ado...

  • What’s your favorite word? 
Is this even a question, 'eh? I think you all know the answer... 'eh. And if I can't pick that one, then it's the ever useful word, fuck. Don't believe me... take a look at this video. And when you're done laughing your ass off, all I'll say is... you're welcome. And read on.

  • What’s your least favorite word? 
There is only one word that makes me want to tear my hair out... cunt. I know, odd for someone who writes erotic romance but I really don't like it. I rarely use it in my books unless some creepy person is using it as a derogatory word. Not that I'm upset if others use it in their books. I just don't particularly like it. There. Deal, people.
  • What turns you on?
Um, breathing. Next question... hey, I'm single. Don't judge.
  • What turns you off? 
I'm assuming this question is intended for prospective bed partners... so smoking. Seriously, it's a real hard limit for me. Again, not judging. I have friends I adore and love who smoke, and that's fine. I'm just not going to jump into bed with you to get all hot and sweaty if you smoke.
  • What sound do you love?
A couple of sounds that I really like, are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike...

Like you didn't know I'd go directly for a Nickelback song... hello... but for reals, anything from nature. Okay, I don't appreciate pigeons cooing at 5 am. And crows are irritating as hell. So perhaps I should rephrase that. How about... the sound of the ocean. Water lapping on the beach. The wind rustling the leaves. Wind chimes. Crickets. Loons—which isn't the same out west as it was out east. The cry of a hawk. Children laughing and singing. A piano and a guitar.
  • What sound do you hate?
Traffic, dogs barking endlessly. Sirens. Basically most of the sounds associated with the city. There's a reason I live out in the boonies. I like quiet.
  • What’s your favorite curse word?
Umm, hello...please refer to the question above about favourite word period. Still stands.
  • What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I would love to be a guide. Seriously. Taking people hiking through the mountains, that sort of thing. There's a reason I wrote Hard Target. And I'd love to be Taylor (though I already know how to fly a helicopter, so... though like her, I'd probably fly it into a tree it's been so long, lol.) I'd also love to be a profiler. BAU unit here I come! Oh yeah, me and Dr. Spencer Reid :)
  • What profession would you not like to do?
 Lawyer. No explanation needed here.
  • If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
Oh, Lucy, you have some 'splaining to do...
  • Dog or cat person?
I have both, but dog. Cats don't willingly go for runs in the woods with you;)
  • Coffee or tea?
Tea. Hate coffee.
  • Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Trek. I love both, but come on... James T Kirk. Jean Luc Picard.
  • Buffy, Angle or Firefly
You are seriously going to make me choose. Firefly.
  • Pirate or ninja?
Ninja. Hello!
  • Morning or night person?
Um, I'm writing this after midnight. Think that's self explanatory.
  • Procrastinator or get things done early?
Again, writing this after midnight on the day it publishes. Think that answers that question. Have I mentioned how many books I have due in a very short time? yeah...I'm waiting, I guess.
  • Introvert or extrovert
God, I'd love to be an introvert, but I don't think anyone here would label me as shy. Ever.
  • What do you like best about writing?
Living the story in my head. Feeling as if you really know the characters.
  • What do you like least?
Those times when you have to bleed every word, and it keeps you away from other things. Though that would be solved if I were better at the previous question regarding procrastination.

Whew...and there you have it. Now you know a bit more about me...and in the end, not sure if that's a good thing. Please drop by my partners in crime to see how they answered, because enquiring minds want to know :)

  1. Lucy - LOL! Fascinated by the fact that you love the sound of a switchblade.

  2. I love that you love ninjas too!! Yes! I don't get people who say pirates. Pirates are dirty and smelly and only live about 2 years in their chosen profession. Ninjas though, ninjas are ultra cool!
