What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
My favorite ice-cream is Chocolate Mint
What is you favorite way to spend a rainy day?
My favorite way to spend a rainy day at home is to make hot coca and curl up with a book.  Later watch a movie or favorite TV show,  and to take a long hot bubble bath.

If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?

If I could travel in time, I would go to the future.  I would want to see how my life played out and if I get any grandchildren.  Plus it would be super cool to see all the technology and how amazing our lives would hopefully be.

If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?

If I was stranded on a desert island I would want my husband, daughter and lots of sunscreen with us.  A bookshelf of books would be nice too.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

If I could have a superhero ability I think I would like the ability to be invisible

What do you do in your free time? 

With my free time, I love spending time with my husband and daughter.  My daughter and I have lots of fun exploring Salt Lake City.  We love the zoo, parks, Discovery Gateway, Clark Planetary, ect.  We also love to hit the movies.  I love to read.  I also love just hanging out with my husband and watching our favorite TV shows.  I love to work out at Curves. I absolutely love my AVON business and all the wonderful people I meet through selling AVON.  I enjoy lunch with my sister and friends. And I love walking our dog, Angel.

What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?

The best advice anyone gave me came from my husband, “Do what makes you happy.”

What is your favorite Quote?

My favorite quote is “Just When the caterpillar thought the world was over it became a butterfly.”

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

If I could live anywhere in the world, I would live in Salt Lake.  I love being near my family and friends; and I think Utah is a beautiful place to be.  I love the mountains and all the wonderful activities year around.  I would however, love to visit New York City often.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.

The best thing that happened to be since being published was to be named Writer of the Year by the League of Utah Writers and having a big party with family and friends to celebrate.

Who or what inspired you to become an author?

What inspired me to be a writer?  That is a tough one.  At first I wrote because I loved it.  Then I wrote to become published.  I guess I just feel like there’s something inside me that I want to share with the world.
