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

I like the uncertainty of the future, the chance that anything is possible, so I’d go back to all my favorite times in history, just to see if they were as cool as I’ve always thought they would be. 

If you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose?

Matt Damon, Albert Einstein, Edgar Allan Poe, Allen Ginsberg and J.D. Salinger

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

My Nook (and a solar charger), my laptop and sunscreen.  Lots and lots of sunscreen.

What is one book everyone should read?

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

If you were a superhero what would your name be?

The Extraordinary Enigma

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

I would love to fly.  I’ve been skydiving a few times and absolutely loved it.  I can’t imagine how awesome it would be to be able to fly any time I wanted.

Doomed by Tracy Deebs

Beat the game. Save the world.

Pandora’s just your average teen, glued to her cell phone and laptop, surfing Facebook and e-mailing with her friends, until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring twelve photos of her as a child. Unable to contain her curiosity, Pandora enters the site, where she is prompted to play her favorite virtual-reality game, Zero Day. This unleashes a global computer virus that plunges the whole world into panic: suddenly, there is no Internet. No cell phones. No utilities, traffic lights, hospitals, law enforcement. Pandora teams up with handsome stepbrothers Eli and Theo to enter the virtual world of Zero Day. Simultaneously, she continues to follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father, her one key to saving the world as we know it. Part The Matrix, part retelling of the Pandora myth, Doomed has something for gaming fans, dystopian fans, and romance fans alike.
