Top 5 places you want to vacation in the world

1. Paris, France - because I've always wanted to picnic with my love on the banks of the Seine and explore Paris at night
2. Germany, particularly Bavaria (my great grandparents were from this region).
3. Kyoto, Japan - in the Spring for cherry blossoms
4. Tibet - I want to see Mt. Everest
5. The Galapagos Islands - because the creatures there are just plain cool and don't exist anywhere else

Top 5 Books of all time and why

I think this list is one that will change over time, but currently these are my top five:

1. Hamlet (which I know is actually a play) because I can read it over and over and still see new things. It has it all - teen angst, murder, family intrigue, great speeches.

2. The Harry Potter series (I'll count the whole series as one book) because who doesn't want to go to Hogwarts and learn how to do magic?

3. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee because it's the first book I remember reading that really moved me and stayed with me.

4. The Hunger Games series because its everything I want in a book series. I want to be Katniss even though she lives in a terrible place and situation. I can't help myself for wanting to see the Hunger Games arena even though it's gruesome. And Peeta . . .

The Hunger Games is a series I want to read and re-read. There's such depth to Suzanne Collins' writing. It's a page-turning read but with serious issues and themes woven throughout. It's fun and makes you think. Brilliant.

5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern because after I read it I couldn't stop thinking about it. I finished it weeks ago and I'm still wishing there really was a Night Circus and I want to go to it and dress in black and wear a red scarf and eat chocolate mice. I've never read a book before where the author created so utterly and completely and believable magical world that I wish really existed. It's Harry Potter for adults.

 Share your writing day with us.

My ideal writing day is to get to my desk by 8:30 a.m. and write new material until lunch. Then after lunch and social media/e-mails, I edit in the afternoon until about 4:00. That's ideal but I'd say that only happens about half of the time. If I don't get my morning writing done, then I write at night after I've put my kiddo to bed. I actually think some of my more creative ideas come when it's dark outside.


  1. Great guest post! I would love to go to the Galapagos Islands too. It sounds so cool and beautiful. I completely agree with Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games. Those are 2 of my favorite series ever. To Kill a Mockingbird was an excellent book too.
