- If you knew you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
Visiting as many friends and family as I could. If I couldn’t see them personally, then I’d call them.
- Who is your hero and why?
This was a hard question to answer. I have so many heroes.
Oprah Winfrey rose from puberty and sexual abuse to establish a global empire. She’s positive and motivational.
Michele Obama, who didn’t let her background limit the heights she could reach.
Kamala Harris, first black, Asian and female vice president.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg a fighter for women’s rights. I love this quote: “Women will only have true equality when men share with them the responsibility of bringing up the next generation.”
- What do you do to unwind and relax?
I’d love to say, parasailing, bungee jumping and motorcycle riding, but I’m not that adventurous. Reading, walking, hiking, watching T.V. and ancestry hunting.
- Describe yourself in 5 words:
Driven, studious, passionate, impatient, and proud.
- Do you have a favorite movie?
No. I have several: Avatar, When Harry Met Sally, Notting Hill, Possession, The Photograph and any disaster film.
- What inspired you to write this book?
Under Cover of Night is book #3 in the Lakota series. I’m excited by the idea of pairing people from different cultures in a love match and imaging how they would adapt and change to be together.
This latest book in the Lakota series explores the strength of family bonds and the extremes we would employ to keep them safe.
