Temporarily Employed 
5 Easy Questions is an interview is designed to be quick, easy, and fun. Today's guest is Vicki Batman.
What is your go-to meal to order when you dine out? Your favorite "I know it will hit the spot" item.
I love hamburgers and with 3 other friends, we try different burger restaurants.
What were you like when you were in school?
Painfully shy until about age 15. Then I began working and getting praise which naturally boosted my self-esteem and image.
What is your favorite quote?
"Life should Not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming Woo-hoo, what a ride!"
What was the last movie you watched (home or theater)?
Boyhood—follows a boy for twelve years. It is interesting how he changes over time physically. What happens to him and his family.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
Hmm. I have a different answer. My hero, Handsome, has the ringtone "Diamonds Are Forever." LOL

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Author Name: Vicki Batman

Blurb (up to 300 words):
Hattie Cook's dream job is down the toilet and her new SUV violated. Desperate for cash to cover the basic necessities of rent and food, she takes a temporary job at Buy Rite insurance company where she uncovers an embezzling scam tied to the death of a former employee--the very one she replaced. The last thing she wants is to clash with By-the-Book Detective Wellborn, no matter how much he makes her heart pound.
Allan Charles Wellborn has secretly adored Hattie all his life. He evolved from a pocket protector-wearing geek to a handsome police detective. When the police determine there's more to the death of a former Buy Rite employee, he steps in to lead the investigation. Overly dedicated, always perfect, he puts his job first, even if doing so ultimately hurts the one he loves.
Can the killer be found before Hattie's time is up?

  5. Hi Mrs. N! I love hamburgers. Love, love, love. I just tried one called Larkburger (no, no meadow larks were harmed in the making of the food. lol) The meat is very fresh and a small fat patty over the skinny frozen ones we are used to seeing. My group gets a good laugh and lots of great food through our burger adventure. I'm so glad you can relate to Hattie. Let me know what you think. Hugs!
