What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and black-eyed peas
Describe the perfect vacation.
A road trip! My husband and I like to pile in the SUV, set the GPS (or not) and go where our curiosity takes us, having destinations in mind but at the same time the freedom to stop and explore if we see something that interests us.
What are your hobbies?
I play four instruments and perform in two bands, a dulcimer band that plays old Appalachian folk music and an all-ukulele band that plays a mixture of fun numbers
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Romance novels-what else?
What kinds of things do you read when you're researching a new book?
Wow-that depends on the book. For 'Daughter of Valor' and its two accompanying Lunchbox romances, I Googled everything from prostheses to IED and RPG explosions to grenades to paraplegic sex. I also do hands-on research. For my next book, 'Never and Always', I learned to make soap.

  2. Wow. I'm impressed by the four instruments. One of my favorite professors plays the dulcimer. I'd never heard about it until she mentioned it.
