What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
I’ve got to go old school here—meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans. And a brownie accompanied by a scoop of ice cream would certainly top things off right!
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Tex-Mex is my favorite, but if I can stick some shrimp inside those enchiladas? Magic!
Describe the perfect vacation.
I love a mix of sightseeing and relaxation. I had a friend who just completed this same vacation, and I think I’d like to copy her. She and her husband flew to London with another couple and did tons of sightseeing, and then they did a walking tour through the Cotswolds. Their luggage was sent ahead each morning, and they walked about 10 miles a day for 4 days, taking their time to see the countryside and stop in at local pubs along the way.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
It has to be my blue bicycle. I would jump on it and be transported to another world. I felt independent and free when I rode it.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I crave thrillers! Especially if they have a twist of history in them. Steve Berry and Brad Meltzer are great about mixing those two things into an action-packed thrill ride.

Kallen de Mangeron grew up in a convent, her noble family never knowing of her birth. When a new Mother Superior informs them of her existence, they send trusted knight Griffith Sommersby to escort her home.
