Thank you so much for having me here today. Leaning Into Touch was just released last week! Woohoo! This is book 4 in my newest series set in San Francisco, which also happens to be one of my favorite places in the US. There is endless inspiration in the city by the Bay from its dramatic hills and seascape to its rich diversity, great food and friendly people.
But inspiration is everywhere. So why not do a quick Q&A about it for fun?
If you could sit on a bench in a beautiful woods, who would you like sitting next to you on the bench and why?
My husband. He’s easy. He can be chatty and funny but he also likes his solitude. After thirty years, we’ve learned how to just “be” together. And that’s a very nice thing.
Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight, or night? Why?
Hmm. This is an interesting question. I’ll say sunrise because I’m up before sunrise almost every day. It’s become part of my writing ritual, which is kind of fitting since I’m writing love stories about new beginnings with a sense of hope.
If you could be in the movie of your choice, what movie would you choose and what character would you play?
The first movie that springs to mind is Pride and Prejudice. I love that book! I could portray Elizabeth Bennett easily. In fact, I might already know most of my lines! lol
If you were a city, which city would you choose to be and why?
New York City. It’s my absolute favorite place. I love its unapologetic diversity, sophistication and its gritty realness. Those are qualities I’d be extraordinarily pleased to possess myself!
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you want to have with you?
Books, music and earl grey tea. Or more accurately, my Kindle and iPod with some form of solar energy battery so I never had to worry about charging because one or two books or records would never be enough!
