1. What’s your favorite movie of all time? Why? This question is so tough because I’m a major movie fiend! But for sheer cinematic brilliance, suspense, and characterization, I’m going to go with Jaws. The scene when Brady Hooper, and Quint are in the cabin singing “Show Me the Way to Go Home,” and the shark starts ramming into the side? Brilliant! (And Quint’s monologue about the sinking of the Indianapolis is one of my favorites, too.)
2. What’s the first thing you watch on your DVR each week? What’s been sitting unwatched for three months? Well, usually I’d say The Vampire Diaries, but the last few episodes have been a little disappointing. Maybe it’s the loss of Tyler and Jeremy, or maybe that they’re milking the Klaus subplot, but for whatever reason, it’s just not as addictive as it once was. Personally, I can’t wait for the return of Downton Abbey, Sherlock, and Doctor Who!
3. American Idol, X Factor or The Voice? Why? I LOVE The Voice! One of the things that makes it so entertaining is the chemistry between the four judges. Blake and Adam have that cute man-crush on each other, Christina and Adam are always sparring (but you know they totally respect each other), and Cee Lo is just hilarious with his red outfits and that white cat he’s always stroking. He also has the best smile on television.
4. What was the first concert you ever went to? Who haven’t you seen that you’re dying to? I’m not a big concert-goer, but one of my very first was Jimmy Buffett. As you can imagine, it was quite fun! My husband saw Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band and said it was the most amazing concert he’s ever been to, so Bruce would definitely be at the top of my bucket list.
5. What would your Oscar speech sound like? Very short. Something along the lines of, “Thank you to everyone I’ve ever known. I can’t believe I’m here. Now please let me get off stage.”
6. Pinterest or no interest? No interest yet. I can barely keep up with Facebook and Twitter.
7. If your book is made into a movie, who plays the lead role(s)? Aw, fun question. I like to let the readers use their imaginations when envisioning characters, and most of the actors I’d choose are too old for the roles anyway. But keeping that in mind, here are a few actors who flitted through my mind as I was writing. Lily Collins (Emma), Olivia Thurlby (Michelle), Steven R. McQueen (Owen), Annasophia
