1. Book you plan to read

I loved OVERSEAS by Beatriz Chantall Williams so I am really looking forward to reading One Hundred Summers, which will be released in June.

2. Vacay or staycay you plan to take

My dream is to take my children to Lake Como because my third book, LAKE COMO, will be released on August 13th, but we will probably stay home and sit at the pool at the St. Regis, Monarch Beach. When you live at a resort on the ocean, there is really no excuse to go anywhere.

3. Cocktail or mocktail you plan to drink

My favorite drink is one I drank in college: A Toasted Almond: Kalua, Amaretto and cream over ice. It tastes just like a vanilla milkshake but packs quite a punch.

4. Music you plan to listen to

I’ve been writing about San Francisco: all my books are set at least partially in San Francisco, so I’ve been listening to a lot of TRAIN. Many of their songs are about San Francisco, and they put me there when I write.

5. Place you plan to write

I usually write on the love seat in my bedroom, but I might treat myself and write in the lobby lounge of the St. Regis. It was recently redone and furnished like a plantation – beautiful wood floors and upholstered chairs. I think a change of scenery now and then is good for creativity!

Thanks, Anita!
