Getting to know the Authors of CFRR - Round VII

Getting to know the Authors of CFRR Round VII!

Just match the author to what they said to the following questions. (Answers will be on the bottom, after their short bios.)

  1. Write or draw (I can't believe I asked this to a bunch of writers!)?  "Yes to writing…and I love to send handwritten notes."
  2. Favorite book of an author of CFRR? "
    It's odd that's it's a CR and not a HR, but I have to say it's My Stubborn Heart by a Becky Wade!"
  3. Favorite book when you were younger? "Any book in the Nancy Drew series!"
  4. Favorite book quote from a classic? " 'I'll think about that tomorrow.' Scarlet O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind" ;)"
  5. Chocolate or Vanilla? "What kind of  choice is that? What kind of question is that? Who picks vanilla??????? What form of madness has overtaken you????"
  6. One item in your purse that defines you (and not your license)? "My keychain. Hear me out on this one. I use my author ribbon keychain, though it's only partially because it has my website on it. Mostly it's because those ribbons go everywhere when I put my keys in my purse which makes them much easier to find amongst all the other junk filling my bag. Prior to using this keychain it was not unheard of for me to lose my keys inside my purse. Even when it was small."
  7. Left or Right? "For what? Line dancing? Are we doing the Cha Cha Slide? Take it back now, y'all!"
  8. Skittles or M&Ms? "M&Ms (especially the peanut ones!)"
  9. Coffee or Tea?   "Coffee in copious amounts."
  10. Paris or London? "Paris, mais oui!"
  11. Plan it or wing It? ""Wing it" for almost everything, but "plan it meticulously" when it comes to writing a book!"
  12. Prince or frog? "I’ve known enough men in my time that frogs are looking pretty darned good!"
  13. Favorite name of a character in one of your books? "Rylan Montgomery"
  14. Regency or Edwardian? "Regency!!!!! Although it would sometimes be nice to give my characters a car. " 
  15. Favorite Bible verse?  "Ephesians 3:20-21"
