Kelly Boyce gave me five questions to answer about a week and a half ago. I've taken my time coming up with the answers, but here they are:
1) What was the first thing you wrote?
I know I wrote short plays in elementary school, but I don’t think I ever finished them. The first story I remember completing was called The Illusive Intruders and it was a writing assignment for 7th or 8th grade English. I was so proud of that story. It was about a group of kids who solved a crime with bad guys who “ran pretty fast for thirty-year-olds”!
2) Who is your favorite television hero and why?
Oh, there are so many! Okay, I’ll start with the men from The Unit. I think those guys are my current favorite TV heroes because they work so hard to protect our freedom and us. (And they remind me that there really are people out there doing these things for our country!)
I also love Don Epps of Numb3rs. I can’t explain it other than he seems like such a true character. He’s a great FBI agent, a good leader and yet he still screws up and struggles with that. AND he’s man enough to admit when he’s wrong. He doesn’t always make the right decisions, but he’s got a good heart.
3) If you could be one heroine from a movie, television show, or book, who would you pick and why?
This is a tough one. I think I’d want to be Maggie Sanger from Evelyn Vaughn’s AKA Goddess. (Vaughn wrote 3 books with this character for Bombshell.) She’s tough, she’s smart, she’s got a job I would love. She’s a kick-ass Bombshell heroine who wants to make the world a better place. Who wouldn’t want to be like that?
4) What did you want to be when you were little?
I wanted to be the first female major league baseball player. (Until I realized I couldn’t hit a ball, couldn’t catch, couldn’t throw….) Then I wanted to be a singer. (Until I realized I HATE getting up in front of people.)
5) If you were a color of ink, what color would you be - and why?
Blue because that is my favorite color. It reminds me of the ocean and it always calms me.
