Five on Friday questions
1. What makes you laugh?
My husband and three daughters keep me laughing.
Ann: One of the top qualities each relationship needs is humor! It’s a good thing when a family can laugh together.
2. What is one strong memory that has stuck with you since childhood…and why?
One of my strongest childhood memories is reading A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L-Engle. I loved the story and characters and I didn’t want the book to end. This was the point I truly fell in love with books. I’ve been an avid reader ever since.
Ann: I love it when I get lost in a book and its characters. I think every writer will agree!
3. What is the single most powerful challenge when it comes to writing a novel?
The single most powerful challenge for me is capturing on paper the running movie playing through my head accurately and in compelling detail. I can create a scene or even dream a scene but sometimes it takes many revisions to get the written words close to what I envision.
Ann: Right there with you, Lisa!
4. What is your favorite thing to do during your spare time…besides writing?
I love reading. My favorite genres are thrillers, mysteries, and suspense but I’ll read contemporary and paranormal, too. I also love history and enjoy reading nonfictional accounts of people and events from the past. In addition to reading, I’m frequently in the gym for runs and weight workouts.
Ann: Gee, I wish I could dedicate myself to a gym workout!! :+(
5. You get to have dinner with one character from any of your books. Who would you pick and why?
I’d choose Reid Patterson from my latest release, Order of Malice. Reid has done a lot of work on himself. He was a research librarian, turned jury consultant, and is now looking to join the FBI. After he was shot in the last book he began rehabilitation and now has a swoon-worthy body to go along with a handsome face. But looks aren’t why I’d choose to have dinner with him. He is a treasure trove of trivia and facts. I think he’d be a fun person to have a conversation with.
Ann: Well, eventually I’d get to the treasure trove part…but I imagine that hot bod and handsome face would be my main influence. My bad.
Thank you so much for taking part in Five on Friday. I love your covers and the books sound super interesting! I’ve added them to my TBR list.
