What’s your favorite breakfast food? I ADORE breakfast, so it’s hard to pick, but I’d have to say my favorite breakfast treat are crepes with strawberries.
Book you’d like to give everyone (or wish they would read)? I have to pick just one? :) The Farthest-Away Mountain by Lynne Reid Banks. It’s a sweet story with a strong heroine and a lot of fairy tale themes, and I love it.
What makes you laugh? My cat, Delphi, goes crazy on a regular basis, and she often shoots up the chimney. (Pause for a moment and try to picture that). I crack up every time.
Song that never gets old: “Only the Good Die Young” by Billy Joel.
Drink of choice: Tea. Black with cream and sugar, or rooibus with a bit of honey.
Would you rather be hot or cold? If it’s too hot or too cold, I’d say cold, since I can always bundle up. In general, though, I like to be warm.
Mountain, beach, desert or forest? Beach. Always.
Favorite color? It actually changes regularly, but right now I’m loving imperial purple.
Best movie line: “There are some things I know for certain: always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.” (from Practical Magic).
Last thing you splurged on? New Year’s Eve, my hubby and I went to a charming local fondue place and had a feast to celebrate all that happened in 2013 and get ready for the new possibilities of 2014!
Bonus Q: Favorite writing tip: Write what you love, and let the story take you where it wants to go. (Can you tell I’m a bit of a pantser?)
Jen McConnel bought her first tarot deck at 17, and she never looked back. A Michigander by birth, she now lives and writes in the beautiful state of North Carolina. When she isn't crafting worlds of fiction, she teaches college writing composition and yoga.
Once upon a time, she was a middle school teacher, a librarian, and a bookseller, but those are stories for another time.
