Q & A

1.) If you won the lottery, what would you do with your newfound wealth?
Buy a house with an indoor swimming pool! It's a dream of mine to have my own pool, which I feel sure I would use every day!
2.) If you were granted one wish, what would you wish for?
To be able to fly. I've always dreamed of being able to fly just to be able to leap into the air and fly to wherever I want to go.
3.) If you could visit any time, place, or person, when, where, or who would you visit?
Henry VIII court--I am fascinated with history and would love to really see what it was like to live then.
4.) Besides being an author, what is your fantasy job?
Working as a TV presenter, doing a sewing show to really show how easy and quick it can be to run something up!
5.) What's the most sentimentally valuable possession you own?
Probably my piano. I don't play it often and am learning to play, but I like the fact that it's there and one day, I will be able to play more.
