What's your favorite book to screen?

Outlander. I discovered the series on Netflix last spring—1940s English nurse, on vacation in Scotland, travels back in time to the 1740s and meets a dashing Highlander—and it was love at first sight—for me! I went out and bought the first 8 books in the series—trade paperbacks in perfect condition—and I just finished book 4. I love the show and I love the books, but what makes it my favorite screen adaption is the amazing job they've done on the show... if there's a book, and a movie or TV show, usually the book is way better. In the case of Outlander, both products are outstanding!

What's your favorite color? Why?

Blue. It's pretty much always been my favorite color. In high school, my mom threatened to stop buying me clothes in blue and grey—grunge was in—until I bought something with a bit more color. Since then, I have branched out into clothes with other colors... purple, navy blue, even a little red.

If you were invisible, what is the first thing you'd do?

Find a quiet place to hide with my laptop and write.

What's your ideal vacation/holiday?

With kids, a trip to Disney World or a hotel stay, with a pool, and lots of nearby activities. With my husband, a getaway into the city—NYC is always fun. By myself, a quiet place to write... with lots of great restaurants around!
