Happy Friday! This week begins a new feature I’ve dreamed up to host: Friday Fun Five. Five fun questions I’ll pose to various people in the writing world. Every Friday there will be a new guest and a new set of questions. Huge hugs and thanks to the delightful Alyssa Cole for helping me kick things off!

Friday Fun Five: Q&A
1) If you could bring one fantasy creature to life which would you choose?
Okay, this question has one obvious answer: Falkor the luck dragon from The Neverending Story. He’s cute, furry, and I’d never have to worry about airfare again.
2) Do you have a green thumb or a black thumb?
I am a plant killer. Whereas plants begin blooming when my mom walks by, I didn’t inherit that trait. Some of my plants have jumped out of their pots rather than be under my care.
3) IKEA and Pottery Barn decor or a mix of antiques and thrift store finds?
IKEA! Mostly for the meatballs.
4) What’s your favorite word?
Judging from the word I have to cut out of my manuscripts the most: ministrations.
5) Say there’s no limit on budget or materials. Design your dream piece of jewelry.
Ooo! The first piece of real jewelry I ever got to pick for myself was a full-finger ring that looked like it was from a suit of armor. I’d try to recreate that, but I’d have all of my favorite literary quotes inscribed in tiny lettering on the ring.
