Since I can remember, libraries have been a part of my life because my mom took me to one every week. When I had my son, I was determined to follow the tradition.
It’s so amazing to lose yourself in a library full of books and people who love to read.
If you have tumblr then you can read the November 10th McKee Library Interview there.
Thanks so much McKee Library for the interview
I’ve also copied and pasted it for those who don’t have tumblr”
What are you working on now?
I’m working on part 2 of Thinking About Love in my Stonehaven High Series. It’s about Trina Weber, a popular senior dating her perfect boyfriend, Stuart Grant. Everything is great until she decides to make one bad decision that will lead them to rethink their future and their love. I’m dreading all the crying while I write how she has to make some serious choices.
How have libraries been a part of your life?
Libraries have been a part of my life since I can remember. My mom used to bring me to the local public library every single week so I could borrow books. All throughout high school, college, and graduate school I lived in the school and public libraries because they are the best place to study and read about anything and everything. Librarians are wonderful resources. I began taking my son to the library before he was two years old and as a nineteen year old. He still goes about two times a month to one of our local public libraries. And one of his favorite places in his own college is the campus library.
What is your favorite book and why?
I have too many books to list favorites. Each book brings me to a different place. But if I have to choose, then I will select one book I re-read all the time, besides the Bible (because it has so many stories and life lessons all in one place). Stephanie Lauren’s “A Secret Love” is the book that I tend to read at least once or twice a year.
Any advice for today’s college students?
The one advice for today’s college students is to follow their dream no matter what. If you love to read, then pursue jobs where you can read. Or if you like to write, then pursue those jobs. You can have regular jobs to sustain your lifestyle but keep that dream alive until you find your perfect job.
