What is your favorite book and why? 
Oh man, There are way too many books to choose just ONE as my favorite. Anything by Amanda Hocking. The Premonition Series by Amy Bartol. All the Amelia Atwater-Rhodes books, Except her newest ones.  

What is your favorite movie and why? 
Probably The Avengers. Maybe thats because I just recently watched it. But I loved how I already knew each of the characters from their own previous movies.

 If you could be any character in a book, who would you be? See, the problem with being a character in a book is that you have had to go through all the bad stuff the character goes through before coming out on top. And I'm not a fan of going through hardship. The only thing I can think of off the top pf my head is Mia Thermopolis in the Princess Diaries.

If you could be any character in a movie, who would you be? The only thing I can think of off the top pf my head is Mia Thermopolis in the Princess Diaries. Like I said before, I dont love a lot of pain, conflict and suffering. And what does she have to do? Get ridiculed at school? No problem. Have a boy dump her? Again, no problem. Then what? Rule a country! Heck YEAH!

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?  Why? Again, this is hard! I really want to go to Rome, I would love to see the Sistine Chapel! 

If you could leave only one book for future generations to read what would it be? Im going to have to say, The Bible.

If you could choose another profession, other than the one you are in, what would you attempt?   I would love to be an Art Teacher!

What is your favorite word? Why?
Probably love. :) I love to hear I love you and I love to say I love you! I love to love!

What is your least favorite word? Why?
Well, the opposite of most favorite is least favorite. So the opposite of love is hate. I hate to hear hate and I hate to feel hate, I hate to see other people hate.

What sound or noise do you love? Why? I love to hear my children's voices! And I love to hear my husband sing!

 What sound or noise do you hate? Why?I hate to hear crying or arguing or fighting!
