WHAT IS YOUR MUST-HAVE WRITING TOOL & WHY?

 Music, doesn't matter the genre but dear LORD do I need it in order to keep a decent writing pace and distract me from the outside world.

IF YOU COULD INVENT ANYTHING YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

 The ability to travel wherever I want in the blink of an eye. That or make myself a real-life dragon.

 WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR? IF YOU HAD 5 MINUTES WITH THEM, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

 Difficult one! Stephen King is always my go to, generally because I've read more of his books than any other author. I LOVE his work and he speaks to my darker half. If I was to ask him anything - it would be how the hell does he keep himself motivated, or why hasn't he finished The Plant yet... not that I'm bitter on that or anything.

IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

I've already been, but it's the only place I ever want to be frankly - Japan. It is an absolutely stunning country, the culture is just amazing and I could lose myself in the countryside and the Temples forever and never get bored. I want to explore Fushimi Inari in the early hours and find a spot to write amongst the Torii gates.

IF YOU WERE TO WALK INTO A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE WHAT CAN YOU CONFIDENTLY SAY YOU DO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE ROOM?

If it's full of Americans - speak properly and pronounce words right ;). But a room full of people in general? Out talk them all in general volume.

 DO YOU HAVE A WRITING PARTNER?

I have an amazingly supportive husband, a large rescue dog-child who lies on my feet (or wants me to hold her paw, which makes typing VERY difficult), a small rescue dog-child who likes to voice his opinion (which no one asked for), and writing buddies across the globe who I couldn't have done any of this without.

WHAT IS THE MOST RANDOM THING YOU HAVE RESEARCHED FOR WRITING?

I wouldn't even know where to begin, but I'm getting arrested if anyone checks my search history.

IF YOU HAD TO BE SHIPWRECKED ON A DESERTED ISLAND, BUT ALL YOUR HUMAN NEEDS -- SUCH AS FOOD AND WATER -- WERE TAKEN CARE OF, WHAT TWO ITEMS WOULD YOU WANT TO HAVE WITH YOU?

Ooooo, why is it all I can think of is food or drink items... erm. Ha, OK, weird one - my Japanese lip balm (because it's amazing and I couldn't live without it, seriously I couldn't) and a notepad so I could keep writing.
