Let's get real...


Share about a failed meal you’ve made.
Pretty much every meal I make is a failed meal. For example: this morning I burned my daughter’s eggs before school. Last night, I over-microwaved leftover chicken. Last week, I undercooked macaroni noodles. This is not my gifted area. Not at all.

Would you rather go to the future or go to the past?
Definitely the past. I find the past ridiculously fascinating and if there was a time machine, I would be in it!

Name three places you’d like to travel to & why
I’ve been blessed to have traveled quite a bit. I’d still love to get to Ireland because—well—it’s Ireland. Also on my bucket list is Hawaii, because a dear friend lives there and I just need that stinkin’ plane ticket and a free calendar! Then, honestly, I’d love to get to New Zealand. I also have a dear friend there, so it’s all just a matter of logistics 😉

What’s one of your favorite books?
I love “The House of Seven Gables” by Nathaniel Hawthorne. It’s one of those wordy classics that you have to chew but is delightfully creepy and deliciously unpredictable!

Creamy or crunchy peanut butter?
Crunchy peanut butter. I need the texture and it just tastes better. I’m also finicky in that I love natural, organic peanut butter. I was raised on Skippy until I was about ten, then my mom did the health-switch and ruined my life. After I adjusted, I in turn maintained the taste of the healthier version and have also made my children into peanut butter snobs.

What's one chore you hate doing?
I don’t like vacuuming. It’s so—boring. And it’s redundant. I mean, you have to do it more than once a year and that’s just too repetitive.

Name one artist you're embarrassed you like.Ummmm…lolol! I shouldn’t even admit this out loud. (or in print). Zac Efron. There. I said it. :P I think he’s cool and has a killer voice and super blue eyes and that being said, I want to clarify, it is nota crush. No. I just am embarrassed he’s on the list of celebrities I find intriguing. But then, I also sort of find Jennifer Lawrence intriguing too . . . I should have led with that, shouldn’t I?

If you could live in a fantasy world, who’s would it be?
Hands down, Narnia. And I would have totally dated King Peter. And, for that matter, Queen Susan would’ve had to consider giving up her bow and quiver of arrows to me, cause I have a thing for archery, you know!

For over a century, the town of Gossamer Grove has thrived on its charm and Midwestern values, but Annalise Forsythe knows painful secrets, including her own, hover just beneath the pleasant facade. When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls. As she sorts through the collection, she's wholly unprepared for the ramifications of the dark and deadly secrets she'll uncover. 

A century earlier, Gossamer Grove has been stirred into chaos by the arrival of controversial and charismatic twin revivalists. The chaos takes a murderous turn when Libby Sheffield, working at her father's newspaper, receives an obituary for a reputable church deacon hours before his death. As she works with the deacon's son to unravel the mystery behind the crime, it becomes undeniably clear that a reckoning has come to town—but it isn't until another obituary arrives that they realize the true depths of the danger they've waded into.

Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it's too late and they lose their future—or their very souls.
