11 Questions from Andrea:
1. What brought you to the wonderful world of blogging?
* I came across Kristi at The Story Siren a long time ago. Back in 2008. I never knew this reading blog community existed till then. I immediately had to jump in on the fun. I ran my old blog for about 2 years before personal reasons made me have to give it up for a while. Now I'm back with a new blog and so happy :)

2. What do you enjoy the most about blogging?
* I Love the people mainly. All of us are like our own little family and we stick together. I love being able to read all about your lives and what you like to read. It makes me feel better even on my bad days to know I have all of you guys behind me.

3. What do you remember about the first movie you ever saw?
* Wow, this one takes some thinking. The first movie I really remember is called My Neighbor Totoro. I watched it all the time when I was little. I especially loved a part with the dust bunnies in the movie. I know alot of you probably don't know what this movie is. But I still to this day watch it and still love it just like I did when I was little.

4. If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?
*Hmmm....I think I would love to be able to make as much money as I would want. That way I never would have to worry. I could travel anywhere I wanted, could buy all the houses I want. I could have the farm of my dreams and help feed all the starving and hungry in the world. I would be able to do anything I wanted in life. I don't know if that counts as a super power, but I'm picking it anyway.

5. What is your favorite animated character?
*Peter Pan. I love him so much I even have him tattooed on my right shoulder.

6. What is your favorite all-time classic movie?
*Hmmm...I don't know if it counts as classic, but I love the movie Grease 2. I know most poeple like the first movie, but for some reason I always liked the second one.

7. If you had a time machine, where/when would you go and why?
* I would go back to 1990. My father passed away in 1991 so I would love to be able to be grown up and go back and be able to spend the time with him and either tell him not to go or if it was still meant to happen see him for a while before it happened so he could see the woman his little girl grew up to be.

8. What are your interests/hobbies other than reading and/or writing?
*I love to fish. I even work in a tackle store. If I am not reading, I am out on the water with my line in the water. I am even teaching my boyfriend how to fish. It is pretty funny, but he is a good sport and enjoys that his girlfriend is a tomboy.

9. What is your dream vacation?
* I would love to go to Italy. I wanna be able to write the Secretaries of Juliet a letter and have them reply. I would love to have the cuisine and see the beautiful country side. I'm even working on learning Italian just so when I get the chance to finally go, I can speak with them.

10.How would you change the world if you could in one way?
* I would get rid of all the bad influences in the governments around the world. I would love to put true and honest people in power to make the world become a better, more happy place.

11.What is a favorite quote from your own work ( or another person) and why?
* I haven't written anything myself, so I will have to go with someone else. My favorite quote of all times if from Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter. It is "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live" From the time I read it, I have always cherished it. I had a hard childhood when it came to alot of things. My family life was great, but I was picked on horribly. I would always feel shut down and distant and like I would never be anyone. Once I read that quote, I changed my life around and became the person I am today.
