For March Madness I've decided to focus on what's really important. No, not basketball--BOOKS! For the next two weeks I'll be spotlighting several authors. I've asked them 20 questions and posted the answers on my web site, along with their bios. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the real March Madness.
Day Two: Author Christina Dymock/Lucy McConnell
I grew up in a place full of cows, horses, and neighbors. My mom says I was always writing books as a kid, but I don’t remember any of those plot lines. I do remember having a vivid imagination that I could get lost in for hours. I guess not much has changed. I write cookbooks under Christina Dymock and clean romance under Lucy McConnell.
2. I ski, wakeboard, cycle, read, play piano, and try to keep the house clean. But, that’s a losing battle so I’m not too worried about that one getting done.
3. Chocolate. Which is a good thing because I’m writing a chocolate cookbook.
4. I started writing 10 years ago and I finished my first book in 2006.
5. If you had 24 hours to live, excluding spending time with your family, what would you do? This question threw me for a loop. My family is such in iatrical part of my life that to imagine 24 hours without them was nearly impossible. I think, I would want to connect to something older than myself. Perhaps I’d visit the ancient Mayan ruins or go to Greece. I’d want to see something I’d never seen before.
10. Would I find anything growing in your refrigerator right now? Sorry, as a cookbook author, I keep the thing pretty clean. J
11. How would you describe yourself in three words? Determined, Creative, Faithful
