WHAT'S LIFE WITHOUT SPRINKLES?
Nate West has always been there for Claudia, a basic ingredient in her life, but suddenly she is flirting outrageously with him when she’s never looked that way at him before — despite his dreams.

She’s as tempting as butter cream frosting with sprinkles, and he’s mighty tempted…

GET TO KNOW MISTY SIMON
MAUREEN: What’s the first book you remember reading?
MISTY: I have very fond memories of reading The Maggie B. by Irene Haas. I lost that book along the way and then found it again at a book store and was so excited I bought three copies. My first romance, though, was one of the Sweet Valley High books and it opened up whole new worlds for me.
MAUREEN: What sound or noise do you love?
MISTY: You know that note the Phantom hits in Point of No Return on the word anywhere? Gets me every time!
MAUREEN: Do you write while listening to music? If so what kind?
MISTY: Everything and anything depending on the mood and the tone I’m trying to set for the scene. Of course, sometimes I listen to something directly opposite just to jar me out of the clichés.
MAUREEN: What’s the most romantic thing anyone ever did for you?
MISTY: My husband proposed to me the moment he knew he wanted to marry me. We were eating French fries and he popped the question then just grinned when I asked where my ring was. He bought it that weekend.
MAUREEN: What’s the first thing you do when you finish writing a book?
MISTY: A little woohoo dance then lots of sleeping.
MAUREEN: Do you remember your grade one teacher’s name?
MISTY: Mrs. Haupt. She was awesome, bowl cut and big glasses included. I loved that she gave us such an appreciation for books with the way she read to us – voices and characters each defined with her voice – every afternoon.
MAUREEN: Did you belong to a clique in high school? Which one of the standard high school stereotypes did you best fit in to?
MISTY: Oh, good question. No, not to any one clique. I belonged to all of them. I was that girl who ate lunch with a different set of people every day and you’d be as likely to find me in a skirt as you would the grunge clothes of the nineties.
MAUREEN: Do you read reviews of your books? If so, do you pay any attention to them, or let them influence your writing?
MISTY: I absolutely do. And if I can improve my work due to constructive criticism then I count that as all good.
MAUREEN: What does it mean to love someone?
MISTY: To me, loving someone means accepting them for who they are, letting them compliment you, not complete you. You’re complete all on your own even if that someone helped show you that truth.
MAUREEN: What would you say is your most interesting quirk?
MISTY: We’d be here all month if I talked about my quirks! The funniest one to me is that I cannot touch untreated wood. If it has a polish to it or varnish or paint, I’m fine. But give me a Popsicle stick or a wooden spoon and I gag. Which is funny considering I used to play the clarinet!
GOTTA ASK -- GOTTA ANSWER
MAUREEN: What’s next for you as an author?
MISTY: Next is more romances and a new contract with Harlequin Digital First to write mysteries! I am so excited!
A QUESTION FOR READERS
I’d love to hear if you like heroines with quirks. Mine always have them, that something that plays into every day life. What’s yours? I’m always collecting them for future books!
Misty will give away a copy of What’s Life Without the Sprinkles and a tote of cupcake mix with cupcake cups and sprinkles included to one lucky commenter!
