READ A LITTLE, BUY THE BOOK
Jan Schliesman: How often do you Get Lost In A Story?
Vicki Batman: Oh my, I’d say every day because I read every day, for sure thirty minutes before going to bed.
Jan: What are you reading?
Vicki: Right now, a historical romance and a contemporary romance. Just finished my book club read about Madame Tussaud during the French Revolution.
Jan: It was love-at-first-sight when I met my hubby. How about you?
Vicki: Ha, that’s so funny. A slightly inebriated friend and I were supposed to go to the movies and I’d already determined that wasn’t going to happen when the doorbell rang. There was Handsome and my friend explained and said, “You take her.” I said, “No, it’s okay.” Handsome said he would. Seven weeks later on my roomie’s birthday, he called and I invited him to come to the party. All my friends and family kept asking “who’s that guy?” I said, “Oh, that’s Charlie’s friend.” After that night, he kept calling and calling. He wore me down.
Jan: Do you possess geeky computer skills or are you technically challenged?
Vicki: I possess geeky crafty skills.
Jan: Does your heroine have any of your character traits?
Vicki: She loves handbags and Jeeps just like me!
Jan: Most writers have to find their zone before the words start flowing. Describe your ideal writing day.
Vicki: I go to a 7 a.m. workout, have toast and milk, shower and hit the desk. There’s always a lot to do.
Jan: I keep a case of Dasani in my office. What’s your go-to beverage of choice?
Vicki: Diet Dr. Pepper.
Jan: Best vacation you’ve ever taken?
Vicki: Last year, Handsome and I took our #1 son and his wife on a Rhine River cruise. It was truly magical and I hated to leave the boat. I recommend river cruises to everyone.
Jan’s GOTTA ASK:
Vicki’s GOTTA ANSWER : Oh dear, I hope I don’t get in trouble when I say lemon gelato.
