Much more. I didn't even mention the mind candy yet. The new Kris Longknife release. The new Jill Kismet release. Yay, fluffy.
Q: Current book lust?
I want to start reading Victorian Gothic. So The Mysteries of Udolpho, or The Romance of the Forest.
Q: Best place to read?
Anywhere I can concentrate.
Q: Best place to write?
Ditto. But I work best when alone. Shut away and holed up somewhere.
Q: Print or e-book?
Both. Whatever gets me to the words. But ultimately I do like print better. I'd love to have the money to have both versions of my favorites.
Q: Library, bookstore, secondhand shop?
Whatever gets me the book. But I like owning- I don't like giving back a book. It hurts a little inside. Lol. It's mine! MINE, I say!

Pen and paper. Actually, pencil and paper, but whatever is at hand. I have my fair share of yellow highlighter notes, and believe me, that's a pain in the behind to transcribe.
Q: Writing goal?
Uh, write everyday. Create a body of work that I can then mold into a chapbook, or have as a backlog to submit to different publications deadlines without creating something new every time. (NOT that that's a bad thing, just mentally exhausting and not always time effective.)

I don't wanna talk about it. No, really. I dunwanna.

My childhood stuffed cat Dinah (named after the cat in Alice in Wonderland.)

All three? ;-)

Boots of any kind. Followed by flats. I hate flip flops.

East. (I apologize, MidWest, I didn't even give you a chance.)

Hershey's Take Five candy bars! They're superyummy.
