1) Which element would you choose to have the power to manipulate?
Time! Because I never seem to have enough of it.
2) Castle or cottage?
Cottage. Castles are too drafty and I would spend all my time muttering about the heating bill while stomping about wearing a blanket like a cape.
3) Dot-to-dot or paint-by-number?
Dot-to-dot – man, I used to love those things! I tried my hand at paint-by-number but, if I recall correctly, my horse looked like he was melting. So you know, stick to dots and a ballpoint pen.
4) What is your favorite word?
Oh my gosh, that’s such a hard one!
I think I’ll go with “love.” It’s my business, it’s my birthday (Valentine’s Day!), it’s my favorite thing to confirm with my husband and son. Acts of love can change someone’s day or their destiny and whatever the flip side, the world is still so much better off with it in existence.
5) If you could visit any place in any time, where would you go?
I would like to be sitting in Mission Control, watching the moon landing happen in real time. I can’t even imagine the awe and excitement – we did this, we made it happen, this impossible dream. We took what people assumed was a fanciful act of fiction for so long and made it a reality. Could you imagine? I would love to experience that moment in time.
Tere Michaels unofficially began her writing career at the age of four when she learned that people got paid to write stories. It seemed the most perfect and logical job in the world and after that, her path was never in question. (The romance writer part was written in the stars—she was born on Valentine’s Day.) Her home base is a small town in New Jersey outside NYC, a city she dearly loves. She shares her life with her husband, her teenaged son—who will just not stop growing—and two exceedingly spoiled cats. Nothing makes her happier than knowing she made a reader laugh or smile or cry. It’s the purpose of sharing her work with people. She loves hearing from fans and fellow writers, and is always available for speaking engagements, visits and workshops.
