1) What everyday rituals start your morning?

As a pet mommy, a lot of my “rituals” are more like duties. =) But my husband and I managed to make the mundane more enjoyable. I used to hate the first morning dog walks–I was always half asleep and cranky and especially in the winters, I was just miserable to be outside! But after our dog Red was diagnosed with cancer, it really made both Sean and I stop taking all those little moments for granted. Suddenly, those annoying morning walks were little gifts of time that we treasured. And so Sean and I instated what we call the “coffee walks” in which we make coffee, feed the animals, put the coffee in a to go cup and take the dogs for a 30 minute walk. It’s an amazing start to our day and a great way for us to connect without any electronic distractions. We lost Red to cancer back in June and have since adopted a new puppy (who requires a LOT more walks, haha). But even though Red has passed, the coffee walks are here to stay.

2) Tom Waits or Tom Jones?

I feel like Tom Waits would be the “cooler” answer, but I really love me some Tom Jones!

3) Woodsy cabin or five-star hotel?

Hotel. Now, if you had said a cozy cottage or five-star hotel, I would have had a bigger debate in my head… but I’ve only ever been camping once as a kid and I was sent home early because I spent the whole weekend crying because I saw a spider! Lol, yeah, I hate admitting that story, but it’s true.

4) What is your favorite word?

Ahhh! There’s so many. And it changes constantly. Pontificate is a fun one. Reticent, clandestine. But if you asked my husband, he would say that the F-bomb is my favorite based on how much I use it!

5) Say personal safety is not an issue. What natural phenomena would you like to experience up close?

If I was guaranteed no harm… I would love to be in a tornado. I’d finally know what it felt like to fly and it would probably feel a bit like a roller coaster if you took the fear out it.

Katana Collins splits her time evenly between photographing boudoir portraits and writing steam-your-glasses romances. katanaShe is the author of the best-selling paranormal Soul Stripper trilogy, the erotic suspense series, Wicked Exposure, the graphic novel, Cafe Racer, and the small town contemporary romance Maple Grove series. She and her comic book artist husband commute back and forth between Brooklyn, New York and Portland, Maine, with their ever-growing family of rescue animals (two dogs, a cat, and counting!). She can usually be found hunched over her laptop in a cafe, guzzling gallons of coffee, and wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.
