In Which I Discuss the Merits of Chocolate...

Before we get to the chocolates, the lovely Andrea at The Enchanted Writer interviewed me about how I use writing in my day job (Which I do. A lot!). Hop on over and check it out.

Also, I found this post through Janet Reid's blog. It's a MUST READ. Yes, it's long. Read it anyway. Memorize the final paragraph.

Okay - on to the yummy stuff.

Last week, David Powers King gave me a "Super Sweet Blogging Award," which means I get to answer a bunch of fun questions for you folks. Here we go:

1: Cookies or Cake? Is both an acceptable answer? I think I’d lean toward cookies, though my family has a hilarious story that involves me swiping frosting from my aunt and uncle's wedding cake. I was a kid, I swear!

2: Chocolate or Vanilla? By itself? Chocolate all the way. Sometimes I like vanilla better if I’m combining it with lots of toppings, though.

3: What is your favorite sweet treat? It’s a toss-up between my mom’s mint brownies and my grandma’s apple bars. Yum!

4: When do you crave sweet things most? With anything salty.

5: If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? Actually, my nickname when I was little was Coco, so I guess I’ve always been sweet!

And, if you haven't gotten your free copy of Running in the Dark yet, don't forget to get the promo code here.


  1. Mmm, those mint brownies sound good!

  2. I was sweet last week, but it sounds like you're sweet all the time - and I would have to agree, because you always say very nice and sweet things on my blog :)

    (aahhh, that was sweet:)

  3. New follower here. Nice to meet you!

  4. Love your nickname and all your answers. Mostly, because they sound a lot like the ones I would have.

  5. Congratulations on your sweet award. If you're nickname was Coco, it's a perfect award!
