***FAST FIVE (Q&A)***

1. Thing You’re Most Excited About For Apollycon 2017?

  • I’m super excited to see friends, some of my favorite authors and my readers!

2. Last Trip You Took?

  • Ocean City, MD. I spent three days at the beach with my family and I absolutely loved putting my toes in the sand!

3. Last Thing You Treated Yourself To?

  • A hot fudge Sundae. I LOVE ice cream and hot fudge makes me extremely happy. I’m also a huge jelly donut fan.

4. Last Person You Hugged?

  • My husband. We’ve been together for over twenty years, married for seventeen. I was deeply in love with him the day I married him, and I’m deeper in love with him now. With that said, we’re a real marriage, with real ups and downs, and all of that helps with writing three dimensional characters and relationships.

5. Favorite place in the world?

  • There’s an older country song by Lone Star called My Front Porch Looking In. It’s a favorite song of mine because it describes my favorite place in the world—my home. A lot of the song also perfectly describes my life.

  1. Katie McGarry is new to me so I’m supper excited to meet her at Apollycon. I love meeting new authors.

  2. Katie McGarry is definitely not new to me! I love her books! Pushing the Limits was, to me, a great introduction to the more social and health issues that can be artfully highlighted in YA contemp. I’m super excited to read her last Thunder Road book too. 🙂

  3. I am such a Katie McG fan! Her interview was so sweet. When she talked about her husband – my heart! I am very excited for her next book too.
