11 Random Questions!

Thanks Jess for tagging me in the Platform Building tag of 11 questions!  Here are the questions she gave me!!
Image Detail

1. What's your favorite song?
This is a hard one, I have a whole bunch of songs that I really like, but if I had to choose one I guess it  would be Fix You by Coldplay.

2. How old were you when you started writing?
I  started writing around six or seven, I used to make up a whole bunch of stories about unicorns, mermaids and other fairy tale creatures! LOL!

3. What's your favorite movie/book?
Hmmm... I guess my favorite book would be The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd.  I loved this book and I really want to see the movie that goes with it!

4. If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be? Why?
I would like to be a dolphin.  It would be so awesome to swim around super fast, and do all of those awesome high jumps that they do!

5. If you were the main character of a book, what genre would it be?
It would definitely be Fantasy!!! :)

6. What is the coolest thing you've ever done?
I think the the coolest thing I have ever done would be participating in the Great Lakes US Figure Skating Championships.  I had so much fun and I got 6th place out of 18!

7. If you could be a character from any book, who would you be? Why?
I think I would be the character Kari, from Susan Runholt's book's, The Mystery of the Third Lucretia, Rescuing Seneca Crane and The Adventure at Simba Hill.  Kari goes on all these cool adventures with her best friend Lucas (which is a girl) and has to figure out all of these mysteries before something really bad happens or time runs out!!

8. What genre do you write in?
I write in Historical Fiction.

9. What's your favorite thing to do other than write?
That's an easy one!  I love to figure skate!  That's my absolute favorite thing to do!  I figure skate almost every day of the week, (sometimes I do skate every day of the week!) and we skate for as little as 40 minutes up to 3 1/2 hours!!

10. If you could meet one historical figure, who would it be?
It would either be Abigail Adams, or Mahatma Gandhi.  I can't choose one!

11. Is there anything else we should know about you?
I also love to read and bake!! :)

  15. That's so awesome that you write historical fiction! I love history (so much that I majored in it in college!), but I haven't been able to bring myself to write anything historical because I'm too afraid of messing something up...which is why I write fantasy instead =)
