It's Thursday, so time for one blog hoppin'! Feel free to join in the bouncy fun!
As for my post, I was tagged by the lovely Angela to partake in the 11 Questions Meme!
So here it is...
What are you working on right now ?
Decided to start a new project while I wait on edits. It is another YA that I have been thinking about for a long time, and it's historical, of all things. :)
Do your stories tend to be plot driven or character driven?
I have one of each, so for me it depends on the story.
Name the craziest thing that has ever inspired you.
A Celtic jewelry website. This one, in fact: http://allcladdagh.com/ That was where my YA series, The Holders, was born.
Do you make up character names, or use the names of people you know?
Both, but even when I make up a name, it is usually a name I have heard before somewhere. I'm not sure why, but when I make up a name totally on my own, for some reason it sounds 'fake' to me. Like, "yeah right, no one would ever be named that".
Do your main characters always have the same hair color as you (thanks Marian!)?
Haha! Why, yes. Yes, they do. ;)
Name a television show you watch that you consider a guilty pleasure.
The Vampire Diaries! Which is on tonight, yay!
What's the first name of your first crush?
Dann Lanse. He was a foreign transfer student from Holland in my fourth grade class.
What's the first concert you ever attended?
As a girl who has only been to four concerts total in her life I have a pretty impressive record (if I do say so my self), starting with my first ever which was Aerosmith, the The B 52's, then Reba, and last but not least, Poison.
Which would rather eat, pie or cake?
When you were a kid, what did you always want to be when you grew up?
What was the happiest day of your life (other than getting married/the birth of your children)?
The day in college when I not only got to conduct the choral and wind symphonies, but conduct a piece I had composed myself.
Though I am pretty sure that will change the days my books come out! :)
I am supposed to tag 11 people, but I'm not sure I know that many who haven't already been tagged, so how about this: if you haven't been tagged on this one, then your it! :)

flash mark--I had to scan it with my phone. :)
