I sent the FABulous Kristan Higgins an e-mail loaded with silly questions, and she actually took the time to answer them. Here's the kicker though - even though I already knew some of the answers because I've actually spoken with her, her answers still had me cracking up! Read on to learn more about this FABulous author, why she writes, her love for the four-legged types, her newest projects, and more. But don't expect to learn what her favorite drink is, because she just won't tell!
dee: What made you decide to become a writer? Was it craziness? A lifelong dream? A whim? Couldn't stand your day job?
dee: Who are some of the authors that you really admire? What about them makes you like them? Their writing? The way they handle their career? The fact that they give back to the writing community?
dee: What is the most interesting job you've ever held? The most demanding? The most rewarding?
dee: Since becoming published, have there been any cool things that have happened to you? FanGirlSqueeFest moments? Crazy letters of praise? Any hate mail? What do you do about them (both good and bad ones)?
I've had two hate letters, one because I had an 18-year-old use the F-word, one because she thought I was perpetuating a myth that the good people of Labrador still club seals...I'm still scratching my head over that one.
dee: You know I have to ask... what's the weirdest 'crush' you've ever had? Did you really crush on your priest?
dee: What is your next book? When does it come out? Tell us a bit about it. And the one after that, if you want... :)
dee: Have you always been a dog person? Have dogs helped you through rough spots in your life, like Colonel did for Maggie?
dee: And finally...When you are away at a writer's conference, what is your favorite drink to order at a bar? :)
