Let's have a chat with...Kristin Walker!

Today, we have a wonderful debut author whose book releases today called A Match Made in High School. I really recommend reading it! You can find a review for it on my blog below this post.

1. You have a plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Ever since watching Under the Tuscan Sun, I've wanted to visit Positano (or anywhere on the Amalfi coast, for that matter). I even found a webcam streaming live from a hotel in Positano, looking over the town and out to sea. I like to watch it sometimes. What a dork I am.

2. What is your favorite citrus fruit?
For years, I have waited for someone to ask me this question, because my choice is not merely my favorite citrus fruit, but my favorite fruit of all. It is the humble lime -- the most underrated fruit on Earth. It works in sweet dishes. It works in savory dishes. Mexican to Thai, drinks to desserts, the lime does it all. It brightens a cosmopolitan and prevents scurvy. What's not to like? Lime lovers unite!

3. Tell us a random fact about a character in your book.
Fiona has a major fangirl crush on Jack White.

4. What was the last book you read? And review it in three words.
MY ÁNTONIA, by Willa Cather. Absorbing sensory adventure.

5. Are you a lefty or a righty?
Righty. But I can write backwards with my left hand. It's not pretty, though.

6. Why do you write? Do you write more at night or in the morning?
I write because I love it and I can do it while staying home with my kids. As for writing time, I take any I can get. Sometimes early morning, sometimes late night, sometimes marathon weekend sessions, sometimes on long car trips (not when I'm driving!). Whenever.

7. Where can we find you on the net?
also at the Tenners:

8. What next for you?
Apparently, I'm supposed to write more books, so I guess I'll do that. Wish me luck!

9. Any last words?
Just to say that this was fun! Thanks for having me here!

Thanks for the interview, Kristin!
