The is week’s special guest is fellow author,the talented Elizabeth Meyette who has graciously agreed to answer the twelve questions.
1. What influenced you to become a writer?
When I was in third grade, Mrs. McGrath told me I was an excellent writer. I remembered that through the years that I taught. One small comment to a student can change a life. Between her belief in me and my love of reading I didn’t stand a chance—books and writing would always be in my life.
2. What do you write?
I’ve written three novels. Two are historical romances set in Revolutionary America, and the third is a mystery set in 1968. Groovy. I also write a blog called Meyette’s Musings, poetry and children’s books.
3. What type of hero is your favorite?
A hero with a sense of humor. Of course I love an alpha male who is in charge of his life, but he must respect my heroine and her autonomy. But one thing I love about Jonathon is his sense of humor.
4. What’s your favorite country?
Ireland. My husband and I have both been there, but not together. We hope to remedy that real soon 😉
5. What’s your favorite city?
6. What’s your favorite color?
“Pink is my signature color.” (Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias). My daughter Kate and I quote it all the time.) But if you look in my closet, I probably have more burgundy/wine color clothes.
7. What is your favorite hobby?
Reading. I tried scrapbooking because I decided my three children should have their photos, so I gave each a scrapbook for three consecutive Christmases. It took me a year to do each…I’m not a crafty person.
8. Where do you like to hang out for relaxation?
By the water. I am blessed to live in the Great Lakes region, so I love to be on the beach.
9. Do you have a favorite beverage?
Hmmm…a toss up between green tea and Reisling.
10 What is the most unique thing about you?
Apparently my voice. I get recognized by my voice all the time. Once my husband and I were on a retreat 2 hours from home and another couple from out of state checked in right before us. She recognized me by my voice; they had moved away from our town 15 years earlier.
10. Is there a secret that only your inner circle knows that you’re finally willing to share?
Okay, I always have two dishtowels in the kitchen. One is for drying dishes; one is for drying your hands. “Never the twain shall meet.” They should never be confused. But my daughter Kate teases me about this and has actually *gasp* wiped her hands on the dish drying towel right in front of my eyes! And laughed. (I laughed too…and then got a clean towel out) I have a “Lady Macbeth” complex. I am a compulsive hand washer.
