Would You Rather with Barbara Oliverio

Please welcome Barbara Oliverio author Love on the Back Burner

About Barbara:

Barbara Oliverio is the daughter of Italian immigrants and grew up in North Central West Virginia with a love of reading and a passion for learning. Following a career path that included being a teacher, journalist, and marketer, she has lived as far away from home as Italy where she practiced her family's native tongue as well as took advantage of living near to other European countries to travel extensively. A rabid Pittsburgh Steeler fan, she lives with her husband, an equally committed New York Giants fan, in suburban Denver where off-football-season dinner conversation is calmer and is usually accompanied by a meal she cooks from one of her mother's treasured recipes. Other interests include New York Times crossword puzzles, good movies, and travel. She volunteers extensively for her parish and writes for its publications. She also teaches part-time for the St. Catherine of Siena Institute.

Would You Rather... with Barbara Oliverio

Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

Chocolate - The darker the better!

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw? 

Carrie Bradshaw - I think it's the fabulous shoes that draw me to her. 

Wine, beer or vodka? 

Vodka, if I must choose from these three, but I'd rather have a nice single malt scotch.

Camping or spa vacation?

Spa vacation, all the way! My idea of roughing it is a hotel without room service.

Water or Mountains?

Water - Ah, the beach!

Zombies or Vampires?

Zombies - preferably those from "Shaun of the Dead"

Dogs or Cats?

Neither dogs nor cats -- sorry, just not a pet person.

Coke or Pepsi?

Pepsi -- And I've taken the taste test and can tell the difference.

Coffee or tea?

Tea, please -- Green, iced.

Dine out or take away?

Dine out  - let someone else clean up the table!

High heels, sneakers or flip flops

High heels - I refer you to Question #2

Physical book or ebook?

Physical Book - I'll read and pubish ebooks as well, but nothing feels as good as a brand new physical book.

Paperback or Hardcover?

Paperback - Trade size

Pen or Pencil?

Pen - black

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad - No! No! No! I refuse to make this Sophie's Choice. Love them all!

Drama or Comedy?

Comedy -- but love a good drama on occasion.

Twilight or Hunger Games? 

Hunger Games -- No vampires for me.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

Lipstick -- M.A.C. brand, "Goes With Everything" color. If they discontinue it, I'll be lost!

Facebook or Twitter

Facebook -- Difficult to be constrained to 140 characters

Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants? 

Plot basics of  entire novel -- but then, occasionally let characters take me where they themselves want to go. Sometimes they have a better idea!

Love on the Back Burner

Readers' Favorite Award™-Winning Love on the Back Burner spins the story of sassy Alexandria D'Agostino. She is youngest in a tight-knit Italian-American family with a successful marketing career and a passion for cooking, yet her romantic life is less than 4-star. For years, she has tried cooking her way into men's hearts by flaunting her old world culinary skills, but now, she's changing the menu. She dishes up childhood favorites to a succession of first dates (recipes included). The book features an engaging cast of characters including a rock-star-turned- priest brother, a no-nonsense Italian immigrant grandmother, and a crew of friends who are always up for a good meal. With a dollop of persistence and a dash of laughter, will Alexandria discover the recipe for happiness -- and perhaps love?
