Would You Rather... with Susan C. Daffron

Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

No question: chocolate.

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw? 

Probably Bridget Jones I guess. I'm not into shopping or shoes.

Wine, beer or vodka? 

Vodka with some type of mixer to turn it into a tropical drink. Preferably on a picturesque beach somewhere exotic.

Camping or spa vacation?

Camping. I love the outdoors.

Water or Mountains?

Although I love the mountains and live there, I would rather live on the water if I could afford it. (Beachfront real estate can be mighty expensive.)

Zombies or Vampires?

Vampires. Zombies just gross me out.

Dogs or Cats?

Dogs. My dog Fiona is the cutest dog ever.

Coke or Pepsi?

Neither. I don't drink soft drinks. It was a huge pain when I was growing up before bottled water was available everywhere. You could only get soft drinks at events, so I spent a lot of time looking for water fountains.

Coffee or tea?

Coffee. And it needs to be good coffee.

Dine out or take away?

Dine out. Someplace nice, please.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops

Flip flops. At the beach with my tropical drink, thanks.

Physical book or ebook?

Physical book. I like my Kindle for traveling, but I'd still much rather read a real dead-tree paper book. It's my inner Luddite coming out I suppose.

Paperback or Hardcover?

I like reading paperbacks, but hardcovers look prettier on my bookshelves.

Pen or Pencil?

Pencil. My handwriting is atrocious and I need to erase a lot.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad

None of the above. Haven't seen them.

Drama or comedy?

Comedy. I write romantic comedy for a reason ;-)

Twilight or Hunger Games? 

Neither. I couldn't even get past the description of Hunger Games. Yuck. I read Twilight, but the main character made me want to vomit. "Ooooh, he's so sparkly!" Ugh. Give me a break.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

Chapstick. It's dry here.

Facebook or Twitter

Facebook. I loathe Twitter with a considerable amount of venom.

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

I'm a plotter. If I even try to "pants" a scene, I just sit there staring at a gaping expanse of blank screen. It's depressing. I like to have at least a rough outline before I start in on my first draft.

Chez Stinky

Kat Stevens is a slightly insecure, mostly bored technical writer who likes her cat a lot more than her boss. She hasn’t laid eyes on her great aunt Abigail since she was eight, so she’s stumped when she inherits Abigail’s house in the small hamlet of Alpine Grove.

Kat’s uncomplicated life gets decidedly less so when she discovers the inheritance comes with some hairy conditions: four dogs and five cats that her aunt wanted her to love as her own. Of course, the house smells like a barn–with a touch of antique skunk–and, naturally, has serious roof issues. And that’s before the three-legged cat gets stuck in the wall and the shower goes kablooey.

When Kat meets Joel, an unemployed techie type with no love lost for his sister, Kat looks past his obvious flaws, given his timely and desirable skill set: a talent for fixing things (and his own tools).

Despite out-of-control dogs, cat fights, dust dinosaurs, massive spiders and an old grizzled hippie passed out in the yard, Kat discovers the tranquility of the forests of Alpine Grove starting to seep into her soul.

And why she can’t she stop thinking about Joel?
