Would You Rather... with Savannah Page

1.      Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

CHEESE! Believe it or not I don’t like chocolate. But give me a round of well-aged gouda, a rich smoked wedge, or melted cheddar and I’m in heaven.

2.      Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw? 

I love shopping to a terrible fault, so I understand Becky. But Carrie’s spunk, confidence, sense of humor, fabulous friends, place she calls home, and her career?! What’s not to love?

3.      Wine, beer or vodka? 

I do enjoy a merlot or cabernet sauvignon—something thick and robust.

4.      Camping or spa vacation? 

I don’t do camping at all. It’s always a bit of a disaster and I end up in a sour mood—it’s fun for no one. I’ll take a pampering spa vacation any day!

5.      Water or mountains?

I’m from Southern California so have an automatic appreciation (and twinge obsession) with the water. I dream of making a sailboat my permanent address some day where I can write, read, sip that red wine (and eat that cheese), and kick back and say, “It doesn’t get any better than this!”

6.      Zombies or vampires? 

Neither. Ghosts…now there’s some fun.

7.      Dogs or cats? 

Dogs. Puggles are the best!

8.      Coke or Pepsi? 

Neither. I like my bubbles from mineral water and my sugar from dessert!

9.      Coffee or tea? 

Both, but a strong latte macchiato every morning or cups upon cups of a French press brew always hit the spot.

10.  Dine out or take away?

I do quite a bit of take out, but dining out can mean getting dressed up, meeting friends, not having to do any clean-up. It just may have to be the winner.

11.  High heels, sneakers or flip flops? 

I fancy high heels (but with my feet injuries I sadly don’t wear them as often as I’d like); I wear sneakers only in the gym (Toms and fashionable flats don’t count as sneakers, of course); and flip flops are always in style, quick to slip into, and easy to pair with an outfit.

12.  Physical Book or ebook? 

I read 50/50. Like many, I love the feel of a physical book (and how they dress up my bookshelves so prettily), but the lightweight factor of an ebook and the ability to have a zillion books at my fingertips in a nanosecond is a godsend.

13.  Paperback or Hardcover? 

Almost always paperback. (Harry Potter and F. Scott Fitzgerald, however, demanded to grace my bookshelves as hardcovers.)

14.  Pen or pencil? 

Definitely both. Although I recently found these awesome erasable pens (Pilot frixion) that come in a bunch of colors (and as highlighters, too). They write so smoothly and erase brilliantly. I tell everyone and their dog about them. I’m an organization freak and tend to change my mind a lot, so having an erasable color-coding option is so nice. They’re fabulous for plotting.

15.  Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad? 

Mad Men all the way!

16.  Drama or comedy? 

That’s a tough one, but laughing is the best medicine and mood booster.

17.  Twilight or Hunger Games? 

I’ll admit I gave Twilight a shot and couldn’t get into it. I’ve yet to join the Hunger Games craze, but it’s on my to-do list.

18.  Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

All three are in the purse, but chapsticks are in all the rooms.

19.  Facebook or Twitter? 

They both have their perks. I just can’t decide.

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

I’m a plotter. That’s not to say things go strictly according to plan throughout the writing process. Characters are always throwing wrenches in plots and new ideas are always cropping up as I write. Usually my beginnings and endings are nearly set in stone before I sit down to start the novel, the rest fairly well plotted yet open to change. I’ve always enjoyed the notion of writing being an adventure so I try to put my well-organized and OCD self to the side and let the magic take over.

When Girlfriends Let Go

A novel about love, self-discovery, and realizing sometimes you have to let go. 

Jackie Kittredge is the consummate drama queen living the charmed life. She’s enthusiastic, outspoken, and is always looking for a good time. At twenty-seven she’s got a swanky Seattle townhouse, a wealthy husband, a designer wardrobe, the best of girlfriends, and a calendar filled not with meetings and deadlines, but spa appointments and happy hour reminders. On the outside, she’s got it all. 

On the inside, though, Jackie’s charmed life isn’t as it seems. She’s seeing a therapist, battling the demons of coming from a broken home and a past of promiscuity and heavy drinking. She can be selfish and demanding, sometimes even wearing her best friends thin. And now her marriage—what she thought could be her solid foundation—is on the rocks. Her husband Andrew spends nearly all his time at the office (and possibly with his secretary), and apologizes for his absence with lavish gifts and empty promises. 

Miserable and desperate, Jackie questions if her marriage is worth fighting for. Then a string of events begins to put things into perspective…into a perspective she didn’t quite anticipate. With her best friends by her side and some tough love, Jackie finds herself not only asking if she’s where she belongs, but if she’s who she’s supposed to be. 

This is a passionate story about having to answer some of life’s most important and difficult questions. It’s a story about fear, courage, and personal growth. About what happens when girlfriends let go.
