Would You Rather... 
with Yona Zeldis McDonough

Chips, chocolate or cheese?

Without a doubt, chocolate, and the more expensive and imported, the better!

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw?

Becky Bloomwood, because like her, I am a shopper!

Wine, beer or vodka?

Uh…none of the above! Not an imbiber. How about an iced coffee, very light, with lots of crushed ice? 

Camping or spa vacation?

Spa all the way! Why sleep outside when we finally figured out how to come in from the cold?

Water or mountains?

Water, and specifically lakes or ponds. I like my water tranquil…

Zombies or vampires?

None of the above! Can I substitute mermaids, fairies or unicorns? Pretty please? 

Dogs or cats?

Dogs for sure.  I have two and if my husband agreed, I’d have a third. 

Coke or Pepsi?

Not a soda gal either. Make mine a lemonade, freshly squeezed and not too sweet please!

Coffee or tea?

Coffee! I like it hot, cold or any which way. 

Dine out or take away?

Dine out so someone else can clean up!

High heels, sneakers or flip flops?

How about Chanel cap-toe ballerina flats? Been coveting those for a long time now…

Physical Book or ebook?

Physical book for sure. 

Paperback or Hardcover?

Paperback for fiction but hardcover for poetry. 

Pen or pencil?

Pencil, because you can sharpen the point.  And erase. 

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad?

Mad Men.  Those clothes…!

Drama or comedy?

Drama.  I like the dark notes. 

Twilight or Hunger Games?

Not feeling either of these…

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick?

Lipstick, bright red and creamy. I won’t stir from the house without it. 

Facebook or Twiter?

Vive Facebook! Love the interactions. 

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

Plot the novel but be prepared for the detours…that’s what keeps it fresh and exciting. 

You Were Meant For Me

What do you do when you have to give up the person you love most?

Thirty-five-year-old Miranda is not an impulsive person. She’s been at Domestic Goddess magazine for eight years, she has great friends, and she’s finally moving on after a breakup. Having a baby isn’t even on her radar—until the day she discovers an abandoned newborn on the platform of a Brooklyn subway station. Rushing the little girl to the closest police station, Miranda hopes and prays she’ll be all right and that a loving family will step forward to take her.

Yet Miranda can’t seem to get the baby off her mind and keeps coming up with excuses to go check on her, until finally a family court judge asks whether she’d like to be the baby’s foster parent—maybe even adopt her. To her own surprise, Miranda jumps at the chance. But nothing could have prepared her for the ecstasy of new-mother love—or the heartbreak she faces when the baby’s father surfaces...
