CAROLINE FARDIG was born and raised in a small town in Indiana. Her working career has been rather eclectic thus far, with occupations including schoolteacher, church organist, insurance agent, funeral parlor associate, and stay-at-home mom. Finally realizing that she wants to be a writer when she grows up, Caroline is currently hard at work churning out more novels in the LIZZIE HART MYSTERIES series. She still lives in that same small town with an understanding husband, two sweet kids, two energetic dogs, and one malevolent cat.
Connect with Caroline:
Would You Rather with Caroline Fardig
Chips, chocolate or cheese?
Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw?
Becky Bloomwood. I totally get her.
Wine, beer or vodka?
Camping or spa vacation?
Definitely a spa vacation. I live in the woods, and sometimes the bugs and critters try to get in my house. I can’t imagine willingly sleeping on their turf.
Water or mountains?
Water. Hilton Head, SC is my favorite spot. Hawaii’s not bad either.
Zombies or vampires?
Zombies, unless you’re talking old school vampires like “The Lost Boys” and “Buffy”. I don’t go for sparkly, angsty vampires.
Dogs or cats?
Dogs! My cat is the devil.
Coke or Pepsi?
Coke. Although I’ve for the most part given up soft drinks, Coke is still my weakness.
Coffee or tea?
Coffee. I make my own “White Monkey” latte every morning.
Dine out or take away?
Dine out. I HATE doing dishes.
High heels, sneakers or flip flops?
Definitely flip flops. Even when it’s too cold for flip flops.
Physical Book or ebook?
I’m still on the fence, but I’m leaning toward ebook because it’s so handy to be able to read on your phone.
Paperback or Hardcover?
Pen or pencil?
Pen, but really I’d rather type most things.
Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad?
You know, I don’t watch any of those shows, but I’d probably be most likely to watch “Breaking Bad”. It’s the closest to my favorite—cop shows!
Drama or comedy?
Always comedy, preferably R-rated so it’s actually funny. If it’s an Oscar flick, I can pretty much guarantee that I won’t like it. My sense of humor never matured after junior high.
Twilight or Hunger Games?
Hunger Games. I was rooting for the bad vampires in Twilight.
Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick?
Sugar Apple lipstick from Aveda, but mainly because it’s attached to the case holding my foundation, therefore easy to find in my gigantic purse. Otherwise, I like sparkly, flavored lipgloss.
Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook. Most of my friends are too old for Twitter.
Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants?
I write a much better story when I plot it out, but most of the time I can’t wait to get to writing, so I start flying. The story never ends up where I plot it, anyway.
That Old Black Magic
Lizzie Hart is back—snooping, lying, and chick-fighting to uncover the truth, hoping not to break any hearts along the way…especially her own.
That Old Black Magic…will it put Lizzie under its spell?
Lizzie Hart hoped her first day back at work after nearly being killed would be uneventful. No such luck. Before she can finish her morning coffee, Lizzie and her co-workers find a dead body on the rooftop of their office. Media vultures that they are, the Liberty Chronicle employees are psyched to have first-hand news to report. Lizzie, however, is devastated when she realizes that the victim is her ex-boyfriend’s brother.
When evidence begins piling up against one of Lizzie’s friends, she reluctantly dons her detective hat once again, determined to find the real killer. She’s not thrilled about chasing another psychopath around, but she’ll do anything for a friend. Lizzie’s love life is rapidly becoming a hot mess, too. Her latest attempt at sleuthing isn’t leaving much time for her budding romance with town hunk Blake Morgan. Add that to the fact she’s hiding a secret so big it could rock the very core of their relationship, it’s no wonder that Lizzie’s in a tizzy.
Poor Lizzie ends up juggling a murder investigation, a wacky Wiccan coven, and two men vying for her attention—all while nursing injuries left over from the last time she decided to play Nancy Drew. It’s a good thing she always has a few tricks up her sleeve.
