Would You Rather... 
with Collette Yvonne

Chips, chocolate or cheese?

Chocolate. In a big splashy fountain, if at all possible. 

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw?

1. Bridget Jones (the book not the movie) 2. Carrie Bradshaw (the TV series, def not the movie)

Wine, beer or vodka?

You ask such hard questions.

Camping or spa vacation?

I’ll take the lavender scented bubble bath, the chocolate on my pillow and the hot stone massage please.

Water or mountains?

Just float me over to the Tiki Bar for another round.

Zombies or vampires?

Let’s give the zombies pointy stakes so they can kill all the vampires and then let’s put all the stupid zombies on a broken cruise ship and tow them out to sea. 

Dogs or cats?

My dog Marley is the most adorable dog on the planet.

Coke or Pepsi?


Coffee or tea?

Bailey’s Irish Cream.

Dine out or take away?

Table for two please.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops?

Flip flops. Cute ones with sequins or colored beads.

Physical Book or ebook?

I love me some physical books. They never need recharging and I can write in the margins and fold over the pages.

Paperback or Hardcover?

Hardcover, if it’s a keeper. Paperback for the beach.

Pen or pencil?

The Pilot Hi-Tecpoint rolling ball pen. The kind with the see-through ink barrel. Black. Fine tip, NOT extra fine. They are smooth talkers, those pens. Can’t live without them. I order them by the dozen.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad?

The Lady Dowager Violet Crawley wins the vote at my house.

Drama or comedy?

Please make me laugh like Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara can. OMG, I can hardly wait for season 2 of Schitt’s Creek. Early 2016 is just so far away.

Twilight or Hunger Games?

Hunger Games. (Or did you mean Lautner or Pattinson? Lautner please.)

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick?


Facebook or Twiter?


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

I’m a pantser all the way. I have no idea how it’s all going to turn out until the end. And then I might decide to change things around. Eventually I have no idea what any of my characters are up to. Probably plotting against me.

The Perils of Pauline

Life seems "picture perfect" for Army veteran Pauline Parril--a solid career, a loving (though slightly absent) husband, two adorable young children.  Perfect that is, until the usual Friday meeting at the office ends with a termination letter.
As Pauline navigates the difficulties of unemployment, she finds the handles of her world turning upside down. Her estranged daughter, Serenity, returns home with shocking secrets.  Her husband, Donald, is not at all who she knows him to be, and a handsome stranger opens her eyes to the complex worlds of poetry and temptation.
In this uproarious female comedy of just how one event can change the course of...well everything. The Perils of Pauline follows an intrepid every-woman as she marches through the pressures of building the "perfect life," finding there's actually more to discover about yourself than you dreamed, and constantly answering the scariest question of adulthood: "What now?"
