Would You Rather... 
with Cara Sue Achterberg

Chips, chocolate or cheese?

Cheese, of course, provided there will be plenty of wine.

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw?

Is it terrible that I had to google Becky Bloomwood? I have to go with Bridget Jones, simply because I did read that book and I couldn’t resist the movie with Renee Zellweger and Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. Book was better, though.

Wine, beer or vodka?

Wine, wine, wine, wine, wine.

Camping or spa vacation?

I’m a nature girl. Love camping.

Water or mountains?

Water in the mountains would be the ideal.

Zombies or vampires?

The zombie thing has gotten too far out of hand. The eyes freak me out. I’ll have to go with vampires.

Dogs or cats?

For a very long time it was cats, but now I’ve gone overboard for dogs. (I’m currently fostering a momma dog and her nine – yes, nine – puppies.)

Coke or Pepsi?

Back in the day, I was a Coke girl, but now I have to say neither.

Coffee or tea?

Oh, tea! Love my tea. I can’t write without my tall mug of White Chocolate-Coconut Latte flavored green tea. I even grow my own mint for mint tea.

Dine out or take away?

If I’m going out to eat, I want to be waited on.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops?

Sneakers definitely. I fall down in heels and flip flops are no good going down hill. Besides that, I like to be ready to run.

Physical Book or ebook?

Physical book for sure. I like to write in my books.

Paperback or Hardcover?

Paper back – much lighter in the purse.

Pen or pencil?

Pen – can’t write fast enough with a pencil.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad?

Mad Men. John Hamm. Enough said.

Drama or comedy?

Drama. So many comedies these days have horrible humor – offensive or stupid or way too obvious.

Twilight or Hunger Games?

Twilight. I can’t stand the premise of Hunger Games. The idea of killing children horrifies me- even if it’s pretend.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick?

Lipstick – I feel naked without it.

Facebook or Twiter?

I used to love Facebook, but of late I’m really into twitter. Love connecting with people all over the world.

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

I’m a pantser all the way.

Girls' Weekend

Dani, Meg, and Charlotte have bonded over babies, barbeques, and backyards, but when they escape for a girls weekend away, they can't bring themselves to return to lives that don't seem to fit anymore.

Harried Dani can't explain why she feels so discontented until she meets a young gallery owner who inspires her to rediscover the art that once made her happy.

Dependable Meg faces up to a grief that threatens to swallow her whole and confronts a marriage built on expectations.

Flamboyant Charlotte, frustrated with her stagnated life and marriage, pursues a playboy Irish singer and beachside business opportunities.

All three of these women thought they would be different. None of them thought they'd be facing down forty and still wondering when life starts. What they do when they realize where they're headed is both inspiring and wildly entertaining.
