It's Friday! That means it's time for Five on Friday--(no matter that it's Friday the thirteenth--we scoff at triskaidekaphobia!). Today, we're posing our five random questions to Linda Kage, author of the upcoming Climbing Rose release The Stillburrow Crush.
Blurb: Sixteen year old, Carrie Paxton, isn't the most popular girl in her small town of Stillburrow. But that's never concerned her before. Her life revolves around her writing, and she loves her job as the student editor of the school paper. But when she gets assigned to interview the football team's beloved quarterback, she takes one look into Luke Carter's blue eyes and is a goner. Suddenly, she doesn't like her lowly rank so much. Then her dreamy, popular crush surprises her when he starts to act as if he likes her in return. But there's no way Luke Carter could possibly ever like a nobody like Carrie Paxton. Is there?Sounds wonderful, right? And now our five questions for Linda:
1. Have you ever met a celebrity? Who and where?
The most famous person I ever met was Julie Garwood. She's in my writing group, actually. How awesome is that?
2. Do you have any collections? What?
Ever read Hansel and Gretel? Well, I collect little children and keep them in my basement... I'm kidding. I don't have a basement (or a children collection either!!). But I do honestly collect Cuckoo Clocks.
3. Name four things you always have with you.
Let's see, I always have my purse, cell phone, underwear (cause, you know... I'm wearing them), and my baby. But that last is only till February. It's going to suck after she's born and has to go to a babysitter. I'll miss her, PLUS people will think I'm talking to myself, which I probably will be, but I won't be able to say I'm talking to my baby anymore. Sigh.
4. What country do you most want to visit? Why?
Germany. That's where most of my ancestors are from, plus that's where Cuckoo Clocks are made.
5. Have you ever crawled through a window?
I had to crawl through my car window because it was raining so much this one time, water was over the road. I drove through it and got swept off into this really swift current. Before I knew it, water started to fill the interior and reached my chin... Okay, all right, confession time. I've never crawled through any kind of window that I remember. But that would've been a cool story, huh?
LOL, Linda, maybe you should be glad that flooding story isn't real! Thanks so much for answering our questions! The Stillburrow Crush comes out next February and I can't wait for everyone to read it.
