5 Easy Questions with Wendy P. Miller

Every Wednesday, I ask a writer the same five easy questions. In an effort to support and promote fellow wordsmiths, I feature authors who write a variety of genres, from sweet inspirational to mainstream thrillers. The writers themselves may be aspiring, published, or best-selling--all have made an impact on my life.

Thank you for joining me in welcoming…

Wendy P. Miller!

I found Wendy's fabulous blog over two years ago, and we instantly connected, so much so that we and two other bloggers became critique partners. When I had the idea for a fun, weekly feature to promote authors, I begged my critique group to be my guinea pigs! Without further ado, here are Miss Wendy Miller's answers.



1. Beverage of choice?

Sweet tea in the day. For a night on the town I’ll go with a pomegranate martini and if I’m in the mood to bring on the fat, a thick chocolate shake.

2. Any pets?

Our old incontinent (but loved to pieces) Samoyed.

3. Dream vacation?

Mykonos, Greece

4. What are you listening to right now?

I’d like to say something more mood-inspiring, like an earthy jazz, but I can hear an episode of Wild Kratz in the other room and O.A.R. Crazy Game of Poker on Pandora.

5. What's for dinner?

Turkey meatballs, noodles with a pasta sauce I doctored up with fresh basil (love that smell) and mushrooms.

Wendy, I will join you for a chocolate shake in Mykonos, Greece anytime, sister. And your dinner activated my taste buds. Yum... Thank you so much for sharing, Wendy!

Wendy Paine Miller writes upmarket women’s fiction imbued with literary elements. She’s deliberate about exploring the richness and complexity of her characters. Her novels are interwoven with tension, gripping emotion and life as you know it. She loves writing stories infused with hope, stories spliced with colorful characters that inspire readers to see the world in a new light. Her greatest desire is to encourage readers to think anew by unlocking previous ways of viewing life and relationships. To learn more about Wendy, check out her blog, Thoughts that Move, and find her on Facebook, and Twitter.

Have a terrific Wednesday!
