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… Jessica R. Patch!!
Let's get to it!
1. Beverage of choice?
Coffee with Belgium chocolate toffee cream or a diet A&W root beer
2. Any pets?
Besides my husband and kids? :) I have an irksome dog. She's a blond Schnorkie--half Yorkshire/half Schnauzer. I'll sell her to the lowest bidder!
3. Dream vacation?
Me and hubby in Scotland, staying in an old drafty castle--rumored to be haunted. I want a large window to gaze out into the fog so I can spot old Nessie. Bagpipes are a must. Kilts are optional. Then on to Ireland where we can eat at real Irish pubs built into cliffs and I'll dare my husband to take up clogging for a good laugh. Before we come home, we'll have kissed the Blarney stone and chased a rainbow to see if there really was a pot of gold at the end of it. If so, I'll share some with ya'll.
4. What are you listening to right now?
Mads Langer Fact Fiction--I'm writing a sweet romantic scene to it!
5. What's for dinner?
Chicken nachos drowned in Pancho's white cheese dip, refried beans, and french fries for my son (picky eater).
I'll bid on your Shnorkie--how adorable! I'll bet she's a little cutie! Your dream vacay sounds fantastic. If you want to ditch the hubs after a few weeks and head south to England, I'll join you! Okay, your dinner is about 495,000 times better than mine tonight. I might have to pretend I wasn't cooking and run to Taco Bell. Nachos...yum! Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Jessica!!
Jessica R. Patch writes contemporary suspenseful romances. Using witty humor and unusual twists, she brings flawed, but redeemable, characters through trials and triumphs while drawing out biblical truths.
Jessica attended Central Bible College, where she met her husband, and now resides in the mid-south. She has devoted her time to her local church having served as a Biblical Studies teacher, Women’s Ministry leader, Regional Women’s Representative, and volunteer co-pastor with her husband of the Young Adult Ministry. She’s written Young Adult studies, labeled “Patch Packets” and many of her articles are published in her church’s newsletter The Current. Before she decided to write full time, she worked as an Academy Director for an early childhood education center. She belongs to the CWG, ACFW, and BCW (a local chapter of American Christian Writers).
When she isn’t crashing into police cruisers, getting stuck on her fridge or sneaking off to movies with her husband, she enjoys embarrassing her tween daughter by wearing pajamas to take her to school and play-sword fighting with her six-year old son.
You can learn more about Jessica at her blog, be friends with her on Facebook, and follow her on Twitter!
So...it's June 1st!! Do you have big plans for the summer?
Have a fabulous Wednesday!!
