Hi Chicklets and Roosters! It’s the Gluten-Free Girl back again with another author interview. This week, we have the lovely Lynn Cahoon. She’s being a good sport and answering a few of my James Lipton inspired questions.
I love fish, seafood, anything with creamy goodness.
And potatoes. Potato Chips, mashed potatoes, French fries, and, OMG, potato soup. We just had grilled potato strips with garlic butter. They were amazing.
Brownies are my favorite dessert.
And I’m learning to love salads.
2. What’s your least favorite food?
Beans. And liver. (Yep, once again, I have to agree with you. You’ll never find liver on my gluten-free menu–no matter how healthy it is!)
3. What turns you on?
Love, taking care of each other, and water. I love sitting on the beach watching the waves come in and leave. The power of the ocean seems to feed my soul. (Too true. There’s nothing as peaceful as listening to waves crash against the shore.)
4. What turns you off?
Meanness in people. Hatred. I feel like a Miss Universe contestant, but why can’t we all just get along? (I couldn’t agree with you–or Miss Universe–more.) 🙂
5. What profession would you like to attempt?
I’d like to be a lawyer.
6. Vampire, werewolf, zombie, knight or ghost?
Ghost. I love haunted tales.
7. What three books influenced you the most in life?
8. What first inspired you to write?
I knew I wanted to write, but thought I’d get to it someday. When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2007, I realized that for some people, someday never came. (Wow, you’re an inspiration to others just with those two sentences.)
9. What sub-genres do you write?
Contemporary romance, Paranormal contemporary romance, middle grade time travel, and cozy mystery. (Sounds like you’ve got a full plate just writing. That’s incredible.)
10. What’s your writing schedule like?
My goal is to write 1K a day, 2k on weekends. Mostly that happens at night, after the day job.
11. Where will you be (conferences or book signings) in the next six months?
The only thing I have planned besides my chapter meetings is a time management workshop in Memphis June 1st. I’m looking forward to my time with the Memphis chapter.
12. Where can people find you on the internet?
13. What’s your latest book about?
Lauren is headed back to school, this time not as a fun loving coed but to achieve her dream of turning the family farm into Idaho’s first Heritage Seed Center. Selling organic produce at the local farmers market, she meets Miles. After an unexpected act of kindness toward her daughter, Lauren agrees to one date.
As a VP and heir apparent to HN Seeds, the family business, Miles unknowingly holds the future of Lauren’s farm in his hands. Lauren’s looking for anything but a romance. She’s got too much on her plate to risk the distraction. But he plays the one card Lauren can’t resist, family. Miles needs Lauren and her daughter to feel at home. And Lauren needs Miles and his large extended family more than she knows. But can she forgive the one betrayal that would ruin all of her plans for the future?
