2-If you had to dedicate your book to a thing (and not a person), what would that thing be?

3-What’s an interesting tidbit readers might not know about you or your books?
I won an amazing star-studded trip to SeaWorld by creating a prize-winning birthday card and then singing its greeting on the radio. While there I got to pat killer whale Shamu at her 1st birthday party--so much fun!
4-If you could have any career, what would it be? (And it can’t be “author”.)
Making music with a band or orchestra might be fun…
5-Do you prefer the sunrise or the sunset?
Sunrise--the beginning of a brand new day.
