Then again, I love the fashions of the forties. I wish men still wore fedoras.
Please share with us about your favorite book and fictional crush to date?
Favorite fictional crush would probably be David from Rachel Caine’s WEATHER WARDEN series. I’m a huge “nice guy” fan.
If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be / Why?
Do cartoons count? If so, I would say Bugs Bunny. He always outsmarts his enemies and gets them to beat themselves rather than having to beat them up directly.
If we’re talking strictly books (I would read a Bugs Bunny novel in a heartbeat, by the way), I think I would be the kid from the BLACK STALLION books. When I read those in middle school, I wanted desperately to be a jockey, but had to give that up because I was too tall. (Anyone who knows me is probably scratching their heads, thinking, “But Jeri, you’re incredibly short.” Yep, but still not short enough to be a jockey.)
Ooh! Anne Hathaway. She could really pull of my sullen early twenties attitude. Plus, she has the perfect eyebrows.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
Ten Things I Hate About Me. Because I’m always picking on myself.
How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
Disorganized. Funny. Free. Fretful. Happy. Easily distracted.
**Is there any additional info you would like to share with your readers about what’s next for you and your books?**
Right now I’m writing the sequel to SHADE, called SHIFT, which will be out in May 2011. I also just finished page proofs on the third book in my adult vampire series, BRING ON THE NIGHT, which comes out in August. I can’t wait to see what fans of the series think of this installment!
Thanks Jeri for stopping by!
