[20 Questions] GIA RILEY @AuthorGiaRiley

Gia Riley has been in love with writing romance since high school when she took her very first creative writing class. From the small but mighty state of Delaware, she’s a country girl at heart, traveling back to her roots in Pennsylvania as often as she can.
She’d rather pick truth than dare, bake than cook, and will always choose coffee over tea.
Just like life, her stories always have a mixture of heart and humor.
You can connect with Gia on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. She also has a reader group, Gia Riley’s Books, on Facebook. Stop by anytime, she loves hearing from readers!

Gia just had her book, Stay Awhile, release on March 16th. And she is currently collaborating with fellow Unrated Author, Marni Mann, to bring us even more awesome and amazing stories to read!
So since I love you all, My Little Pretties, I give to you:
Twenty Q's with Gia Riley!
Enjoy...

Where did you grow up?
Pennsylvania.
Are you a morning person, or a night person?
 I’m more of a 6pm person. Haha.
Why did you choose to write for the genre that you do?
I’m a lover of all things romance. To me, love’s the greatest force that exists. It can bring people together, tear them apart, and heal. Even if we aren’t seeking it, we radiate it.
What are three things that you would put on your Bucket List?
See Europe and Australia. Get a tattoo.
What are three things that you always keep handy at all times?
 Hand sanitizer, tissues, and my phone.
What inspires you, or where do you look for inspiration?
The world around me. I’m a people watcher. Life watcher. You can learn a lot just by listening.
What is the weirdest thing that you have ever googled?
 I’m a writer. The things I’ve googled are both hilarious and frightening.
What is your most favorite time in History?
The 1940’s. I’m very connected to this period in time for some reason.

Chocolate peanut butter!
What is your biggest baddest guilty pleasure?
Reality TV and donuts.
Do you believe in Ghosts? Aliens? Big Foot?
I believe in ghosts. And I’ve had an experience in the past.
If only one of your books could be turned into a movie, which one would you choose and why?
I would choose Stay Awhile or Drowning. I think the plots are unique and would capture a wide audience.
What is one food, or drink, that you could NEVER give up?
Chocolate and coffee. They’re pretty much life.
If you could be on any reality TV show, which one would you choose?
The Voice.
Are you a Clutter Queen or a Neat Freak?
 A neat freak! Clutter makes me itch.
If you were forced to open a bakery, what would you name it?
Piece of Cake.
If there was a movie release about your life, who would you want to play you, who would play your love interest, and what type of movie would it be?
 I would want Melissa McCarthy to play me because there’d definitely be a lot of laughs in the movie. 

Would you Rather...
See but never smell, or hear but never taste?
See and hear.
Have the hiccups for the rest of your life, or always feel like you got to sneeze but never actually do it?
Have to sneeze. The hiccups get painful.
Always have to speak and write what’s on your mind, or never be able to speak or write again?
 Always have to speak and write.
Be forever itchy, or be forever sticky?
 Itchy. I can’t stand being sticky.

 Read minds.
