[20 Questions] YM ZACHERY

Back again with an all new set of questions with an Author that has quickly become a dear friend of mine.
I Love her to absolute pieces, My Little Pretties, and I know you will too.
 She is always on Facebook hanging out with her fans, and her live videos are always a highlight to any day. 
I don't want to give it all away in the introduction, so I am going to keep it short and sweet:



Are you a morning person, or a night person?
I am a night time person. I hate mornings, I find it so hard to get out of bed. It takes me a long time to wake up. However, I do my best work early in the mornings, because at night I just want to relax and read or watch television.
Why did you choose to write for the genre that you do?
The reason that I chose to write in the genre that I do is because I am a romantic at heart. I love the idea that there is that perfect someone out there for everyone. However, I also love history and therefore, this idea that the perfect love can reside across time arose in me. I hope to inspire others to love history as much I do through these books, while adding that touch of romanticism that I love.
What is your favourite season or holiday?
My favourite season is winter. I love being able to snuggle up under blankets and cuddle, or sit on the back patio rugged up drinking hot tea. I love snow, I think there is nothing more magical than snow. I love watching it fall and blanketing the world around in me a sheet of pure magic. I feel that snow and winter make everything seem more magical, again my romanticism plays a part in my love for this season. My favorite holiday is Christmas, which works in well for the winter thing if you are in the Northern Hemisphere lol. Unfortunately, the two differ here in Australia greatly.
If you could go anywhere in the universe, where would you go, and why?
I would go and find out if there was another plant like ours. I would go beyond our galaxy. I am of the belief that out there somewhere in another galaxy a plant just like earth was in the right part of the galaxy to have the same set of circumstances to allow life to blossom. And no I am not talking about little green men.
What are three things that you would put on your Bucket List?
I actually do have a bucket list and I am proud to say that I have marked off it. The three major things that I still have to do on my Bucket List are:
Do an archaeological dig in Greece.
Move to Canada
Go to Antarctica
What is the wallpaper on your cellphone?
The wall paper on my cellphone is a picture of snowy mountains on a starry night. It calms me every time I look at my phone. I have often had photos of my family on there, but I have them on my closed screen now and this on my wallpaper.
What are three things that you always keep handy at all times?
Epipen Cellphone Drink of water.
What inspires you, or where do you look for inspiration?
Everything that occurs in my life inspires me, from the people who surround me, to my passions and loves for things such as history, seasons, travel destination, desires and finally my children. They inspire me every day to be a better person, to show them that there is nothing you can’t do in life when you remove the barrier that you create in your own mind. I also look for inspiration in the world around me. I look for it in the past, present and what may happen. I take the places I know or the places I want to know and meld them in with the characters and places of my life.
What is one thing that most people do not know about you?
That I hate looking people in the eyes for long periods of time. I know that you are meant to and that is considered rude if you don’t, but it makes me really uncomfortable when I have to sit there and look people in the eyes. I don’t know why it just always has. I am in no way a rude person and I love interacting with people, it is just something that I cannot handle. I can’t even do it with my children for long. I can look at you make eye contact but that is it, I can’t do staring contests at all.
What is your most favourite time in History?
As a history major and teacher, I have many different periods of time that I love. But I would have to say that my absolute favourites are that of Ancient Greece (especially Sparta), early to 12th century Scotland and Vikings. I love every aspect of these eras and if I had the chance to travel back in time to spend even one day in these periods to learn more about how they lived I would.
What is the most attractive, and the first thing you notice, about the opposite sex?
Eyes, ha-ha I know I know, Ironic hey. The eyes are the first thing I notice and the most attractive thing I find on a person, especially blue eyes. I am still to this day absolutely mesmerised by my partner’s blue eyes. Then it is their arse…. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Who is the first person you call when you are having a bad day?
My best friend. She is the first person I call when having a bad day, she allows me to vent without uttering a word of protest, she then agrees with me on whatever had pissed me off or whoever has pissed me off and that allows me to calm down. I do the same for her, it doesn’t matter the time or whether we have seen each other in recently I just know that no matter what I can always count on her to walk me off that ledge.
What kind of drunk person do you turn into when you drink?
Hahah I am a happy drunk, I love everybody and I just want them to know it. I become very sentimental when drunk.
If you could be any colour in the big box of crayons, which one would you be?
I would the rainbow crayon. Why you ask. Because I hate monotony, I could not live being one colour day in and day out. I have to change something, whether it is the food I eat, the colour of my hair or what type of music I feel like listening too, so by being the rainbow I can choose whichever colour I wanted, depending on my moods.
What is your favourite 90’s throwback jam?
Right type of mood by the Herbie, or basically any of the boy bands. Nsync, Backstreet boys and even East 17. If I could dance to it I loved it. ๐Ÿ˜Š
What do you put on your pizza?
My favourite pizza of all time is what I like to call the Kabab Pizza and basically it was made with all the ingredients you would find on the kabab; the salads were added after cooking so they were fresh and then topped with a garlic sauce. It was amazing, we had it when we were in Sweden. However, I also love Pepperoni, cheese, chicken, lamb, roast vegies, sour cream, capsicum, sweet chilli sauce, bรฉchamel sauce.
What is your favourite ice cream flavour?
It is called Love Potion 31, you can only get it at Baskin and Robins in Australia, I think. It is a vanilla ice-cream, mixed with strawberry ice cream and strawberry sauce, with little chunks of chocolate and chocolate harts filled with strawberry coulis, it is so yummy.
Who would win in a fight: Batman or Spiderman?
Batman of course, hands down.
Do you believe in Ghosts?
I believe in Ghosts yes. They are just something science has yet to explain.
What is one food, or drink, that you could NEVER give up?
Roast of any kind. It is my all-time favourite meal. Dammit now I want Roast.
What was the hardest scene, or book, for you to write?
At first I thought the death scene in Highlander at Heart was the hardest and most emotional scene I had to write. But then I wrote my bio and there is one section of that book that I had to leave and come back to several times just because of the emotion that resurfaced.
Do you sing in the shower?
Sometimes. It depends on my mood and if I am alone in the house or not. I tend to write scenes in my head more so then sing.
Do any of the scenes in your books come from personal experience, or actually events, and are you willing to tell us about one?
There are a couple of scenes actually that happen in my book that are form personal experience, they are not very exciting but they are there. The first in Highlander at Heart with Ceana Struggling with referencing on an assignment lol. Yes, I know boring. But this is what I had been like many times over throughout my uni career. The second one is in Her Highland Hero when Mel is describing a camping trip that she went on. That was actually a camping trip I did and yes there were over two thousand people at this place with only six showers for each sex and six toilets. Let me tell you I have not been back since lol.
If you could be on any reality TV show, which one would you choose?
The Amazing Race. This has always been a dream of mine to go on this show. I would love nothing better than to travel the world with my partner or best friend while experiencing new things. I love this show.
Are you a Clutter Queen or a Neat Freak?
Clutter Queen lol. My husband on the other hand is a neat freak, so it is fun in our house. But one thing I have come to learn over the years is that in every partnership there is usually one of each.
Would You Rather…
Be able to teleport wherever you want, or be able to read minds whenever you want?

Teleport wherever I want. How cool would it be, and you know straight away where I am going ๐Ÿ˜‰
Know the history of everything you touch, or be able to speak to animals?
This is hard because It would be so cool to speak to animals, but I would really love to know the history of everything I touch. I would just have to be careful what I touched lol.
Be permanently transported 200 years into the future, or be permanently transported 200 years into the past?
The past hands down.
