...if you haven't done so already.

Where did you grow up? 
Bronx, New York
Are you a morning person, or a night person? 
Why did you choose to write for the genre that you do? 
I love a good romance, with real characters. Not that I don’t love to read about billionaires or rockstars, but I like writing typical guys and showing how amazing they can be.
What is your favorite season or holiday? 
My birthday haha. My friends and family kid that I treat it like a holiday because it’s my favorite day of the year.
If you could go anywhere in the universe, where would you go, and why?
 If I had to choose, Italy. I’d love to see where my family came from and from what I hear it’s a gorgeous place to go.
What is the wallpaper on your cellphone? 
I have two, one of my husband and son on my lock screen, Taylor Kinney on my home screen (he was my Nick muse and it sparked an obsession)
What are three things that you always keep handy at all times? 
My cell phone, baby hair clips to put the front of my hair back, and lipstick.
What inspires you, or where do you look for inspiration? 
The people I know always inspire me. There are pieces of them in all the characters that I write.
What is the weirdest thing that you have ever googled?
 As a romance writer there is a lot…I think vaginal steaming since I read it in a book and thought for sure it was made up.
What is one piece of advice that you would give to future generations? To the opposite sex? 
Be kind. Treat others like you would want to be treated. It’s simple but the most important.
What is your most favorite time in History? 
I’d love to go back to the 80s. I was a kid and didn’t get to fully appreciate it.
What is the most attractive, and the first thing you notice, about the opposite sex? 
I look for nice shoulders and forearms. I guess I’m a little weird. But the most attractive thing about a guy is his attitude. A nice guy with a great sense of humor is the sexiest thing in the world.
Who is the first person you call when you are having a bad day? 
My mom.
What kind of drunk person do you turn into when you drink? 
Briefly, I’m a funny, affectionate person who likes to curse a lot. Then I fall asleep. Small window.
What was your worst autocorrect situation? 
Zumba to Zimbawe, and I wish my phone would realize I don’t say duck all the time.

What is your favorite 90’s throwback jam? 
Maria by TKA, its freestyle so not sure it will resonate, but that song brings back a ton of memories.
What do you put on your pizza? 
Cheese and that’s it usually.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Do you eat your feelings, or starve them? 
I eat them big time.
What is your biggest baddest guilty pleasure? 
Oreos, especially when writing
Who would win in a fight: Batman or Spiderman? 
Batman. No one beats Batman.
Do you believe in Ghosts? Aliens? Big Foot? 
All of the above
If only one of your books could be turned into a movie, which one would you choose and why? 
Only You, no doubt. I’d love to bring worldwide attention to Lupus, and there were so many different love stories in it.
Who is your favorite author, and/or what is your favorite book? 
Mia Sheridan. She’s a brilliant writer and a class act.
Do you ever google yourself? 
Nope, too scared to. Not that I have such an interesting life but you never know what you’ll find.
Do you ever hide secrets in your books that only a few people would find? 
YES, all kinds of Easter Eggs, especially numbers. 23 is Don Mattingly’s number, my husband’s favorite Yankee of all time, and a few of my books have 23 in them. Owen and Nick have my birthday (January 11)

Do any of the scenes in your books come from personal experience, or actually events, and are you willing to tell us about one?
 I have lupus, so writing Only You was probably the most difficult undertaking I’ve ever had to do. Everything that happened to Paige happened to me. At a recent signing, a reader with lupus thanked me for writing Only You. What writers do is a privilege, and we should never forget that.

Are you a Clutter Queen or a Neat Freak? 
Clutter Queen no doubt. I’m the Oscar to my husband’s Felix in Odd Couple terms.
What is your biggest pet peeve? 
Mean people. No reason for it.
