Covered up with Maureen Bonatch

Back to school favorite: pens or notebooks?

This is a tough question, but I’ll have to go with pens. Only because in desperation I will use anything to jot down my thoughts, but if I’m without a pen I’m helpless. With my favorite writer’s block breaker being that of riding on the back of the hubby’s motorcycle, I’m constantly coming across scribbling on post-it notes, napkins and the back of expired coupons. Although I can recall an instance when I was without either, but luckily remembered I had my phone to email the story idea to myself before I was found trying to use some primitive method of sticks and leaves to jot down the chattering of one of my characters.

Hiking or jumping into a pile of leaves?

Hiking, because it’s a nice way to clear my head and take in the beauty of nature and let my mind wander, and that’s when and where many of my story ideas originate. Stifling a shiver as I walked through the woods with the huge trees closing in and crowding the paths, helped give birth to the setting of my upcoming release, Destiny Calling.

Halloween or Thanksgiving?

I’ll go with Halloween, because if you allow it, you have an excuse to be a kid again. My hubby and I often dress up to hand out the candy to the kids, sometimes having more fun with it than our own children. It’s a time to take your imagination and let it run free. Halloween also plays a role in the setting of my novella, That Magic Moment.

Hot buttered rum or hot chocolate?

As a hard, core chocoholic I’ll have to go with hot chocolate. There’s just something so indulgent about curling up with a good book while infusing liquid chocolate that warms me from the inside out, and if I’m feeling a little decadent, I can add a dollop of whip cream on top.

Who’s book (besides one of yours) are you most looking forward to reading?

As a woman with an undetermined number of books on her kindle due to a near obsession with downloading books, this may be the most challenging question of them all. It would be almost impossible to choose just one (that’s like asking to pick the favorite of my children) but my favorites are always the ones with a paranormal flair. I’m always up for recommendations of a good story to add to my kindle.

Awesome post. I personally, would jump in the pile of leaves and then sit back with my aunt's hot buttered rum. Hmmm!
