When I “Fall into the World of Extraordinary” I want to…
…escape, be entertained, and feel as though there’s nothing else happening in the world. For that reason, when I write, I strive to give the reader the same experience whether it’s a roller coaster romance, hunky heroes, despicable villains, edge-of-your-seat suspense, or laugh-out-loud moments.
Name something on your bucket list you HAVE done and name something you HAVEN’T done yet.
I swam with sharks. Okay, they were nurse sharks in the Bahamas, but still, after we got out, the handlers said they could have crushed us to death. Notice they told us AFTER we were surrounded by over 100 sharks. Stupidly, I reached out to touch them like they were dogs. They were as rough as sandpaper.
Something I haven’t yet done that’s on my bucket list (and there are many items on that list!) is going whale watching in Alaska. I’d be afraid the whales would top over the boat but I’d chance it. After all, I’ve swum with sharks! 🙂
