Basics: Name/Age/Where you live?
Heather Rosdol/Old/Outside of Charlotte, North Carolina
What do you do for a living and do you like it? (or if you’re in school what are you studying to be?)
I am a stay at home mom right now. It doesn't pay well, but yes, I do love it! My job varies in description and has prepared me for a wide variety of jobs outside the home when the time is right. My sons are 12 and 15.
What are your hobbies/ what do you do for fun?
I read and write and do some crafting. I take tons of pictures and used to make scrapbooks, but I don't take the time anymore.
How did you discover the Shade series?
I really don't remember! Shameful, I know. I'm pretty sure I got the first book when it came out and read it, got all blubbery and fell for the story.
Who is your favorite Shade series character? And why?
Zachary because he was so patient with Aura. He stood by her after that incredibly embarrassing court room confession. He let her mourn. He was always so understanding. Because of that accent! And because of Shine!
The entire last book did it for me. And if you haven't read the letter he wrote to Aura known as "The River Scene"
on Jeri's page, well, you wouldn't ask why!
Top 5 book boyfriends?
Zachary, of course.
Peregrine from Under The Never Sky
Bones from the Night Huntress Series (not YA)
Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and BoneGriffin from Girl in the Steel Corset/Clockwork Collar
About a Boy with Hugh Grant
What kinds of music do you like (or listen to most)?
I don't have a most. I have very eclectic tastes. Some country, some hard rock, alternative, whatever they call today's music. Some favorites are Kenny Chesney, Muse, Pink, Rhianna, Niki Minaj, Katie Perry, Pink Mountains, Sara Bareilles, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, Kate Nash, Florence and the Machine......
If you could travel one place in the world, where would it be?
PARIS and then I'd settle down to live in the Highlands of Scotland!
Favorite Team Kilt memory?
The come from behind almost upset last year but the #2 win of Zachary from number nowhere! Every time he won I celebrated. My husband thought I was a loon!
