Featured Author - Sandra Cox! - Part 2

MLM: One of the greatest things about the Internet is that we can connect with writers of all kinds from all over the globe so we want to know: a.)What area of the country/world are you from?

SANDRA: I live in sunny North Carolina

b.)What are the average temperatures of your area?

SANDRA: Today its gorgeous out in the high seventies.

c.)What type of clothing would most residents be wearing today?

SANDRA: Definitely shorts.

d.)What tips do you have for people to “survive” the weather where you are?

SANDRA: North Carolina is one of those places you go to escape survival weather:)

e.)What would you say is the neatest thing about where you live?

SANDRA: We’re about an hour and a half from the mountains and about four hours from the ocean. Perfect.

MLM: Are your taxes done yet, or do you procrastinate until the last day?

SANDRA: We got ours done in February. Yay us!

MLM: Do you do your taxes yourself or do you have someone do them for you?

SANDRA: Definitely have someone do them.

MLM: What would you say is the hardest part of your taxes?

SANDRA: Getting everything organized to turn in. I go through the year sticking tax info in envelopes then I have to put it in some semblance of order.

MLM: In recent years, there has been a push to bring back the family dinner. What are your views on family dinners? Do you find them beneficial? Why or why not?

SANDRA: I think they’re great as long as someone else is cooking :)

MLM: With families having such busy schedules, many take time out to schedule a “game” night. Is this something that you do, have done or might do in the future? Why or why not?

SANDRA: We never had a game night but the family always went out together on Friday nights. And now that the kids are gone the hubby and I carry on the tradition.

MLM: Say you’re at a cabin in the mountains, it’s not exactly warm out and you had the option of where you wanted your hot tub to be. Would you have the hot tub inside or outside the cabin? Why? What is it that you like specifically about it being inside or outside the best?

SANDRA: I’d want it inside near a fireplace and window where I could watch it snow. It’s nice to be cozy inside when it’s cold outside.

MLM: If you could go anywhere in the world for the perfect date, where would you choose to go? Why this destination over others? What’s its connection to you? What would that perfect date entail? When during the year would you take this perfect date? Who would your date be?

SANDRA: Seattle in the spring. I’ve never been there and I’ve always wanted to go, plus maybe I’d run into Edward Cullen :). Since I’ve been married for several years, I’d better take the hubby. *grin*

MLM: Thank you for joining us today! Please be sure and check back for Part 3 of our feature with SANDRA!

Featured Author - Sandra Cox! - Part 1

I am a multi-published author and genre hop in my writing. I write anything from paranormal romance to metaphysical nonfiction. My husband and I live in the south where I am involved in a local rescue.

When I lost my cat of twelve years to cancer, I channeled my writing into a fantasy series about where cats go when they die. I created the world of Catarau, a place where they could live forever, with no disease, no hunger, no terror, but where they could use one of their nine lives to come back to earth to help a loved one.

(Book 1 in the Cats of Catarau series)
is now available on Smashwords!

I write about cats in my Sunday column at Night Writers:
