One of my favourite people is Nova Ren Suma and she very kindly answered five quick questions for me for the Friday Five post. If you’re not familiar with her, get familiar!

What book do you love so much you wish you’d written it? TELL THE WOLVES I’M HOME by Carol Rifka Brunt
Are you more the off-the-grid, stay in a treehouse kind of vacationer, or five star hotel with spa treatments available? I have no idea. I haven’t been on vacation in more than 10 years.
Do you have a quotation you love or a motto you live by? What is it? What if?
What’s your writing space like (or your dream writing space)? I dream every day of having my own room to write in.
Is your writing fueled by salt or sugar? Sugar.
Thanks for stopping by, Nova! And congratulations on all your past successes and “cheers” to all your future ones!
