Tuesdays with Taryn
What book(s) most influenced you as a writer?
I've loved reading for so long that it's difficult to narrow this one down. The Large and Growly Bear by Gertrude Crampton and illustrated by J.P. Miller, Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery and Dancing at Midnight by Julia Quinn.
What book do you read over and over again?
Fireflies in December by Jennifer Erin Valent and more recently Divergent by Veronica Roth. I admit to re-reading the Harry Potter series as well.
1) Movie- I can't choose just one! Apollo 13, The Princess and the Warrior, Penelope, Harvey, Rio Bravo and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
2) Music- Dean Martin, Sammy Hagar, KT Tunstall
3) Decadent Dessert- Chocolate Silk Pie
What’s the most interesting or bizarre bit of trivia you’ve learned from researching for a novel? Interesting: there's a difference between being in a Coma and being in a Vegetative State. Bizarre: there is a Van Halen Encyclopedia online. I know, there are more bizarre things out there, but this really blew me away.
