Alright, before we get started, let me tell you a little bit about Susie. Her official bio:
The rules are simple. I ask Susie some random questions. She replies and then I give my answers. Each winning answer is worth one point and I get to decide whose answer is better.
It’s my blog.
Here we go!
1. What are your feelings on festive, holiday vests?
Susie – Why? Who told you I had feelings for them? I…um…no, I don’t have a sparkly teddy bear Christmas sweater with red and green buttons. Seriously, it doesn’t light up or anything, either. I mean…why would I have something like that?
Charity – Oh my gosh. That’s amazing. ha ha ha!! I love that Christmas with the Kranks and all her lovely vests. My husband, as I’ve previously posted, has a Moostletoe sweatshirt. It is so scary!!
— I think you got that one 8-/ I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not!

2. If you could choose one place to visit, all expenses paid, where would you go?
Susie – Europe. No…Africa. No…Alaska. No…China. No…Australia. No… Seriously, I could do this all day long. Can my answer be “All the places”?
Charity – Oh my goodness. ha. I would totally go to Greece. It is sooooo pretty with all the white buildings and crystal clear blue water. *sigh*
— I get that one. You are too indecisive (:
Charity 1 / Susie 1
Susie – The tape worm diet.
Susie – Sure! It would be fun for about 5 minutes. Then some crazy person (that would be me) would come walking in with a glass of tomato juice and all the pretty white furniture would be ruined. I’m clumsy.
Susie – I love June because it’s when my kids are out of school and we can hang out together for 3 whole months. My kids are pretty awesome.
Susie – Oh man, my toenails are pretty gross right now. Winter in Michigan is no time to paint your toenails.
Susie – These days we don’t get out on dates as much as we used to. But when we do, we laugh so much my stomach hurts. He’s funny (I mean, not as funny as I am) and sweet and hot…sigh. He’s wonderful.
Susie – Only in my head…
Susie – Okay. I’ve got 2 sisters. Talking in the bathroom’s kind of normal for me. I do have friends who are a little creeped out by it, so I try to be cool and wait until I’m done. I do draw the line at talking on the phone in the bathroom, especially when it’s a bathroom with lots of stalls. On more than one occasion I responded to a stranger in the bathroom who I didn’t know was talking on the phone. That’s awkward on so many levels.
A Cup of Dust is set in 1930’s Oklahoma at the height of what we now call The Dust Bowl. Ten year old Pearl Spence is happy to spend her days daydreaming and wandering around her hometown of Red River. All’s well until a mysterious hobo hops off the train with a load of secrets. A Cup of Dust releases October 27, 2015 with Kregel publications.

Keep an eye out for more fun as we prepare for her fall release of A Cup of Dust!!!
