Giveaway and Author Interview: Christmas BodyGuard

Welcome back, Margaret Daley! Since this is the third time for you to visit, I thought I would throw in some fun questions, maybe some that aren’t part of the norm in other interviews. J
·         If you could go anywhere on vacation where would it be?
I would go back to Tahiti. It was gorgeous and so relaxing.
·         Do you have any pets?
I have three cats—one male and two females.
·         Your favorite book that you have written?
Heart of the Amazon—it practically wrote itself. The characters just took over and had fun sloshing through the rain forest.
·         What is your favorite pastime?
First, being with my family—my four granddaughters. Then if I have time, I love to read a good story.
·         Favorite book?
Amazonia by James Rollins (I love the Amazon and this was a terrific adventurous suspense.)
·         Favorite movie?
Dark Knight—the last Batman movie was great—wonderful character development.
·         What people have inspired you in your writing journey?
My family—they have been behind me 100 %.
·         What character in a novel you have read has stood out and seemed to stand the test of time?
Scarlett O’Hara—great character with lots of flaws but strengths, too.
·         If you could meet one person from history who would it be and why?
That’s easy. Jesus. I try to put myself back in history at the time he lived and try to imagine seeing him healing and preaching. What an awesome sight!
·         Okay, last one and a fun one for our readers today: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take one thing, what would it be? Why?
My husband to keep me company.
Too fun, thanks for joining us for a third time!! It is a privilege. J
