Sometimes we just gotta let loose. Have a little fun. Thus I had this crazy idea…and I’m pretty excited about it. Hope you love it and if you have suggestions for questions, leave them in the comments! :- )
Name: Melissa Tagg
Home State (completely with address so we can stalk you): Iowa (the place with all the corn). And I know I didn’t give you a full address, but honestly, there aren’t that many people in Iowa. You should be able to find me. Besides, I’m not really that stalk-worthy. Although, I might be flattered if you try.
Occupation: Grant-writer and corporate relations coordinator on a nonprofit development team by day, writer by night. I would also love to be a professional pillow tester but so far I haven’t found anyone willing to pay me for that.
Height: 5’8” I think.
Hair Color: Boring brown. J (Except for the time I dyed it red with kool-aid. It smelled good for days. Only downside was it left the bathroom sink looking like we’d killed someone.)
Celebrity crush: Oh dear. This is a hard one because most of the celebrities I’ve ever had a crush on are, like…dead. Cary Grant, for instance. But for the sake of choosing someone still breathing…Chris Hemsworth. (I know, I know…you thought I was going to say Tim Tebow. But no one ever believes me that it’s his book that makes me love him.)
#1 favorite pastime: Oh dear…number one? If I say hanging out with my family, is that too cliché? Laughing. Watching old movies. Laughing. Playing games. Laughing. I know that’s more than one thing, but technically you can do them all at once.
Best book of your childhood: Christy.
Go to comfort food: Ice cream. Mmm.
Worst job you ever had: In college, this guy in the sports department asked if I’d help them work with the media because I was a “writer.” To this day, I can’t figure out what the job had to do with writing. Basically I called media outlets after games and reported scores. The bad part of it was I never had any idea what I was talking about, faked my way through sports reporters’ questions, and it was late at night when everyone else was out having fun. Yup, that lasted all of one semester.
In Ten Words or Less:
Happiest moment of your life: How to choose?!?! One happiest moment: book contract phone call. J
One thing on your bucket list: Visit Prince Edward Island.
Quirkiest aspect that annoys your spouse/friends: Writer moodiness. Enough said.
Greatest dream: To learn to love like Christ. And master crazy hair.
Biggest fear: Serious—losing loved ones. Silly—getting trapped in a carwash.
Phew, that 10-word thing was a challenge!
Wooo-hooo! Can't wait for the release of Made to Last! I've preordered my copy, have you??
Thanks so much to Melissa for hanging out on my blog today! Come September we're going to be throwing a massive party for the release of the novel, so come dressed for the fun! :-)
My guest next month?
The awesome Rachel Hauck!
You won't want to miss it. :-)
