Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Fiction, mainly contemporary romance, science fiction romance, mystery, romantic suspense, military adventure. I'm a pretty eclectic reader, though I'm not fond of nonfiction unless it's a subject I'm really interested in--say, for research.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, watching movies, gardening, quilting, and playing with my grandkids. Not in that order. If grandkiddies visit, everything else gets put aside. They love writing stories--they speak, I type. We print out the stories and they illustrate. Great division of labor.
