Kristan joins us today to answer our 20 Questions. Enjoy!

Kindle or Nook? Old school…still like real books. But a Kindle’s in my future. 
iPhone or BlackBerry? Plain old cell phone. 

Coke or Pepsi? Don’t drink soda! More of a seltzer girl, actually… 

Coffee or tea? Oh, coffee. 

Ice cream or frozen yogurt? Ice cream! I’m a proud supporter of Ben & Jerry’s. I think their sales would tank if I ever stopped eating ice cream. 

Flats or heels? Heels. Three inches, or it doesn’t count. 

Facebook or Twitter? Facebook. 

Call or text message? Call. My friends like to text me as a form of torture, knowing I hate to text. Have to get over that soon, but for now, call, most def. 

Favorite song right now? Make You Feel My Love by Adele (written by Bob Dylan).

Celebrity crush? Gerard Butler, Danny Craig, James Franco (he’s young enough that I could’ve babysat him, but I don’t care). 

Movie you saw recently? Battle: Los Angeles. I enjoyed it! I like movies with lots of explosions. 
Favorite television show right now? Modern Family. 

Favorite snack food? Popcorn. 

Your most overused word or phrase? “Just”… I’m just saying, I just seem to just overuse the word. I don’t mean to…it just seems to happen. 

Your hidden talent? Very loud whistler. Need a cab? I’m your girl. 

Your biggest pet peeve? I have no pet peeves. I’m a saint. Wait…actually, I have a few…People who stand in front of an entrance in groups, oblivious to those who want to go in or out…my children making strange, repetitive noises…waiters who squat to take my order. I just think that’s odd. I don’t mind looking up. Plus, it’s going to take a toll on their knees someday, all that squatting. 

Favorite activity when you’re not writing? These days, it’s taking walks with the puppy. 

Favorite authors? Eloisa James, Elinor Lipman, Robyn Carr, Sherry Thomas, Susan Mallery…too many to name, frankly. 

Favorite books? Gone With the Wind; The Pursuit of Alice Thrift; Abide with Me.

Comment heard most often from your readers? “I woke up my husband, I was laughing so hard.”

About My One and Only
Harper James thinks she’s got life pretty well figured out. As a divorce attorney, she certainly sees a lot of what doesn’t work. Her good-hearted and obedient boyfriend, Dennis, is perfect husband material, so she takes control of the situation and pops the question. But before she can get a firm answer, she gets some news. Her stepsister is getting married…to the brother of Harper’s ex-husband, Nick. Will she fly to Montana to be maid of honor, even though Nick’s going to be best man? Are you kidding? Of course she will…even though it’s been twelve years since they’ve seen each other and even if he did break her heart. She can handle seeing Nick again. She’s almost positive.
