Back when I was on inkpop, every week, they had inkpopper of the week – they’d interview a person online and it was really cool. It’s been four (what the heck?!) since I was innkeeper of the week and since it was the week of my birthday, so I thought it would be fun to do a then and now type thing.
inkpopper of the week interview
Then |Â Laura:Â Mystery is my favorite genre for sure. I love the suspense but hate it at the same time. And right now, Iâ€™m actually hand writing a romance book, so itâ€™ll be interesting to see how that turns out without a mystery to be solved!
Now | Laura:Â Mystery is still my favorite genre to read, but the funny thing is, I don’t actually read a lot of mystery. I watch a lot of true crime TV shows and I read a lot of romance, chick-lit books because romance is something I. do. not. understand. And I still never wrote that romance book. whoops.
Â Then |Â Laura:Â Iâ€™d love to be writing as a career, but Iâ€™ve grown up in a home where Iâ€™ve learned to have a back up plan. I really want to do something in the law field when I get older. Iâ€™d be a lawyer, but law school has no appeal to me.
Now | Laura:Â OKAY! So, true story: two months after this interview came out, I took a forensic science/law enforcement class in high school and I soon realized that I have more fun writing about crimes than actually working them. So, now I’m a public relations major. At one of the best criminal justice schools in the country. That has to be a weird full-circle kind of thing.
Then |Â Laura:Â Probably Cassie because Iâ€™ve known her the longest and I know her the best. Cassie is a lot like me, so I can relate to a lot of the stuff I put her through.
Now | Laura:Â Obviously, Cassie still. But very close to that is Connor. You’ll meet Connor soon enough.
â˜…Â Hidden talent?Â Good dog walker? // Certified klutz?
â˜…Â Favorite cartoon character?Â Kim Possible! // This hasn’t changed. My phone makes the Kimmunicator sound.
â˜…Â Favorite vacation spot?Â Grand Canyon. // D.C. – we went there the summer after this interview, and being the political junkie I am, I was in love. That, andÂ The Assassin,Â takes place there.
Well, funny how things change and things don’t change. I really loved reading all these old answers!
