Blog Tour: Curiosity Killed the Kat by Elizabeth Nelson

Welcome to The Wormhole and my day on the tour.
It is my pleasure to feature: 
Elizabeth Nelson and Curiosity Killed the Kat.
This blog tour is presented by Teddy Rose at Virtual Authors Book Tours.
Elizabeth Nelson has joined us here for an interview:
? When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I think I was 12 or 13 and my first crush broke up with me. I didn’t know what to do! I thought my life would be over. I remember crying over my diary as I wrote about how much my heart ached.

? How many jobs did you have before you became a writer?
I’ve worked many jobs. Writing isn’t a job to me. I love it. Writing is like a 6th sense to me. It’s instinctual.

? How long does it take you to write a book?
On average, I can write a short book in 1-3 months. Is that quick?

? What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?
I like to write in only my underwear. Is that weird? haha

? Do you have a routine that you use to get into the right frame of mind to write?
A good cup of coffee and a morning workout usually gets me fired up to write.

? Where do you get your ideas or inspiration for your characters?
I like to draw from personal experience and intertwine it with raw imagination.
? How do you decide what you want to write about?
I write what I would want to read. Simple as that.

 ? What books have most influenced your life?
Nicholas Kristof’s Half The Sky
? What is the first book you remember reading by yourself?
It was probably something along the lines of Green Eggs And Ham by Dr. Suess.
? What are you reading right now?
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
? What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I love live music and watching reality TV.
? What is your favorite comfort food?
Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food.
? What do you think makes a good story?
Having it be believable and having the reader not being able to predict what will come next.
? What book, if any, do you read over and over again?
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett.

More About Elizabeth Nelson:

Elizabeth wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills and relationship techniques have helped hundreds of others find their mojo. After earning a master's degree in secondary education from UNC, she worked abroad teaching English, bar-tended at late night clubs in Chicago, and continues various philanthropy projects that focus on empowering women. But she always returned to writing.

Though she'll forever be a free-spirit at heart, she now lives in Los Angeles with her two dogs. If she's not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rock concerts.
