I've posed a few questions to Misty:

Wrong Drawers
Where do you find inspiration? I find inspiration is everyday occurrences. It never fails to amuse me that if you look at something just right, it can be encouraging or something to give you pause and make you think.

How do you juggle writing and life? 
As if every ball is made of super bouncy material except for the one marked family - that's made of glass. (vacuuming is actually made of dish soap bubbles so can float away on its own, in case you were wondering!)

Who is your favorite character and why?  
Ivy, hands down Ivy, because she is down to earth but still has hopes and dreams and eats ice cream with no shame.

What genre do you like to read the most? 
I can't pick just one, I love them all from historical to urban fantasy. Hook me and I don't care what world I'm in, as long as I'm sucked in.

Words of wisdom for new writers:
Don't look too far ahead. It's not always about making a sale or earning the money or being placed on a certain shelf. Sometimes it's about loving what you do and growing as you do it. 
Here's a blurb: Ivy Morris is back, and this time she’s determined to stay out of trouble. She’s comfortably ensconced in her costume shop, happy as a clam. Happy as a clam can be, anyway, when her father has moved in with her for an indefinite amount of time, putting her love life frustratingly on hold. 
So when her best friend asks for help with an in-home demonstration party, Ivy jumps at the chance to get out of the house and away from Dad. She has no idea of the subject until she gets a look at the cookies. But that becomes the least of her troubles when she walks straight into another murder scene. One where she’s the prime suspect.

What else could go wrong? When you’re Ivy Morris, the only right answer is “everything.” With the help of hunky Ben Fallon, this girl will try to figure out why she’s being framed and what it has to do with her getting THE WRONG DRAWERS.

Misty has a new and upcoming release from Harlequin - Wicked Ink  (June 2014) and Protective Ink (October 2014)
I hope you enjoyed insight to a great author! I can't wait for her next release.
That's it According to Maddy~
