Author Interview: Denise Jaden
There's a party going on right here! Join the fun. Read the interview below, take a moment to comment, and you'll automatically be entered for a load of fabulous prizes.
Denise and I met thanks to another one of those serendipitous cyber moments. We live in different countries, yet only minutes away from each other. The first time I met Denise, she let me read the first page of LOSING FAITH and I've been dying to get my paws on it ever since. I'm buying my copy on Monday. How about you?
Denise On The Joys of Life:
If I could snap my fingers and solve one of the problems here on earth, it would be:
I feel like a Miss America contestant! You really dive right in with the questions that make one think, don’t you, Angelina? Well okay. Hmmm. I think the root of most problems is unsubstantiated fear—fear of what people think of you (when really they’re not thinking of you at all!), fear of things that you can’t do anything to prevent or help anyway. I think people would have better relationships and lives in general if we weren’t all so afraid of…everything. So I guess my answer would be to abolish unhealthy fear. SNAP!
One question I wish I had a definitive answer to:
Where will I be and what will I be doing in ten years?
Best thing about being a child:
Worst thing about being a child:
Best thing about being a teenager:
Worst thing about being a teenager:
Great passion – ha!
Most memorable teen moment:
Smashing up my dad’s van in a Gold’s Gym parking lot and having to go in and explain the situation to the She-Hulk owner of the car I hit.
A quote I live by:
God is good, no matter what.
My dream vacation:
Definitely a trip to Tahiti. I’ve been a Polynesian dancer most of my life, but I have not had the opportunity to visit many of the Polynesian islands yet. One day…
In My Perfect World…
Everyone would get a massage and reading break at least once a week.
There would be an abundance of chocolate and sugar snap peas.
No one would be deprived of deodorant.
Every child would have two loving parents.
No one would ever hurt another person.
I-phones would be free for everyone.
