Well, I certainly did learn some new things about you. :-) I would have never guessed mac & cheese was your favorite dish. And it brings a tear to my eyes to think about your unforgettable moments. Getting the call about my mom is something I'll never forget either. I went numb, I can remember the feeling as if it just happened. So *hugs*.

Love this post. I may have to give it a try on my own blog. :-)

Fun post, Sarah and Casey!

I'm honored to be on your list of favorite authors, Casey. I enjoyed learning new things about you and hugs on your unforgettable moment. I'm with you on the Butterfinger, but whereas you have Oreo, my kitty sleeps under my desk. :)

I love mac and cheese so much that it's my #1 comfort food and I requested it for this last birthday which was Difficult!

I think you should do something like this. It's easy to guest and fun!

Butterfingers but not black jelly beans? Oh, I have such a story about that...it could be an interesting post. Can't have kitties around here. Dear hubby is terribly allergic to them.

Thanks for taking time to stop by.

Glad to have you visit with me today, Casey!

I'm so glad you liked my quick responses. I'm even happier Soul String appeals to you. Book 2 should be available late next week and I've been working on Book 3 all week.

Have a great weekend.

Sure, now all I can think about is Butterfingers:)

I'm totally with you on the "Castle" thing!

LOVE the cover of Soul String and I enjoy reading tidbits of information about my fellow virtual author friends. Dogs, vanilla ice cream with chocolate bits, Fall, mac and cheese - I like a lot of the same things.
Thanks for sharing.

I love this cover also and Book 2 is even more spectacular!. Tonight I was with my sisters to celebrate my birthday and while we didn't have mac and cheese we had the very best pasta ever and a tiramisu to die for.

Sorry to be so late. I really enjoyed the interview.
