Spotlight Saturday: DJ Pierson

Here are 10 random facts about DJ Pierson:

1. Reading is my favorite hobby. (Guess that is obvious, huh?) I've gone without sleep and have skipped meals while reading a really good book.
2. The Twilight Series is what got me back into reading in the first place.
3. I was inspired to tell my own story after reading “Thoughtless” by S.C. Stephens. I have a major crush on Kellan Kyle. Seriously.
4. Some people may say sarcasm is my primary language. I’m not sure what they mean by that.
5. I don’t have the heart to think of my book boyfriends as “fictional.” They are very real to me.
6. I have the funniest, most lovable best friends a girl could ask for and I couldn't live without them. Just don’t tell them that. It will go right to their heads.
7. My idea of a fun Saturday night is relaxing outside with good friends, never-ending drinks, and music while the kids run around playing. Man, does that make me sound old…
8. My favorite band is Maroon 5. Well, any band that has Adam Levine as their lead singer would be my favorite band. I absolutely love him! (Yes, my husband is aware of this.)
9. I’ve never thought of writing my own book before. Most interviews I read like this, authors say how they have been writing their whole lives. It never occurred to me until recently. Once I had a professor suggest I take an advanced writing class, but my busy schedule never allowed for it. Maybe I should attempt to take one now??? It’s definitely more fun to write when it’s something you want to write about!
10. Writing this book is the first thing I've really done for myself since having kids. They are nine and seven. It was so much fun, I’m going to have to try it again!

And 10 random facts About Forever Altered:

1. Forever Altered was just supposed to be a short story for my friends. I have pushy friends who told me to write more and publish it. (Thanks Girls!)
2. I love dipping pretzels in cookies-n-cream ice cream just as much as Alyssa does!
3. Cell Bio was truly the only class I ever had trouble with in my life! I hated that class!
4. My BFF’s husband helped me pick Rocco’s car. I honestly know nothing about cars.
5. I wrote in the Philadelphia Phillies because they really are my favorite team. I always read about their rivals in other books. They deserve to be mentioned for a change!!
6. The CD Alyssa listens to on her way home is “Overexposed.” Did I mention I love Maroon 5?
7. While I was writing this book, I had a few friends reading it. They kept threatening me Kathy Bates/Misery style if it didn't end the way they wanted it to. Some friends, right??
8. I used my birthday in the book just because I could. March 13. Alyssa tells Rocco he had three minutes and thirteen seconds to spare in Chapter 15.
9. When Alyssa is babysitting the twins, the movie they watch is Toy Story. When my daughter started school, my son and I would watch it over and over again. I used to hear Woody, Buzz, Mr. Potato Head and the whole gang in my sleep!
10. The title Forever Altered came about by accident. I was texting with a friend one day when I told her something left me forever altered. She said “that’s a good title for a book.” It couldn't have been more appropriate for many characters in the story.
