Katie Ruggle is the author of an upcoming romantic suspense Search & Rescue series. The first book in the series, Hold Your Breath, doesn’t release until April 5th but you can get a taste of the series by downloading the free prequel novella, On His Watch, which is available now. We asked Katie to stop by and answer a few rapid fire questions! Welcome Katie Ruggle!
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Both please! If I have to choose, I’d pick vanilla—the fancy kind with real beans. Mmm…vanilla. Now I’m going to need dessert after my pizza and margarita dinner.
Pepsi or Coke?
Eh, neither really. I’ve never been a pop drinker, except when doing long drives from Colorado to Minnesota and needing caffeine but not wanting to get that fast-talking-and-possible-heart-attack-having feeling from coffee (see “Coffee or Tea” answer above). Honestly, I can’t taste a difference between Pepsi and Coke.
So many things… I need to quit checking my reviews; eating so many cookies; obsessing over comma placement and whether or not to use subjunctive tense while I’m writing (the grammar nerd in me can’t help it!); considering popcorn and Hot Tamales candy a balanced meal; procrastinating and just unpack those final two moving boxes tucked upstairs, out of sight.
I never get tired of ___ ?
Fun one! Reading good books; talking about said good books with others who are just as excited about them as I am; writing what will hopefully be good books; walking in the woods right after it snows when the only other tracks besides mine and the dogs’ are wild creatures’; riding horses; learning new things, especially those that make me feel strong and brave; target shooting (I love the smell of gunpowder—odd, right?); spending time with my family (they’re overall awesome people); SCUBA diving; helping others in a crisis (or just with something small); getting to know my (sometimes quirky) neighbors; being as self-sufficient as possible; visiting new places. Okay, I’ll stop now. 🙂
When she’s not writing, Katie Ruggle rides horses, shoots guns, and travels to warm places where she can SCUBA dive. Graduating from the Police Academy, Katie received her ice-rescue certification and can attest that the reservoirs in the Colorado mountains really are that cold. While she still misses her off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains, she now lives in Rochester, Minnesota near her family.
