Random Interview Saturday! RACHEL TRAUTMILLER

The H. L. Burke Random Interview is not like other interviews. The questions are all over the place. They have no purpose. Their purpose is their lack of purpose.
There are nine questions because cats, but these nine questions are subject to change without notice, so the questions one person answers may not be the questions answered by the next author.
Again, I apparently am bad about counting questions because this author is the second to accidentally receive 10 questions in spite of my carefully crafted intro ... but she answered them well, so I give you Rachel Trautmiller!!!
Rachel Trautmiller
​Author Bio:
Rachel writes novels filled with murder, mayhem, and romance that leave her readers wanting more incredible twists and turns. SIDE NOTE: A nightlight may be required. Some bleary-eyed mornings have been known to occur. When she’s not riveting readers with the chaotic and sizzling mess of her character’s lives, she can be found poolside with her husband and extremely cute toddler, a dog, and one fat cat. She enjoys football, reading, fingerpainting with her daughter and discussing the NFL draft with her husband. She loves anything to do with the FBI, law enforcement, and the military, spending time with friends and family. And interacting with her readers. 

If you had a store, what would you sell?
A little bit of everything. I LOVE garage sales. I love digging through junk and finding treasure. One time when I was nine, a friend and I found an old newspaper clipping (no actual recollection of what it said) and we were sure something sinister had happened and began an all-out search for more clues. I'm pretty sure this type of store isn't in high demand, but if money is no object, why not? RACHEL'S JUNK. YOU WANT IT, WE PROBABLY HAVE IT, UH, SOMEWHERE? IT'S IN THE JUNK!

Sum up your life in five words and two punctuation marks.
Married young. Waited for Children!

What is your ideal writing space?
Ideal? Really? After my store comment? I could write anywhere. Sometimes, I do. Standing at the kitchen island while my daughter eats lunch. Sitting in our overstuffed chair facing our salt-water fish tank, outside overlooking the pool. If I've got my laptop (or even pencil and paper) I'm good to go. And inspiration. That's a must. Just this evening I wrote with paper and pen while my daughter listened to Psalty The Singing Praisebook (hope that takes a few of you back!).

Give yourself a totally new look, as dramatic as you want. What is it?
Rainbow-colored hair comes to mind. My daughter is currently obsessed with it. Original, I know, but I'm pretty uncreative in this area. Until recently, I still owned clothes I wore in eighth grade! 

Tree House or Cave? And why?
Tree house! Have you heard what could be in CAVES? Spiders, bats, bears, snakes and murderers (why not?). Did I mention BATS????

Nic Cage: Mad man or misunderstood genius?
No idea, but he has a bit of lisp when he says certain words. And all I'm picturing is the tick he has in Matchstick Men. It's enough to make me crazy! 

If you could live inside a theme park ride, which would it be?
Peter Pan at Disneyland. 

What’s the most important lesson you ever learned from a cartoon?
If you pull on a cat's tail, his head will then move in an equal and reciprocal motion on the other side of his body without any kind of physical harm. Kidding... Or am I??

Do you consider yourself a cat person, or a dog person?
Both. I find both to be lovable and annoying at times. Our pit is almost always ready to snuggle with you, but at attention regarding any feline within fifty miles. Or stray leaves. The neighbor taking out his trash cans. And our cat, before he passed, was up for a good scratch on HIS terms and not a second before. If he didn't instigate, he got ornery fast. 

If this question were any question in the world, what question would you want it to be and how would you answer it?
Do I like this type of question? No. No, I do not. BUT I may have some better answers for it on my blog. www.racheltrautmiller.com
