To celebrate the holidays, the authors at Darkly Delicious YA are dishing about what we love (and hate) about the holidays. To kick us off we have Kelly Hashway, author of Touch of Death Series, Into the Fire, and The Monster Within. Click here to learn more about Kelly and her work.
Favorite Holiday Drink: I’m a lightweight so I prefer to drink those sparkling ciders in every flavor imaginable. Sparkling peach may be my favorite. I’ll drink the entire bottle myself.
Favorite Holiday Movie/Book (and why): Each year, I watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas EVERY time it’s on TV. I also own it on DVD, which is why I can recite all the words and totally annoy my husband and daughter. ;) I just love that Grinch, even when he’s been being mean. Plus, you can’t beat the sound track. You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch is a classic! But I admit I did not like the Jim Carrey version. Sorry, Jim. I think you’re great, but the cartoon Grinch wins hands down.
My Holiday Wish for the World: As pageanty as it sounds, world peace. Seriously. I hate having to worry about what the world will be like when my daughter grows up. I prefer horror to remain in works of fiction.
Favorite/Worst Holiday Tradition: I love driving around to look at all the Christmas lights. It’s beautiful. On the other hand, I hate sending Christmas cards. I know I sound like the Grinch, but if you knew how often my family and friends change their addresses, you’d understand. I have to double-check everyone’s address before I can send out the cards and I still get some returned.
Favorite Holiday Treat: My mom makes the world’s best Christmas biscotti. I eat them for breakfast for the days following Christmas until they’re gone. ;)
