Hello Ms. Wendy Higgins.  Welcome to Bookshelf Confessions. I’m so excited to have you today.
Thank you so much for agreeing to this interview.

1. I’m so excited for Sweet Reckoning, as much as it’s sad to say bye to the characters. Do you have upcoming books or what are your current projects right now?
~ I've just started a new YA contemporary romance, which I'm calling Kiss Collector.  No idea if it'll eventually get picked up for publication, but it feels good to be writing!
It's on goodreads

2.Your books have interesting and beautiful character names, like Kaidan Rowe and Kopano—it was brilliant ;). If you could have picked your own name, what would it be and why?

~ I've always liked the name Kelly. I obviously have a thing for K-names, haha. I think Kelly is a fun and sweet name.  Most of my character names I found on the web by Googling unique baby names!

3.Most of us (if not all) who have read your books have a huge crush on Kaidan Rowe (**fan-scream**), what do you think makes him very appealing to women both to the characters in the book and to your readers? (In addition, have you seen this coming- fan girls falling for Kaidan?)

~ I think many girls (and I) love the intensity of Kaidan. Mystery is appealing.  So is danger.  We know Kaidan is capable of breaking our hearts, but he's so sexy with that accent and musical talent.  We can't help but want to obtain and tame wild, beautiful things. 

4.Talking about crushes, do you have a crush on an actor or a book character? Who and Why? (well, except for Kaidan—he’s a given J)

~ I have a crush on actor Josh Hartnett. Not sure why...he has terrible hair, but something about his eyes when he smiles and his deep voice.  Mmm.  :)  

Josh Hartnett

As far as books go, I'm in love with Daemon Black from the Lux series, and Jackson from Poison Princess!

5.As an ending note, I’d love to ask you to say something for the readers of Bookshelf Confessions and I’d like to thank you---thank you so much for having the time for this interview :)

~ Thank you so much for having me on the blog!  To your readers I want to say "Hello and thanks for taking the time to stop by!"  I love to tweet and Facebook with readers, so don't hesitate to say hi!  :)
