Hi Tina,

It's great to get to know you better! We're going to Vegas (finally!) end of March. Glad to see it's your favorite vacation. Can't wait!

I just filled out a bunch of questions, and if I don't get back to writing I'm going to let down some very lovely people who say they can't wait for my next book--so please forgive me!!!
