Interview with  Vicki Batman:

Crystal: Today I have the pleasure of hosting Vicki Batman. Welcome Vicki! I'm so excited to have you here today. Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today? 

Vicki: Good morning!
I’m Vicki Batman, and yes, that is really my last name. I can honestly say I married a superhero. I’ve been writing for twelve years. Two romantic comedy mysteries have been published by The Wild Rose Press and around 35-ish short stories and essays have been pubbed by other publishers, indie pubbed, and indie anthologies. I play mahjong, Jazzercise every day, love hamburgers and chocolate, have two sons, and adore the Thin Man movies.

Crystal:  What are you currently working on?

Vicki: I’m working on my third romantic comedy mystery, Temporarily Out of Luck, and a new romantic comedy short story, “Christmas Romeo.”

Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for either your current release?

Vicki: “Raving Beauty” was inspired by something I did in my younger days-two times I was a contestant in a beauty pageant. The first one was for scholarship money. Sadly, I didn’t win; the girl who looked 25 did. The second was after generous helpings of margaritas, I was persuaded to say yes to representing my friend’s moped shop in a RV pageant. The blonde
with the cornrows won.

Crystal:  Do you have a favorite snack that like to munch on while writing? If so would you mind sharing what it is with us?

Vicki: I am soooo trying not to snack while writing-I know, a stick in the mud. But on occasion, I stop for popcorn or nuts. I always have a chocolate covered caramel after lunch too.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us? 

Vicki: Absolutely! From “Raving Beauty” where our heroine, Kelly, is in the bath.

I'd been soaking for, oh, thirty minutes when a fist pounded the door.
"Hey," Daniel said.
Crud.
"Are you drowning in there?"
"No."
"Want your back scrubbed?"
"Are you a famous, buffed-up action hero?"
"No."
"Then, eat poo and die."
"I was thinking-"
Amazing.
"-I'm going to pick up some burgers."
My stomach growled.
"I won't be long. Be out soon, or I'm coming in."
"Ha. We both know you want to see me naked."
"Been there, done that already today. And by the way-”
“What now?”
I heard him move closer to the door, and then he softly said, “The
mole on your left hip is worth exploring…with my tongue.”
I screamed.

Crystal:  When you are not busy writing wonderful stories to keep us lucky readers
entertained, what do you like to do? Do you have a hobby?

Vicki: I kick off every day with a Jazzercise class. I love to stitch needlepoint or embroidery and have several projects going. Shush-starting on a Christmas lap blanket for someone in my family.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite background noise you like to having going while you write (TV, Music, kids playing)? 

Vicki: Mostly, I listen to classical guitar music; however, since I bought a new laptop, I have been in the family room, watching reruns of M*A*S*H. I love that show.

Crystal:  Thanks for visiting. It has been a pleasure having you visit today. Can you
think of anything else you would like to share with us?

Vicki: If you like to read romantic comedy, please check me out! Have a happy day reading!!!
