Hangin' Out with Courtney Walsh!

It gives me great pleasure to introduce a debut author in Christian fiction--Courtney Walsh!  I've had a blast in the past few days getting to know this fun author through her blog, and it's FILLED with lots of pictures!  Makes sense since she's a scrapper...something I wish I could get motivated to do (both taking pictures and scrapping).  Anyway, I hope you have a great time getting to know Courtney a little better today, and stay tuned at the end for a little something extra.  :o)

Welcome, Courtney!

Not including writing, what was your first job?

My very first job was at a place called "Dairy Supreme". It was like a mom and pop version of Dairy Queen in my little town. I still make a mean banana split!

What is one movie that you could watch over and over again?

Oooohhh...I LOVE movies. And I have several that fit into this category, including The Bourne Trilogy, The First Wives Club, The Proposal and Enemy of the State. Oh and Pride and Prejudice! That one is swoony.

If you could have any one superpower, what would it be?

I think I would want to teleport. That way I could go to Italy without flying over the ocean. And that'd be a dream come true!

What food do you love, even though you know you shouldn’t?

Ha. Pretty much every food I love I probably shouldn't! I REALLY love Chicago style deep dish pizza...and it probably has more calories than I should eat in a month, but it's SO GOOD!

Which magazine do you pick up when you’re stuck in a waiting room?

People! I also read it on planes. I confess, I am completely into the whole Hollywood scene. I like E! News too. :)

Sounds like you and Julie Cantrell (last week's author) have People in common!  She swears I'm a correspondant for them...

Have you ever met anyone famous?

Yes! A few people, but my favorite is Al Pacino. When I was attending a summer theatre program in NYC, he was doing a show at the theatre where I studied. As students, we saw him every day and got to see a preview of his two-man show. The craziest part was when we were in a movement class making HUGE fools of ourselves and turned around and saw him watching at the door. He's quite intimidating!

I see what you mean! 

What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?

My mom swears she doesn't remember this, but one time I set a fire in our back yard and blamed it on the neighbor kid. I got into HUGE trouble. My brother and I also had a big water fight in the bathroom using our Water Pics (did anyone else have those things?) We got in trouble but it was worth it...we got the whole bathroom sopping wet!

You’re next in line to audition for American Idol. What song do you sing for the judges?

Well, since I am not a singer (who is married to a singer) I would say, I'd become one of the people who knew they were going to get on TV for being ridiculous and sing "Ice, Ice Baby" because I know all the words. Every. Single. One. (That's talent, right?)

Hey, that's better than "Pants on the Ground!"
