Happy Monday, friendly friends! 
Today, I'm happy to introduce cheese-obsessed, author, Crystal Collier and her debut novel, Moonless. She's agreed to answer 10 fun questions and give you guys a chance to win stuff, so after reading, be sure to keep scrolling for the wonderful rafflecopter thinga-majig.

Ten Terrible Truths REVEALED

1. When did you become obsessed with cheese?

Um, the day I was born. No, seriously, it’s a family infection.

2. Craziest thing you’ve ever done? (change names to protect the innocent if necessary)

Moved to NYC 8 months prego with two little kids, no family local, and a barely-keep-you-from-starving job for my hubby.

3. One selfish wish…what would it be?

A time stopper. I have death-inducingly long TBR list.

4. Do you believe in ghosts?

*shifty eyes* The real question is, *leaning in and whispering* do they believe in me?

5. Favorite actor—who’s your fantasy man?

*gulp* Brad Pitt? –But really, I don’t form fantasy crushes…much. I’m seriously infatuated with my husband. 

6. Do you have any weird habits?

Like eating too much cheese? I might be (AM) addicted to blogging. Shoving my glasses back up my nose bridge… (Because I deal with allergies here in FL, and contacts are NOT an option.) 

7. When you write, do you have to have a particular setup, or do you just write anywhere, anytime?

As long as there’s a plate of cheese next to me, I’m good to go. Oh, and a computer. I ADORE pencils and pens, but I’m not sure I know how to use them anymore.

8. Dream vacation?

I don’t do vacations. I moved places, get to know the culture, then move on. That said, I’d LOVE to go to India.

9. Most embarrassing moment?

I don’t really have one of these. Lots of little moments when I said something then felt like slapping a hand over my own mouth, and proceeded to deftly inserted my own foot further into my throat.

10. Favorite song?

Bwa-ha-ha-ha! Yes? You know I’m a composer, right? Music is life. 

Crystal Collier, author of MOONLESS, is a former composer/writer for Black Diamond Productions. She can be found practicing her brother-induced ninja skills while teaching children or madly typing about fantastic and impossible creatures. She has lived from coast to coast and now calls Florida home with her creative husband, three littles, and “friend” (a.k.a. the zombie locked in her closet). Secretly, she dreams of world domination and a bottomless supply of cheese. 

You can find her on her blog and Facebook, or follow her on Twitter.

Wow, Crystal's even more amazing than I suspected! I hope you guys enjoyed her visit, and I encourage you all to click on her links, below, to learn more about Moonless and snatch up a copy!
