Welcome, Lisa Rogers, author of Angelina's Secret!

1. Where did the story of Angelina's Secret stem from?

Before writing Angelina's Secret, I wrote a nonfiction book containing true ghost stories. After signing this book with an agent and still not having any luck placing it with a publisher, I thought a fiction story about ghost might be more marketable. Thus, Angelina's Secret was born. Even though I have since been able to place my nonfiction work, On Haunted Ground, once I started writing fiction I fell in love with it and hope to write many more fiction books. 

2. What inspires you to write? 

I have always loved to read and to think that someone might be getting that same kind of joy from reading one of my books inspires me beyond words. 

3. You can only read three books for the rest of your life - which do you choose, and why? 

Only threefor the rest of my life?!?!?! What an awful thought! That must mean I'm going to die soon. *cries softly* Okay I'm hoping I still have some time before I go because my top three are books that haven't been published yet. I would NEED to finish the two series I have started. I would want to finish the Ganzfield series, which would include reading Operative and Soulmate. And I simply can't leave this earth without reading Deity the third book in the Covenant series. 

4. What do you like most about being an author? 

Writing fills the need to do something sane with all of the characters running around in my head, and I LOVE working in my pajamas. 

5. Describe Angelina's Secret in 10 words or less, please! 

Most cheerleaders don't have THIS kind of spirit!

6. Is there anything else you would like to tell your readers?
