Inside the Author with 20 Questions: M. Mabie



1. What is one thing about you that would surprise us?
Hell, we read romance. Does anything surprise us anymore. Hahaha. One time my apartment was shot up and I learned I have Chuck Norris cat-like ninja skills. Also, please note, I didn’t live in a dangerous part of town or anything it was a crazy fluke. One time I broke Gavin Rossdale’s microphone during a live show, then got to meet him afterward. And my husband is a drummer and he’s been on 4 tours. They even opened up for Lit at Spring Break.

2. What would an ideal day be for you?
A weekday. I have a cover reveal, new book announcement coming soon? Maybe sometime around that? Early March?

3. What is your favorite curse word?
I’m an equal opportunity swearer, but FUCK is always great.

4. What is your favorite movie?
Probably Wayne’s World. I’ve watched it over and over and I never get sick of it. I also love The Jerk, Monthy Python’s The Holy Grail, The Cutting Edge (because Toe-pick!), I watch Twilight, or any of those movies, every time they’re on TV, Goonies, Clueless, Big Lebowski, Eddie Murphy RAW. I’m sure there’s more.  

5. What is your favorite indulgence?
I love dark romance, and I’d love to write one sometime, but I also HATE it. It totally makes me come unhinged and crawl out of my skin. I’m almost totally sick the whole time I read, yet I get SO deep into those worlds I can barely find my way out. I always say my favorite genre is standard contemporary, but then when I start recalling my favorite books I notice some of them are dark as shit. Hahaha.

6. What profession would you not like to do?
Garbage person. I hate trash or anything to do with it.

7. Who is your celebrity crush?
It used to be Gavin Rossdale, but I think I’m a John Krasinski, Alex Libby, Chase Rice girl now. Well, today. Problem is, I’m a crush slut and it’s been changing almost everyday.

8. What is your FB relationship status (single, married, it’s complicated)?

9. What is your biggest phobia?
BIRDS! Yuck. Ew. Fuck that.

10. What are your favorite foods?
Pringles, tacos, all appetizers, Karmal Surta Ben & Jerry’s

11. What are you least favorite foods.
Peas (but I can eat them in stuff, just not a spoon of peas. Gross.) Sauerkraut. Yuck. Cooked cabbage. No, thanks.

12. You are at a concert, who are you with and who are you seeing?
I’m with Danny, my husband, and we’re probably seeing Muse or Volbeat. We really want to see Florence + the Machine though.

13. What is your favorite quote?
“She was the prettiest Hell I have ever been in; I didn’t mind burning at all.” -Matt Baker

Although, this changes a lot too. I love finding new quotes. Oh, oh, oh! This one, too.

“It’s Tuesday and you’re beautiful. And it’ll be the same tomorrow… only Wednesday.” -Unknown (at least I don’t know)
