1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It always makes me think of my siblings and my cousins. Growing up we probably wore out at least one VHS tape of it and we all knew every line. I watch it at least two or three times each holiday season and not only is it still hilarious, it's so nostalgic for me.
2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)
Jared Padalecki (from the TV show Supernatural). He's too freaking hot. Something about the way he talks lets me know he would be an amazing kisser so if we happened to wind up under the mistletoe together, I wouldn't mind one bit!
3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?
My best Christmas was probably the first Christmas I spent with my now husband. He proposed on New Years Eve but I had no idea since he still showered me with gifts that Christmas. Those moments when we were head-over-heels crazy in love were so much fun. I still love and adore him, I'm just not 19 anymore haha!
My worst Christmas was a few years ago. I got a terrible flu and was out of commission starting the day after Christmas. It was so sad not getting to enjoy my vacation days with my family since I was carrying the plague. But I ended up on the couch with The Griswolds :D
4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?
The music. I'm a hopeless romantic and the sounds of Christmas music always put me in the most lovey-dovey mood. I'm one of those crazy people that starts listening to Christmas albums the second Halloween is over.
5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?
I'd say Danielle from Last Resort/Best Laid Plans and the holiday short, Mistletoe & Hollywood, probably loves Christmas the most. She's all about decorating and baking and getting snowed in with Evan--for obvious reasons!
Nina from The Low Notes doesn't seem like a huge fan of the holidays. She's distanced from her family which never makes for a happy Christmas in her house.
Where to find Kate:
Inspired by music, film, art and the wealth of stories she has heard through her career as a professional hair stylist, Kate Roth has been dreaming up love stories since junior high.
Kate's first two novels, New Adult romance THE LOW NOTES and New Adult Paranormal romance RECKLESS RADIANCE were originally released by Rebel Ink Press but have since been re-released as second editions and indie works. Her other works include Adult Contemporary romances NATURAL HARMONY and SWAY (both from the Confession Records collection), erotic romances, LAST RESORT and BEST LAID PLANS, and the holiday collaboration, MISTLETOE & HOLLYWOOD. And she is hard at work on her next few novels. She is a small business owner and lives in Indiana with her husband, Adam and their dog, Sampson.
