Special Christmas Interview with Author Rose Garcia

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

Oh man, do I have to pick just one? I can't! And so, I'll pick three. (LOL) The tear-jerker classic: It's a Wonderful Life, the modern, animated, tear-jerker: Polar Express, and the feel-good and funny Elf. These are my faves because even though they're so different, they each had a profound impact on me. From the depths of despair of George Bailey, to the doubting young boy, and then to the abandonment issues of Elf, it's the journey of these characters that moved me.

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

TOM HIDDLESTON!!!!!! No hesitation, no doubt, no regets, and my hubs would totally understand and forgive me. I'm beyond infatuated with Tom. *swoons* Want proof? Go check out my Tom Hiddleston board on Pinterest. I promise it won't disappoint.

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

The ultimate worst Christmas was the year my parents divorced. I was only 16. Talk about emotional and heartbreaking. To this day, Christmas has never really been the same. (Sad, but true.)

The best Christmas is any and every Christmas with my hubs and my amazing kids. They are the light of my life!

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

Family. Sure, the food is awesome, the drinking is plentiful, and the gifts can be great, but for me Christmas is all about spending time with your loved ones and remembering the reason for the season.

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

Whoa. I just realized that none of my characters love Christmas. Dominique and all those linked to her mission to survive her final life are too busy trying to live. There's no time to celebrate holidays. Even Trent, who lost his parents to an accident, doesn't like Christmas. And Infiniti is Jewish. So there ya go.

Thanks, Rose!

Rose Garcia is a lawyer turned writer who's always been fascinated by science fiction and fantasy. From a very young age, she often had her nose buried in books about other-worlds, fantastical creatures, and life and death situations. More recently she's been intrigued by a blend of science fiction and reality, and the idea that some supernatural events are, indeed, very real. Fueled by her imagination, she created The Transhuman Chronicles--a series of books about people who have overcome human limitations.
