Here I would showcase authors who I believe are exquisite not only in writing but as a person as well. This is my way of showing my support for their talents and books and my appreciation for being granted the chance to know them.This month, I chose this beautiful author not only for her fantastic book but also because of her friendly and bubbly personality. She never showed disinterest in people who approach her (on Twitter that is) and is always there to answer questions. I give to you
If you've been following me on Twitter, you would know that Jodi is one of my all time favorite authors thus she landed the first spot in this feature. I was so lucky that she granted my wish of interviewing her. I have asked some (silly) questions about her knitting hobby, lovely ferrets and of course, her books. Hope you enjoy our little chit-chat!

My favorite is Hiro. How many ferrets do you have and why are you so fond of them expect for the obvious reason that they are adorable?I have three ferrets currently, but I've had up to seven at once. I'm not sure what attracted me to the idea of ferrets at first. They're fun, silly, bouncy -- a lot like perpetual kittens. They're just fun. They make me happy.
Are they difficult to pet?Not usually. They're different from having a cat or dog, but as with any pet, you get used to the work it takes to care for them. The most difficult thing is the number of problems they can develop, thanks to poor breeding in the U.S..
How do you actually manage your time knitting and writing then taking care of yourself, family and your cuddly ferrets?My ferrets generously share an office with me. (Hang on, Ando requires a treat.) Sharing a room with the ferrets means I can spend time with them at work at once. I knit and spin after lunch or dinner, when I'm watching a movie or an episode of a TV show with my husband. I also knit when when I need to pause and think about what I'm writing.
