If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?I’ve always said that if I could be a superhero I’d have the power of healing. I’m all about bringing on the positive. What bigger bang can you get for your buck if you are the catalyst for healing someone and helping someone live a better life. That’s what I hope my stories bring to those who read them: escape, adventure, and happiness.
Collette Cameron is an Amazon #1 best-selling and award-winning Historical Romance Author who makes her home in Oregon with her husband & five mini-dachshunds. You'll always find animals, quirky--sometimes naughty--humor, & a dash of inspiration in her novels.

Do you have a favorite place you have traveled to? Or perhaps a place you long to visit?Anyplace new is great! I love exploring different cities. Probably my favorite trips have been to San Francisco and New Orleans. I really want to take a trip to the UK. I’ve never been except through Google Maps, and it’s just not quite the same as actually being there. I’d like to visit Europe too, but I think either a very long trip or two separate ones would be best.

You are forced to live on a desert island for six months. Food and bare survival equipment will be provided but that is all. You can take one person and five items to relieve the boredom and enhance the experience. Who is the person and what are the items? Why?I’m going to treat this like fantasy island and say that I get to bring along Chris Evans and a year’s supply of condoms. I shouldn’t have to explain that decision *wink. My other four items would be a kindle fire tablet with all the twilight movies uploaded onto them, a huge battery pack to power the tablet and a pair of towels for me and Chris after our sexy times in the ocean.

He’s wicked and naughty and funny and sexy and sometimes vulgar and crude, but he’s also incredibly loyal and protective of those he cares about. I adore him!
