Amy's questions for me:
What is one book or movie ending that you didn't like or agree with? And if given the chance to rewrite it yourself, what would you do differently? 
Oh that is a great question! There have been MANY movies that I finished watching and immediately said, "Wait, that's it?!" Most recently this happened with The Prestige. When the movie ended, I was left very confused.

Choose two authors you'd love to see write a book together. Why those two? 
Josh Malerman and Robert Kirkman. I am so obsessed with each of these writers... I can't even imagine how incredible a book would be if they worked on it together! Even if one of Josh's books were turned into a graphic novel, I'd be totally on board!

What is one fictional place you would LOVE to visit?

You're cast in a Disney tale. Are you more likely to be the hero, the villain, the trickster, or the damsel? 
Definitely the damsel. I'm always getting myself into weird and unfortunate situations. 

Favorite song and why. 
Summer of 69 by Bryan Adams. I know it's inappropriate, but I didn't understand it at the time! haha I love this song because it always reminds me of the very first time I heard it.

I nominate:
