Sunny Frazier- Twelve Question Tuesday

Today I welcome Sunny Frazier to Twelve Question Tuesday. 

1.  Please tell me the three most important things people should know about you.
I served my country during the Viet Nam war (Navy).
I have been doing astrology for 43 years.
I worked 11 years with an undercover narcotics team. 

2.  Are you a dog person or a cat person?
With 12 cats currently in residence, I think it's safe to say I'm a feline person.

3.  Tea or coffee?
Tea. English or Irish Breakfast tea.

4.  Boxers, briefs, boxer-briefs, or commando? (Either what you prefer or what you prefer on others.)
Do granny panties count? So comfy.

5.  What was the first thing you ever wrote?
A story my older sister needed for a class assignment. She cheated--and then became a nun.

6.  When did you finally decide to call yourself a writer?
When I got my own column in the high school newspaper. I was the editor of the Tiger's Voice.

7.  Which of your works are you most proud to have written?
A children's book that has yet to be published.

8.  What is the scariest thing that has ever happened to you?
I nearly got thrown into prison in Haiti for taking a photo of the armory. The people in the Iron Market rioted and got me out of there.

9.  How did you end up getting published?
Two friends and I collected our prize winning short stories and co-published with Fithian Press. The book is calleld "Valley Fever: Where Murder Is Contagious."

10.  Would you be food or fighter if the zombie apocalypse were to happen?
I'd be food.

11.  What is the most daring thing you have ever done?
Ran across the tarmac, barricaded the luggage door of a plane in Bogota, kicked a Colombian guard while my friend searched for our baggage with our passports and had to turn myself in to the JAG at my Navy base in Puerto Rico. We were NOT smuggling cocaine or emeralds. Total misunderstanding.

12.  Would you rather be rich or famous--and you could only have one-- and why?  The fame would be based on something good, not something like being the best serial killer or anything like that.
Famous. Nobody cares if you're rich when you die.


A Snitch In Time, the third book in the Christy Bristol Astrology Mysteries, explores the possibility of using astrology to profile a serial killer. The book will be out around Thanksgiving and will be available on Amazon.

Thank you Sunny for joining me today. You are a woman of mystery--I learn something new about you every time I read a new interview about you or blog you've written.

Marilyn Meredith a.k.a. F. M. Meredith said...

That was a fun one. Get that book out there.

Diane Kratz said...

The questions were fun and your book sounds fascinating! I love anything serial killer, including different ways to profile them!

Sunny Frazier said...

Thank you, Holli. And those are only the stories I'm comfortable telling!

Marilyn, I feel you nipping at my heels.

Diane, I have no idea how I missed you at PSWA. You're profile blew me away and I have to look for your book.

James Callan said...

Great fun, Sunny & Holli. Maybe you need to do a memoir, Sunny. It would be very interesting.

Fun interview, ladies! But, honestly, twelve cats? I'd spend every moment of the day sneezing. : )

I laughed out loud on the food for zombies answer. I'd think the zombies wouldn't stand a chance with you! Excellent learning more about you, and I agree with Jim, a memoir would certainly be interesting.

cncbooks said...

Snicker snort ;-p LOVE this interview---great questions and answers both. As for me and the zombies, I'd like to pretend I'd be a fighter but, truth is, the zombies could shuffle faster than I could.


Lesley Diehl said...

Funny questions; hilarious answers.

Well, talk about learning something more about you, Sunny. This one did it. How fun is that. Granny undies? Hmm, might give them a try.

Liane Spicer said...

You kicked a Colombian guard? You've impressed the hell out of me (again).

jrlindermuth said...

I take it you're barred forever from Colombia. Too bad. Mexico is nicer anyway. Good interview.

Sunny Frazier said...

Jim, a memoir would make you blush!

Marja, I have a big house and lots of yard. I barely see them until it's dinner time.

Chris, fighting zombies is too much work. Lelia and I would be appetizers.

Yes, John L., I can never go back to that country again. My passport was never stamped out. Maybe they're looking for me. . .

Eileen Obser said...

Great fun reading this. Holli, I love your 12-question format -- and Sunny, your answers are s delight

Can't wait to read your new book, Sunny. And I loved reading your answers to these crazy interview questions. Granny panties? Or perhaps boxers on someone else? Sensible too, and they tease the senses.
