Today I'd like to introduce to you Meredith Schorr, author of a fantastic new book Just Friends with Benefits. I'm very excited to have Meredith here at A Novel Review to tell us what are: 

THE FIVE W’S  OF Meredith Schorr

WHO? Who is Meredith Schorr?

As both a writer and a woman, I view myself as someone who always strives to be happy, to make the people I love happy, to learn from my mistakes, to treasure the good times and find some way to improve as a result of the bad times.  When asked to describe myself in five words, I usually go with kind, sensitive, passionate, quirky and loyal!  On the flip side, I'm messy, klutzy, over-sensitive, over-analytical and impatient!
WHAT? What do you enjoy doing other than writing in your spare time?

I love running - am training for my first half marathon.  My favorite sport is baseball and I am a die-hard New York Yankees fan.  I love to read and am the organizer of a chick-lit book club.  And sleeping, eating, watching tv, listening to music and chilling with my friends and loved ones are among my favorite pastimes.

WHEN? When did you know you wanted to be a writer? 

When I discovered that writing, whether a story, in depth email to a client or a blog post, gave me almost the same kind of "high" as running and I started to receive positive feedback and encouragement from folks who read my work, I knew I had found my calling. 

WHERE? Where do you write?

I tend to write in short increments of time wherever and whenever I get the chance.  Sometimes it is a coffee shop, sometimes it is a park, sometimes it is at the beauty parlor waiting my turn.  I don't enjoy writing in my apartment all that much, except for revisions. 

WHY? Why do you write?

That's simple: because it makes me happy and is one of the best escapes from my own overactive 'noggin.  My brain never shuts down except, maybe, when I'm sleeping and writing allows me to forget my own issues and concentrate on those of my characters, even if it's just for a little while.

I hope everyone enjoyed getting to know The Five W’s of Meredith Schorr. Make sure to stop back on Thursday this week to read my review for Meredith's new book, Just Friends With Benefits.

Thank-you so much for joining us today at A Novel Review, Meredith!
