What was the inspiration for the THEATRE ILUMINATA series?
Bertie entered into my head with her full name (Beatrice Shakespeare Smith) and the mental picture of her surrounded by fairies flying on wires.
Your books are full of great quotes from classic Shakespearean plays. Do you have any favorite quotes?
I love almost all the super-snarky quotes from Taming of the Shrew.
What can readers look forward to in the 3rd book?
More of the love triangle between Nate, Ariel, and Bertie, of course. More family issues, plus some surprising complications on the road back to the theater!

Chocolate ganache cupcakes, lemon-glazed apple pie, cheesecake, strawberry tarts, fudge, orange soda, and hot chocolate topped with whipped cream.
If the THEATRE ILUMINATA had a soundtrack, what songs would be included?
There is actually a song called "Eyes Like Stars" by a band called Faulter, plus "The Assassins' Tango" from the Mr. & Mrs. Smith soundtrack (that's Ariel and Bertie's tango.) Other than those two, the soundtrack from Cirque du Soleil's Corteo and Kooza were favorites!
