Sara Rosett Takes the Fly Survey

Moving_is_murder_flatSara Rosett is a mystery writer on the GCC with me. She writes the MOM ZONE mysteries, the first of which is Moving is Murder.

I love a cozy mystery. Let me curl up with a dead body, a cup of tea and a heroine descended from Miss Marple and I'm happy as ye olde clam. In Moving is Murder, Air Force wife Ellie Avery is a professional organizer; she plans ahead, packs efficiently, and even color-codes her boxes. But nothing in her bag of tricks could prepare her for the secrets that shadow her new neighborhood.

Anyway, Sara's blog is here -- and it's a good one if you're interested in writing mysteries or in finding a good new one to read. And of course, she took the Fly survey!

The Fly on the Wall Survey
questions by me, answers by Sara Rosett

1) If you could be a fly on the wall somewhere, anywhere – where?
A newsroom because I’m fascinated with how news is gathered and filtered.

2) If you could have one superpower, what?
Transportability, the ability to move from one place to another instantly. It would really come in handy for traveling, too!

3) What is your superhero name? Why?
Super Sara—I love the alliteration!

4) Who is your favorite superhero?
Elastigirl, the mom in The Incredibles. First of all, I love Holly Hunter’s voice and I think the movie perfectly captures how moms (even super hero moms) manage the minutia of everyday life while at the same time taking on huge tasks like building self-esteem in their kids and steering them in the right direction.

5) Favorite non-super hero?
The designer in The Incredibles. She’s a riot!

6) Recommend us a superhero movie.
Sky High.

7) If you could turn in to any animal, what? Why?
I have to tell you, a fly wouldn’t be my first choice! I’d have to say a dog because sleeping most of the day sounds pretty good.

8) Do you (or have you ever) read comic books?
No, I’m more of a text girl, myself.

P.S. (from E.) I had to google Sky High. How could I have missed it? Because it sounds FREAKING AWESOME. Thanks, Sara!
Here's the description from IMDB:

It all begins at a secret school in the clouds like none on earth: Sky High, the first and only high school for kids with super-human powers going through crime-fighting puberty. At Sky High, the student body throw flames with their footballs, study Villainy with their Chemistry and are divided into Heroes and Sidekicks instead of jocks and geeks. It's an out-of-this-world yet completely recognizable place where cool gadgetry, rampant bravery and awe-inspiring magical skills mix it up with parental battles, peer pressure and dating trouble--with explosively fun results.
