Today we’re chatting with: Heather Baker Weidner
Most cherished beach memory: I that I grew up in Virginia Beach. The beach was just part of life. I went to Kempsville High School, hung out at Milton's Pizza and Chic's Beach, and went to Virginia Wesleyan College. I had a great childhood. My dad was a police officer for over forty-two years, and I grew up with all of the stories from VBPD's finest.
Recommend a Beach Read: My beach bag is always filled with fun reads. There are way too many to list, but I like Michael Connelly, Chris Grabenstein, Claire Cook, David Baldacci,...
My favorite beach memory: is of the sand that was always everywhere. I could never seem to get it out of my car. I didn't realize how much I missed the beach until we moved to Central Virginia.
Author I would like to sip Mi Tais with: Hemingway or Fitzgerald. It would be a fun party.
Worst non-writing job I ever had: I planned special programs for a company that hosted band trips. One summer, I had to go to band camp as an adult. Not fun.
Favorite quote or saying: "Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astair did, but backwards and in high heels."
Song that you dance to when no one else is watching: Unfortunately, there are way too many of these to list too..."Goodie Two-shoes," "Karma Chameleon," "Wake me up before you Go Go," There's a pattern there. What can I say? I'm an 80s girl...(Ed note: I dare you NOT to dance along with this one!)
Three of your favorite things:
Two secret vices: I love Elvis Presley, and sometimes, I will eat popcorn for breakfast.
One pet peeve: I cannot stand when people leave their carts in parking spaces instead of corralling them where they belong.
