Reading The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook, Kauai Revealed, by Andrew Doughty. Her friend is getting married in Kauai in September and she's going for the wedding.

Her favorite author--Mary Higgins Clark. She reads her books as soon as they come out , in one sitting, which, she said, kind of sucks because then it's over!

If she were to write a novel of her own it would be about the Greek island, Chios, where her family is from and where she visits every summer.

Check out her blog at www.thrudaphneseyes.blogspot.com, which she's just started. The first entry is about donuts--she just finished pastry school.
