Meet the author: Carrie Pack is the author of Designs On You and a part-time college professor who recently left her job in marketing to actively pursue her writing career. Carrie lives in Florida, which she fondly calls America’s Wang, with her husband and four cats.

"Thanks for having me. My current book is In the Present Tense. It’s a tale of mental illness, time travel and betrayal. And if that doesn’t get you hooked, there’s also a love story driving the narrative as well as a bit of mystery surrounding my main character Miles and the mysterious condition that causes him to time travel."

1) Do you have any strange writing habits?
I’m a pantser; I write by the seat of my pants with minimal outlining. I write at all hours of the day but especially after dark. I always use a computer to write, but sometimes it’s on my couch, other times in bed, but rarely at my desk. I often have one of my four cats covering one or more hands, so typos are a definite possibility.

2) Just as your books will inspire others, what books have inspired you?
I am such a voracious reader, this kind of question is always tough for me to answer. The easy answer is “all of them.” But the ones that have stuck with me are ones I read as a child, like the entire Oz series. L. Frank Baum created such a lush world full of imagination, and it’s a shame so many people have only seen the movies. But I was later inspired by Chaim Potok, early VC Andrews, Ray Bradbury, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Lewis Carroll, Margaret Atwood, Barbara Kingsolver. The list goes on. Maybe I should have just said “all of them.”

3) What do you consider to be your best accomplishment (writing or life)?
My biggest accomplishment is always the last book I’ve finished writing. The act of turning in a manuscript always feels so incredibly rewarding.

4) Where do you see yourself in ten years?
I hope to be still writing books that inspire, entertain and make people think. It wouldn’t hurt to have a best-seller under my belt either.

5) If you had a super power, what would it be?
Time travel. It’s 100% why I wrote In the Present Tense. I wanted to take the stigma placed on mental illness and turn it into a super power.
