9. Do you ever read Young Adult fiction and if so, would you ever consider writing a Young Adult novel?
I do, and I would!
10. If Betty Crocker asked you to create your very own signature frosting flavor for their brand, what would it be?
Salted chocolate caramel.
11. Are you a “by the seat of your pants’ ‘ writer or a very methodical, “strict writing schedule” kind of writer?
I hate to admit that I still don’ t know which I am. I do plot and plan and research a ton (perhaps more than I ought). But I write when, where, and however I must.
12. It’ s 1776 in the Colonies and you find yourself struggling to flee the fire that has engulfed your farmhouse. When you make it outside, Ian Somerhalder, as a Colonial Rebel, and Chris Hemsworth, as a British Redcoat, are both reaching out their hands to you, offering you a ride to safety on their horses.
Who. Do You. CHOOSE?
Rebel Ian Red Coat Chris
This has to be the hardest interview question I’ ve ever been asked! Considering that I lived in Yorktown most of my childhood and am a rebel myself, I would probably opt for Ian Somerhalder. But I would do my darnedest to turn Chris Hemsworth to my side!
Now, it’ s time for the Speed Round section of the interview. Please answer with the first word or phrase that comes to mind after reading each word/phrase. Ready? Set. Go!
I started reading Anne Rice when I was in 7th grade. Louis and Lestat were my Edward and Bella.
King George III
Italian or Spanish?
The best kind
Too many to choose
Spandex or Polyester?
Ding! Ding! Ding! Time’ s up. Thanks so much for participating.
After much inebriated and sanctimonious deliberation, I’ve gained much insight into the mysterious mind of Marci Jefferson. It is clear to me that she misses her childhood days practicing Wiccan Magic in her attic and her obsession with wild Historical women points to the Freudian-esque conclusion that she narrowly escaped having to go to Catholic school as a teenager. Marci’s interest in blood and anatomical ailments leads me to believe that she is outraged by how many times Kim Kardashion has gone under the knife, and that she is likely to have a barn of stray black cats in the future. Despite these troubling factors, Marci’s salty and sweet taste preferences and her willingness to admit getting high on book pages in public gives me hope for her extremely talented condition. I do not see Marci as a threat to society and believe that she will be able to keep her page sniffing and caramel eating propensities under control in the event of her mounting fame and success. I APPROVE Marci’s competency to continue writing about Historical women.
Stop by tomorrow, Tuesday, August 18, 2015 for my review of Enchantress of Paris and an GIVEAWAY!

Marci grew up in a nomadic Air Force family, inspiring her interest in culture and travel. But her passion for history sparked while living in Yorktown, Virginia, where locals still tell Revolutionary War tales.
Her friends found it odd when she was the only one who didn’ t complain on field-trips to Jamestown colony, and collecting headstone rubbings wasn’ t exactly considered a cool hobby. She’ ll never admit to hopping the wall at the Colonial Williamsburg Governor’ s Mansion after dark just to explore the moonlit gardens, but she did spend days roaming battlefields and visiting forgotten plantation homes.
Moving from place to place through the years, she kept a love of writing and scores of short stories to herself, eventually setting them aside to pursue the more “practical” path of becoming a Registered Nurse.
Marci survived learning drip-calculations and care-planning, graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University, then applied her writing skills to hospital documentation. Soon she immersed herself in a Quality Assurance nursing career and wrote dry Policy and Procedure manuals. Years and a few children later, she decided such writing lacked the sweeping adventure she longed for.
Marci now writes about remarkable women in history who dared to defy powerful men. She resides in the Midwest with her husband and two children in a house full of books and toys.
