Business or Pleasure 
5 Easy Questions is an interview is designed to be quick, easy,
and fun. Today’s guest is Ashley Ladd.
What is your go-to meal to order when you dine out? Your favorite
“I know it will hit the spot” item.
Tijuana Flats salad with black beans and lots of salsa. Either
that or Tijuana Flats chicken chimichanga wet with verde sauce.
What were you like when you were in school?
Pretty shy and introverted. At least I thought so then, but looking
back, although I wasn’t in the In Crowd, I had a lot of friends. Still, I was the
high school newsletter co-editor, media news reporter, and 2nd lieutenant on our
Flag Corps squad. I was an A-B student without trying too hard. When I got into
college and actually tried, I was almost a straight A student.
Would you rather stay inside and watch snow falling, or get
out in it and build a snowman?
I love to go outside and build snowmen. Sadly, I live in South
Florida (which I just saw termed as “America’s wang”). I’m from Cincinnati,
Ohio, and about ten years ago when I went home to visit my Dad in February,
there was a pitiful snowfall. However, it was the best I’d seen in years, so I went
outside and built this pathetic little snowman. Before I knew it, Dad was outside
helping me. I haven’t had so much fun in ages. I really wish I could find the pictures
we took of our snowman building adventure.
What is your favorite quote?
Live long and prosper (Spock – I’m a huge Trekkie)
What was your favorite book as a child?
I loved Nancy Drew mysteries. When I was about 12 I discovered
Harlequin romances and loved those, too. I can’t recall the name of any one particular

Guy Rogers is extremely attracted to his new realtor, Tom Beaudreaux.
As a passionate vegetarian and animal activist, he’s ecstatic that Tom is a kindred
soul. In fact, Tommy’s family owns the most popular barbecue restaurant in town
and if his family has their way, he’ll manage the new location.
When Guy finds out that Tommy eats meat and his family owns a
restaurant that is a monument to eating meat, he’s livid and doesn’t know if he
wants anything else to do with Tommy.
But then Guy’s life gets crazy –his dad’s paranoia blossoms into
violent dementia, he gets arrested for picketing a doggy mill, and then he winds
up in even more legal trouble. When Tommy sticks by him through all his trouble
and does everything he can to help him, Guy wonders if he’s been too narrow-minded.
Perhaps he can learn to live with people who have opposite views.
