Who is your "book boyfriend" (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
Gosh, I’ve had so many “book boyfriends” it’s kind of hard to pick (it’s also hard to remember them all—bad me!). I guess the one that stands out the most, though, would be John Matthew from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I’ve liked him from the first moment I read about him and loved, loved, LOVED his book (Lover Mine). Of course, now that I think about it, I drooled a lot over Edward Cullen, too (the Twilight series introduced me to paranormal romance and I was HOOKED!).
Describe the perfect vacation.
The perfect vacation is one where I don’t have to cook or clean. Haha! I love going on cruises because I can visit multiple places and only unpack once (the hubby and I already have three booked within the next 17 months). But I would love to stay at a place on the beach so I can sit on the porch (or open the windows) and listen to the waves at night. Provided it’s warm, that is!
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
For my tenth birthday I got a Polaroid Swinger camera (see this ad for it on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7k2uwJmwxo). I LOVED that thing. Instant pictures!! Yeah, now it’s a joke, but back in 1967 it was a miracle! I think I used up a whole roll on my birthday just taking pictures of my friends. It was the best birthday present, ever. Well… until my fifteenth. That’s when I got my telescope (I loved that thing, too and still have it).
What are your hobbies?
Lately, all I do is write and read (because it’s fun, what can I say?). But I have been known to crochet a lot in the past. I’ve made so many afghans, I ran out of people to give them to. Same with pot holders and doilies. I crocheted a tablecloth for my friend that took me a couple of years to complete. Thought I was going to go blind (or get arthritis). I pretty much quit after that project (except for crocheting the occasional scarf). But I’m sure if one of my kids ever decides to get married and have kids, I’ll be crocheting a blanket for the little one!
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I like reading different stuff: paranormal romance, romantic suspense, thriller, horror. Normally, my favorites are in third person with multiple points of view. I say normally, because I do have some favorite series that are in first person (urban fantasy or YA paranormal). I like some danger in my books; they just make for a fun read. And the romances I read must end in a happy ever after (no cliffhangers, please!!).
