Who is your "book boyfriend" (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
Ricardo Carlos Manoso, aka Ranger. If you don’t recognize the name, Ranger is one of Stephanie Plum’s love interests in Janet Evanovich’s popular series. He’s tall, dark and handsome, and a classic rogue.
Describe the perfect vacation.
I haven’t had a “real” vacation in years. Living away from family, most of our vacations are visits back home. My favorite travel destinations are Bar Harbor, Maine, or Southern California. I love Hollywood and movie stars!
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
My favorite diversion as a child was books and pens/paper. My mom used to bribe me with the promise of a tablet of lined paper and when her Mont Blanc pen went missing, she knew exactly where to look. My prized possessions were my Nancy Drew books and my Little House on the Prairie box set.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
My favorite authors are Robert Crais, Stuart Woods and Janet Evanovich. I prefer to read series as it allows you to get attached to characters and revisit them again and again.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
Jericho Creegan, the hero of What Lies Beneath, is super sexy, a little bit of a loner and totally taken with the heroine, Amanda Fine. The perfect ringtone for Jericho is Bryan Ferry’s “Slave to Love.”

As a professor of historic literature at a prestigious San Francisco university, Amanda Fine has the perfect job in the perfect city. The new guy and fellow academic at work should be the perfect man for her. Except Amanda’s idea of the perfect man is Jericho, a Harley-riding, leather-wearing, ponytailed, scruffy-bearded, make-your-panties-wet, world-class bad boy. When Amanda struts into his tattoo shop ready for a down-and-dirty seduction, Jericho can only assume the high-falutin’, pearl-wearing beauty is slumming.
When their explosive chemistry starts moving toward something deeper, preconceived notions and assumptions blind Amanda and Jericho. But with love on the line, this not-so-traditional literature professor and not-so-unconventional tattoo artist need to learn to see what lies beneath.
