Frequently asked questions
What was the first romance book you read?
First romance novel was Flame and the Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss. It’s still one of my favorites. She mixed romance with suspense, family and humor. I was hooked at thirteen. Then came the Wolf and the Dove and I found the love of descriptive history mixed with romance. I’ve loved historical romance ever since.
Authors – Hmm, that’s hard because I have discovered so many new indie authors that are truly gifted.
Rosemary Rey has an erotic suspense trilogy that I think, is comparable to Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series.
Lexi Blake and Shayla Black have pushed the erotic envelope, so to speak, and allowed all of us to enjoy a little peek into the D/s world. Charlaine Harris built an entire world of vampires, werewolves and fairies in her Sookie Stackhouse series. And Amanda Quick/Jayne Ann Krentz/Jayne Castle, has taken the reader through Regency, Present Day and Futuristic scenarios that all blended together in an ongoing mystery/romance series. And then there’s Nora Roberts, who has such a flare for storytelling that she
simply looks at the paper and it’s a bestseller!
Do you have a bucket list? What is on it?
Bucket List – I want to learn to belly dance because I think it’s an imaginative dance that has spanned
centuries. I also want to visit Europe – Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Greece, the UK. But more than anything,
I want to know that at the end of my days, I can relive those memories and go peacefully, content that I
tried my damnedest to not just exist, I lived.
Hottest Actor you swoon over?
What actor? Oh that’s easy! Joe Manganiello. He’s tall, dark and incredibly handsome. He’s also not a
pretty boy; he looks like he could handle just about anything and then come home to remind a woman
what she loves about being his woman. lol
Favorite body part of the opposite sex?
Favorite Body part? Well, I’m a heterosexual female who writes romance novels with an erotic twist,
what do you think? lol Actually, the first thing I notice about the opposite sex is the face. Specifically,
eyes. I really don’t take note of the color, but, if there are laugh lines and kindness radiates from the
What’s your sign?
I’m a Gemini. Which is good. I get to have it both ways. LOL
What’s the deal breaker for you in a relationship?
An absolute no-no is cheating. I don’t see a need for it. You’re not happy, tell the person you are in a
relationship with. Either work through it, or move on. It’s the respectful thing to do. Cheaters diminish
the relationship, make themselves and the other person feel bad, and are more likely to cheat again
because I believe they aren’t looking for the perfect mate, but trying to find someone to fill the void in
their own broken self esteem.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Absolutely! I think there is absolutely no reason why the heart and soul can’t recognize their perfect
mate. I’ve been married to my husband for 30 years. We met in high school. And I said, heart and soul,
not sexual organs. lol
For your man - Briefs, boxers?
Facial hair or clean shaven?
Depends on the man, but usually some facial hair.
Plotter or pantser?
Mostly pantser. I have an idea in mind, how I want it to evolve, but the story and characters have a mind
of their own. I love having a little of both. Keeps me focused on the task, but allows my imagination to
Favorite go to drink?
Coffee laced with vanilla caramel creamer or a caramel macchiato
Vanilla or Chocolate?
I like a twist of both best. See? Gemini at work. We are talking ice cream, right? If not, I guess the same
Christmas. If Santa was real, my hubby would be the big guy in the red suit. So I guess
that makes me the Mrs. Claus.
