Genre:  PARANORMAL ROMANCE

Welcome  EJB…I, LH have some questions for you 😉

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. EJB: What did you want to be when you grew up? 

EJB: I have always wanted to be an accomplished author.

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career?

EJB: My elementary school had a writing contest.  We had to write a short story.  I won EJB: 1st place out of the entire 5th grade.

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

EJB: I am an Indie, but I hope to one day find an Agent willing to read my books and direct me to a publisher.

LH: As an Indie Author, I was hesitant about being with a publishing company. If you are an Indie author, would you like to be published by a traditional publisher and if so, why or why not?

EJB: I would love to, but I know how publishers dice your book up.  They take out parts that the writer feels is important to the story line.  I’d hate for that to happen to any of my books.  The characters are my children.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies!      Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

EJB: I’d invite Samuel L. Jackson.  I would not discuss his celebrity.  I want to talk about his family tree.  My 2nd brothers could be his twin – or – doppelgänger.  LOL

LH: I personally think that there is way too much sex and violence everywhere in society these days and it’s everywhere but that Hollywood is one of the biggest contributors. Do you think that society as a whole is subjected to too much sex and violence and are you concerned about it? Ever feel conflicted and if so, why?

EJB: I totally agree.  As a matter of fact, being African American I hate the stereotyping of young black men, in Hollywood.  It’s always street gangs and nothing positive.

But I don’t think Hollywood is the only culprit.  Erotica genre is practically the number one sellers on Amazon.  Whatever happened to a good love story or leaving something to the imagination.

I feel conflicted because in order to succeed we, as writers, have conformed.   That is what inspired me to write my books.  These men are black Nephilim Angels sent to earth to protect God’s so loved humanity.  And although there is sex and violence, in my books, they are both from a spiritual point of view.

LH: I’m a huge softy and by no means a beauty queen… lol but, I truly would want world peace in the blink of an eye if I could make it happen…If you could change one thing in the world, in the blink of an eye, what would it be?

EJB: Racism.  I’d make everyone color blind.  Until we can squash it out, American can never truly be the country we’d love her to be.

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”. How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online?

EJB: It’s extremely important unless you are a well know author.  However, it could be as simple as a blank page, using the right fonts.

I always hated the half-naked man on the cover and when you read the book, he is nothing like the cover.

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?

EJB: As I said, I wrote a short story when I was in the 5th grade.  From that day on I was hooked.  I read everything I could get my hands on, in an effort to learn how to write.  However, I was scared to try.  I didn’t write my 1st book until over fifty years later.  But, once I got started, I couldn’t stop!  I wrote thirteen books in 3 years.

LH: I love to see if I can see myself in a character. What interests you most about a story?

EJB: It depends on the genre.  If it’s a love story, it’s how the relationship develops.  I’m not much on reading a story where there is a lot of game playing.  We have that in real life.

I like to read where people overcome adversities and emotional challenges.  I love a story where both parties in the relations are ‘all in’.

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories?

EJB: My father was larger than life.  I wrote the story as I saw him.  No one was more powerful than he was.  He was the first man who ever loved me unconditionally.  My lead character even bears his name.

I envision Brock’s Redemption on the big screen.  One day!!!

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol Are you working on anything now?

EJB: Of course.  I’m always working on at least 3 books at a time.  Since mine is a series, it’s easier that way.  It allows me to switch back and forth between books, to add or change as the new storyline develops.

LH: I’m working on #6…3 are published and the other 3 are due out this year… How many books have you written? How many have been published?

EJB: 13 have been published.  I’ve just finished Book #14 (ADAM – A New Beginning and Revelations)

LH: I write for fun I don’t even dream of riches…Do you write for fun or money?

EJB: Not so much riches or fun.  I write because I have these Paranormal visions that I need to express.  However, I do appreciate the financial aspect of it.

LH: Some of my family members had a bit of a problem with me writing my first book “A Beautiful Liar” because the character Maggie West is basically me…to a point 😉 They had a problem with the genre and me “putting it all out there” so to speak so I took a pen name. They eventually came around as I have never cared who knows who I am what I’ve done or what they think of me. I’ve never wanted to be famous, just infamous! What has been your biggest problem when it comes to family or friends when writing?

EJB: I haven’t received the family support I would have liked, either.  But I think it’s mostly because most of them aren’t readers.  LOL!

LH: I have never experienced writers block…I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

EJB: As I said before once I decided to start writing my mine and imagination took over.  I eat, sleep and dream new storylines.  None of my 14 books are less than 330 pages and none are repetitive.

LH: I get asked all the time “Do you have any advice for new writers?”… Do you?

EJB: Don’t expect overnight success.  If it is your true calling you won’t be able to avoid it.  Float your own boat and embrace originality.  Think beyond another writer’s concept.

LH: I would not change one thing in my life as I would not be me if I did… If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

EJB: I would embrace my gift earlier.  I am almost 60 and a new author LOL!!!  Wherein the world have I been, all of these years?  I’ll tell you.  I’ve been working in corporate America and making someone else’s dream come true.

LH: If I could go back in time and tell someone something, I’d go back and tell the founding fathers they were doing a few things wrong…If you could go back in time and tell someone something, who would you tell and what would you tell them?

EJB: I’d tell me to make the best of the time I have.  I’d tell me to devote time to writing.  Get a college education right out of high school.

I’d tell me that self-preservation is the greatest law of nature.

LH: I would freak out if someone contacted me and said they wanted to make one of my books or my series of book into a movie as I am really very shy in person and I’d probably go into hiding. I don’t think I could handle it. How would you handle it? Who would be the first person you told?

EJB: I am not shy in the least bit.  As a matter of fact, I am overly extroverted.  My twin sister tells me all the time that I’ve never met a person I call a stranger. 

I live to see my books on the big screen.  I wouldn’t freak out, but I’d shout for joy!  I’d tell my twin and my oldest sisters.  They are my biggest supporters.

Thank you for that heartfelt and interesting interview EJB…Now… for the fun stuff!

Favorite Beverage?  Peach Ice Tea with Lemon.
Exercise or Bubble Bath?  Exercise and then Bubble Bath!  LOL!!!
Favorite Color? Any variation of….Peach
Take out or Dine in? Dine in.  Meet more people that way.
Camping or Hotel? Hotel, no doubt.  I ain’t trying to sleep anywhere that there isn’t air conditioning and/or heat.
Sports or Chocolate? Chocolate
Dogs or Cats?  Dogs
Favorite Food?  Steak
Favorite Song?  Amazing Grace
Favorite Movie?  Imitation of Life
Favorite Car? Trailblazer
Sex or Chocolate? (The answer “Both” is totally acceptable 😉 Sex; especially if it’s a chocolate brotha!

And now for the essay part of the interview 😉

If you could go anywhere for a week, with anyone you wanted and no one would ever find out about it…where would you go, what would you do and who would you take?

EJB: I’d go to a romantic tropical Island, with my first love.  I’d like to see if those same old feelings were still there.  Or if they could be rekindled.

Unfortunately, that’s not possible.  He’s long passed on.  But if I could…

Genre:  Paranormal Romance/Suspense

Welcome JJD…I, LH have some questions for you 😉

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. What did you want to be when you grew up?

JJ: An astronaut.  Or Han Solo (who flew in space, so I guess he counts as an astronaut, too)

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career?

JJ: I’m kind of like you.  I can’t point to any one literary influence.  Although as I read through my writing, I do often see elements of whatever I was reading/obsessed with at the time it was written.

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

JJ: Self-published, hoping to be discovered myself!

LH: As an Indie Author, I was hesitant about being with a publishing company. If you are an Indie author, would you like to be published by a traditional publisher and if so, why or why not?

JJ: I would love to be published by a traditional publisher and see my books in every bookstore, etc.  Trying to market my books myself is incredibly difficult.  But I do like that I have total control over everything, as well.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies!  Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

JJ: My paternal grandfather, Alfred DiBenedetto.  He died before I was born, and it’s only recently that I even found out what his proper legal name was (although I’m pretty sure it was actually Alfredo rather than Alfred before he came to America).  I’d rather get to know him than meet any famous person.  And I don’t think there’s any topic I would want to be off limits.

LH: I personally think that there is way too much sex and violence everywhere in society these days and it’s everywhere but that Hollywood is one of the biggest contributors.  Do you think that society as a whole is subjected to too much sex and violence and are you concerned about it? Ever feel conflicted and if so, why?

JJ: I agree completely.  Sometimes I think that the old Hollywood production code that limited what could be shown actually was a creative benefit rather than a hindrance.  It forced Hollywood to find ways to get ideas across without showing endless parades of nudity or rivers of bloodshed. 

I definitely keep it in mind in my own writing.  The worst violence in my book is off-screen or implied rather than shown.  And the sex that happens is between two loving partners, and is pretty non-explicit.

LH: I’m a huge softy and by no means a beauty queen… lol but, I truly would want world peace in the blink of an eye if I could make it happen…If you could change one thing in the world, in the blink of an eye, what would it be?

JJ: I’m along the same lines as you.  I’d say an end to cruelty, not just between one nation and another, but between governments and their people, and between individuals as well.

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”. How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online?                                 

JJ: I wish they were less important, but I do think that people still place a lot of importance on that first impression.  I love the covers for my books; I had them hand-painted by an artist and I think she did an amazing job.  But some reviewers have said that they gave them the impression that these are children’s books, or otherwise books they wouldn’t pick up off the shelf.  So I can see that the cover is still a big deal.

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?                             

JJ: I have always wanted to write.  The first time I remember really writing fiction was in high school.  I had a (dreadful) story published in the school’s literary magazine.  I kept on writing lots of page 1’s of stuff, but ten or twelve years ago, I finally wrote a novel-length work, which was the first draft of “Dream Student”.  It wasn’t very good, and it sat on my computer until last year.  Then, one of my good friends sold her novel, and that inspired me.  If she could do it, why couldn’t I do it, too?  I went back to that first draft, rewrote it from word one, and before I knew it, it had turned into four books (with a fifth in progress right now).

LH: I love to see if I can see myself in a character. What interests you most about a story?                                                           

JJ: A lot of different things.  For me the writing style is really important.  There’s no one style that I especially fall for, but it has to make me feel comfortable.  I tend to like stories told in the first person; that helps me identify with the character.

I’m also very plot-driven; I want to know “what happens next”, and sometimes I’ll peek to the end (I’m also a spoiler junkie with my favorite TV shows and movies).

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories?

JJ: Sometimes it’s exactly like that for me.  And sometimes it’s just a single idea.  With the Dream books, it was just the concept of, “what if you could see other people’s dreams?” and what kind of problems would that lead to?  That’s how the plot of the first book developed.  Sara is seeing horrible crimes, but she has no physical evidence or even reliable facts she could go to the police with, so she’s basically forced to hunt for the killer herself.

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol Are you working on anything now?                                                                             

JJ: I’m halfway through the fifth book of the Dream series.  Each book has brought a new challenge for Sara, and this one has possibly the toughest one of all – she’s facing someone else who can see dreams just like she can, but this other dreamer isn’t using her power for good, as Sara is…

I’m also working on a adventure/romance/comedy that’s I’d put in the same category as “Romancing the Stone”.

LH: I’m working on #6…3 are published and the other 3 are due out this year… How many books have you written? How many have been published?            

I’ve written four books so far, all in the Dream series, and they’re all published and available now.

LH: I write for fun I don’t even dream of riches…Do you write for fun or money?

JJ: I’d love the riches, but I wrote first of all just to get the stories out of my head.  The characters took on a life of their own and pretty much demanded I keep writing about them.

LH: Some of my family members had a bit of a problem with me writing my first book “A Beautiful Liar” because the character Maggie West is basically me…to a point 😉 They had a problem with the genre and me “putting it all out there” so to speak so I took a pen name. They eventually came around as I have never cared who knows who I am what I’ve done or what they think of me. I’ve never wanted to be famous, just infamous! What has been your biggest problem when it comes to family or friends when writing?

JJ: I haven’t had any problems from family or friends; they’ve all been very supportive (fingers crossed that it stays that way!)

LH: I have never experienced writers block…I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

JJ: I’ve had it for a few days at a stretch.  I didn’t do anything special to overcome it, it just passed on its own.

LH: I get asked all the time “Do you have any advice for new writers?”… Do you?

JJ: Sure!  First, just do it.  Write.  Don’t think about writing, or plan to write.  Just write.  Second, be patient.  As I’ve been reminded every day since my self-publishing adventure began, “it’s a marathon, not a sprint.”

LH: I would not change one thing in my life as I would not be me if I did… If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

JJ: If I could figure out the one thing to change so that I’d be less shy and often terrified in social situations, I’d change whatever that thing was.  But I doubt there is one thing that would do it.

LH: If I could go back in time and tell someone something, I’d go back and tell the founding fathers they were doing a few things wrong…If you could go back in time and tell someone something, who would you tell and what would you tell them?

JJ: Mine would be a lot more personal.  I’d go back and tell my father to never have that first drink.

LH: I would freak out if someone contacted me and said they wanted to make one of my books or my series of book into a movie as I am really very shy in person and I’d probably go into hiding. I don’t think I could handle it. How would you handle it? Who would be the first person you told?

JJ: I’d be thrilled beyond words.  I would tell my wife first.  And then I’d call my friend who’s an intellectual property lawyer and get his advice.

Thank you for that honest and sweet interview JJ….Now… for the fun stuff!

Favorite Beverage? RC Cola

Exercise or Bubble Bath? Bubble Bath!

Favorite Color? Green

Take out or Dine in? Take out…I could go for a nice portion of chicken tikka masala right now…

Camping or Hotel? Hotel.  Why would you ever camp?

Sports or Chocolate? Watching sports, if it’s the Giants and they’re winning, I’d take that over chocolate.

Dogs or Cats? I love them both.  Right now I’m a cat person, or more accurately, a cat-owned person.

Favorite Food? Fondue.

Favorite Song? Steppin’ Out by Joe Jackson

Favorite Movie? Almost Famous

Favorite Car? Doc Brown’s DeLorean

Sex or Chocolate? (The answer “Both” is totally acceptable 😉 One, then the other (not saying which order!)

And now for the essay part of the interview 😉

If you could go anywhere for a week, with anyone you wanted and no one would ever find out about it…where would you go, what would you do and who would you take?

I’m going to have to give you the honest but boring answer.  I’d take my wife to Paris.  I’ve been there and loved it utterly, and she’s never been.  She loves art and studied art history, so I’d take her to the Louvre and the Orsay and probably visit Versailles.  We’d go to the opera, and go to Mass at Norte Dame, and walk along the Seine at all hours of the day and night.

Today’s Tease…Bryce Evans

Welcome! Pull up a seat and enjoy a chat with “Today’s Tease” Bryce Evans

Your Name or Pen Name you use:  Bryce Evans

Title of the book you are promoting:  Perfect Reflection (Shifter Justice)

 Link to purchase your Book: http://www.amazon.com/Perfect-Reflection-Shifter-Justice-ebook/dp/B00CENVNWK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1366558197&sr=1-1&keywords=perfect+reflection

 Genre:  Paranormal Romance, Menage

Welcome BE ….I, LH have some questions for you 😉

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. What did you want to be when you grew up?

BE: That is easy.  I wanted to be a cop.  I love investigating everything and figuring out who done it.  That is probably why I write about law enforcement in my books.  I like the mystery not knowing who did it or how they did it.

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career?

BE: Well I have always dreamed about being a writer and never had the nerve until I started reading Jana Leigh’s books.  I got to know her on Facebook and told her that I had always dreamed of writing.  She was so funny she said “Oh yea, well send me a little something.”  I thought what the hell do I have to loose.  I will never see this woman and she doesn’t live near me so I wrote a brief little bit about a woman who is a werewolf but also much, much more.  I sent it to her thinking I will never hear from this woman again.  Funny because she sent me a contract the next day and told me to finish the book.  I couldn’t believe it.  I sat down and wrote and wrote until I finally finished the book.  I sent it to her and that was my first book:  The Trinity: The Ashland Pack.  Who would have thunk it, but dreams do come true.

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

BE: Thank God I was a published author.  I so admire all of you who can do it all.  I wouldn’t know where to start.  I never would have followed my dream if Jana had not found me.  Really all of the Indie writers are such great writers too.  Even with a publisher it is still hard to get your book noticed.  So I applaud the authors who can do that.

LH: As an Indie Author, I was hesitant about being with a publishing company. If you are an Indie author, would you like to be published by a traditional publisher and if so, why or why not?

BE: Well thank goodness I didn’t have to do that.  Again I do applaud those Indie Authors.  The struggle of doing it all is beyond me.  You have to sell it, promote it, and live it everyday.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies!  Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

BE: Hard question since there are so many I could name, but I would ask my mother to talk to me again.  She has passed away and didn’t live to see this dream come true.  I would tell her all that I have done so far then ask what she thought.  I know my mother and she would have been thrilled and would have purchased all of my books.  The questions I would ask are endless.  So many unanswered questions of daily life and past questions of what she would have done or did.  My mom was the glue and the rock that held my family together.  She is truly missed everyday.

LH: I personally think that there is way too much sex and violence everywhere in society these days and it’s everywhere but that Hollywood is one of the biggest offenders. Do you think that society as a whole is subjected to too much sex and violence and are you concerned about it? Which form of media do you think is the worst offender?

BE: Well I guess I’m just as guilty as anyone since I do put all of those in my books.  I do ask you to be 18 years are older before you read my books, but we are our biggest problem.  We want to teach our kids to do the right thing but then we allow them to watch TV where people our murdered, raped, and beat everyday.  We try to watch what they watch but you can’t watch our children everyday.  We have to pray that we do enough to help turn them into good people and one day great parents.  I tell you, my kids love to play video games.  Lord have you ever watched them. I think they have to be the worst. I used to watch a lot of TV but now I read.  I never knew how much I loved it until now.  I can loose myself inside the characters and dream of worlds that hold the sex and violence but it feels different to me when I read about it.  It takes a lot of the sting out of it instead of watching it.  I hope that makes since.  But I do agree that we do watch too much TV instead of going outside playing with our kids.

LH: I’m a huge softie and by no means a beauty queen, but I truly would have world peace in the blink of an eye if I could. If you could change one thing in the world, in the blink of an eye, what would it be?

BE: Peace on earth where everyone believes in Jesus.  I really do believe that and pray for it everyday.  I pray for those that are lost will be found.  Now I’m very much a realist but I do pray for it.  I pray that there is hope out there for the people who can’t go on and need help but has no where to find it.

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”.  How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online?

BE: Well I do believe that the cover is what gets you to read the prolog.  I always look at the cover to get an understanding about what the book is about.  So only in opinion from a reader’s point of view, yes I do think the cover is an important part of the consumer buying your product.  I also believe if you are a successful writer and have already got a great following your name alone can get people to read your book.  I believe that is every author’s wish.

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?

BE: Yes I have always wanted to write and I did write little things here and there when the mood struck me.  However, only later in life did that dream come true.  I know that this saying so funny, but it is true that dreams never die.

LH: I love to see if I can see myself in a character.  What interests you most about a story?

BE: I really have to say the romance of it gets me more then anything.  I’m a sucker for love and trying to get together with the characters. Maybe every woman’s fantasy. 

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories?

BE: Ill be honest most of the time I’m in my car alone driving down the road and a certain song can come on and it is strange but a character and a plot forms in my head.  I’m a people watcher and I think about certain people and then think about them in real life or in a place with werewolves and vampires exist then I put the story into everyday life.  Just about anything can bring a story into my head.  In my real job I see a lot of heartache and bad people so even though I put those types of people in my books, they always come out on top.  I know that’s not real life, but that’s why it’s my story and in my book I can do anything.  

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol   Are you working on anything now?

BE: I’m always working on something.  At the moment I’m writing book 2 of the Trinity series.  Mace and Lexy: The Ashland Pack should be finished soon.  Then I will be writing #2 in the Once Forgotten Twice Loved series.  I love series if you haven’t noticed.  I have a strictly romance mystery book in my head and it keeps coming up when I’m in the shower or driving down the road so it looks like it wants it’s due and I think I need to give it to them. 

LH: I’m working on #6…3 are published and the other 3 are due out this year. How many books have you written? How many have been published?

BE: I have written three books and published all three.  I co-authored my latest with Jana Leigh.  Lord the woman can write a mean bad guy.  I love Jana to death and she gave me my chance.  The name of that book is “Perfect Reflection.” 

LH: I write for fun. Do you write for fun or money?

BE: Well I love it and I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t fun for me.  Hey life is hard enough and I already have a stressful job so I do this for fun, but I do like the money too and I watch to see what is selling.  Lets be honest if it’s not selling then what is the use if nobody reads my stories.  So I would have to say I do this for both.

LH: I have never experienced it. I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

BE: Yes I have, but I read this book that helped me so much with writers block.  It is called “Tell Don’t Show” by James Lofquist.  The book was great for me and helped me so much.  I can’t recommend this book more even if it isn’t mine.  James is an author and teacher and came up with this technique.  So if you have problems with writers block then read this short book.  It is straight to the point without all the junk in between book.  I truly recommend it.  I wish I could get in touch with the name just to let him know how much he has helped my writing. 

LH: I get asked all the time “Do you have any advise for new writers?”… Do you?

BE: Yes, and I quote the book “Pooh’s Grand Adventure, The search for Christopher Robin.”

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”  It stuck with me and I think it fits when giving advice to people no matter what you are trying to achieve in life.   You have to believe you can do it, and know that you are stronger than you think, and a lot smarter then you give yourself credit for.  So follow your dreams and when they try to knock you off, get back up and dust yourself off and keep trying.  Even when you get those bad reviews and you will trust me.  But if it is your dream then follow that advise and you should do just fine.

LH: I would not change one thing in my life as I would not be me if I did…If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

BE: Well I wasted some of my life day dreaming saying tomorrow I will do that and never did, but it has lead me to this part in my life and I think I will keep it.  I’m happy and I love my husband and children so no I wouldn’t change it.  I did jump out of an airplane one time and I thought my life was ending, but hey that is another story.  LOL

Now…For the Fun Stuff 😉

Favorite Beverage?  Diet FREAKING COKE, THEY WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME.

Exercise or Bubble Bath?  Bubble bath

Favorite Color?  Blue

Sports or Chocolate?  Sports woman, what else is there.

Dogs or Cats?  Well I thought I would never have a cat now I have 2 but I do love dogs.  Cats I guess.

Favorite Food?  Mexican

Favorite Song?  Too many to name but I’m an eighties girl so I love all that type of music and country.

Favorite Movie?  Well you may laugh but every time the damn movie comes on I watch it.  “Jaws” but I love Pretty Woman too so what does that say about me.

Favorite Car?  SUV that has three seats and can carry my crew around.

Sex or Chocolate? (The answer “Both” is totally acceptable 😉

Hands down it is SEX.  I could go forever without eating chocolate but not sex.  Got to have it and I do love to write it.

If you could go anywhere for a week, with anyone you wanted and no one would ever find out about it…where would you go and who would you take?

BE: To a beach that has the clearest water and I would take my I pad and my husband. LOL
