Book Blogger Interview: Bitten By Paranormal Romance

Where are you from?

I was born in Michigan but we moved to South when I was a young child. Were you a big reader as a child? No, but I was as a teen.

 What made you decide to start a book blog?

I wanted a place to share my love of reading with my friends. I basically didn’t really know what a true book blog was when I started.

 What’s your biggest challenge as a book blogger?

Finding time to be able to do other things besides running the blog, the blog takes up at least 5 to 6 hours out of my day and that is without reading.

 Who are some of your favorite authors and why?

Sherillyn Kenyon, I loved all of her pre-Acheron books. Back then she wrote excellent paranormal storylines and kept the romance first and far most.

Eve Langlais, I love humor added to my stories and she knows just how to write humor.

Caris Ronae, she has kind of taken place of my love for Sherillyn Kenyon because she keeps the romance first and she has excellent paranormal world build.

Cynthia Eden and Laura Adrian, their books are always awesome.

 What’s your biggest book/story related pet peeve?

Urban fantasy, straight fiction, and chick lit masquerading as romance!  I have found some authors get so carried away with huge paranormal world building and back story, they forget they’re writing romance. When I am reading romance, even if it’s paranormal, the romance needs to be the main focus of the story.

 If you could only read one genre for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Paranormal romance. I live in what most people would call normal life. I have a few good days and I have tons of bad days, so when I read I don’t want to read ordinary everyday problems that people have in life like you do in contemporary romance or historical romance stories.  I have always found paranormal books carry different storylines and world builds that take you away from ordinary everyday life problems.
