Where are you from?
I am from the Metro Detroit area in Michigan. I love it here, we get all four seasons and have the most beautiful lakes and forests.
Were you a big reader as a child?
I was! My mother was a big reader, and she started me early. I was reading Stephen King when I was in elementary school, but I also loved Sweet Valley High, Christopher Pike and VC Andrews.
What made you decide to start a book blog?
I really happened on blogging by accident. I was looking for books similar to Black Dagger Brotherhood, so I just started Googling, and then I discovered this whole new world. I was reading other blogs and entering giveaways, and it was only a week or two before I decided I needed to be in on the action.
What’s your biggest challenge as a book blogger?
Personally I have a problem with connecting the dots and rambling in my review posts. I can’t even count how many times I look back and wish I had made mention of this incident or that character. I’ll make minor edits to a post until my newsletter sends out, but after it hits the mailboxes I try to leave the posts alone.
Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
This is always such a tough question!! I really love Eve Langlais and Cassandra Carr. They both have such wonderful characters, fantastic steamy heat, and terrific storylines. But I also really love Annie Walls and Emily Goodwin – their zombie books will make me lose sleep because I can’t put them down until I finish!
What’s your biggest book/story related pet peeve?
I think I am pretty easy going in this aspect. Although lately I seem to have a “thing” about the male MCs always having blue eyes. Don’t get me wrong, blue eyes are great, but I’d love to see more brown eyed hunks out there! Other than that, the only thing that really gets under me is repetitiveness. You can tell me something once or twice, but when its every chapter, it gets to be a bit much.
If you could only read one genre for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
Hmmm… Man, that’s rough. Can’t I just make an amalgamation of all my favorite genres and have Paranormal Erotic Romantic Horror?
Thank you so much for having me here, it’s been a lot of fun being on the other side of the interview!
