Hello, ENALR community!
Last weekend, Cyndi invited me to join ENALR, posting every other Tuesday, and hey, that starts today. I said “Sure! I’d love to!” even though I was out of town until Sunday night and working double shifts all week and on a tight deadline for my November release. Which really tells you everything about me.
I’m totally Cyndi’s b****.
Actually, I said yes because I know most of these authors, personally or by reputation, and they’re a fantastic bunch of people. And maybe it would mean I could get some of their books early. *iz sneaky*
Some of you know me already, from my own blog or Supernatural Sisters (which is about the fantastic TV show Supernatural, not the real supernatural ) or Facebook or Twitter or Goodreads. But many of you don’t, so let me introduce myself. Beyond, you know, as Cyndi’s b****.
I live in south central Pennsylvania with my husband and a nearly 16-year-old daughter dubbed “The Anti-Teenager” and a 12-year-old daughter following in her sister’s footsteps. They are also dubbed Number One and Number Two, and I sometimes post about them. They always roll their eyes when I ask if I can blog something they said or did. Number One happily let me tell about the time she used powdered sugar in her Alfredo sauce instead of flour, but Number Two still won’t let me post…well, she won’t let me!
I grew up in Western Massachusetts so I’m a die-hard New Englander and rabid Patriots fan, despite moving to central NY my senior year of high school, then living in Ohio, Michigan, and Maryland/DC before winding up here. I love football fans, unless you like the Jets. And, since my husband is from Cleveland, I’m contractually obligated to hate Pittsburgh, too. Sorry.
I’m also passionate about certain TV shows (ref. Supernatural above; also Firefly and about half a dozen current shows, to a lesser degree) and movies and music. (Only the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Jason Manns, though. Jason has an incredible voice you should go check it out right now I mean it, I’ll wait.)
I know, right?
Anyway. When I’m not working as a therapy chiropractic assistant or running the family or gushing about the above-mentioned passions, I write. This year is a great year for me, as my first romantic adventure for Carina Press, Fight or Flight, was very well received when it was released in March. My next one, Behind the Scenes, is coming out at the end of October, followed immediately by my first full-length paranormal romance (also an adventure!), Under the Moon, with Entangled Publishing. I’ve been published since 2000, but this is the first time I’ve faced writing from scratch with a contracted deadline. So far, I’ve managed to be more excited than nervous. Well, until I say I’m not nervous. Then I full-on panic for about a minute and a half.
I look forward to chatting with you all, and I hope I manage to come up with something interesting enough to have you drop by every other Tuesday (as well as all the other days with the other, fantastic posting people!).
Thanks for having me!
