#Hello2016 My Name is..


GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!
OUR WINNER IS ANITA POWERS


and I write romance, erotica, suspense, noir and whatever piece of fiction grabs my attention and demands to be written. You probably already knew that, didn't ya? Well, I bet you don't know that...


1) my blog started as an online journal in September 2010;

2) for at least the first year my daughter Casey was my only reader/follower and she'd hound me for a new post when I fell behind;

3) the post that has gotten the most views, ever, was "EROTICA BLOG DAY" - I have the sauciest followers - but my clean romances sell better;
4) I often draft posts while sitting in my underwear in front of the tv, snacking [who doesn't really? isn't that why they developed the internet]; 

5) but I imagine myself sitting at an antique desk in a beautiful den with a glass of wine at my elbow - in my underwear.

  3. I've been using my sister's library card for the past 10 or so years. For seven years I lived in an unincorporated area and it would have been about $250 per year to join the closest library. Even though I now live in a town with a library I use hers because I have 80-100 books on hold under her account at anyone time.

  4. Secrets.... I am a pretty open person and can't think of any 'real' secrets. I go from series to series on Netflix to avoid thinking about reality too much. There's that. :D candkmason@gmail

  22. I have misophonia though people claim it isn't real. I'm very hard to piss off as a person so I think it makes more sense for why I'm freaking out on someone over something like eating loudly. Since you could break my hand and I wouldn't even get too mad.

  31. Hmmm, I am OCD. Not something I advertise. But it does manifest.

    For example: We have three daughters, each has (NOT including our last name) three names. We have three more names, each, picked-out for boys and girls; again, all with three. Our anniversary has three 8's in it.

    ... can't get away from threes. ^_^
