I get a lot of funny questions from readers about my insane deities from the IMMORTAL MATCHMAKERS, INC., SERIES. But the one thing they don’t ask is where the inspiration for my gods came from. Why don’t they ask? Honestly, I think they’re afraid of the answer. Were you on a crazy bender in Vegas, Mimi? Were you tripping on something illegal? Did your mother drop you on your head? All fair hypotheses! Especially given Cimil, the Goddess of the Underworld—a constant character throughout the series. She loves garage sales, hates clowns, is afraid of bugs, and is constantly trying to blow us all up. Oh, and she has a pet unicorn that no one but her can see. But I’m sorry to say that the inspiration for this series wasn’t induced by illegal substances or a bop on the head. The Immortal Matchmakers is a spinoff of my bestselling ACCIDENTALLY YOURS SERIES (seven works total).

I’ve put together my top five books that I’m beside myself with anticipation waiting for! Sarah MacLean’s Wicked and the Wallflower – THE DAY OF THE DUCHESS was my favorite read of 2017, and getting Felicity’s story is enough to have me jumping up and down with glee. And that COVER! June cannot come around soon enough! Lisa Gardner’s Look for Me – Lisa Gardner is an author I’ve been reading since I was in junior high. Her book The Perfect Husband has stayed with me through the years and I reread on a semi-regular basis (and, for real, I’ll never look at my closet the same way after that book). I’m really excited for her to delve back in D.D. Warren’s life with this one! Jacqueline Carey’s Starless – This is another author I’ve been reading for over a decade. Her Kushiel’s Legacy series was phenomenal, and everything she’s done since has that same epic quality that’s so very relatable despite the truly outstanding adventures some of the characters go on. And…
