Re: Amazon Heat (8:34pm January 24, 2012):

Re: Chosen By Fate (8:29pm October 9, 2011):

Re: The Dragon And The Pearl (9:27pm September 14, 2011):

Re: Dying For Justice (8:06am June 28, 2011):

Re: Play Me (7:56am March 29, 2011):
I agree about the language. It makes the love/sex scenes coarse & vulgar. Otherwise within the context of a story - why not?

A quiet house & a cup of tea. The wine would just knock me out. So best not during the day.

Re: Beneath The Night Tree (2:31am February 18, 2011):

Here in Australia we are experiencing weather & floods & disaster that would break most. Australians are tough & resilient. When we get knocked down, we come back up fighting. I live in the town of Toowoomba, QLD that first experienced the disastrous, deadly flash floods that then swept on to other communities. We have picked ourselves up & asked what can we do to help? We grieve, we hurt, we mourn & we look to the future.

Re: The 1st Wife (4:35pm June 9, 2010):

I like men in uniform - firemen, police, etc. Good men doing an amazing job.

Re: Down By The River (2:16am January 31, 2010):
My daughter introduced me to Terry Pratchett. Brilliantly bizarre.
Re: Hasta La Vista, Lola! (6:33pm January 29, 2010):
I can only imagine how hard it is to research & write. Thank you for the insight.
Re: The Secret Of Joy (3:39pm January 28, 2010):
Every family has some sort of secret & it makes for an intriguing and interesting read.
Re: Forbidden Heat (3:28pm January 27, 2010):
Fabulous insight!! I did wonder. I am always amazed by the amount of knowledge that is out there in the world just waiting to be discovered.
Re: Hold On Tight (10:01pm January 26, 2010):
I definitely look things up. I don't find I lose momentum in the story. In fact I feel it enriches it.
Re: Down River (11:10pm January 25, 2010):
I have always considered Alaska as a true natural beauty. A great setting for a book.
Re: Down By The River (5:20pm January 24, 2010):
I do love series. I always read them in order & savour every word.
Re: Rogue Stallion (5:26pm January 23, 2010):
WOW!! That's sad. Though I do recognize some of the author's, I could not tell you what they are up to now.
Re: Maya's Gold (5:19pm January 22, 2010):
Fabulous. Thank you!!
Re: Dead Head (3:29pm January 21, 2010):
Love the dress. I hope you feel like a million dollars in it!!
Re: Love Story (5:35pm January 20, 2010):
A loss to the world.
Re: Succubi Like It Hot (5:35pm January 20, 2010):
In my experience road trip equals unpredictability. You've got to love that!!!
Re: A Bolt From The Blue (10:00pm January 19, 2010):
I enjoyed reading this. I wondered about authors leaving off projects, characters, ideas & then picking them up later on & reworking.
Re: Getting Lucky (4:36pm January 18, 2010):
I'm with everyone else, series are the best. Characters become like old friends.
Re: Forbidden Falls (6:19pm January 17, 2010):
Apart from my computer which I could NOT live without, I don't have any techno devices. I don't miss them & I really don't want them.
Re: The Keepers Of Sulbreth (6:19pm January 15, 2010):
I ca answer yes to all of the questions. My problem in the past has been character names that I would NEVER be able to pronounce out loud. Trying to be too, too clever with names annoys me.
Re: Forget Me Not (10:29pm January 13, 2010):
What an eventful time. Thank you for sharing.
Re: Sleep No More (5:26pm January 12, 2010):
I don't know anyone who sleep walks. It would be terrifying.
Re: Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy (6:47pm January 11, 2010):
Thank you for the fabulous insight. I am a massive Jane Austen fan as well.
Re: Come Hell Or High Water (5:50pm January 10, 2010):
My perfect day: no hassles, no dramas, a little indulgence & sanity prevails.
Re: Not My Daughter (6:15pm January 8, 2010):
Fabulous insight. I imagine there would be a lot of research & fact checking even with the familiar.
Re: Sizzle (6:13pm January 8, 2010):
Villains definitely shape the heroes & often drag them down to their level. Tarnished heroes are a real possibility if they want to win.
Re: My Dearest Mr. Darcy (10:15pm January 7, 2010):
'Gone With The Wind' when Scarlett is forced to deliver Melanie's baby is my favorite & the most memorable. Prissy is the star.
Re: Come Hell Or High Water (10:05pm January 6, 2010):
I have never had a mistake turn out well. Just mistakes!!
Re: Deadtown (10:02pm January 6, 2010):
Vulnerabilities & which "kryptonite" kills which creature & how. I enjoy author interpretations of supposedly known 'facts'.
Re: Fugitive (6:29pm January 5, 2010):
What a great interview. Now you've done it, I need to find out more.
Re: Dangerous Highlander (5:50pm January 4, 2010):
Thanks for the insight. I had no idea. The next time I pick up a book I will be much more aware of the title issue. It seems though that the Author should have much more control & say.
Re: Shattered (9:04pm January 1, 2010):
My goals tend to be more daily. Today I will do this or finish that.
Re: Deadly Liaisons (4:58pm December 31, 2009):
I want guys with bite. Both werewolves & vampires are on my list of HOT!!!! I would choose werewolves for pure, raw energy.
Re: Angel Lane (5:39pm December 30, 2009):
I don't make New Year's resolutions. I never keep them, so why set myself up for failure.
Re: What I Did For Love (6:26pm December 29, 2009):
The Wild Things by David Eggers & Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
Re: Breakfast In Bed (6:20pm December 28, 2009):
What a great introduction to the book & characters. My interest is certainly piqued.
Re: Kitty's House Of Horrors (5:48pm December 27, 2009):
Hello Kitty!!!! They look fabulous. Thank you for the heads up.
Re: Twenties Girl (5:30pm December 26, 2009):
Wild, desolate moors. I am heavily influenced by my love of Wuthering Heights.
Re: Searching For Pemberley (2:40am December 23, 2009):
Another book to add to my must read list. I adore Austen.
Re: Paraworld Zero (5:09pm December 21, 2009):
The book looks amazing. My mother lived through a fire as a child & is still troubled by it. So best wishes.
Re: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings (5:05pm December 19, 2009):
Gandalf obviously. A wizard powerful enough & dark enough to combat the forces of Sauron & Mordor.
Re: Mennonite Community Cookbook (5:01pm December 19, 2009):
Traditional for us means making everything from scratch using the best ingredients. I still cook this way. It is cheaper & more nutritious & brings the family together for preparation & cooking & eating time.
Re: Gentlemen Prefer Succubi (5:54pm December 18, 2009):
I want both Vampire & Angel. So naughty of me.
Re: The Beautiful Being (3:33pm December 17, 2009):
Thank you for the interesting insight. I admire the tenacity of writers & I am so very thankful. I wouldn't have so many wonderful books to read otherwise.
Re: Divorced, Desperate and Deceived (7:56pm December 16, 2009):
The list was hilarious. My hero would never say: real men don't wear condoms. I have actually heard it said & I couldn't leave fast enough.
Re: Wild Heart (6:45pm December 14, 2009):
I thoroughly enjoyed the insight. There is so much more than meets the eye - as it were
Re: Rainwater (2:31am December 14, 2009):
I don't have a set time-frame for historical. Sometimes it is a certain feel to a story. If pushed I would say before my birth. So go back at least 50 years.
Re: The Killing Hands (5:17pm December 11, 2009):
Interesting way to write. I wonder how it all fits together.
Re: Love in Translation (9:16pm December 10, 2009):
I have never lived abroad. I imagine there would be many challenges. Exciting though.
Re: Urgent Care (5:00pm December 9, 2009):
I laughed out loud at what you have written here. I could so easily imagine it. Brilliant!!
Re: Searching For Pemberley (3:41pm December 3, 2009):
As a HUGE Jane Austen fan I would love to read SEARCHING FOR PEMBERLEY. Fingers crossed!!
Re: Sex Drive (6:55pm December 2, 2009):
I do love to read series. I think 4-6 books in a series allows for growth & interaction to fully develop.
Re: Scorched (6:29pm December 1, 2009):
I laughed over the Health Advisories. Very true.
Re: Snow Angels (3:28am December 1, 2009):
Having recently read my first Kathy Reich book, I know I will be searching for more. Fun & murder & a little science.
Re: Take Me For A Ride (7:25pm November 28, 2009):
I left out the sugar in a batch of cookies & you wouldn't believe how nasty they were.
Re: Over My Dead Body (7:39pm November 27, 2009):
I nominate my sister. She lives near our aging parents & does SO much for them.
Re: Knit The Season (7:38pm November 27, 2009):
I love to knit. I tend to knit a lot for the premmies at the hospital.
Re: Captive of Sin (7:20am November 27, 2009):
I have just watched an excellent new British production of Wuthering Heights so Heathcliff is foremost in my mind.
Re: It Happened One Night (6:15am November 27, 2009):
Finding myself has been worth the wait. I have discovered a great deal about myself along the way & I feel I am now stronger, wiser & fearless.
Re: Prime Evil (2:14am November 22, 2009):
I have so much respect for writers. I can barely put 2 words together some days.
Re: The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening (2:12am November 22, 2009):
Angelus: no question, no doubt. What a smackdown that would be though.
Re: The Monuments Men (9:21pm November 20, 2009):
Just fascinating. Who ever said history is dead, is - well - dead wrong.
Re: The Splendor Falls (8:32pm November 19, 2009):
The Splendor Falls sounds wonderful.
Re: Dark Legacy (6:16pm November 18, 2009):
The cover is brilliant. The story looks superb. Thank you for sharing. I SO have my fingers crossed.
Re: The Accidental Werewolf (7:40pm November 17, 2009):
The gift of books has certainly widened my choice of reading. Having been introduced to certain authors I have sought more of their work. Word of mouth very is important too.
Re: Men Of The Otherworld (5:46pm November 16, 2009):
Clayton Danvers gets my blood pumping.
Re: Prime Evil (5:44pm November 16, 2009):
I don't know the types of vampires well, so I am with Lisa - hot & sexy.
Re: Over My Dead Body (5:42pm November 16, 2009):
I am going to visit my parents next week & I am shamelessly looking forward to my mother making all my favorites. For one whole week I will be someone's child again, not the responsible adult. I can't tell you how peaceful that is.
Re: Dead Pan (2:31am November 15, 2009):
I love all the titles. As I read down the page my smile just continued to grow. You now have my complete attention.
Re: Kill Zone (5:43pm November 13, 2009):
I believe in happiness. It's not enough to just live. As a mother all I have ever wanted for my children is to be happy. Achieving their true goals & potential.
Re: Willoughby's Return (9:06pm November 12, 2009):
Damn, I want to read this. I could practically recite Austen by heart & as for Willoughby - the cad & bounder - yes please!! A ball gown would be heavenly - so feminine & lady-like.
Re: Love You To Death (9:03pm November 12, 2009):
You had me at damn good-looking.
Re: Bunco Babes Gone Wild (10:58pm November 11, 2009):
Granny knickers: we all have at least one pair.
Re: Children of the Night (10:53pm November 11, 2009):
I go back to Bram Stoker time & again.
Re: Kindred In Death (4:59pm November 10, 2009):
I have one - a classic - Mr Darcy: I just want to melt his buttons & dip him in chocolate.
Re: Spinning Forward (4:57pm November 10, 2009):
Beautifully said. I am very keen to read SPINNING FORWARD.
Re: The Princess Bride (3:52pm November 9, 2009):
I do not have a favorite line, but I love the fact that no one can ever penetrate a mask as a disguise.
Re: Kindred In Death (3:16am November 9, 2009):
Long running series are always welcome. It's like coming home.
Re: Wild Blue Under (3:15am November 9, 2009):
I love the title WILD BLUE UNDER. It invites further investigation.
Re: Rainwater (5:26pm November 7, 2009):
I don't find book trailers very helpful. So, I tend not to view them. Not what you want to hear after all your hard work, but there it is. I would rather read reviews & excerpts.
Re: One Lucky Cowboy (3:40pm November 5, 2009):
I love cowboys & so look forward to reading One Lucky Cowboy.
Re: The Wrong Side of Dead (1:12am November 4, 2009):
A very, dirty, dirty old, old, old, old man. EWWWWW!!! Not love. I'm assuming barely lust even. For her part - what is she thinking???
Re: Killjoy (6:38pm November 3, 2009):
My favorite villain right now is not in print but on TV. SYLAR from Heroes is a villain I love to watch. He is so incredibly dark & interesting. The twisted wry humor shines through.
Re: Captive Desires (6:22pm November 2, 2009):
My creative escape is craft. I couldn't possibly sleep on a pillow case without the embroidery. Fairies dancing around my back garden would be delightful.
Re: Remembering Ashby (12:01pm November 1, 2009):
I actually groaned when the excerpt ran out. Not fair!!
Re: Final Approach (7:35pm October 30, 2009):
Recycling is a stroke of genius. All this candy talk makes me want to scavenge out some right now.
Re: Haunted (7:31pm October 30, 2009):
I love witches too. It's important to have a little magic in ones life.
Re: What The Duke Desires (5:32pm October 29, 2009):
I love books & indeed series about families. It's often more involving. The dynamics are always interesting.
Re: Kindred In Death (4:42pm October 28, 2009):
I treat myself at birthdays & Christmas & yes, books always top the list.
Re: Mr. Darcy Vampyre (4:40pm October 28, 2009):
I love the original, bring it on. I can't wait to read this. Fingers crossed.
Re: Silver Silence (8:00pm October 27, 2009):
I hear Avalon & immediately I want more. So, very well done. I have my fingers crossed.
Re: Fool Moon (6:29pm October 25, 2009):
I don't have the opportunity to listen to audio books & I don't have a strange story so aren't I a dull one?
Re: Santa Honey (7:00pm October 23, 2009):
I'm not much into ebooks yet. I love holding a print copy in my hand as I read. Walking into a book store is my Alladin's Cave. Full of treasures & pleasures.
Re: Possess Me At Midnight (6:14pm October 22, 2009):
Romance should be much more & thank you for recognising that. Not easy for you but well worth the read.
Re: My Wicked Vampire (6:17pm October 20, 2009):
Humor is subjective. I can well believe it would be harder to write. I do know that when an author hits just the right tone & connects, I return for more laughs. So, well done. You make me come back.
Re: Loot the Moon (11:51pm October 19, 2009):
Job satisfaction & mentally crossing off tasks motivates me. I hate having things hanging over me still waiting to be done. I find that oppressive.
Re: Finger Lickin' Fifteen (3:09am October 18, 2009):
I want just enough to get a feel for the location, situation, history etc. Then the stage is ready for the characters to do their thing.
Re: The Trials Of The Honorable F. Darcy (8:46am October 16, 2009):
I am a dedicated 'Austenite'. Elizabeth Bennett is my favorite Austen woman. She gets Darcy after all.
Re: A Marquis To Marry (4:30pm October 14, 2009):
Another fabulous book to add to my wish list. So many books so little time. If that's my biggest problem today then life is grand.
Re: The Hunt (11:04pm October 12, 2009):
I think change is a good thing. To reinvent oneself is empowering.
Re: The Promise (7:06pm October 11, 2009):
I would go through the TBR books & weed out those that I no longer felt COMPELLED to read. Having said that my list continues to grow & I love the fact that I will always, ALWAYS have books to read.
Re: A Hollywood Ending (12:02pm October 11, 2009):
I have also been reading SEP for a long time now & always enjoy. My current favorite, favorite is Annie Solomon. I am rediscovering her work.
Re: Demon Ex Machina (1:22am October 6, 2009):
There is nothing better than losing oneself in the magic of a book, except eating chocolate & reading.
Re: A Dark Love (1:02am October 1, 2009):
A fascinating insight. I can't wait to read A Dark Love.
Re: Lucky Break (11:18pm September 29, 2009):
I love a story that brings a smile to my lips & a book that makes me laugh with delight is a joy. Humor is an element that will encourage me to read on & seek out further work.
Re: Bluegrass Christmas (8:05pm September 28, 2009):
For me quirky translates to a lot of fun & a connection to the character.
Re: Shades of Twilight (7:04pm September 27, 2009):
I have been to one book signing. The talk beforehand was most inciteful. I loved this. I have been on the lookout for more in my area.
Re: The Accidental Family (7:04pm September 23, 2009):
My children made me challenge who I am. I grew in ways I would never have imagined. I continue to evolve & I am loving it. Enjoy!!
Re: Oscar Wilde And The Dead Man's Smile (7:00pm September 22, 2009):
Oscar Wilde speaks to so many of us. A great influence & extremely interesting - the man & his works. I have my fingers crossed for the set of Oscar Wilde mysteries.
Re: A Christmas Ball (5:26pm September 21, 2009):
Christmas is a big deal in our family. We have so many traditions that just make it extra special for us. They wouldn't mean much to others - small things like having nuts in shells stuffed into the toes of children's Christmas stockings. Always a joy.
Re: Audrey's Door (7:05pm September 18, 2009):
My first thought was that the writing touched on something very personal & painful in your 'number one' fan's life. I on the other hand want to lose myself in fiction, warts & all. A happy childhood as given me that safety net.
Re: Beast Warrior (4:47pm September 16, 2009):
There is something absolutely fascinating about werewolves. I certainly appreciated all the information about wolves. I think that all creatures have a place on our world - in reality & fiction.
Re: Loving Mr. Darcy (12:48pm September 12, 2009):
I see Darcy & my radar goes up. I can't wait to read Loving Mr Darcy.
Re: The Splendor Falls (12:45pm September 12, 2009):
Dying For Chocolate by Diane Mott Davidson comes immediately to my mind. I bought this for the title - relevant to my way of thinking - & was not dissapointed at all.
Re: Tie Me Down (5:55pm September 6, 2009):
I long to visit New Orleans. Until then I will content myself with the written word.
Re: Table Manners (5:52pm September 6, 2009):
I gardened all weekend. Up to my neck in compost & manure. Then I bathed & settled in with a book in one hand & a glass of wine in the other.
Re: Highland Rebel (6:24pm September 3, 2009):
I expect to be lost in another world when I read. I immerse myself into the story. If I can't find myself being drawn in by the end of the first page then I know it will not happen for that particular book. That does not mean it's a total loss just that I am outside reading in. One of my favorite books to be lost in is a classic: Gone With The Wind.
Re: The Treasures Of Venice (5:41pm August 27, 2009):
"The Treasures of Venic" looks fabulous. Love the name. It says read me. We celebrate the arrival of spring after a long cold winter.
Re: Feels Like The First Time (4:45am August 26, 2009):
Men In Black: everyone looks GOOOOOOD in a sharp suit & sunglasses. To represent myself I would have to say move over 'Suzie Homemaker'.
Re: In the Master's Bed (8:09pm August 24, 2009):
Back To School means: morning rush, checking homework, lost school gear - give me the holidays anytime thank you. It's a welcome break for Mum too.
Re: Skykeepers (12:02pm August 22, 2009):
As a huge Oded fan - he's SO gorgeous - love the choice.
Re: To Tempt The Wolf (7:26pm August 20, 2009):
If I could think of something terribly original I might be tempted to hash something out myself. I applaud all writers. I would not know where to begin. It has to be more fun being a reader.
Re: Tortured (7:38pm August 18, 2009):
TORTURED sounds fabulous. I love historical with a twist. I have my fingers crossed for this.
Re: Beloved Vampire (1:25am August 18, 2009):
Fabulous thus far!! Whiny is SO unattractive. Don't eat where you piss - as it were. (Mind my French). Eroticism needs to be hot, hard & heavy. Cheers!!
Re: Breaking Loose (3:21am August 13, 2009):
HOLDEN FJ: his name was Billy - it still is I suppose. Young love is like body armor nothing else penetrates.
Re: Nothing But Scandal (12:18pm August 8, 2009):
I am ALWAYS the heroine. That's the best way to fully immerse myself.
Re: Babydoll (6:59pm August 4, 2009):
Going by your quiz questions we would kill each other. We work best together in the garden. He actually likes all the dirty, heavy work & I like to water the plants & admire - him & the garden.
Re: The Texas Twins (3:19am June 2, 2009):
The Texas Twins: I could just eat them up with a spoon.
