Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Hi!! I am married to the most amazing man. You will see him running around behind the scenes event day rocking his #WOTRfamily shirt. He vetoed his shirt saying trophy husband. SO RUDE. We have a daughter in college who is also running behind the scenes at the event. She is the one in the raffle rooming all day long manning the tables. Slave labor is ok if its family right???
We also have 4 insane and large dogs plus one heck of a monster cat. She runs the house no joke.
I am a parent educator by day and a blogger by night. I have been in the education field since 1996. I recently left teaching Pre-K Special Education to start doing Home Visiting for low income/teen moms to help with an early intervention type learning. I love it and love the impact I make with families.
When I met Jill and she mentioned starting an event in the area I jumped. I am so proud of everything we have done these past 7 years. This yearly event is pure dedication from us hosts, the authors, the sponsors and the readers. We love how much you all have embraced what we do and can’t thank you enough for everything from helping pitch in the event weekend, the raffle basket donations, the word of mouth to others about how phenomenal our event is and so much more. We are blessed when we say we have an Family because we fully believe in it.
How long have you been blogging?
I started officially blogging when TwinsieTalk started on October 14, 2014. Previously I was on street teams for authors and did ARC reviews only. I am blown away we have been around for 10 years!!
What are your favorite genres?
Paranormal by far is my favorite but I love a good MC too. Reverse harems have snuck into my heart the last few years as well. However, give me a love triangle and I am SOLD!!!
Who are some of your favorite authors?
JR Ward, Teresa Gableman, Mary Martel, H. D’Agostino, Michel Prince, Jade C. Jamison, Tricia Andersen are pretty much auto buys for me. I recently devoured a series by Tarina Deaton and I am having withdrawals from her alpha men. I also read and fell in love with a new author SJ Chaynie whose MC debut was amazing!!!
Do you prefer to read standalones or series?
Novellas or long books?
I appreciate a series. I am dedicated to a few and I wont be stopping with them anytime soon. There are times when I grab a standalone just for the one and done aspect. Novellas are my jam when I have a couple hours and want a quick HEA. I guess my answer is I love them all but it depends on what I want to read at the time and how much time do I have.
On a typical day, how much time do you spend reading?
I am all about audio during the week so I can get a good 3 hours in each day. Physical reading is a weekend thing and I get a book or two done if I have the time to spare.
Do you have a favorite character written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.
So purely because its hysterical. My favorite character written was by Kylie Scott. She name a character after me in Mal’s book in the Stage Dive Series (Play). “Angie” was the skank Mal texted by mistake instead of Anne his fake fiancée.
Do you have anything you want to share that didn’t fit on one of these questions?
I just want to thank everyone who has stood behind Writers on the River. It blows my mind how big this has gotten. Each year I stand at one point and almost cry at what we have accomplished again. When the totals for donation are announced, I almost pinch myself that we have done this. So Thank you for all you do to help us help the ladies at Thistle Farms.
