Welcome to my Blog & About Me!

Welcome to my blog! I am so glad you found me. I just wanted to start off with a little background information. I am an avid reader. I have been reading since I was a child. Growing up in a single parent home, my mom would take my sister and me to the local library. We often participated in their summer reading programs. I always had my chart full of star stickers. I don't recall there ever being a child there with more books read that I did. You bet I was the kid with the greatest imagination when it came to recess. I could relive all of my adventures that I had read about with my friends.

When I had my first child, I took a break from reading for my pleasure. I barely had time to sneak in a shower and brush my locks, let alone pick up an adult novel. Alas, I was stuck with Dr.Seuss and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. It wasn't until my youngest was 3 that I picked up a book for myself and rekindled my flame for reading. No longer was I stuck with the rhyming picture books. I could actually enjoy a little smutt every now and then! Best of all, I could escape from reality and stress and dive into a whole nother world. Who wouldn't want to do that?

Now I read most anything I can get my hands on, minus horror. I have an overactive imagination, and I don't need any help with the paranoia. I enjoy romance of any kind. I really like a HEA. Don't you? I LOVE paranormal. If it shifts, bites, or uses magic, there's a good chance that I will love it. I share my love of reading with 2 of my 3 children. My older two have read nearly every book in the school library. When they have a nice achievement, I reward them with books. Needless to say, I am a big fan of Half Priced Books. The little one; however, doesn't share our passion. I often ponder if the youngest wasn't switch at birth. I mean, who DOESN'T like to read? She has a few books she will pick up, but other than that, she'd rather play outside, play on the computer, or watch TV. (In that order) I suppose she takes after her father. He will only read books about something he's very passionate about. For him, it's motorcycles. For my daughter, it was Dear Dumb Diary books that held her attention. I guess we all have our 'thing.'

My love of reading has led me to many a book clubs, author pages and websites. I have met some of the most wonderful people through our common love of reading. I have made long lasting friends with several of other readers. I have had the privilege of meeting a number of the most amazing authors, some of which I participate in their street teams. I have my own book club over on Facebook. I also have a page on Facebook where I post about all things reading related. Whether it's reviews, free ebooks, upcoming releases, cover reveals, or author related giveaways, you will find it on my page. {I'll post the links to those at the bottom of this post} As I'm sure you can guess, this blog will pertain to the same things, for the most part. I hope you will join me on the journeys into the highlands, where shape shifters abound, and trouble lurks around the corner. Perhaps we will travel back into the time of mail order brides and American Indians? There will definitely be a rock star and a cowboy or two thrown into the mix. Oh the adventures we will go on!
