Follow Friday

Happy Follow Friday!

Q. In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

A. Well, I think I would have to say dragons for this one. When I was a kid, I read the Pern series by McCaffrey and fell in love with the idea that dragons could be like horses, but way cooler. They could talk with you, shoot fire and basically be a total part of your life. How much cooler can it get? At one point I actually had to stop reading because it felt like physical pain that I couldn't go and live there. I know, stupid right? Me=hugest book nerd ever. I don't even deny it.

The other answer to this very cool question would be Hell Hounds. In one of the books I am working on, the main character encounters one, but it isn't anything like she thinks. That kind of dog I would love to be real. (My other passion is dogs.)

Excellent question. Now I am going to go work on my story...

Happy Follow Friday everyone!
A non book related question this week:

Q. Do you have pets?

A. Oh yes. Dogs. I rescue everything, so my furry babies are my life. My husband and I treat them like we would if we had kids. I also have four finches, a fish (Cranky Fish) and Godzilla the lizard.

My best and most wonderful baby is Taddy. He is the cutest thing ever...

Have a great weekend!

On My Nightstand: The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson

When Eve falls for the secretive, charming Dom, their whirlwind relationship leads them to purchase Les Genevriers, an abandoned house in a rural hamlet in the south of France. As the beautiful Provence summer turns to autumn, Eve finds it impossible to ignore the mysteries that haunt both her lover and the run-down old house, in particular the mysterious disappearance of his beautiful first wife, Rachel. Whilst Eve tries to untangle the secrets surrounding Rachel's last recorded days, Les Genevriers itself seems to come alive. As strange events begin to occur with frightening regularity, Eve's voice becomes intertwined with that of Benedicte Lincel, a girl who lived in the house decades before. As the tangled skeins of the house's history begin to unravel, the tension grows between Dom and Eve. In a page-turning race, Eve must fight to discover the fates of both Benedicte and Rachel, before Les Genevriers' dark history has a chance to repeat itself.


I  am looking forward to reading this compelling novel!
