You all are going to know immediately why I want you to meet Heather, from Fun-Size Reads. She’s a “librarian, a blogger, a knitter, a total geek and an unabashed romance reader.” Her words. But each one of them near and dear to my heart. We are probably sisters separated at birth.
After 18+ years of talking about books for work (the absolute best part of her job, she says,) she created Fun-Size Reads, a book review blog so she could share her passion for books with all of us. She also reviews for the School Library Journal. She … Read more »
Let me say first, I ADORE Lorraine Heath. I’ve known Lorraine for years and years–and she always makes me laugh. I’ve been on endless buses with her, traveled on book tours with her and laughed more than is probably healthy around her–mostly about Cathy Maxwell and her macaroons. But that is a story for another time.
What I adore most about Lorraine are her beautiful and wonderful stories. What? You haven’t tried her books? Goodness sakes what are you waiting for–Once More, My Darling Rogue is out NOW!
Besides, anyone with her nicknames just has to be … Read more »
‘Cause I just love meeting people online and then sharing their fun with the world, I thought wouldn’t it be a kick to feature bloggers, readers and romance addicts every Friday, so everyone can find MORE places to share their love of books. Felicia of The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog kindly and nicely agreed to go first. So please give Felicia a warm welcome and then make sure to go visit her blog and friend her on all your favorite social media haunts.
With further ado, please meet Felicia.

I used to do these Tuesday 5 Things interviews all the time, but got out of practice. My bad! But because so many of you have asked me to continue doing them, I’m gathering them in as I write this. In the past we found out 5 Things about some of my favorite friends and authors, including Katharine Ashe, Sarah MacLean, and Laura Lee Guhrke (who like so many authors, can’t count and answered way more than 5 questions! LOL), who all agreed to take a list of crazy questions from me and give up 5 of their secrets.… Read more »

I recently met Pamela Palmer in person at the Washington Romance Writers Conference–she had emailed me a few weeks before the conference as a welcome to WRW and offered her help navigating a new conference–I was so touched by how nice she was to offer, and soon discovered that she is also extremely nice in person. So if you want to be scared and “bitten” by a generous and kind person, here are Five Things about paranormal author Pamela Palmer.
1. Where is the most beautiful/romantic place you’ve ever been? Loch Ness, Scotland. My husband and I toured Scotland some … Read more »
Grace Burrowes is one of the lovely members of the Washington Romance Writers who I had the pleasure to meet at their retreat the first weekend of this month. I knew immediately that I needed to introduce her to all of you! Without further ado, here are Five Things about Grace Burrowes:
1. Where is the most beautiful/romantic place you’ve ever been? Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
2. If you could go on a date with any superhero, who would you choose and why? Wonder Woman. I want to know how she does it, where she got her boots, and … Read more »
