I’m a 30-something medical professional by day and obsessive Crossfitter by night who’s been in love with the written word since I can remember. And that means that I read every Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew Files until I snuck Stephen King’s It from my father’s bookshelf at age 10. I was never the same… I read voraciously for years, until academic pursuits derailed me, but re-entered the fray 8 years ago when a certain teen paranormal series caught my attention. The passion back, I haven’t stopped since. When I’m not working, working out, or traipsing around for my teenage son’s hectic activity schedule, you can find me with Kindle in hand, often until the wee hours of the night.
I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits. My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series. That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus. I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood. When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypas and Sarah MacLean are my auto-buys. My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads. Romantic suspense. LGBT. Western. If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.
