Five Crazy Things About Me Meme.

1.) I will react violently and involuntarily if anyone puts their hands around my throat. I can't stand turtlenecks or chokers either.

2.) When I was three I plucked a big hairy spider off the side of the house and ate it. The folklore in my family is that's why I became a writer (that whole "spinning a web" thing).

3.) We have eight cats (and one well-pampered outdoor moocher) because stray felines seem to have Sucker Radar, upon which we shine vibrantly.

4.) I took years of Russian language, but all I can say is "Here is St. Basil's Cathedral".

5.) I am a frequent lucid dreamer and often "wake up" in the middle of nightmares...which sucks.

It's really scary how easy that meme was to do. I'm just sayin'

I tag...Patrice Michelle, and Daisy Dexter Dobbs

Ellora's Cavemen: Dreams of the Oasis Volume IV -- by, Anya Bast,Charlotte Boyett-Compo, Lena Matthews, Kris Starr, N.J. Walters & Ravyn Wilde

Reviewed By: Elise Logan for Romance Divas

"I love these anthologies – if for no other reason than they introduce you to a number of authors you might not otherwise read. In this collection, the stories run from fantasy to contemporary; from paranormal to the guy next door. The stories are very strong individually, with Anya Bast's Getting Slayed and N.J. Walters' Shadows Stir being the strongest offerings."

Getting Slayed by Anya Bast

Bast's contribution is one of the most entertaining stories I've read in a long while. It's a definite twist on the "hero slays dragon to win the princess" fairy tale, and it is by turns hilarious and hot.

Dreams of the Oasis IV releases on Thursday, December 21st at Ellora's Cave!!

My husband and I recently had a series of immunization shots in preparation for a trip to a developing country:

My husband: "My arm hurts."

Me: (teasing) "Oh, poor baby. You're so fragile. You're like a leetle flower who needs many kisses."

My husband: (stares for a moment) "That's so wierd. I was just about to (jokingly) say the exact thing. I mean the exact same thing."

This isn't an uncommon thing for us. It's like we read each other's mind without even knowing we're doing it. Do you do that with your spouse? I'm interested to know. :)


In other news....

Witch Fire publication date has been moved up to June 2007!! Whee!!!!

I'm so excited for you all to read about Mira and Jack. I enjoyed writing their story so much. I think my characters are what I love most about writing. I fall in love with them. I hope you will too.

I am planning to soon add an excerpt of Witch Fire to my web site, so watch for that to appear within the next few days.
