Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Narrowing to five is difficult. Julie Garwood's FOR THE ROSES and PRINCE CHARMING, Maggie Osborne's THE PROMISE OF JENNY JONES, Jodi Thomas' TO KISS A TEXAN, and Lorraine Heath's SWEET LULLABY. Each is a western historical, and each of the main characters were unforgettable.
What do you read for pleasure?
I am an eclectic reader of romance, romantic suspense, paranormal, romantic comedy, cozy mysteries, and mysteries. My favorites are western historical romance and Regency romance--especially if they include humor such as Jacquie Rogers and Loretta Chase's novels. For romantic suspense, Geri Foster is my favorite author.
