What do you read for pleasure?
I read everything. I call myself the literary lunatic for a good reason. I’m crazy about novels. Reading books and writing them comes as natural as breathing to me. When I was a kid I loved horror. You couldn't tear me away from Anne Rice and Stephen King novels. I am a bit of a sci-fi nerd too. I love romance and contemporary fiction (yes, even Twilight), and literature as well the classics like To Kill A Mockingbird, A Tree Grows In Brooklyn and Kindred. I'm not chained to one genre. I'll read any books that are entertaining, fun to read and harrowing all at the same time. I try to create books like that as well.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I don't use e-readers very much. I prefer print. I love holding a book while sipping vanilla chai.
