About Me

  • Behind-the-scenes in the life of MINX

    So I get lots of *ahem* interesting reader mail. Aside from a few rare exceptions, I absolutely *love* hearing from you guys. Most of the time it’s questions about your favorite characters or trying to trick me into giving out secrets about upcoming books (not happening) but I also get a lot of questions about … well, ME.

    I’m a pretty private person so that’s part of why I don’t share too much online but there’s also the fact that most of my adventures take place inside my head. My imagination takes me on a journey every day and most of those turn into novels 🙂

    But the rest of the time I’m indulging in my other favorite thing to do: READING. Books are like oxygen in my life and it’s rare to find me without my e-reader nearby.

    So I thought it would be fun to show you guys some of the books on my TBR pile. And in return, I hope you’ll recommend some of your favorite books, too. I always want to try new authors!

  • 6 Things Meme

    OKAY…I’ve emerged from my perpetual lurkdom because I was tagged for a random post by my fave person in the world, Michelle Lauren

    (1) I like car washes but I never get my car washed. I love riding through when my husband gets his done but I’m too cheap to pay for it on my own. My poor car is lucky if I throw a bucket of water at it once a year!

    (2) I can be a tad impatient. Just last night I asked my husband to pass me a cup. He had his hands full so he had to put what he was holding down. I was already getting it myself by the time he grabbed one 10 seconds later. He just laughs at me.

    (3) I forget easy things and remember difficult things. I can remember what DNA stands for (deoxyribonucleic acid) or why we have leap year (it takes the earth 325.25 days to rotate the sun. Every 4 years we adjust a full day to make up for it) but I regularly forget how old I am or what day of the week it is.

    (4) I hate TV but am somehow obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy. It’s either the ridiculously improbable medical cases, the licentious sex or the soap opera-esque drama. Either way I can’t stop watching.

    (5) I have seen the movie Aladdin more than 80 times. I have no excuse for this one. I’m a sucker for the whole prince in disguise thing I guess.

    (6) I’m double jointed in my arms. (What do you expect? I’m running out of stuff to say at this point!)

    Whew! Now let’s play eenie meenie miny moe. I TAG:

    Lillian Feisty
    Emma Petersen
    Meagan Hatfield
    Aurora Black
    Eden Rivers
