This week on Nitty Gritty Romance, I decided to accept the blog challenge for romance writers – sure I was supposed to begin in January, and okay, I’m a little late, but why not celebrate New Year in June…?!
I like thinking of each day as a new beginning and a new opportunity (that’s the yoga teacher in me!), so why not New Year in June?
So here goes. My fellow romance writers gave me my first theme:
A Few of My Favorite Things
Well this one’s easy. First off, my hubby and my two young girls.
From there: My favorite things include yoga (it really, really makes you feel better! Promise!); Luna Bars ( I would be lost without them!); reading; writing; and the works of Hemingway and Bukowski.
My go-to Luna Bar in my favorite flavor, Caramel Walnut Brownie!
I also adore the band Train – actually Malcolm Angel, the rock star at the heart of Summer of Irreverence-The Rock Star, the first book in the New York Artists Series, was inspired by Pat Monahan’s voice. And I love going to outdoor concerts on summer evenings with my husband and my girls – we bring a blanket and a picnic dinner, and it’s just perfect.
I also love autumn, snuggling in sweaters and walking through the falling leaves…
Oh! And since this is a romance post, did I mention I love short facial hair on men…? Almost all of my male leads have a short beard at one point or another.
You can check out my Pinterest boards to find the men who’ve been the inspiration for my stories! Including this Sneak Peek for my latest novel (scroll down to meet Trevor Hughes) : Pinterest Sneak Peek
How about you? What do you love? Favorite season? Favorite foods? Facial hair or not?
We love to hear from you!
