Future Librarian and Writer

According to her mother, Elysia is already a huge fan of mine. She has always wanted to be a librarian, but wants to write also. When she learned I’ve done both, her mother said I’ve been Elysia’s hero ever since.

Isn’t that the greatest thing ever? To not be able to leap buildings with a single bound, or stop a ship from plowing into a port city single-handed, but to be able to share stories with girls and boys who someday could very well be sharing their own stories and “moving” readers with their adventurous tales for younger generations to read–to me that is the most wondrous thing of all.

Rhonda's daughter reading The Dark Fae at Groundhouse Coffee

A quote from her mom and Elysia: “She is halfway through [The Dark Fae] and said, “OMG Mom this is getting really good!! I can’t put it down!”

And that is the best compliment an author can ever receive.

What could be better than reading The Dark Fae, drinking hot chocolate at Groundhouse Coffee on a lazy summer Sunday afternoon, while mom’s reading a much different book and drinking coffee?

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, Elysia, for loving my stories. And to her mom, who loves my adult stories, too!!! 🙂

One of my favorite YA authors is Amelia Atwater Rhodes. She wrote as a young girl and how I wished when I was penning stories at her age, I had been published, too. That’s what I love about creating stories. We can do it at any age, and share them with our friends and family and someday even the world.

What was the first book you read that you couldn’t get enough of? And had to read more of what the author wrote?

Thanks for dropping by and sharing your comments with me.

The Dark Fae

The World of Fae, Book 1, YA

One lucky winner will receive an ebook copy of The Dark Fae, international giveaway.

Thanks again to Elysia and her mom who shared this with me. And good luck, Elysia! All your dreams will come true with perseverance and determination!

Have a super great Monday! And if you have a moment, pass along your joy of reading to others!

Families that Read Together, Stay Together

Under the Cover Blog Reviewer tagged me in the CUTEST ever photo of her daughter and her on a camping trip… reading in a tent. She gave me permission to share this on my blog.

Now first, I want to say that jaguar shifters and werewolves are into camping, big time. They love the jungles/forests. So it just seems appropriate that she would be reading JAGUAR FEVER on the camping trip.

When I was growing up, my parents weren’t much to read. My mother loved books, but she never read them when I was home. My dad didn’t either. But I devoured books. We’d go to garage sales and I’d pick out all the books my mother could afford. I went to the school library all the time and read.

When I went camping with my best girlfriend, Diane Stokes, her parents were big readers. Her older sister was a librarian. We all read at a lake visit one time, Diane and my sister and I also spent a lot of time in the snapping turtle-infested Central Florida lake. And we loved it! That was part of the adventure. Staying on the rafts and hoping that there weren’t any water moccasins or alligators also in the lake. And that the turtles didn’t bite us. Since my mother tangled with a snapping turtle in another lake, we knew they could actually remove a toe with their beak-like mouths–according to a ranger who treated my mother’s bite. So we splashed a lot to keep them away, hoping they didn’t think we were flopping fish and ready to eat!

Both my son and daughter love to read as much as I do. And so do both of their spouses.

So when I go on vacation? I take a book or three with me. I have friends who sit on the beach reading. Not me. I’m walking or swimming. But at night… it’s time to cozy up with a book and drift off to another world.

What about you? Did you read as a family? Or are you the odd one out?

Get ‘Em While They’re Hot!

Okay, this is totally a misnomer. My shape-shifting wolves and jaguars are ALWAYS hot.

JAGUAR FEVER

She’s being pursued by everyone, in more ways than one.
Even in an exotic world of humans, jaguars, and tantalizing creatures who shift between the two, Maya Anderson stands out from the crowd. Interest from human suitors is bad enough, but when male shifters give chase, the real trouble starts.
Who’s the hunter and who’s the prey?
Investigating the black marketing trade of exotic animals keeps Wade Patterson more than busy. When he and Maya both get entangled in a steamy jungle mission, it becomes impossible to tell who is being hunted or who the hunters are. Wade is desperate to survive this deadly game of cat and mouse. But it’s Maya’s piercing eyes that keep him awake at night.
