Getting to Know Ava Cuvay (Contest)

Getting to Know Ava Cuvay (Contest)

My Summers are usually filled with author signings, the coordination and travel to get to them, time spent with readers and other authors, and writing deadlines. It’s an intense, hectic, wonderful few months. This Summer, however, my plans were oddly absent. Signing Season happened during the Spring months instead, and I made no firm writing deadlines because I was uncertain what I wanted to write after my May release of What a Dragon Loves completed my Star of the North…

Getting to Know Brent Archer (Contest)

Getting to Know Brent Archer (Contest)

Life is a journey, and though I’ve hit a lot of bumps, it’s been an interesting ride so far. I’ve spent several years as a musical theater actor, met my husband in a dance ensemble, developed a hunger for travel, and sat behind many a desk pulling my hair out doing non-profit accounting (non-profit can also be a descriptor for the salary…). Creativity has always dominated the course of my journey. Many of those accounting gigs were for arts organizations….

Getting to Know A.J. Harris (Contest)

UPDATE: The winners are…Debra and Terra Oenning! *~*~* Interrogating A.J. Harris I am an unalloyed geek. Two of my favorite shows are Babylon 5 and The Prisoner. They’re known for a lot of things, including asking very simple, but very consequential questions. An interrogation, if you will. And since an interrogation features prominently in my short story for Secret Identity… Who Are You? I’m a writer. I’ve published short stories in about a dozen anthologies. Some are under my given…

Getting to Know Michal Scott (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Cindy! *~*~* I sat down to create this post with Rogers’ and Hammerstein’s “Getting to Know You” from The King and I playing in my head. My favorite phrase from that song is, “you are precisely, my cup of tea.” I hope by the end of this post, after you’ve gotten to know me, I’ll be a tea to your liking. Born and bred in Brooklyn, NY, I’m a child of the sixties’ Black Power movement and…

Getting to know D.S. Dehel (Contest — Two Winners!)

UPDATE: The winners are…Colleen C and Mary McCoy! *~*~* “Turn to your shoulder partner and tell them three things about yourself.” These words always sent horror and dismay coursing through me. As if Professional Development days weren’t bad enough, I now had to talk about myself. Sigh. You see, the fact is…I’m boring.  I’m just a rather ordinary person who often has the great luck to do interesting things. So, I’ll get the formalities over with and get to the…

Getting to Know Darah Lace (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Melanie Ball! *~*~* I hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July yesterday. I celebrated both the holiday and a mad dash to meet a book deadline (I wrote “The End” last Saturday.) by the pool with my husband and two mini Dachs. They didn’t like the fireworks much. We live in Texas where the first twelve years of my life was spent on a farm until we moved to the city. I suppose they’ll…

UPDATE: Congrats to all the winners! This contest is now closed! *~*~* We’re celebrating Canada Day here in Ontario. I’m not sure how many of the authors in the Secret Identities: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology are fellow Canucks, but I was born and raised in a small town here in Canada. A little bit about me… I’ll be turning thirty-seven this autumn. I’ve got two little girls. We’re a homeschooling family that has elected to currently explore alternative education…
