What brings you back to AAD?
Last year was my first year, and I had such a fantastic time that immediately added the next AAD to my schedule for this year. I’ve attended lots of conventions, but never one as fun as this one!
Ooh, that’s a difficult question. My cowboy novel, Riding Heartbreak Road, holds a special place in my heart because it was my first, but I have a special love for Outland, because the characters are not the typical six-packed, ruggedly handsome heroes one usually sees in romances. In Outland, my guys are both over 50, a little paunchy, and have been together for over 25 years. In truth, they’re my husband and me. I even said so in the dedication!
Tell us about the party you’re hosting at AAD!
I am helping host the welcome party, along with BA Tortuga and Julia Talbot. It’s going to have a western theme (everybody loves cowboys!) to go along with the anthology the three of us have coming out in time for AAD that’s called “Midnight Rodeo.” It’s a western paranormal theme. In any case, rumor has it that there’ll be food, swag, and -- gasp -- a genuine mechanical bucking bull at the party!
I’m on almost all the GLBT panels, plus any others where a warm body might be needed. I love doing panels, and had a blast doing them at last year’s AAD. It’s addictive.
SWAG. We all love SWAG! What cool stuff are you bringing?
I’m not sure yet, but probably something western-inspired. Or alcohol-inspired. Or both. We’ll see.
