Meet My Character blog hop

Monday, August 25th, 2014

I was invited to this “Meet My Character blog hop” by Carol Anne Olsen Malone

Her Bio:

Carol’s bio: Carol Malone has found a magical key for successfully combining her three passions – romance, sports, and writing in her highly rated book, “Fight Card Romance: Ladies Night.” http://amzn.to/1kI4dVo With “Ladies Night,” she became the first woman to punch her way into the suspenseful, male-dominated genre of pulp boxing with a tender love story. Since then she has written numerous stories to entice readers to scramble into a front row seat for a power-packed thrill-ride of romance and sports action.

Look for her novella “Hot Corner Magic” to be published in a pulp sports anthology in the next month or two and a Christmas visit to “Ladies Night” at Christmas time.

If not hammering out new tales, Carol is reading, watching sports or the Food Network on TV, or hanging with her sci-fi author husband on the Coast of California. Come visit her website and chat with her about sports and amour.

I have ping-ponged across the country, but I’m currently living in Newberg, Oregon.

If you could travel to any time in history, when would you visit?

After researching my Italian roots, I would visit Marsicovetere, Italy in the earlier part of the 1800s. I have uncovered some haunting questions that I would like to ask my 3rd great grandfather Rocco Bruno, such as why did he change his name—twice! I f you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would be? What food would you serve? I would put Jana, Jared and Trevor in the same room and enjoy the fireworks as the two men both tried to impress Jana. In A Strand of Doubt, I tell the Pacific Northwest Legend of two chieftains who fought over an beautiful maiden. The maiden was turned into (more…)

I currently reside in Northern Utah with my husband and three (soon to be four) children.

Adrienne, thanks for visiting my blog today. Tell us where you were born and where you live now?

Adrienne Author - 3650
I was born in Utah and still live there. While I love to travel and experience various cultures, I also love to come home and be with friends and family.

Nice…What makes you passionate about writing?
It’s probably because I’m so passionate about reading. Books keep us company when no one else can. They’re also a window into other lives and worlds. How can I not love books and creating my own stories?

Amen to that. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
