Meet the Author/Interview With a Character Blog Hop

I really enjoy when blog hops have themes. I'm trying something new this time around and it sounds like fun. It's the Meet the Author/Interview With a Character Blog Hop. The prize is a $50 gift card to Amazon and each author has goodies on their own sites too. Be sure to comment and leave your email to win. My prize is reader's choice of any of my novels or an ebook copy of my soon to be released Enchanted Skye. I'll sign it for you too with Authorgraph.

To begin, I thought I'd share a little bit about what makes me tick today and then for the rest of the week, I'll get my heroes talking. The About Rose bio is on the right-hand column. That tells you a little about me. One thing it doesn't say is what my interests are. First of all, I'm an info hound and a dabbler. I love learning new things and I often put juicy real-life tidbits into my stories. There's even a name for dabblers like me  --  dilettante. 
:)  I love finding words too!

Here are several more things about me:
I enjoy the thrill of canoeing through white water rapids. These are what I consider to be reasonable rapids, not the kind where you ride the inflatable raft, hang on for dear life and wear a helmet so you don’t die. Though I’d like to try that sometime.

I’ve walked on fire three times. I’ll bet you’re thinking once would be enough! It was transcendent. There’s something about stepping beyond instinctual fear. No, I didn’t get burned and yes, I could have cooked a steak on the coals.

I’m Master Level Reiki trained.

To combat a crushing shyness, I took a DJ job in college. I enjoy all sorts of music but music of the British Isles and Appalachia are my particular favorites. I'll give everything a fair hearing. My itunes now has 8683 songs loaded on it. Unfortunately they won’t all fit on the ipod

I'm a dead-eye shot with a rifle and used to take part in black powder shoots. Now I have trouble threading a needle!

I’m a World drummer and occasionally teach how-to drum classes. My family will tell you my collection of percussion instruments from all over the world takes up a lot of space. Many of my friends are fellow drummers and we gather often to make music. It’s curious, but we’re so in sync when we play, we become entrained..that is our brains work together. That synchronization leads us to all stop at the same time without being prompted. It’s the sort of thing that makes you go wow.

Fun Fact: I once had a pet rooster who weighed 48 lbs. No kidding. His name was Brutus.

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask in the comment section below. I'll be here on and off all day to answer. Coming next -- my leading men get chatty!
