Beach Chat with Jenna Jaxon

        As of yesterday, when the skies were sunny and the bay waters were smooth and the temperatures rose to a balmy 78, it became official--Beach Season has arrived!  Yeah!  So it's a a perfect time to pull up a beach chair and chat with a local author who has found great success with her historical and contemporary erotic romances. I always love getting to know a new author.  I think you'll enjoy meeting this one, too!

Today we're chatting with:  Jenna Jaxon. 

Most cherished beach memory:  Out on the sand with my daughter when she was about
          6 months old, lying on a towel, with her fast asleep beside me.

Recommend a Beach Read:  Well, if not one of my books…anything by Stephen King.  He writes such riveting stories!  If you prefer romance to horror, Joanna Lindsays’s No Choice But Seduction is set at sea for the most part and fun to read with the salt wind in your face and the sound of the waves crashing.

Beach Craft: Life's a Beach

This is the view when you come in the back door of our little beach cottage.  So while life is not always a "vacation," at least every time it feels like one!

But this is what it looked like before I got crafty:

Beach Chat with Sharon Love Cook

You know me and my love for a good cozy…add a dash of humor and a few helpful household hints (รก la Heloise) and it’s a recipe for a good read! My pre-search (that’s my made-up word of the day, to indicate research done in advance of contacting the author) had me laughing out loud at here cartoons portraying a grown up Nancy Drew and other mystery-related single-panel comics.  She also writes greeting cards (you may have purchased or received one and didn't realize it) and in her free time is a stand-up comedienne   Are you ready to laugh?  Of course!  So let’s head on down to the beach and get talking with this jack-of-all-comic-trades…

Today we’re chatting with: Sharon Love Cook

Recommend a Beach Read: I recently attended the Love is Murder writers conference in Chicago and met Elizabeth Duncan, whose The Cold Light of Mourning won the Malice Domestic Best First Traditional Mystery Novel Competition. After talking with her, I went out and grabbed the book (first paying for it) and liked that a lot. The setting is Wales, where the author visits annually.
