Get in the #Christmas Spirit! Penny Estelle Stops By For Some Holiday Cheer.

Please give a warm welcome to my fellow contemporary romance author, Penny Estelle! She’s sharing a little of her new Christmas romance as well as some interesting facts about herself. Welcome, Penny!

The Unwanted Christmas Guest

99 cents until December 1

The Unwanted Christamas Guest 333x500Elizabeth McMurphy is an up and coming high powered attorney and is after vengeance, involving one of the richest and most powerful families in Colorado. Steve York is an obnoxious reporter that thinks the ice queen has gone too far and does all he can to get under her skin.

When one of the worst blizzards in history hits Colorado during the Christmas holiday and leaves a hurt Steve York, stranded with Elizabeth in a mountain cabin, her hatred for him starts to thaw. But this attorney has a secret that she will guard, even at the risk of losing her only chance at love.

Excerpt

He pulled out the chair across from her and sat down.  One side of his mouth quirked up into one damn sexy grin.

“Look, as much as I’d love to sit and chat…”

He didn’t let her finish.  “You look very…” Steven paused for what seemed like minutes, “professional.”

“Professional?” she asked.

Steven nodded.  “Since I’ve been covering your cases, you have been the cover girl for professionalism.  Your chestnut hair is always in a tight bun at the nape of your neck, always parted in the middle and has never seen even a strand of hair out of place.  Your dark brown eyes, expressionless, almost robotic.  Your voice is never raised in anger or excitement.  It’s practically void of emotion.”

Elizabeth lightly touched the napkin to her lips.  Her insides were screaming for her to cut and run, but outside she was the picture of cool, almost bored.

“And then there is your choice of clothing,” he continued.  “Always the power suits.  The skirts hit just below the knees, hugging your…”  She couldn’t help but glance up him, waiting.  “…frame to perfection.  And the intimidating suit jacket. I’ve never seen you without the jacket.”

She opened her purse and threw some money on the table.  “It’s been a slice of Heaven, Mr. York,” and got out of her seat.

Steven grabbed her wrist.  “How did you find all those girls to come forward?”

She looked at his hand holding her wrist, saying nothing until he slowly let it go.  “I don’t do interviews.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Penny Estelle was born, long ago, in Iowa City, Iowa.  Her family up and moved to Mesa, AZ, when she was a toddler, and has remained in Arizona since.

She started writing for children right before retiring, claiming after working so long with children of all ages, she has plenty of material to work with. “I was never a reader as a child or teen and I missed out on so many adventures.  I think it’s very important in today’s world to get kids reading and keep them reading.”

Her books for the younger group include a children’s picture book,  Have You seen My Tail, a book of magic and fantasy, Hike Up Devil’s Mountain, plus a series of time travel adventures for ages 9 – 13, The Wickware Sagas.

Penny decided to try her hand at writing for the older crowd.  She now has a family drama about desertion and addiction, two contemporary romances, a paranormal romance and two historical western romances under her belt.  She and her husband also wrote a non fiction short story on their experience living with solar.

Penny Estelle was a school secretary for twenty-one years.  After retiring, she and her husband moved to their fifty-four acre ranch in NW Arizona where they live off the grid.  Solar and wind is the only source of electricity.  “A real adjustment for a city girl, but I love it.  At night, the sky is an explosion of stars.  It is breathtaking!”

If Penny is not working on stories, she enjoys four-wheeling on unexplored roads, visiting with family (especially her seven grandchildren), and enjoys the occasional visits to the casinos.  She also admits her weakness is ice cream, anytime, anywhere!

5 Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Me:

  1. I live extremely rural, on wind and solar only. At night, other than moon and stars, there is no light.  I am afraid of the dark!
  1. I write for kids, ages 9 – 13, and I NEVER read as a child. I missed out on so much.
  1. Once my folks went out of town and I had some friends over. Can’t remember the details, but a can of green paint was spilled in the middle of the carpet.  We moved an overstuffed rocker to cover it.  My mom became suspicious the second she saw a rocker in the middle of the living room.   Not only was I a little wild as a kid, but apparently not too bright either!  LOL
  1. I would rather deal with a rattlesnake than a mouse. We have an abundance of both around our property!
  1. If I had the money I would be a professional gambler!

K Pinson Talks Romance and Oreos

Kate Lynne UsedI love meeting other writers and I recently met the awesome, talented romance author K Pinson (who also writes erotica under the nom de plume Kate Lynn). We had a chance to sit down and have a chat. Being the nosy git I am (and because I love ya’ll!), I asked her a few questions. 

1. What is your book about?

In Spades is about a woman that was physically and mentally abused by her father at a young age. She finally gets out of the situation but returns when she hears that her mother gave birth to a new baby. She attempts to steal her, only to be almost beaten to death by her father. He takes his own life and the mother’s. The baby and her survive. She gets custody and raises her like her own. She decides it’s time to have a little fun…has a one night stand with a handsome lead singer of a rock band” In Spades” and the rest is a rollercoaster ride to the finish.

I also write an erotica series under pen name Kate Lynne… They have crazy twists and turns as well. I can’t really describe them, you’d have to read. The main character is the toughest female I’ve written thus far, though. She uses anyone and everything to satisfy her cravings.K Pinson Spades

2. Why romance?

I find beauty in the breaking. I honestly think that love is one of the strongest forces only next to hate. It can make people do crazy things. I like to get inside minds and find out how to give my characters the happiness they deserve. I want to be able to show those doubters that it is possible to turn something positive and to never give up.

3. If you could pick any actor to play your hero, who would it be?

Ryan Guzman

(I would like to inject here and say “YES, PLEASE!!!” LOL)

 

 

Bonus Question: What’s your guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure…..is Oreos…esp dipped in….chocolate milk.
