BJ has had a lifelong love affair with romance novels. It all began in her preteens with the discovery of the Sweet Valley High Series, and then later in her teens with historical romance novels which she secretly read under the covers until the wee hours of the morning! Although she took a break in her early adulthood, when the demands of establishing her career were all-consuming, three years ago she rediscovered her passion for romance novels through audiobooks. BJ credits the following bestseller paranormal/fantasy romances with renewing this spark: the Twilight Saga Series by Stephanie Meyers, the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning and the Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris.
Today, you can still find BJ listening to a new romance adventure while at the gym, driving, cooking, or performing other household chores. Having given up on television (after all audiobooks can be so much more enjoyable, and you don’t have to wait a whole week to get the next hour’s installment!), she also frequently listens to audiobooks after the kids go to bed until she lulls to sleep. BJ knows she is listening to a 5-star read when she finds herself sacrificing her sleep until the wee hours of the morning to finish a book! Old habits die hard!
These days, BJ has broadened her listening horizons to include not just historical and paranormal/fantasy romances, but also just about every subgenre of romance novels, including contemporary, romantic suspense, and young adult dystopian romances. A few recent favorite listens, include The Kathleen Turner Series by Tiffany Snow, The Selection Series by Kiera Cass and Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase. I told you her interests were eclectic!
