Princess Bride; No Way to Treat a Lady; Catch 22; One for the Money; Get Shorty
Born in New York State, I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and have spent my entire writing career in Los Angeles.
For more than thirty years I've been a copywriter and creative director for some of the advertising industry’s most recognizable agencies, winning numerous awards for my creativity. None of those ad agencies are still in business, but my lawyer says I have a rock-solid alibi.
Trained as a cook in the Army, I still enjoy being creative in the kitchen. Trust me, few things in life compare with the thrill of discovering you have just given a nasty case of food poisoning to 140 heavily armed men.
I live about halfway between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, in a house I shares with my two sons and a cat that’s part golden retriever.

Hi, and welcome to Book Blogs! If you have any questions about Book Blogs, please feel free to ask me. When you have time, please visit my blog to check out some great reviews, book giveaways, and author interviews.
Hello and welcome! It's hard to believe, but I've been on here almost a year, but when I first started I found it immensely comforting and helpful to get a few hellos, so thought I'd share a few. :) There's a lot going on around here - some of it confusing, some daunting, but mostly all helpful. If I can ever help, let me know!
Also, if you have a second, check out my blog (shameless self-promo plug here, sorry, but that's what we authors do right?!) - www.Jill-Elizabeth.com. I usually have a giveaway or two, book reviews, interviews, thoughts on reading/writing, and occasionally even a few of my own scribbles. Hope to see you - and am happy to check out your site if you send a link!
I am so glad you have come to join us! It can be a bit overwhelming around here at first, Don't hesitate to ask questions- At least until you get your bearings! I am more then happy to help!
We are also looking for any one interested in being a regular contributor on our blog! Monthly, Weekly, Bi- Weekly... we are flexible!

Family Friendly reviews of any genre are considered! If you are interested, email me at ekfamilybooks(at)yahoo(dot)com so that I can send you a copy of our blog post template to get you started!
Hello Jeff, Have you been here before? I welcome people all the time, but I feel like I have welcomed you before? Or you have a doppelganger! Welcome to Book Blogs, I have forged many friendships here with avid readers and prolific writers. We help each other out and have a great time while we do so. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Archway to Acknowledgement is a group that can increase your following on twitter if you are interested in that. I have joined many groups that fit the topics I write about and that can help me market my debut novel and prepare me for the one I will release next spring. If you get a chance please check out http://www.TheBridgeofDeaths.com a Paranormal, Historical Romance. I hope you enjoy Book Blogs as much as I have, Catalina
