This week is my birthday and I am celebrating by having some of my fellow Rebel Ink Press authors come on over for the Birthday Bash party in honor of another spectacular year.
Today I welcome Joanne C. Berroa as my guest.
Joanne What is your favorite way to celebrate a happy personal event?
There must be tears. Always a happy cry or two, then lots of food. I like to celebrate by going out to a favorite restaurant and indulging on dessert afterward. Dessert is something I usually limit, so on special events I let go and order the most decadent chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream I can find! Death by chocolate, LOL. But aside from all else, I have to have my family with me. A special celebration wouldn’t be a celebration at all if my family didn’t share it. Let me finish by wishing you, Eden, a very happy birthday filled with family and friends and another year of good health and good fortune.
Thank you Joanne! I feel blessed at this juncture in my life. I hope for many more happy years with my partner and family, my human kids as well as furry ones. I’m getting used to being an emptynest mom with all the kids scattered around the world. And of course many more years writing sizzling hot stories that Rebel Ink Press presents to the world.
Learn more about Joanne and her most recent work.
I’ve been writing all my life. Back in 1983, Dell published my novel, “The Barbary Coasters.” It was set during the 1860’s in the Barbary Coast of San Francisco and was part of a series of books written by different authors called, “The Making of America.” My pseudonym was Lee Davis Willoughby.
I’ve written articles for several computer magazines over the last thirty years doing software and hardware reviews and ads. I was also a photographer for cover art for two magazines back in the 80’s, and currently write profiles for businesses and professionals for Micromedia Publications, a local newspaper publisher.
Rebel Ink Press has released four of my historical romances thus far: My Life, My Heart – a time travel–reincarnation novel, On Angels’ Wings – a love triangle novel set during the turbulent years of World War II, Love’s Sweet Vengeance – love and danger set in the old west in 1866, and The Diamond Cross (coming Nov. 17, 2013)– a sweeping romance saga taking place in the late 19th century in Hungary, New York and Saratoga Springs. Also in the works are two shorter “novellas” to be released in early 2014. All current novels are available in both eBook and print formats from Amazon.com.
In my “spare” time I also teach piano and organ.
BLURB for Love’s Sweet Vengeance:
When you pair a beautiful, smart, and independent lady sheriff in New Mexico Territory with a virile bounty hunter, you get sizzling chemistry, even though they’re at odds with each other and their objectives. Garrett Wade and Amanda Larson form a truce to track down Clem Jones, a notorious outlaw who’s responsible for Garrett’s wife’s brutal murder. Amanda, a lawman first and foremost, wants to bring Jones in for a fair trial, while Garrett wants only revenge—his style. Their quest leads them into mortal danger while a powerful lust brings them together in ways neither bargained for. If only they can survive the treacherous Superstition Mountains and hostile Apaches while exacting justice on Clem Jones, they might have a chance to nurture their lust into an abiding love.
