I live in central California and have been a romance reader for many years. I'm dating myself here, but the first Harlequins I read made you go through just about the whole book before the hero and heroine even kissed! That was okay by me because I was just fourteen when I began reading them.
My current "keeper" library has about 1000 books in it, many of which have been shipped all over the country with me multiple times. Of course, Catherine Anderson books are included in that number. But I have eclectic reading tastes...history, biography, current events, true crime, etc., as well as romance.
I've worked with animal rescue organizations in several states and have been told I have a special way with both cats and horses. With individual exceptions, I'm not a doggy person. I also love all types of birds, wild and domestic, and every farm animal that ever breathed, except llamas that spit and mean bulls that make me sprint for the fence.
I like to cook, and I think the recipe section of this website is a great idea. I've put up some of our favorite recipes, and found some delicious new ones that my family requests regularly. Thanks, to those who contribute.
I'm glad to hear that Catherine has no plans to retire. I've just finished "Here To Stay," which I snatched this morning, and I'm already panting to get my hands on the still-in-production story of David Paxton.
