When I decided to have guests stop by once a month for 2015, the first name on my list was Eloise De Sousa. Kind, sweet, smart and witty, Eloise always makes me laugh and brings excellent content to her blog. How could I not ask her to be part of my adventure? Without further ado, I turn this space over to her.
Fancy joining me for a cup of Peppermint tea? I’m all out of Darjeeling unfortunately…unless you’d prefer a coffee or something stronger. It’s five’clock somewhere in the world! Jessica has let me loose on her blog and I thought it would be a perfect time to meet you and share a cuppa. Take a seat and I will pop the kettle on.
I met Jessica last year when I started my own blog and have found a lady I enjoy following and reading. She gave me a leg up when I started NaNoWriMo late last November and provided support for me to finish my book. She’s pretty awesome like that!
Do you take milk with your drink and how many sugars?
Whilst I pour your drink, I’d love to know how you met Jessica.
The blogging family are important to me because they have given me the confidence to further my writing and strengthen it. Writers, artists, fashionistas and musicians all meet together for one common purpose – to share ideas, thoughts, words. It’s those words that drew me to this place.
My own blog has no real identity, though I’d like to think it’s a promotional page for my writing! Instead, it has diverse posts, poems written on the spur of the moment and shared posts from fellow authors. Being an author (the pretend name I give myself) has its benefits. I get to write whacky stories for children and delve into a more sinister, sometimes romantic voice for my adult books. There are so many more stories to be told and time will tell if I get to write them all.
Would you like a biscuit? Chocolate or some shortbread?
By the by, have you seen Jessica’s book page? I have my eye on Obsidian Kept and have added it to my wish list on Amazon. Her poetry collection called Cravings is next and Timings too.
What sort of books do you like reading?
I prefer a mixture of romance, adventure, horror and of course action. My favourite would have to be Robert Crais’ Elvis Cole and Joe Pike series. Those are characters I would enjoy meeting with their kick ass moves and Magnum style approach to being private detectives. Well not Joe Pike – he’s just kickass! You’ll understand if you pick up one of Crais’ books.
Writing romance has its benefits. The characters can have their flaws and readers still love them. When I delve into the darker parts of the relationship I always wonder how far I can push the bar. What do you think? Is there a limit?
The clock is chiming on the wall.
Gosh, look at the time! I hate to push you out the door, but Jessica will be back soon and I have to put everything back in order before she does! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to get a chance to see you all again. Don’t forget to come visit me if you get a chance.
Nice meeting you!
Thank you SO much for coming by Eloise! I hope my readers have enjoyed getting to know you as much as I have.
