Welcome to Writer Wednesday! Today I can’t believe I’m hosting Shirlee Busbee. Yes, THE Shirlee Busbee, a lion in the romance writing field!
Personal aside: one time, as a teen, I was reading one of Ms. Busbee’s books at the pool, and a man next to me said, “That’s my aunt.” I’ve never forgotten it – it felt like a brush with royalty at the time, to meet someone who knew a famous romance author. And here I am, years later, featuring that same author on my blog. *giddiness*
Shirlee Busbee is one busy lady, but she did drop by to share a bit about herself:
Which type of romance do you love most, and why?
Contemporary — Woman in Jeopardy/Mystery/Adventure.
Since I write mostly Historical, they make a nice change. Always fun to read what’s happening in the modern world.
Name two things people don’t know about you?
I love digging in the dirt and burning brush. Love to throw brush on the burnpile and watch it flare and flame. Digging in the dirt is a great stress-releaser.
What fellow romance author do you recommend reading and why?
There are several, but Jayne Ann Krentz gets my vote. Her books are delightful, a wonderful mix of humor, mayhem and mystery. She never disappoints.
THE TIGER LILY is an exciting tale of a beautiful heiress, torn between the conflicting emotions of defiance and passion aroused by the handsome American who controls her destiny.
Thanks so much for joining us, Shirlee!
