I met one of my best friends back in 2003 when I started working at a Waldenbooks in the Kalispell, Montana mall. Her name is Lisa. We bonded over our love of fiction <g> particularly romance. I introduced her to Sherrilyn Kenyon…. I think. It was a long time ago. 😛
We have been friends through thick and thin, job changes and moves and she’s turned me on to so many great books. That’s what friends do right? Share the book goodies! Lisa told me to read Ilona Andrews and Ann Aguirre among others. She’s the girl I call to get the scoop on what she’s read and to *squee!* about books we both love.
Oh! She’s also my convention buddy! We’ve been to the Romantic Times Book Convention 5 times, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2012. 😉 We really get into the costuming and plan for months. I am looking forward to our next adventures. I can’t wait to start sharing more of her book reviews her on The Book Tart! Click HERE to see her first review.
Here’s my girl Lisa ,the Maid of Tarts avatar
Ummm, lol she came up with the Maid title. Seriously! When we were getting ready to go to the Romantic Times Book Convention last spring and I was just starting The Book Tart… She know how much of a spaz I can be and how I get so excited about meeting authors that I forget things and, this is very important… how lost I get! I have a broken navigation system and can’t read a map. Books yes… Maps? Nope. So I start to panic when I look at hotel convention maps. She has learned to keep me calm and on track. Hence the Maid of Tarts designation. 😀 I adore her so much!
Please welcome the Maid of Tarts
