Welcome the Amazin Denise

Cats or Dogs? ( Hey what about Birds and lizards? ) Cats. I have two. Named Mischief and Mayhem.

Salty or Sweet (This of course means when you’re “playing” because this isn’t an adult Goddess site for nothin’)? Chocolate? Both. You gotta have sweet after salty! What woman doesn’t like chocolate? Okay, there are a few, but that’s just so wrong. I’m fond of dark chocolate.

Vampires or Werewolves (Of course you can choose “other” but you have to elaborate *snickering*)? Vampire. Please. It’s like the sexiest thing in the world to be “bitten” on the neck.

Fireman or Cowboy? No contest…cowboy! I mean seriously, a man in a pair of snug, worn out jeans, and cowboy boots. Yeehaw! “Save a horse, ride a cowboy.”

Hairy or Smooth (Body hair)? Hm…depends on where. Bald is good. Hairy chest is sexy. But hair on his sexy cowboy butt – NOT!

Clean Shaven or Stubble? Shaven most the time, but yeah, I like a little scruff just so I have the marks from his passionate kisses on my face after a night of good lovemaking.

Diet or Regular soda (Or....if you’re like me, Kimberly, you’re stuck on Powerade Zero)? Diet? Blech! If you’re going to drink it then go for the real thing.

Fruit or Veggies (Or Chocolate)? Fruit! Which, of course, means I like chocolate covered fruit.

Coffee or tea (Or Chocolate)? Ick! Chocolate Raspberry hot cocoa. Now that’s a warm drink I can get into. Sneak a little Bailey’s in and settle down for a nice relaxing evening in front of a fireplace.

The song that is most annoying when it sticks in your head -- sorry had to do it. OMG! I have no clue. I don’t listen to the radio. I only listen to my CDs and well, I like them all.

Apple or Microsoft? I am a computer geek and I am a Microsoft baby. I don’t own an iPod, iPad, or any other I whatever.

Drama or Comedy or anything with Gerard Butler -- What Shauni? He’s Hawt! What Kim?*wiping drool* I love Gerard but what about Jason Momoa ooooohhh Or Charlie Hunnan? OOH Shauni! Charlie!!! We Loves Us some Jax! SOA! All the way baby! I guess we should let the guest answer the question though, huh? (tv, movies)? OH! I love Gerard Butler. The way his lip curls up slightly in a sexy smirk. He can do me anytime. Wha?! Did I say that out loud?

Spring or Fall (Fall -- cuz I can beat him to the floor! *snickering*)? Fall. Fires in firepits, colorful leaves and mums, and uh did I mention guys in jeans and sweaters, oh yeah, and cowboy boots. Guys who give you their jacket while you snuggle up around the firepit toasting marshmallows together and him blowing the burning marshmallow out before feeding it to me. Definitely, fall!

Sedan or Sports Car (Hey! I live in Texas! Where’s the truck suggestion???)? Yeah, where is the truck suggestion. Not one of those massive trucks like men drive to compensate for you know…the lack of. But a cool, kickass truck that you have to climb up to get in.

Tattoos or no Tattoos? OMG! I can’t believe you asked this question. Can you keep a secret? Well, okay, shh! I just have to tell you that for my birthday I got a tattoo. Holy cow! I can’t believe I told you that. Now you want to know what it is. It’s a cool Celtic knot.
Favorite splurge food -- Tacos, Pizza, Cheeseburger (Or Chocolate peanut butter swirl FUDGE)???? Pizza. This is the bestest food ever invented. Seriously, it has all the four food groups and it tastes the best. My favorite is a hot & sassy pizza. Hot & sassy is pepperoni, prosciutto, jalapenos, feta, and green olives. To die for!

What dish do you make perfect? I make the best chocolate lollipops. Oh! You meant like real food. In that case, lasagna. I learned to make lasagna from a cook in school. Yup, sorry, mom, mine is the best!

What dish have you messed up completely by burning or over cooking it? Bread. I swear there is a trick to making it not come out in the shape of a paperweight.
Can you give us your favorite Christmas cookie recipe? My favorite holiday cookie is my sister’s M&M cookies. I never eat anyone else’s M&M cookies. Only hers. And I never eat them at any other time except Christmas. Of course, she won’t share her recipe with me. [Scowling at baby sister] So I will share with you a recipe I make that no man, I mean no man can turn down. I call them Monster Cookies.

1 C. Margarine softened
2 C. White Sugar
2 C. Packed Brown Sugar
3 C. Peanut Butter
6 Eggs
1 ½ tsp. Corn Syrup
1 ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
4 tsp. Baking Soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In Large Bowl: cream together the margarine, white sugar, brown sugar,
and peanut butter until smooth.
Beat in eggs (2 at a time), then stir in the corn syrup and
and vanilla. Mix in baking soda and oats until well
blended. Stir in M&Ms and chocolate chips.
Roll dough into 2 inch balls and place 3 inches apart on
an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork.

Bake: 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool on cookie sheet
a few minutes, before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Now is the part where we let you do some shameless self promotion of your books, artwork or jewelry (this sentence will be centered directly towards you and your work when the interview comes up). Please tell the readers something about what you’re currently writing or what has just been released. We’re shameless when it comes to pimpin’ new stuff!

You just happen to pick the best time for this party. My latest novel, Phish NET Stalkings, is due out any time now. Here is a small blurb.

All she wanted was to find love. Was that too much to ask? How difficult could it be to find one man, the perfect man for her?

After dating the losers of the century, Jane decides there has to be a better way. She turns to an online dating service. After all, they guarantee a ‘happily ever after’ or your money back.

Jane East, CEO of ‘Not So Plain Jane’s organic cosmetics wants to fall in love with a man who makes her toes curl when he kisses her. Instead, the one man who makes her toes curl also wears ladies’ pink underwear and a badge. The pink underwear she could probably deal with, but the badge is a different story.

Ever since seeing her mother and granny Pearl murdered by men with badges, Jane has a fear of cops and anyone who carries a badge. Especially, because the killers are still on the loose and searching for her.

Former FBI Cybercrime special agent turned small-town Chief of Police, Cooper Chance, gets caught with his pants down and his family jewels tucked in pink ladies’ underwear with lacy frills when he meets the woman of his dreams. That’s not his only issue. The woman has a fear of badges. If he can get past her guard, maybe he can save her life.

*Can you please show the readers some of your most favorite work? Feel free to shamelessly promote your achievements here because we, as Goddesses, totally would!

I didn’t create the cover art, but I did write the romantic suspense stories behind the covers. 

 What is one of your most favorite pieces that you have done for yourself? If its something personal and you don’t want to show it, can you tell us about it?
One of the most personal accomplishments is having my very first poem published. It’s title is “All About Me”. It’s a very personal poem to me and I have never shared it with anyone except for those people that were in the coffee shop where all the poets read their poems one night. Even then, it was so personal I was practically in tears and was choked up while reading.

Do you ever make something and think....OoOOh! That is ALL MINE!!! ?
 Actually, I say, “I did that” every time I plant a new flower or tree in my garden and it blooms. And when I want to curl up to read a good book , I have this blanket that sits on the back of the sofa that I made all by myself. It’s wicked warm and snuggly.
Wicked”…that’s one of those New England terms I picked up since moving to New Hampshire over ten years ago. Of course, I also grew up in Minnesota and there we use phrases like “Uffda”.
