I love romance novels - all kinds. I love music - some kinds. I have strong opinions about both and I like to share them.

<p>I'm particularly fond of queer historical romance, especially those set in the Regency period.&nbsp; I've been reading a lot more contemporary novels recently, and I love books in a series - especially if they feature athletes!</p>

<p>John Irving,<strong> <a title="A Prayer for Owen Meany" href="" ; target="_blank" rel="noopener">A Prayer for Owen Meany</a> </strong>- for many years, I gave this as a Christmas gift to anyone I knew who loved books.&nbsp; I recommend it to anyone, even if you aren't a John Irving fan (I'm not).</p>
<p>Donna Tartt,<strong> <a title="The Secret History" href="" ; target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Secret History</a> - </strong>well.&nbsp; It's just excellent.<strong><br /></strong></p>
<p>JK Rowling, <strong><a title="Harry Potter" href=" ://" ; target="_blank" rel="noopener">Harry Potter</a></strong> (all of them!) - seriously, they're amazing.&nbsp; If you stopped at book one, you must be tired of hearing people tell you 'you should have kept going.' Just in case you aren't, I'll say it again - keep going.&nbsp; THEY'RE AMAZING.</p>

<p>Happily ever afters; dual PoVs; strong female characters</p>

<p>Authors who tell me how to feel.&nbsp; I'm not reading a textbook - it's supposed to be romantic!&nbsp; I'll figure the feelings if the author sets the scene and develops the characters.&nbsp; I don't need to be told whether or not I like someone or what he/she is doing.&nbsp; I can decide for myself thank you.</p>

<p>Professionally, I'm a middle school PE teacher.&nbsp; I love having my summers off - and <strong>hate</strong> admitting I live in Florida.&nbsp; It was an accident.&nbsp; I promise.</p>
