I <3 Nicole PeelerMarch 15, 2011
I really do. Julie and Sophie and I adopted Nicole Peeler last year at Romantic Times -- basically, we walked up to her and told her that she was ours, and if she didn't like that, she'd just have to get over it. Luckily, she loves us back, and I want to share that love here. I'm so happy she answered a few questions I had for her to share here!
Rachael: I love Jane True, the main character in this fabulous series. She's funny, irreverent, sexy, and really down-to-earth. In writing the books, what was the most surprising thing you've learned about her?
Rachael: Describe your ideal day in one sentence.
Nicole: A day traveling somewhere gorgeous with my favorite lover, knowing we have dinner reservations at a delicious restaurant. That's heaven!
OR going for another trip to the House of Prime Rib with you, Sophie, Juliet, and Jana. That was also heaven! [Rachael: omg, I'm still full (and perhaps still tipsy) from that dinner.]
Rachael: So you may have gathered I'm a knitter. What's your craft (besides writing)?
Nicole: I love your knitting! For me, my craft would have to be cooking. I love having the opportunity to cook for people. I love doing really earthy, simple dishes really well. I love entertaining!
Rachael: What frivolous thing will you not be giving up for Lent? Or ever for that matter?
Nicole: That's easy: sex. Are you kidding me?
Nicole's also a smartypants: see her bio below. The first book in her AWESOME series is just $2.99 this month. Try it. You WILL like it. Promise.
