GUEST POST: Lissa Matthews

My Latest Coffee Indulgence

I want to thank the gals here for having me over to visit this week. I hope they've enjoyed the Blue Jeans and Hard Hat books. I know I really enjoyed writing them. They hold special places in my heart, everything about them from the music (Neil Diamond for months), to the little bits of D/s, to the varying personalities between the friends. I don't know what anyone else's favorite is but mine is, Cracklin' Rosie.

But again, I am honored to be here this week, to be featured with my books.

In two of them, there's mention of coffee and if anyone knows me, they know I love my coffee. In Cracklin' Rosie, she just wants a cup of coffee and doesn't care beyond the caffeine. In Forever in Blue Jeans, Blue and her hero Cort, are coffee snobs a little, preferring French press coffee over drip and Blue in particular loves iced coffee.

Well, so do I. When it comes to coffee, I have two current guilty indulgences: 1. Dark Chocolate Campfire Mocha from Caribou Coffee which is a deep, rich, thick, coffee touched hot chocolate complete with whipped cream and mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips on top. 2. Starbuck's newest frappuccino, the Mocha Cookie Crumble. There are no words other than a frozen chocolate frappe with coffee and chocolate cookie crumbles and chocolate whipped cream. It's just...damn, y'all...now I need one. And when it comes to these two drinks, there's no want or boy that would be nice, feeling. No, it's pure and simple NEED!

Living in North Carolina, talented, multi-published author, Lissa Matthews, has many loves in her life: Family, friends, NASCAR, football, music of all kinds, cooking, BDSM, and last, but not least, coffee. She loves it so much she and those who know her are surprised she hasn’t floated away on a caffeine-induced cloud while giving life to feisty heroines and hunky heroes.
Lissa’s love of romance came from every book she has ever picked up. No matter what she read, she fell in love with the written word. The promise of escape, the deep, intriguing characters, and the winding journey from beginning to end, constantly drew her into bookstores and libraries as she was growing up.
Her first stories were written in junior high and she kept it up through college. She would stay up late at night when her kids were little reading romance and still penning her own stories. In 2007, when she and her family moved to North Carolina from Florida, she began pursuing writing as a profession and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else… Well, except maybe writing in her own cupcake bakery/coffee shop. But that dream is a ways down the road… Lucky for Lissa, she believes in dreams coming true.
Lissa is married with two children and seven, yes, seven cats. She blames her oldest child for the cats.
