We love Jeaniene Frost here at RT — it’s true! — and we can’t get enough of her Night Prince series, so it’s a good thing the latest, Bound by Flames, came out this week. And while we know and love the books, we were curious about the author who pens them. So in today’s Unbosoming, we get personal with Jeaniene herself!
What was the first book you read that meant something to you?
Skye O’Malley by Bertrice Small. It was my introduction to the romance genre. As you can see, that introduction ended up having a lasting effect on me.
What book do you wish you could live in?
Since I mostly read Paranomals, I’ll have to say none of them. I love to read about creatures that go bump in the night, but I’m too much of a chicken to live in a world where those creatures were real.
What book are you an evangelist for?
It depends on the genre. For Romance, anything by Kresley Cole or Gena Showalter. For Urban Fantasy, anything by Ilona Andrews or Kelley Armstrong. For New Adult, anything by Jennifer L. Armentrout or Cora Carmack. It’s impossible for me to narrow it down more than that. It already hurt cutting out so many of my other favorite genre authors to make this list!
What trope most mirrors your life?
Walter Mitty syndrome, because I spend half my life in reality and the other half in the stories rattling around inside my head. At least now, making up stories is my job, so I don’t get quite so many strange looks.
What book has been in your TBR pile the longest?
I don’t know because my TBR pile is now taller than I am. As the saying goes, so many books, so little time!
If we pulled up next to you at a stoplight, what song would you be shamelessly singing?
I wouldn’t be. My singing voice is horrendous. I can’t even bear to hear it.
If your ghost haunted a place, where would it be?
My home. I like it there.
Who do you want to hug right now?
My husband. Hey, think I’ll go do that now!
What do you do when you’re feeling discouraged?
Eat sugar and carbs. I love them, as my hips can attest.
If you could only vacation at one place for the rest of your life, where would it be?
Orlando, Florida. I love the theme parks. They bring out the kid in me.
What’s your favorite thing to do with your spare time?
Watch shows on TV or read. Hey, just call me a story junkie. 🙂
