By Liv Rancourt, author of Forever and Ever, Amen The other day I took on a project I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. Pulling from my Pinterest Do I Know You? board, I printed off black and white copies of a dozen different men and turned them into a calendar for my girls at work. I mean really, there’s no reason for our shared office to be boring, right? The men in question range from Cary Grant and Sean Connery to Ian Somerhalder and Ben Affleck. They cover a wide range in age and acting ... Read more >

By Nan Comargue, author of Power Play Before I ever turned my mind to writing about professional athletes, I was already a fan. I know a little about rugby and a little more about baseball but my true sports love has always been hockey. Of course, when I was a little girl, I thought sports were for boys, more or less.

What is it about these men that appeal to readers? Can it be their imposing height, raw masculinity, good looks, or impressive knowledge and use of weapons at their disposal? For me, the appeal is embedded in who these men are. Vampires, werewolves and demons are evil creatures. Evil creatures shouldn’t be heroes. Vampires are ... Read more >
