Happy Hump Day!

Hello Peeps!  Welcome to HUMP DAY!!!!

Today’s Hump Day is awesome.  We have an awesome author spotlight and I got my test results back from my thyroid doctor.  5 Years Clean!!!!  No cancer!!!!!  Woo hoo!  So happy for great news.  Not many know this but back in 2012 I was diagnosed with Hurthle Cell Thyroid cancer.  This is a rare and aggressive form of thyroid cancer.  I went through three surgeries, two radiation treatments and several scans.  I was lucky, my tumor was still in the capsule when they took it out.  It was a very scary time for me.  But with the support of my loving husband, family and friends I made it through.

Speaking of luck, did everyone enjoy thier Saint Patricks Day?  Did you see a little green man or find a pot of gold?  What did you do on Patty’s day?

So this weeks author spotlight is on one of my favorite authors…….J R Ward!!!!  I love this author’s series the ♥♥♥♥Black Dagger  Brotherhood♥♥♥♥.  I stumbled on this series literally.  I was walking in the book store and tripped on the corner of a box set of books in the clearance section that was sticking out on the floor.  Turns out it was BDB.  It was a 6 book box set for $10.00.  I read the back of the box and decided “What the heck, It’s only $10”.  I am sooo glad I did.  She is at the top of the New York Times best selling author list and pretty freaking awesome.  So let me introduce you to JR Ward, author on my want to meet list.  🙂

Don’t worry.  We will find some sexy men to add in here somewhere 😉

J.R. Ward her books are incredible!!! The black dagger brotherhood series omg!!!! She's a geniusJ.R. Ward is the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series of vampire books. She is a winner of the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for Best Paranormal Romance and is a multiple RITA nominee. A graduate of Smith College, she was a double major in History and Art History with a medieval concentration in both and she still longs at times for a return to those days sitting in dark lecture halls, looking at slides of old triptychs and reliquaries. Prior to becoming a full time writer, she was a corporate attorney, serving for many years as the Chief of Staff of one of Harvard Medical Schools premier teaching sites. Her idea of absolute heaven is a day filled with nothing but her computer, her dog and her coffee pot and the Brothers, of course.

  1. Hooray for being cancer free! So happy for you and hope it stays that way for the rest of your awesome life! 🙂 I didn’t do anything for St. Pattys Day except get tacos. Did you do anything fun? Also, I tried reading the Bourbon Kings series and I thought they were awful, lol. BDB is so overwhelming! I stopped reading early on but I’m definitely amazed at how long it’s been going. Happy Hump Day Patty!

    • Thanks Nel!!! ❤ You are the second person to tell me they didn't like the Bourbon Kings. I really haven't picked them up because of the negative feedback. As for the Brotherhood. I am addicted. I love them. Saint Patty's day was spent taking my son and his girfriend to the movies and decorating my great niece Lola's birthday cake. 🙂 busy bee that's me. lol
