Do you have any bad book habits?

I love to break the spines of my books. As I open them to read them, I fold them back until it pops. Aaaaah! Love that sound! And I love that my book will lay open.

E-Reader or print? and why?

I’m fine with both. I love how a book feels in my hands, but I also like being able to have multiple on one device.

One book at a time or multiples?

Anymore it’s one book at a time. I don’t have time for multiple. But when I was out on maternity leave with my kids, I read several books at one time. I also read a book a week. Oh, it would be so lovely to have that kind of time again.

Dog-ear or bookmark? (don't worry—Librarian Judith won't hold it against you—much)

Both! If there’s important information on a page I want to save for later, I dog-ear it. Normally, though, I use a bookmark, which is usually any scrap of paper I happen to find sitting around.

When do you do most of your reading?

Whenever I can squeeze it in. Most days it’s before I go to work or when I’m home at lunch. Sometimes I read before bed, but I’m usually so tired I don’t last very long. I also read at my boys’ wrestling practice. I have an hour and half to really get into books!

Do you loan your books?

I do. I’m more than happy to share my books with others if they’re interested.

Re-reader or not?

Not normally, but there are a few books I’ve read multiple times, including Alice in Wonderland. LOVE that book!

What would make you not finish a book?

If it doesn’t hold my interest, I won’t finish it. Life’s too short and there are too many books in the world to read something you don’t enjoy.

Keep books or give them away?

I keep my absolute faves and donate the rest—but only because I don’t have the space to keep them. It’s really hard for me to give books away. They hold such memories.


Dating a demon has its advantages, like helping deliver souls to Hell. Wait...what? Katie’s world has been turned upside down. She's fallen for Josh—despite the fact that he’s a demon from Hell. Wes is finally out of her system and her life. Convinced she can change Josh, she sets out to make him a better person, only to find out things aren’t as simple as she’d originally thought. For one thing, Josh has Katie help him deliver souls to Hell, and she kind of likes it. And to top it off, other more powerful demons are battling for her soul, and revelations from the past could change the course of her life forever.


A red light shone in front of them, growing in intensity as they approached. It was reminiscent of the last time she was in Hell, and she expected to see the edge of a cliff that overlooked a red lake. Instead, they stepped into a massive cavern. In the middle was a pit that sucked every last ounce of light from the immediate area. Katie imagined that was probably what a black hole looked like. Demons of every shape and size milled around the wide space. Wings flapped above her, and her gazed drifted upward, but she couldn’t see the demons, only their glowing white and red eyes. Was it because of the darkness or was the cave so massive? She didn’t know. Her gaze drifted back down. Katie instantly noticed large, black, winged creatures and heard the distinct buzz of Tormentors. She tensed, wondering where they were and thankful the sound wasn’t close to her ear. Hell Hounds zipped through the crowd, and white demons with fire-red eyes towered above them all. They looked almost like bats without wings. Their skin had a leathery sheen, their eyes were beady. Fangs protruded from their lips. Her heart skipped as she looked at them. Dread tried to push through the other feelings, but it couldn’t. Despite the heat, a chill ran through her. But so did fascination. The demons were unlike anything she had seen before, and they were so thin and frail looking, Katie was amazed they were upright at all. She thought a gentle breeze would snap them in two.
