ThrowbackThursdayThis week’s Throwback Thursday is so very close to my heart. Lynn, my mother-in-law lost her battle to cancer three years ago this month, but I found this picture from 2010 and just had to post it. Her laugh… man it just made me smile… So here’s to you, Lynn!! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Happy Throwback Thursday, my friends.

4-words with THEO BRADFORD

4-word interviewwhitebackground

Hello, everyone. Emma Martin here. Are you ready for another four-word interview? I’m having such a great time with these characters…well, and the authors, too.

If you’re new to the blog, here’s how it works. I get to ask four questions, but they can only be four words long, and the kicker is…they answers have to be four words or less as well.

Why four? Well…why not? That’s just how I roll.

So…let’s get started!


Today we have our own REESE MONROE’s character THEO BRADFORD. Reese writes his story in the Bound by Hades Trilogy. It was actually pretty cool meeting another one of Lynn’s characters. 

And let me tell you, Theo is badass. He can kick demon-ass big time. Might need to recruit his help with the Vamp’s thinking they can settle here on campus…

Don’t let his size fool ya, he may be a huge tower of muscle, but he’s just a sweet little teddy bear, especially when talking about his girl, Sadie. 

Book #1

EM: Describe your first kiss…
TB: Rooftop and…intense.

EM: Favorite sweet treat…
TB: Sadie’s strawberry candy-laced kisses.

EM: Favorite time of day…
TB: Sunrise it’s usually demon-free

EM: Fondest childhood memory is …
TB: Kicking brother Justin’s ass.


Okay, so isn’t he a sweetie? He may have a scowl–and even growl a little sometimes–but don’t let that fool ya!

You can find the Bound by Hades books HERE!

Happy reading, my friends!

Remember the boom box radio? Cassette Tapes? Or maybe just this movie? **le sigh**

Lloyd Dobler was AWESOME. Such a quirky, funny, loving, protective hero, huh?

He just makes me smile.

Tour de Scottsdale


TdSIf you follow my Facebook or Twitter, you might have seen some pictures from the Tour de Scottsdale. Me and my sweet hubby did the 70-mile bike ride. It was my FIRST group race-type situation, and let me tell you, starting out with hundreds of people around me…kinda intimidating. 

But…now that it’s all over, I can say I’m kinda proud of the accomplishment. Last year I ran a marathon, so this was another thing to check off the list, so it’s exciting. 

Here’s a little picture of me and my sweetie holding up our medals we got for finishing the 70-miles. 


So…onto the next adventure:  207 mile bike ride to MEXICO!!!
