1) Is there any one thing you simply can’t travel without?

Well, the first thought that comes to mind is clothes (haha) but if we’re talking gadgets then as an avid reader, it’s got to be my preciousssssssss Kindle: “Sophie”, named in memory of my favourite fur baby who is now sadly in pussy cat heaven.  Holidays, car journeys, shopping, doctors, dentist…the loo…where I go, she goes.

2) White water rafting or lake pontoon float?

I’ll go for the less turbulent lake pontoon float… White water rafting sounds exciting but I don’t think they do life jackets for Kindles do they?  *Grins*

3) Around the house: fresh cut flowers in vases or tons of potted plants?

Oh definitely fresh cut, although I much prefer to see flowers thriving in their natural habitat. Unfortunately when it comes to anything growing in soil,  my thumbs are more ‘black death’ (*gulp*) than the proverbial green so I tend to admire potted plants from afar…and I mean afar! Too close and I can wilt a plant just by breathing on it!

4) What is your favorite word?

Actually I have two—Harrumph and Pshaw! Lol, granted you don’t see them used much, and I’ve yet to hear anybody actually utter those exact words, but somehow when you see them written down in the right context, they do seem to perfectly express what they’re meant to portray. Personally I don’t think we Harrumph or Pshaw enough nowadays! 😉

5) If you had unlimited access to any ancient monument, where would you explore?

Definitely somewhere mystical and spiritual like Stonehenge. I can only imagine how amazing it must feel, visiting and exploring somewhere so ancient. Steeped in mythology and lore, the atmosphere must be palpable in a place as mysterious as that. Although knowing my luck I’d probably anger the spirits of the Druids and end up unleashing the pagan god of a thousand pustulating pimples! So perhaps not! Disneyland’s been around a long time hasn’t it? Perhaps I’d be safer exploring there! Lol.

1) If you could safely have any animal as a pet what critter companion would you choose?

I’m a cat person so if I could I would have a big cat like a tiger or maybe a jaguar.

2) Rocking dance club or cozy little pub?

I love to dance and have done my share of clubbing, but these days it’s definitely a cozy pub, preferably with some live music and a good beer selection.

3) Sunrises: Get up early or stay up late to see them?

Before I was a mom it would probably have been stay up late, but with my daughter’s school schedule it’s get up early whether I want to or not!  If I had a choice though most days I’d be sleeping through it.

4) What is your favorite word?

What does it say about me that my favorite word is a curse word?  Since this is a classy blog and I’m a classy lady I’ll default to enigma.

5) This is a Leap Year–how will you commemorate/celebrate Leap Day?

Leap Day will probably be spent trying to catch up on all the things I didn’t do the day before!  Maybe I’ll get to sneak in another book – do you have any recommendations? 🙂


Debra started reading gay romance in 2012 and hasn’t stopped since!  tardisShe has a TBR that can’t possibly be conquered in her lifetime, but that doesn’t stop her from adding new books daily.  She couldn’t be happier to be sharing her love of the genre as a member of the Sinfully blog team along with Monique, Mark and Macky.

1) Are there any holiday treats you look forward to every year but never eat any other time?

Oh for sure, for me being in Germany it has to be Lebkuchen, a very traditional cookie made with all the traditional Christmas spices of cinnamon, almonds, ginger, etc. Goes great with a cup of tea. Also very British, but I love a bit of Yule Log.

2) Snowy days: Go outside for playtime or stay inside where it’s warm?

Both actually, I love playing and going for walks in the snow but then coming back into a warm home with a cup of tea and Lebkuchen makes the treat even more special.

3) Bake and eat gingersnaps or bake and make a gingerbread house?

To be honest I don’t do either, sorry. For me it would be ginger schnapps rather than snaps though – lol! Can we talk about that instead?

4) What is your favorite word?

Now this is a difficult one but seeing it’s Christmas then for me it has to be “Yuletide.” I just love the sound of it and its history or etymology with its roots in the ancient Germanic, it’s fascinating.

5) Is there a candid photo of you from the holidays you just love for whatever reason?

Ahem, of course but thankfully I have successfully managed to keep them off the internet until now, phew! But yes, I have some rather embarrassing ones at the work’s Christmas Party, I think everyone has, and of course the one with the traditional fugly Christmas sweater. I think the one I love the most though is one of my father, brother and myself with our fugly Christmas sweaters on and Santa hats. This photo makes me smile as you can certainly see the love of a family and the resemblance my brother and I have to our father. Of course mum was the one behind the camera 🙂 Always good for a snap shot mum was – lol!


Sinfully Gay Romance loves books! Hot ones, happy ones, Merry Christmas2funny ones, fuzzy ones, erotic ones, old ones, dark ones, soppy ones, tear-jerking ones, heart-warming ones, but most of all, the need to be ALL MALE ROMANCE ones! The blog began in September 2012 when Becs and Monique kicked things off. Since then it has grown from strength to strength, complemented by Mark joining the blog team in June 2013 and further enhanced by the arrival of Macky. Since the departure of Becs in November of last year, the site has been re-named and we are now a fully functioning All Male Romance review blog.When we have decided to read and review a book–which is sometimes like choosing from a box of chocolates–we go to work. Well, it isn’t really work when you’re doing something that you really enjoy!
