So are you ready for the last blog for a bit? Who do you think I have?
Wait until you see!
I am in the red:
1.) Can you please introduce yourself to everyone.
Hello! I'm Serena Pettus, and I live in the Florida panhandle with my husband, two kids, and a psychotic Hemingway cat. I began writing as a hobby a few years back, and now hope to make a career out of it. I currently work as a unit secretary in a local hospital, and the 3 day work weeks give me the time I need to continue with my writing. I've made the ARe Bestseller list now with every Wolfe Brothers title and with my newest, Swallowing His Pride, as well. I haven't made the top 100 on Amazon, but have made the top 100 in my category, and I consider that an achievement.
It still surprises me that people enjoy my stories, and each and every review I receive gives me butterflies when I read it.
I'm a hopeless romantic, though to meet me you'd never know. I'm a outspoken southern girl with the vocabulary of a well educated sailer ;-)
2.) Would you like to share any work you have done or doing?
The Wolfe Brothers was my first series, and by far my most successful stories thus far. I now have the entire series in one paperback book, and it's HUGE! My newest series has the first title out and the next 2 under contract. I hope to have the second done by Thanksgiving, then on to the third, who's characters have been talking to me more and more every day. So far, there's four books planned in the series, but who knows what may happen as things go along. Here's a little teaser from Swallowing His Pride for you guys.
3.) What is your favorite kind of music?
I'm pretty easy when it comes to music. Right now, I enjoy country, but then again, it depends on what I'm writing.
4.) Who is your favorite Author?
OMG! I have so many that I really enjoy reading, but I'd have to say Shelly Laurenston. Her books crack me up, and I love the characters. If you haven't read anything by here you've GOT to read her Magnus Pack series.
5.) Do you like Vampire, Werewolf, Fairy or shifter men when you read for pleasure?
I love them all!! I also really enjoy contemporary romance in my spare time.
6.) Do you have pet's?
Yes. I have a orange Hemingway cat named Binx. He's a little bit spastic and seems to love tormenting my husband. He's a character, but is very lovable when he wants to be, or whenever I'm not feeling well.
7.) Do you have favorite animal not your pet's but like wild animals?
I love cats of any kind, and snakes. Most of my friends cringe when they hear that I used to have a pet rat, but hey, I'm an animal lover.
8.) Do you like city or suburbs better?
I've lived in a small town (that has grown significantly) since I was 11 yrs old. I love it here, but whenever my kids are grown and move out, my hubs and I plan to rent out our home and move into something smaller. I'm hoping for the mountains. Somewhere peaceful where I can write and enjoy our retirement. Since I'm only 34, that will be a while. LOL
9.) If you could live anywhere where would it be?
In a cozy cabin in the Smokey Mountains. Somewhere near Pigeon Forge.
10.) Do you have tattoos? Do you want one?
I've wanted one for so long now, but I scar badly, so it would probably end up looking like brail.
11.) Do you like guys with tattoos?
Depends on the tattoo. If it's nothing but naked women and vulgar sayings, then I wouldn't give him a second glance. However, a man with a tat that has meaning, say a special quote or a memorial, then I would be cool with that. After all, it's something that's going to be with you for the rest of your life, so it should be something you're going to be proud to display.
12.) Do you have a favorite place you like to be?
I'm content just chilling at home with the family. I love to go to the beach, but since my pasty pale tail matches the sand, it doesn't love me back.
