Interesting facts about Fiery Tales Author, Lila DiPasqua .. *CONTEST*

At age fourteen, Lila’s best friend sneaked a romance novel out of her grandmother’s house. After devouring it, Lila was hooked on romance novels for life. Today she lives with her real-life hero husband and three children and is a firm believer in the happily-ever-after. She loves history and enjoys traveling. She has been to four continents so far. Weaving in interesting historical facts she discovers during her travels, Lila writes stories about historical alpha-heroes and the heroines who make them lose their hearts.

Her novels, AWAKENED BY A KISS and THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED are featured in Doubleday as well as Rhapsody Book Clubs.

Here are some fun facts you probably don’t know about Lila:

Favorite color: Red

Favorite love song: WHEN I’M WITH YOU, by Sheriff. The lead singer is Freddie Curci. His voice is *incredible* and I think he still has the record for holding that final note the longest in recording history!! I’ve no idea how he does it! As an interesting tidbit, I’m sort of related to him (though I doubt he remembers me!) Years ago, his sister married one of my cousins. But I’m not in any way selecting this song for that reason! I just absolutely love it. *swoon* I had the privilege of meeting him in person at the wedding. And yup, incase you’re wondering, he wrote a magnificent song for his sister’s wedding and sang it like an angel. *sighs*

Favorite men’s fragrance -- Dolce & Gabbana , Light Blue. My husband wears it! Regardless of the fragrance---Ladies, I ask you, is there anything finer than when a man smells oh soooo good? ;)

Favorite Romantic Comedy – I add a new favorite to my long list regularly…LOL. My recent add is– Leap Year. Such a cute movie!

QUESTION: Tell me some of your favorite things! :)

PURCHASE The Princess in his Bed Now!

Lila will be giving away a copy of THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED to one lucky commenter , plus---in keeping with the holiday season, she's sweetening the pot with a signed Christmas ornament in the shape of a Cinderella slipper ( in celebr
ation of her Cinderella retelling out Aug 2011) and a copy of Stud Muffins! (This book isn't written by Lila so she's not signing it). The cover for Stud Muffins says-- Luscious. Delectable. Yummy. (and Good Muffin Recipes, too!)....LOL! The book has great muffin recipes and pics of all around treat of a book! *winks*

My favorite thing is seeing the smile on my boys faces when they get off the bus. This is my first year as a stay at home mom and I love how happy they are to have me home.

@ Cindy L---Oh, Cindy...How lovely!! I know what you mean. I so loved it when my children were really little and I'd pick them up from Kindergarten or pre-school. That giant smile on their face as they came running full speed toward me, arms stretched open wide...I miss those days! Now that they're a little older, it isn't "cool" to do that when mom shows up at school. *sighs*

They grow so fast!

Thanks for sharing that with me! :)

Lila DiPasqua said...

@ Valerie---I love your list, except the fresh cut grass. My allergies would kick in there. lol

Lila DiPasqua said...

@ Scorpio M.---Oh! Put me down for all those things, too! They're all wonderful. My favorite chips---now this is going to sound weird if you can't get this flavor where you are, but it's lime and pepper flavored. It's AWESOME. :)

Lila DiPasqua said...

@Nicole---LOL! Fabulous list!! I love it all! Thanks so much for sharing with me. I'm glad you're enjoying AWAKENED BY A KISS. :)

Lila, both your covers are beautiful. I'm putting PRINCESS IN HIS BED on my list. Can't wait to read it.

A few of my favorite things are pepperoni pizza, the TV show Castle, a steamy historical romance novel, my house decorated at Christmas, and my #1 favorite thing--my husband.

Hi Lila! Some fav things:

rereading books I love like the Narnia series, Tintin, Anne of Green Gables (and lots of romances...) - it is like hugging and chatting with a good friend!

getting home after a long day, or being at home when my husband arrives!

Sleeping in

Chocolate (though I really shouldn't just before bedtime - makes for some CRAZY dreams!)

Sleeping in (did I already say that?)

Leap Year! (along with The Mummy, Black Beauty, Sweet Home Alabama...)

Another fun, reflective question - thanks Lila!
