About Me



So.  You want to know about me.  Well I live upon a mountain top where fairies and giants roam.  I listen to the sounds of dragon songs as I swing myself to sleep.  I live in this land called La-La, it’s where I prefer to stay.  Come visit me sometime won’t you?   When not at La-La I live in North Texas  Surrounded by lots of  country, many animals, lovely children and husband.

I am an avid reader and book obsessionist.  I try to keep the reviews honest and to the point.  I started Booked & Loaded in January 2012 and its primary focus is on reviewing books, talking about books, and other book related random topics!

I read and review (typically) the following genres:   paranormal romance, urban fantasy, sci-fi, romance, steampunk, horror and paranormal mysteries.  I prefer my heroes and protagonists to be adults with adult situations. I also have a special place in my heart for humor and snark.

I love reading new authors!

I am a bookworm who lives in North Carolina with my hubby and two fur babies. My mother introduced me to reading at a very young age and it is very rare that I am found without my nose in a book or a book with me. There was a time when I wanted to turn into Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden, damn it that did not happen.

My reviews are to the point as I do not like to read long reviews, so I do not write long reviews. I typically prefer to read paranormal romance, sci-fi romance, romantic suspense, and BDSM.
