Dancing, is another consuming hobby. I met my husband on the dance floor. If you have a sharp eye, you may notice the 'Forever Tango' poster behind my head in my author's photo. We've taken ballroom dancing (Latin) lessons and we're always visiting nightclubs seeking great DJs. Live music (the local Chicago band, Seventh Heaven, is an all-time favorite) can be wonderful, but the audiences at live shows tend to just stand there and watch the stage, so that we usually prefer venues with a DJ.
Holidays are a big deal to me with Halloween being the highlight of the year (hey, I am a horror writer). Ghosts hang from the tree branches, lights cover the bushes, the front lawn becomes a graveyard, and a skeleton bride and groom peek from the windows. Kids are pretty excited to trick or treat at our house!
