10 little things about Liz Carlyle


1. Favorite comfort food: Macaroni and cheese

2. Weirdest thing you like to eat: Cantaloupe with salt and pepper. I think it’s a southern thing, but I’m not sure. My husband thinks I’m insane.

3. Favorite TV show and/or favorite movie: Law and Order, the old ones with Jerry Orbach. I loved that man.

4. If you could wake up tomorrow in the body of someone else currently living, whom would you pick? Well, Madonna’s body looks good. But she works too danged hard to maintain it. I think I would just keep the pleasantly-plump, slightly sagging one I have.

5. 3 things you never leave your house without: Chapstick, sunglasses, American Express (no joke)

6. Last movie you watched: An Inconvenient Truth

7. Man (besides hubby) you think is too gorgeous for your peace of mind: Like a fine wine, Dennis Quaid has aged very well.

8. Book you’re reading right now: Daniel Deronda by George Eliot

9. What one toiletry item could you never live without? Dental floss. I’m ready for the 12-step program.

10. Which famous person, now dead, do you wish you could have seen naked? Benjamin Disraeli, because his wife used to brag about how good he looked in the bathtub. What was all that about? Inquiring minds want to know.

Liz Carlyle! One of my all-time favorite authors! I was so pleased to finally get A WOMAN SCORNED and complete my collection!

My I ask a question?

LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX, in BIG GUNS OUT OF UNIFORM was sooo hot! It's the only contemporary you've written, right? It was so good, will you write more contemporary erotic romance?

My question would be Are you working on a new book and if so, can you give us a couple of little details about it!

I'd never even heard of that lady until I saw this blog.

Hotmama, I didn't know LC has written a contemporary. I love her historicals though. The Devil series is great.

What happened to the picture with the horse? Who was that guy anyway?

I haven't read Mrs. Carslyle yet. I'll get a couple after the interview is published. Any recommendations are welcomed.

Trollop took the horse!!! And then she chased Guy Ritchie away. :/ Wonder what happened to the poor horsie...

Blogger Vicious Trollop said...

I haven't read Mrs. Carslyle either *sniff* Have I mentioned how hard it is to get books here? LOL but I will get to her ASAP. Meanwhile really enjoying Eloisa James *g*


I had to take the horse away since Harlot was abusing the poor creature. You saw how she wanted to eat Fawkes! I couldn't allow that ax-wielding maniac near another animal!

Blogger Harlot said...

I can't even go near that damn horse since it'll trample me to death! It will, i tell ya! Horses hate me. :(

Btw, it's not my fault if Fawkes gets eaten. Seriously, flying with red and GOLD feathers, he's practically asking to be shot down. :/

Lollie Rose, she wrote an anthology with Sherrilyn Kenyon and Nicole Camden, BIG GUNS OUT OF UNIFORM. Miz Carlyle not only has great talent for writing historical, but also fabulous erotic romance!

Love the Pics BBs!

Blogger Petra said...

You changed the pic again? LOL I'm pretty sure I saw a horse a while ago. Anyway, I love this one, BBs.

Hotmama, I didn't know too that LC has a contemp book. I rarely read anthologies, you see. But thanks for the info!

Everyone, pic was changed because Trollop took the horse. :/

Anyway, i'm loving the pic now. Trollop did it. :D

Ms. Carlyle you have great taste in men. ;) Love Dennis Quiad and I agree about the fine wine analogy. He is one yummy dude! :P

Hotmama, thanks for that.

By the way, great pic, BBs. I like this one better, so fitting. Liz looks like she's from the Regency era.

I don't go for anthologies either, but when I was searching out all of what Miz Carlyle had written, I saw BGOOU on her website. Lucky me!

Miz Carlyle, is it homemade mac and cheese or Stouffers? Please don't say it's Kraft!

Mrs. Carlyle I have just discovered you! I read Devil to Pay and completely fell in love with the story and the characters, especially aleric.

I went to a book store close to my work this morning and could not find any others :( We germans have little luck finding good american authors here. Will try and see if I can get the orders from the store Amazon UK :) It will be worth the international shipping for all your books.

Thank you all for your kind remarks. As to more contemporaries, I enjoyed writing the one I did with Sherrilyn Kenyon. It was a special project my editor asked me to do. But right now, my historical contract has me very busy into the immediate future. I guess my first passion is the historical novel.

Miz Liz hi :)

I love Denis Quaid. Some mornings I think I want to kick hubby out and replace him with Denis LMAO He is very sexy, is he not?

I love your writing. Have not read your historical (don't usually read antologies) but will look for it now :D

Forgot to say I love the picture! Was this painted for you Mrs. Carlyle? You look very regal :)

Can anyone tell me how I can add a piture to my comments like some of you have?

Also, is there a place where I could introduce myself?

Hi Liz! :)

Lorelei, I swear there's a Guy Ritchie pic here yesterday. LOL I didn't recognize him at first but it says LC and Guy Ritchie when you hover your mouse over it.
