The Award Winning Series

Novels, Horizon and Infinity, written by Tabitha Lord, have both been getting rave reviews on her virtual book tour, hosted by iRead Book Tours.  You can find my review of Horizon here on Mystery Suspense Reviews as well.

Part of the pleasure on going on tour with an author is the opportunity to learn more about the author and her writing process.  From ideas to editing to marketing and more, every author has their own methods.  The more we learn, it seems the more we want to know.

That is why today’s guest article is so much fun.  Ms. Lord shares more about herself, and not all book related.  You’ll enjoy reading this one!  Check out the tour below as well to find more information on the touring books as well as other interviews, articles and reviews.

And now, Tabitha Lord…

Five Random Things

By Tabitha Lord

When I discover a new writer, I always go straight to the “About the Author” page. After all, if I’ll be spending the next several hours inside this person’s imagination, I want to at least know a little bit about them! But let’s be honest, the information provided on the back cover is often pretty generic, and usually a little boring, mine included. So, in the spirit of fun and making new reader friends, here are five random, and hopefully more interesting, things about me – things you won’t find on the back cover!

1. When a book is too suspenseful, I get stressed out and read the ending first. I always go back and read it through, but this takes the edge off so I can relax and enjoy the story without worrying about the end. I know it’s cheating!

2. I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro for my 40th birthday. It was very, very hard. Not Everest hard, but still a huge physical and mental challenge.

3. I’ve been married for 24 years. My husband and I were young and broke, but four kids and a lot of work later and we have a pretty terrific life. And my children are some of the finest people I know. I’ll take a little credit. In our house there aren’t many rules, but the important ones – respect, good manners, and personal accountability – are non-negotiable. Honestly, though, they are their own people and just came into the world full of awesomeness.

4. Zombie apocalypse or alien invasion? This is a serious debate in our house, and we discuss contingency plans for both.

5. I really am a sci-fi fan. Star Wars remains my favorite movie of all time and I consistently beat my children at Star Wars Trivial Pursuit. It’s not even a fair fight.

If you are a sci-fi fan too, I’ll be at Boston Comic Con this summer and RI Comic Con in the fall. Please stop by and say hello!
