HOTTIE of the Month
Brendon Clark from the Professional Bull Riders tour, who is the man I used as the inspiration for my bull rider hero, Brady Parrish, from book one of my Buckin' Broncos series, Collision
Known to PBR fans as the “Australian Sensation,” Brendon Clark burst into the elite Built Ford Tough Series during the 2003 season. Clark has made a name for himself ever since by consistently placing in the top ten at PBR events. He won his first event in August of 2004 in Oklahoma City.
Over the last five years Clark has evolved into one of the sports leading profiles with guest appearances on the Versus television network commentary team, as well as being one of the main bull riders used to promote the sport of professional bull riding in the USA and back in his home land of Australia. His knowledge and ability to promote this sport, as well as his professional approach is second to none, which is one of the main reasons fans and media look to Clark for photos, autographs and interviews.
In his time on the PBR Tour Clark has accumulated close to $800,000 in winnings and is one of the top rated Australian riders on the World Tour. As a testament to his success, he has seen the PBR establish his own International event in his hometown of Newcastle, N.S.W., the Brendon Clark Invitational.

Since we all have a million zucchini littering up our fridges I thought now would be a good time for this recipe. It's really easy and delicious!
2 cups grated zucchini
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup all-purpose flour1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
salt to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1.In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, eggs, onion, flour, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and salt. Stir well enough to distribute ingredients evenly.
2.Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drop zucchini mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls, and cook for a few minutes on each side until golden.
What is your favorite hero's name?
MY ANSWER: I think my favorite hero is Marcus, Lord Westcliffe, from Lisa Kleypas' It Happened One Autumn. So the short answer is Marcus. The long answer is Marcus, Lord Westcliffe. I think he had a bunch of other names too, but Marcus does it for me...
My current release, Talk to Me, has been named a Top Pick by The Romance Reviews and Night Owl Reviews, and took second place in the erotic romance category of the More Than Magic published authors' contest. Here's a blurb:
Talk to Me
Radio producer Jamie MacMahon is in over her head with ex-hockey player-turned host Drew Milan. She's attracted to the man who earned the nickname “the Beast” during his playing days from the moment they meet, but he's her boss and she loves her new job. She's made plenty of mistakes with men and loathes the thought of being yet another plaything for Drew, a man who sleeps with women but doesn't date them.
Drew doesn't want to lose a great producer and knows Jamie deserves a real relationship, but can't stay away from the sizzling chemistry they create every time they're together. Jamie's insecurities and the very real prospect of having to leave a great job if this thing doesn't work out, coupled with Drew's fears about opening his heart and the possibility of losing his first competent producer clash.
My next release, Caught, will be published by Loose Id in December 2011. I'm hoping to have good news about the bull rider series and a hockey menage series soon too!
