All About Janelle

Janelle Denison (Who also writes erotic romance under the pen name Erika Wilde) finds it hard to believe that it's been over 25 years since she first started writing romance novels. At first, it was a way to pass idle time while her husband worked swing shift, but before long it became an obsession to get published. Luckily, she kept at it (it took her over 5 years to get that first book published!) and she is now a Waldenbooks, Barnes & Noble,, and USA Today Bestselling author! Now, after selling over 50 plus novels, she finds that her Plotmonkey pals help to keep her stories fresh and unique, and she can't imagine writing a story without their input. Janelle lives in Oregon with her husband, Don, along with two teenage daughters that keep life interesting.

I have a confession to make.  My holiday guilty pleasure is . . . watching the Victoria’s Secret Holiday Fashion Show on TV.  I tell my husband that I tape/DVR it for him, but the truth is, I LOVE watching those models in all their elaborate wings and costumes.  Do you have a holiday guilty […]
