Music I listen to

I'm a fan of R.E.M, Chris Isaac, Metallica, Moody Blues... Isn't that a pretty strange mix of bands? Anything with a strong background that gets your mind racing...

My Favorite Songs:
Chris Isaac's "Wicked Game"
Tracy Ullman's "They Don't Know About Us"
Moody Blues "Your Wildest Dreams
Monster Ballads "I Need You Now"

What do I like to watch

Once the kids are tucked into bed at night, it's my turn to enjoy a little television, not that there anything wrong with PBS Kids or Noggin in the afternoon... SIGH... image

Primetime Television

At the moment I'm really enjoying American Idol, Smarter Than A Fifth Grader and re-runs of Family Guy, which I never thought I'd end up loving so much. I'm looking forward to the return of Hell's Kitchen. There's something so satisfying about watching that brash Chef Ramsey. He simply fascinates me, though I've no idea why... I recently tuned in to the BBC here on American cable television as well. I find myself enjoying some of the most unusual British television shows at times.

But, deep down I'm a Food Network and TLC sort of girl. I grew up watching PBS television in the evenings, so shows associated with cooking, science and learning usually have my attention when my "shows" aren't on...

One of my worst habits at night is flipping stations over and over, staying up far later than I should, watching re-runs of shows I've already seen at least a dozen times or more... image Why do I do that?

About the author: For years I was an avid reader of historical romantic fiction... At least I was before I began writing my own novels. Before I started writing, my favorite novelist was definitely the author Julie Garwood. I would have read anything she wrote. If I should say my style of writing mirrored anyone's, it would have to be hers. She was just such a fantastic storyteller. Others who I read faithfully were Catherine Coulter, Linda Howard, Jude Deveraux... And I was a fan of the irresistable Silhouette Special Edition novels as well... Now a days that kind of time is no longer a luxury. As the mother of two, I'm lucky to find time to read the back of a cereal box... In the quiet hours of the night though, I do manage to tuck myself away in a quiet corner to relax and write...

Current Projects - Right now I'm working on two books for my website, The Quiet Corner. The first is Silent Hearts - Sequel to Silent Mysteries. The second beginning in June is Calignous, an all new kind of online drama, unlike anything you've ever read before. Check them out anytime as they are free to read and enjoy while they are being updated on the website each week.

On sale now! The orignal medieval novel Silent Mysteries...

Available on Amazon.com - at 617 pages, Silent Mysteries probably one of the largest, most fulfilling novels you're ever going to read. Best of all? While this novel is a complete work unto itself, the book continues in a sequel that you can enjoy online day or night, FREE to read for as long as it's in production! Come see what all the fuss is about and decide for yourself if you are ready to begin the incredible journey in discovering the mystery of Kyra...

AND NOW! THE J&J CLIPS!

BRAND NEW! This is the first video I ever made for a challenge that was hosted by The Deveraux Clan. Please enjoy my vision for Kiss From A Rose!

The Pond! It's taken me almost six months to get back to clipping, but I'm back. This is the remaining part of the island clips that I hadn't posted before. It's on Youtube and on my website now. Enjoy the pond and the ending cave clips.

Clip #1: How's about a little dip, J&J style? Could holding Jennifer so close effect Mr. Deveraux's determination to remain friends? You'll have to watch and see...

Clip #2: Tango, anyone? Perhaps the second time around the dance floor would be Jack's undoing, eh? In an attempt to make up for his deception the night before, Jack takes Jennifer in his arms for a second time on the cruise...

Clip #3: "I love you, Jack..." Sweeter words could never have flowed from Jennifer's lips than they did during this monumental moment on The Cruise of Deception. I still find myself enjoying this clip time and again. It was simply beautiful!

Clip #4: This is simply one of my all time favorite J&J video creations. I have never found one that moves me more! It is Everything: By Lifehouse! It features the love between Jack Deveraux and Jennifer Horton from Days of Our Lives, and it's just beautiful from start to finish. Check it out! How can you NOT love this song?

Clip #5: This is a video which will probably remain fixed on this page forever. It is one created by our own DI2CJNJ from Devoted to Deveraux. It features the infamous kiss that Jack and Jennifer shared at the Spectator. It was created with an enormous amount of love for the writing project Diane and I worked on together for Miranda's Corner... It's, I Believe In You - One moment in time...

Clip #6: DI2CJNJ said it best in her description for this video. Jack loves Jennifer, it's just that simple. I was so inspired by this touching video that I felt myself wanting to update all of the videos on this page because of it. Here is, Jack & Jennifer: All I Know...

Who am I

I'm an aspiring romance novelist.

I just recently completed my first full length medieval romance novel called Silent Mysteries. You can enjoy reading that book and the rest of my work at http://www.thequietcorner.com. There is a lot more to love over there than just Silent Mysteries, but please come and discover the mystery of Kyra at Damon Manor...

For those who enjoy Matthew Ashford and Jack Deveraux the way I do, you can also enjoy the wonderful collection of clips I've put there as a special treat. Before I found D2D, I was enjoying the same form of entertainment that I see so many other people are...

The main reason I'm now a member of Yuku is the wonderful compay of The Deveraux Clan. What a wonderful bunch of people over there!

What else do I enjoy?

Some other hobbies I like quite a lot are knitting, quilting and learning to cook different things like bread, pasta and desserts from scratch. Hey, I'm a mom... Although now that the kids are getting older I find myself able play with these crafts less and less... LOL!

Want to know more?

There is a small biography you can read at: http://thequietcorner.com/Misc_Pages/about_author.htm to learn some more interesting tidbits about me and my life. I've led a pretty unique one so far, that's for sure.

    Hi Leanne,

    I have been on the board a looooong time. But, I will admit to a two your vanishing act due to moving, ending up on dial up and then having a baby. So, I understand why you don't actually know who I am. But I'm back now!! image

    I've been meaing to drop you a line, I love your website. I've been spending quite a bit of time there looking at everything!

    See you around the board!

    Thanks Leann,

    I was a little unsure at first but got more comfortable as time went on. Everyone here was so nice when my son had surgery earlier this year. I hope to see you around and look forward to some good discussions.
