Like most authors, when I’m not writing or reading, I am refilling my tanks with the juicy, creative mojo that is television.
I am about as picky about my shows I am about my books, and here are my top five favorite TV shows.
- American Housewife. American Housewife is a hilarious and seriously en-pointe look at the middle class, American wife and mother. Her struggles are my struggles, but she does it with a lot more humor than I do. She’s chubby, hates to socialize, can’t stand her own kids, and is just as tired, annoyed, fed up, and sweatpantsy as I am. I love Katie, I love her insight, I love how she says what other American moms are thinking and feeling. This show is a breath of fresh air.
- Into the Badlands. This show has everything my cheesy Kung Fu movie loving inner child longs for. It’s over the top, bloody, fun, and the story just pulls you in. It would be easy to just let the action and blood turn the show into a campy trash dump, where all good plots go to die, but it is a fabulously wonderful show that keeps me on my toes. This show is fun, fun, fun, and the music is awesome! Thank you, Mike Shinoda, for giving us that luscious beat I’ve come to love in my Linkin Park albums.
- Lucifer. Shame on me for loving a show about my mortal enemy, the Devil. But I can’t help it. Fox has done an amazing job turning the Lord of Lies and the Deceiver into a sexy humanoid who makes me laugh, smile, cry, and…<shock of all shocks> root for him! This show is absolutely my guilty pleasure.
- Game of Thrones. My husband and I were a little late to the GoT party. We didn’t start watching the show until a month before the start of the sixth season. While there are some naughty bits and gross elements, we deal with those with well-timed shouts of “boobies!” and some eye diverting. The rich, chaotic, beautiful world of Westeros sucked me in from the very beginning, and dragged me along for six seasons, making me fall in love with then mourn incredible characters. This show is bloody, terrifying, magical, awe-inspiring, disgusting, grotesque, and quite possibly the best show on television…but not quite.
- Supernatural. Goodness…what can I say about this show? Eleven years ago, I saw my very first Supernatural trailer. It was a snapshot of a brand-new show about two handsome brothers, travelling the country, hunting and killing things that go bump in the night. Right up my alley, but I wasn’t getting my hopes up. Well, eleven seasons later, I am a die-hard Winchester fan. My relationship with Dean and Sam isn’t one that most female fans would have. While I agree these two men are the epitome of male perfection, I do not look at them as if I were angling for some Winchester lovin’. I grew up with these guys, I’ve been with them through thick and thin, heartache and triumph, failure and victory. They are family. I feel like their sister, along for the ride in the family Impala. How strongly do I feel about this connection… Well, my pen name is proof enough of my devotion to these kick-butt monster hunters.
This show is by far my most favorite of all the live-action TV shows (Animated is most certainly Avatar: The Last Airbender), and I look forward to spending time with them every week—and sometimes three times a day, via NetFlix.
Well, now that I’ve shared this top five list, I have a hankering for cheeseburgers and milkshakes, classic rock, and some wendigo hunting.
Guilty of a terrible crime and dogged by a sense of obligation he can’t shake, Gaston Mosier hopes to find a little peace by getting himself hitched. Maybe his new wife can help him feel human again.

Gaston only wanted to marry a quiet, simple woman, someone who could keep him company and bear his children. He didn’t expect to find outspoken, startlingly beautiful Aimee waiting for him at the stagecoach station.
What’s Gaston to do with a bride who riles him as no one ever has? What’s Aimee to do about a groom who is more cold shoulder than warm welcome?
One seeks redemption, the other seeks protection, so what happens when trouble finds them both?
