Blogs are social media, and that means we socialize with each other. So join the crowd here at the GET SOCIAL Blogger Event between June 4 – 17 to meet some new people.
Introductions are in order, so:
Who am I?
I’m a writer named Ed Hoornaert. Don’t let all those Flemish vowels scare you, because the last name is easy to say: hor-nert, like Little Jack with a ‘T’ on the end. I currently live in Tucson, Arizona, though I’ve also lived in Vancouver, Chicago, Nelson, Gilford Island, Clearwater, and Avola, the last five places being in British Columbia, Canada.
What else is worth knowing about me? Well, I’m a certifiable Harlequin hero, having inspired N.Y. Times bestseller Vicki Lewis Thompson to write her Rita Award finalist Mr. Valentine. I started out writing romances for Silhouette Books, but these days I concentrate on science fiction romance.
In addition to novelist, I’ve been a teacher, principal, technical writer, salesman, janitor, and symphonic oboist. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for umpteen million years. We have three sons, a daughter, a mutt, and the galaxy’s most adorable grandson — and soon (next month) it will be TWO grandsons. Woohoo!
What do I write?
Here’s a taste of my most recent science fiction romance, Newborn.
She was born to kill. Not love.
Jo Beaverpaw is born fully grown, well-armed, and impatient to tackle her Destiny … which is to kill her alien nation’s most wanted fugitive. Her life is pre-programmed and straightforward – until she meets the sexy bodyguard of her intended target.
What if Schwarzenegger’s robot assassin in the original Terminator had been a bad-assed (yet petite) female? Find out in Newborn.
