Hollywood in Fiction: A discussion between authors Morgan and Jennifer Locklear and Alexandra Richland

For those of you unfamiliar with these authors, they have written books set against the backdrop of Hollywood.

Alexandra Richland spends rotating twelve-hour shifts working as a registered nurse at a Toronto hospital, indulging in her love of science and medicine and caring for patients with their own unique tales to tell. 

When she is not on duty, Alexandra escapes into her own imagination. Therein lies a fantasy world of thrilling adventure, gorgeous men, classic Hollywood glamour, exotic getaways, and a seductive dose of romance. Alexandra captures these stories in her popular novels, The Starlight Trilogy and Frontline, her novella, Slip Away, and her short story, Gilded Cage.

Morgan and Jennifer Locklear met in 1989 as teenagers and became high school sweethearts.  They have been married since 1995 and live in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States with their two children, a son and daughter.

Although both enjoyed creative writing in their youth, they have only been working as a writing team since 2010. Since then they have created a dozen full-length and short stories together.

Jennifer has been employed in fundraising and development for a non-profit organization since 2000. She also enjoys participating in charitable activities, both locally and online. In her (limited) free time she is an avid reader.

Morgan has been employed in the hospitality industry since 1998. He has been active in the local performing arts community since childhood with many acting and directing credits to his name. He is also a musician and songwriter and has recorded 6 albums.

Men of Omnific Match Game Giveaway…

Hey everybody!

Last week I promised you more details on the Men of Omnific Match Game Giveaway that will be running May 14th-18th. I’m so excited about being able to host this giveaway for so many reasons.

First-  You guys get the opportunity to win a  HUGE amount of fabulous e-books written by some of the best authors out there, and y’all know how much I LOVE exposing you to great books and those that write them. Lots of peeps have a thing for actors, or singers, and I have a few that I’m particularly fond of myself, but my inner fangurl is really directed at writers. Given the choice of spending the day with a “movie/ rock star” or an author?!? I’m choosing the author…ok, ok…with one exception coughROBcough.

Second- It’s going to be a really fun giveaway to participate in, and I’m all about providing a good time for everybody who visits Bookish 🙂

Third- You’ve all been so supportive of me and of Bookish Temptations that it’s especially nice when I can offer the possibility to give you something back.

Fourth- Several of the authors involved have gone so far above and beyond in their support of BT through guest posts, past giveaways, e-book ARCs, etc., and on a personal basis as mentors and inspirations, that I hope to support them in return by exposing new readers to their awesome books. I’ve also become acquainted with several new authors as well, and look forward to sharing them with you in the near future.

Do I hear some of you yelling “Hey Tamie, tell us how this giveaway is going to work?”

Alright…here’s the nuts and bolts…
