Mindy Lobaugh

Greetings, I am Mindy Lobaugh and I live in beautiful Juneau, Alaska, where the only access is by boat or plane.

That's right I found me an Alaskan man and married him. Actually that's not quite true we met at college, where I graduated with a bachelors degree. My husband actually had several job offers in various other states but it was I who dragged him back to his hometown to live. Guess you could say I have a wild side to me.

After marrying my soul-mate we moved soon after to Alaska where we have made our home ever since with two dogs and a cat. This place is peaceful, wild and cozy. It's true our winters can be long and dark, but I find this conducive to a perfect reading environment.

My love of romantic books probably started when I was very young and heard the fairy tale of Cinderella. As a teenager my older sister used bring home tons of harlequins from the library. Occasionally I would sneak in and take one to read. I believe it was from those books I told myself never to settle for anything less in a man than what you want and what makes your heart flutter and your body tingle. (But I digress)

I have been reading most of my life in all sorts of genres related to romance. But I would have to say it has only been in the last seven to ten years that my appetite for books has become more voracious with the discovery of romance books in time travel, futuristic, and anything paranormal that could take love to a whole new level.

It was at my first Romantic Times Book Conference in 2002, that I met Leslie Tramposch who introduced me to the PNR website and offered the idea of becoming a reviewer, as she noticed I have quite an enthusiastic side for authors and their craft. Following that conference and the more than 50 books I purchased there, I decided to take Leslie up on her offer and try my hand at reviewing. As it is I love to email an author after a good book and let them know what the magic of their words did for me. So it only seemed logical to take the next step to reviewing.
