I’m a big fan of Elle Kennedy – she’s such a prolific author! It seems that she can write in pretty much whatever genre she would like and be successful. I can’t decide which of her books are my favorite, on any given day it changes.

I reviewed Elle’s latest book, Addicted, just yesterday so anyone that read that knows I’m a fan. Another favorite of hers is her Off-Campus series, which is New Adult. The Score will be coming out in September and I cannot wait. I know a ton of her readers are huge fans of those sporty books. Her m/m crossover books Him and Us, written with my other favorite Sarina Bowen, are USA Today bestsellers. She also wrote Paper Princess with yet another favorite of mine, Jen Frederick, and that one has been on both the New York Times and USA Today bestseller list. So when I say she’s awesome I am not alone in thinking this.

BD: What is your least favorite word?
EK: Moist

BD: What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
