I hope everyone had a great weekend! We sure had beautiful weather here in Ohio.

And now for the main event of the day...
Alex J. Cavanaugh is hosting another blogfest. This time it is all about your favorite genres. So head on over and sign up if you want to join in on the fun. It's a great way to meet lots of new wonderful people!
One blogfest, four favorites!
List your favorite genre of:
And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories!
Favorite movie genre: Action/Adventure
Growing up with two brothers influenced me more than I thought. When we went to movies it was either James Bond, Arnold Schwarzenegger or Star Wars/Star Trek. I fell in love with the fast pace and quirky moments of humor. My current favorite: Avengers
Favorite music genre: Almost anything except Jazz
This one was really tough for me because I love all sorts of music. Classical and opera top my list but I don't usually listen to those while I'm writing. Lately I've really gotten into the music of Red, Evanesence and Within Temptation. For some reason they speak to my writer's soul and get my creativity flowing. My current favorite (I keep putting it on repeat): Hymn for the Missing by Red
Favorite book genre: Historical non-fiction
Even as a kid I soaked up history. I was enchanted by the Arthurian legends and while that might not be history, it got me excited about all things in the past. I moved on to Middle Age Europe and then the French Revolution. Lately, I've added some Asian history to the mix. But recently I've been trying to widen my horizons and I've really enjoyed some sci-fi and fantasy as well. Current favorite: Taj Mahal: Passion and Genius at the Heart of the Moghul Empire
My guilty pleasure: Comedy movies
Anything that makes me laugh so hard that I cry. It could be romantic comedies or spoofs or even stand up comedians. Current favorite: Jim Gaffigan's King Baby
