Barbara Hodges brings something a little different to her paranormal romances, exploring boundaries and going beyond them in her writing to create something highly entertaining. This makes her a fantastic e-book author youíll definitely want to check out.|

Today, she spends her time with the many Basset Hounds she collects (the live ones), and does decorative painting on anything thatíll stand still long enough. Sheís most passionate about Basset Hound rescue (donít shop, adopt!).
Some of her favorite things include: her hubby, her friends, her mom, her nieces, her houndies, NASCAR, chocolate, cooking shows, Survivor, American Idol, and Dancing with the Stars.
