The weekend is officially here and I for one am glad to see it arrive. I get plenty of time to read and for me that’s the best thing ever.
Today author Mimi Riser joins us and just reading the titles of her books inspires me to seek them out. As a young girl I was enchanted by fairy tales and with titles like Samantha White & The Seven Dwarves, Tina Takes a Tumble and Sherwood Charade what else could you think of but the romance of the HEA a fairy tale delivers.
So grab a beverage or a snack and help us Welcome Mimi to the RJ Blog.
One lucky poster will receive their choice of either Samantha White & the Seven Dwarves or Tina Takes a Tumble.

Medieval Time-Travel Romance
Coming February 2008 from Amber Quill Press
Some are born to greatness. Others have it thrust upon them. Marian Allanson would prefer to avoid it, period. Emotionally scarred, and haunted by nightly dreams of the mythical Robin Hood, Marian is limping through life till a mysterious quirk of fate tosses her and twelve-year-old street kid Orlando Konstantinos centuries into the past.
Now she’s on a full-scale run through medieval Sherwood, threatened by the Sheriff of Nottingham, and discovering there may be truth to the myth, after all. A forest phantom appears out of the shadows to rescue her from death, then disappears again, leaving her to a different danger in the form of a forced marriage to Lord Roland of Hunterdon, a man hot enough to melt a maid’s skivvies (despite the fact underwear hasn’t been invented yet). To make matters worse, when the old sheriff is murdered, Roland steps into the job with plans to kill Robin Hood, unless Marian can stop him. Or will Roland be the one to die?
With the questions striking deeper than Robin’s arrows, and a sudden uncertainty as to who’s the villain and who’s the hero, “Maid Marian” has much more to worry about than her missing unmentionables. And speaking of missing, where the devil is Orlando?… Before the secrets crack open and the dust clears, an unlikely heroine will rise from her own ashes, a legend will be rewritten, and a love will be forged strong enough to conquer time.
