GET TO KNOW ME

I love learning personal facts about authors, their favorite vices, obsessions, maybe even some secrets. I'm nosey, er, curious about people. So I thought I'd do a Get to Know Me post since I never actually formally introduced myself here.



FACT: I've lived in California over 20 years, but I'm a New Yorker at heart. Yup, raised in Brooklyn in an Italian neighborhood where the men would "leave the gun and take the cannoli" if ya know what I mean. Pizza, a semolina loaf, salami, and black and white cookies were my 4 major food groups growing up. I lived a block away from the bakery in this photo, which is where the bakery scenes in the movie, Moonstruck were filmed.

VICE: Coffee. How cliche, I know, but put it this way--If I could walk around with an IV drip of coffee all day, I would. I started drinking coffee back when no one knew what a cappuccino was, Starbucks hadn't been born yet, and it sure in the hell didn't cost over $2 a cup.




OBSESSION: Halloween. Let's just say this: It's only July and I'm already buying stuff for Halloween. Actually, I started in May. Truthfully, I started getting ideas about it on November 1, 2017. It's a year-round obsession. Oh, and I dress my diva dog to match me on Halloween. She knows if she wants to roll with this family, she's got to be a good sport. The boy? He's just in it for the candy. He may or may not have been switched at birth. I'm still waiting to see whether he rises to the occasion in the future.




ANIMALS: I've had 7 cats at one time, however, at the present moment, we have 4 cats, a diva Chihuahua, a destructive bunny, and our parakeet just died. Yes, I'm open to more cats.



LOVE LIFE: I'm 50 and have never been married. I've been a single mom for the last 15 years, and only since this February on my 50th birthday did I become engaged for the first time. To a man I was in love with 35 years ago. (Awwww) Guess when we're getting married? Halloween 2020! Mwahaha!




CAREER: I'm all over the place with my writing. I've published 2 romantic comedies, The Accidental Cougar and The Meatball Mistress, an erotic romance, The Submissive Muse, and am now shopping around a young adult novel. I've also started a romantic thriller...so yeah, no set niche for me.


That's it for now. Hope everyone is staying cool this summer.

Shazam! Books! by Ripley Proserpina

July is going to be a busy month for my book releases! Like a lot of authors, writing is but one of my jobs and the summer time is when I go balls-to-the-wall Hamilton-style “why do you write like you’re running out of time?” 

So I’m really excited about these upcoming releases and wanted to share them. 

While Beauty Sleeps is a reverse harem fairytale retelling of Sleeping Beauty that releases July 24th! 

"She shall prick her finger and fall to sleep...”

There once was a girl who was born to be cursed. By no fault of her own, she was doomed to remind her kingdom of everything ugly. No matter how many good deeds she did or how kind she was, it was her destiny to die, and take her kingdom with her. Her mother and father wept when they saw her, and the witch who cursed her celebrated gleefully as each year passed. 

Except there was hope. Her sisters, older and wiser, and with no small amount of magic of their own, countered the witch's curse. If Kumiko could be loved, truly loved, the curse would be broken, and everyone would see what the witch had hidden. 

But all her life, Kumiko had been let down—by the parents who hid her away and by an ill-fated curse. 

Until they arrived. 

Four princes, full of smug confidence and pride, were determined to break the princess's curse before her twenty-first birthday. 

All they had to do was fall in love.


I’m also releasing this July, Revolution and Rising. This is the final book in my Wishes and Curses Duet, and has two of my very favorite characters who’ve ever emerged, fully-formed, from my brain. (I know, we're not supposed to have favorite children, I know.). Polya is a princess born with fangs and a tiger’s tail, and Anatoliy is a brave soldier whose misspent wish turned him into a bear.

With every wish comes a curse… 

Polya survived the Hunt, but Anatoliy did not. Now the citizens of Konstantin are rising up, revolting against the king who tortured them and the royals who allowed it to happen. 

Mourning Anatoliy, Polya struggles to continue to fight. With Anatoliy’s dying breath, she finally made her wish, and still, the bear breathed his last. 

Except, the devil heard Polya, and granted her wish. 

Anatoliy lives, not as a bear, but as the soldier he was before he was cursed. Now, he has one mission—find Polya. 

As Polya makes her away across Konstantin, Anatoliy gives chase, determined to find her. Faced with the ruin King Aleksandr wrought, and the anger of the people, Anatoliy and Polya strive to find each other and survive.

But Polya’s wish had a consequence, and the devil is biding his time. Will Polya and Anatoliy be reunited? Or will the revolution rise up, and drag them all into hell? 



And finally, I’m also releasing the third and final book of my reverse harem paranormal vampire romance, Diadem of Blood and Bones
