Winner Paranormal Romance category - Toronto RWA chapter's The Catherine Contest (2018)
Lyhyt elämäkerta
One bleary winter, Poppy Minnix accidentally wrote a novel—a paranormal romance she obsessively typed out in five weeks. Years later, she still barely sleeps, has nightmares of exploding biscuit cans when she does (it's a valid phobia!), and writes every waking minute.

She lives in Maryland with a husband who is far more romantic than she is and two delightful kids who kindly open the terrifying dough bombs for her. They are all kept busy by the best rescue lab-ish mongrel ever, and two cats who think they are dogs.

Along with authoring, she’s also the co-host of Punch Keys Podcast, an encouraging podcast for navigating the writing world.

Her contemporary romcom series, Simona Island, kicks off November 23rd, 2021 with Holiday Hotel, a festive Christmas romp that starts with a breakup escape to a Caribbean island.

Winner of the Toronto RWA 2018 Catherine Award in the paranormal romance category with My Song's Curse, published in August of 2020. Book two arrives in 2024.

I've read great reviews and had high hopes, but this one just isn't doing it for me. The island setting is interesting, as is the protagonist's job as an aromachologist. However, while the voice and tensions are strong, this was lacking in stakes and motivation for me. Xia is so driven by winning this race and so bamboozled by Apollo's presence, but their history just doesn't seem to back that up. The way she was reacting, I thought they had a terrible breakup at least, but they're just childhood best friends that didn't work out and she's still hung up on it 7 years later. It didn't seem realistic to me. And I didn't get Apollo's motivations at all. It's a shame because this really is well-written and the setting is great, but I couldn't get past the fact that, for me, the intensity of the character's feelings and reactions didn't fit the context.… (lisätietoja)

There's no backing away from the rebellion Alex started in Olympus. He cannot give in and let Olympians, otherworldlings, and humans suffer any longer, and now the siren he loves, Lula is at his side. The problem is, Zeus is after her and wants Alex's pledge of loyalty. But Alex won't bend.When Alex does the right thing, confessing he knew Lula long before meeting her, she runs? straight into the enemy, Moros', arms. The enemy who has a secret of his own.
A great weekend read that I could not set down with twists and turns that keep you on your toes.… (lisätietoja)

I chose this book as an early reviewer's copy because I thought I should try a genre I normally do not read. In the future, I will simply stick with what I know. I had a very hard time getting into the book. There was a lot of backstory between the main characters that was revealed so slowly that by the time I learned it I was bored out of my mind. Xia, the main female character, was probably supposed to be funny and confident with her life. However, she turned into a love-sick puppy as soon as her love interest reappeared on Simona Island where the story was set. From there the story stumbled on and about two-thirds into the book, it turned from PG-13 to hot and steamy (Don't let the comic cover fool you.). This does not have to be bad necessarily, but it was unbelievable and did not fit in with the characters. I also think better editing might have helped to make this a better read.… (lisätietoja)

I liked this more than the first book in the series (even though the first one was very good). Xia and Apollo have a long history together so the tension is off the charts. It is such a slow burn but totally worth it. I really liked the storyline, both people have left the island at some point, but promises were made and now there is distance both emotionally and physically. Xia is a funny and confident person, but her clumsiness was too much at times. It was a little unbelievable. I also felt like there were a lot of unanswered questions. Why did it take Apollo three extra years? What do his tattoos mean (the X in the hexagon)? I almost actually wish there was a chapter or two from his point of view. It was nice to be back on the island and see characters both old and new. Overall this is a really great series with a fantastic setting and characters. This book can be read as a standalone. I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy.… (lisätietoja)
