Bloggie friends, please meet lovely author Barbara Meyers, who is much better at titles than she thinks she is! Let us all applaud her answers to my stupid questions.
1. Who would win in a war between cats and bears?
I think cats would win. They’re sneaky and fast. They find good places to hide and they excel at surprise attacks. Plus, they can be annoying. I think they’d wear the bears down and the bears would just give up.
2. Would you rather get a diagnosis of Benedict Cumberbatch or Engelbert Humperdinck?
Engelbert Humperdinck. It sounds like something could actually be seriously wrong with one of your important body parts. “Apparently, Ms. Meyers, you have an Engelbert on your Humperdinck.” Plus I had a bit of crush on E.H. in my youth.
3. If you could have any fantasy creature for a pet, what would it be and why?
It would be a cross between a coffee table and a dog but wouldn’t require walking. It could retrieve things for me, like my glasses, the remote, a cold beverage, a snack, place them on its coffee table back and bring them to me so I wouldn’t have to get up.
4. Are aliens among us?
Have you met some of the frightening beings masquerading as people who are out there in the everyday world? Of course there are aliens.
4A. Since there are aliens among us, what would you name a romance about them?
I SUCK at titles. Shifty Shades of Space?
[Editorial note. I like it. Maybe Shifty Shades of Shpace? Could have a hero with an adorable speech impediment.]
5. Speaking of horrible aliens, how would you help Justin Bieber off the planet?
He’s already off his rocker (rocket?), isn’t he? I’m not sure he needs any help.
6. If you were a superheroine or -hero, what would your special power be?
I’d like stealth capabilities, like a cloaking device that makes me invisible and undetectable. Since I sometimes feel like I’m invisible anyway, it’d be interesting to really be invisible. Imagine where you could go and what you could find out.

NOBODY'S FOOL by Barbara Meyers
She’s home to make amends. He’s out to get a little revenge. But the heart he breaks could be his own.
The Jolie Kramer who left Oak Ridge isn’t the same one who’s home for her ten-year high school reunion. The old Jolie hid her secrets and insecurities behind her popular-girl image.
The new Jolie is older, wiser, and ready to make amends for the bridges she burned. Especially the one between her and Court Harrison, her biggest supporter since childhood.
Court hates to admit he’s still hung up on Jolie, and he’s vowed to finally put the past way, way behind him. She wants to kiss and make up? He’ll give her a taste of her own medicine. Make her fall for him—only this time, he’ll be the one walking away.
But his plan works a little too well, and by the time he realizes their feelings are real, it’s too late. She’s onto him, and he’s lost the only woman he’ll ever want. Unless she falls for plan B, which contains two things she can’t resist: a career challenge, and a chance to get a little revenge of her own.
