I'm a mom and work full-time. How I find time to read I'm not sure but I do. I have been reading ever since I can remember. I always find that if I'm not reading something, I feel empty. I recently bought an eReader so that I can ALWAYS have my library with me :-) Since I have been introduced to a number of different books since I bought my eReader, I thought it made sense to start a blog to share not only my love for reading with others, but also new and interesting reading material.
My name is Meghan Foster and I'm going to save you from yourself.
That is, if a certain someone doesn't stop me...
Don't let the pretty face fool you. I am a product of a seriously troubled past, but I'm a resilient little bugger. I'm a night shift stock replenishing machine and if by chance, you don't think that sounds too exciting? You are sorely mistaken, my friend. This is my life. I can't explain it. I won't even attempt to try.
I do have certain powers of persuasion that I am more than willing to use, especially if aforementioned 'certain someone' doesn't interfere.
His name is Lance and he is by far the most delicious creature I've ever laid eyes on. I have no idea who he is or what he wants with me, but I guess I'm about to find out the hard way...
Who says stocking shelves is boring?

around, I raise my hands and cans of various types begin to fly off the shelves
and hurl toward him from all angles. Just as fast as they’re flying, he stops
each one within inches of his body and they drop to the floor.
Man, I hate this dude. Is there nothing I can
do to one-up him?

head; his face looks a bit confused. Just as soon as his head turns, I flick my
wrist and a can of peaches screams off the shelf and hits him.

a fraction of a second.

“Gotcha”…or “How ya like me now?” Or something clever like that. My mouth has

He’s pissed. I mean…pissed. Like his eyes are glowing kind of pissed. I have no idea
what he is, and suddenly I am full of fear. I do what every self-respecting

I turn around and run

Anlyn Hansell is a 40-something wife and mother of one residing in a small town in South-Central PA. She has a BS in Distribution, a Masters in Business and an overactive imagination to boot. Writing credits previously included all manner of extremely boring ISO documentation, a published editorial on core sand in a foundry magazine and a recurring article in her company newsletter. Not much chance for creative writing there! She began her writing career two years ago, and in that time, has completed seven full length novels. The first four novels centered around romance, but she quickly began including a mystery element to keep the pages turning. She enjoys cooking and baking and of course, indulging in the products of those pursuits. She not only loves to write, she is compelled to do so. Every morning, starting at around 3:30 am, you can find her in her living room tapping away in the dark. It truly is the best time to write! She is currently working on yet another endeavor with the sole purpose of keeping her readers up well into the night.
The story-line in Night Stocker is definitely different from other paranormal stories I've read in the past. I'm not sure if it's because of the humor and wit or because it wasn't one of those "I don't want to believe what I'm seeing or hearing because creatures like this are not supposed to exist" type books. Whatever the reason, I LOVED IT!!!! I loved the humor, I loved the wit, I loved the characters and I loved that the main female character wasn't afraid to speak her mind and stand up for herself.
The relationship between Lance and Meghan did kick things up a notch but it wasn't a sappy love story either and I like that. I like that it wasn't a "perfect" relationship type story. I also love the visual Meghan had of Lance. I mean who would not want to work with someone who looked like Adam Levine and have him fall in love with you.
Night Stocker was a great read; easy, funny and well worth the time.
