Just for fun today I’m sharing five of my favorite things.

1.  Favorite DD/Spanking Book(s)

The Falls Chance Ranch Series by Rolf and Ranger. This is a four book (and counting) M/M DD series. The main characters are a poly family of men who run a ranch in Wyoming and also a very exclusive rehabilitation program for stressed out and burned out corporate executives.It’s not your typical DD book. It deals far more with the emotion and psychology behind DD relationships than any other writing I’ve ever seen, including nonfiction writing on the subject. It’s extremely well written, in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong. There are dozens of spanking books that I have enjoyed, but if I have to pick my favorite, this series wins hands-down.  It’s the one I’ve read so much That I have sections of it memorized. It’s my ultimate comfort read, and that I myself going back to it again and again.

2. Favorite Mainstream Book(s)

The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.  This is an eight book (and counting) series about a World War II era combat nurse it steps through a circle of standing stones while on holiday in Scotland with her husband just after the war and falls 200 years back in time. To be honest, I first picked up this book because I heard it was one of those rare mainstream books that included a spanking scene. It does, more than one, in fact, over the course of the series. I don’t consider it a DD book though because none of these happen within the context of a negotiated DD relationship. It’s purely what is normal at that period in history. It, too, Is a series of books I’ve read over and over again, particularly the first book. (At last count, I think I have read it seven or eight times.) It is also recently been made into a television miniseries. I’ve enjoyed the miniseries, as a TV show. It’s not a bad adaptation of the book, in my opinion, but it’s not the book. The books, as always, – in my opinion at least – are tons better.

3. Favorite Movie

This one is a tossup between Dead Poets’ Society and Children of a Lesser God.  The teacher in me loves Dead Poets Society. Robin Williams is amazing, and I just love the idea of being able to inspire students like that. (And yes, it’s memorable because it’s a mainstream movie with a spanking scene. Come on, you know what I write. What do you expect?)

Children of a Lesser God is a little-known movie with Marlee Matlin and William Hurt. Matlin is a janitor at a school for the deaf who had been a student there herself. Hurt is a teacher there. He is hearing; she is deaf, and they begin a rather volatile and passionate relationship. I love Matlin in this movie. She’s fiery, passionate, sometimes very crass, and very troubled. She pretty much shatters every myth of people with disabilities being sweet, innocent, and asexual. It’s awesome. 🙂

4. Favorite TV Show

NCIS, without question. I’m a crime show junkie, and watch tons of real-life police dramas and police procedurals (and now we all know why the majority of my HoH characters work in some form of law enforcement or military 🙂 ).  This one is my favorite, hands-down. I love the characters. It also has a lot to do with how I started writing. Some of my first writing that I shared publicly was NCIS DD fanfic. Eventually I moved from there creating my own original characters, but I consider that to be where I got my start.

5. Favorite Color

Yellow, although I am also partial to blue and green. Yellow is just such a bright sunny,sunflower happy color.
