Liz Marie from Swept Away By Romance: Dare to Tell the Truth with Kayla the Bibliophile


Check out blogger Liz Marie from

Swept Away By Romance

What would you say is the most embarrassing thing you have done or had done to you ?

Oy. I cannot believe I'm about to admit to this! You are a bad, bad influence *evil glare*!! Let's just say that there was a moment in my life when I was very ill with the flu, and, as the flu will do, it decided to engage both ends of my body in a tug-of-war the likes of which I have never before or since experienced. I was experiencing the kind of stomach cramps that would not allow me to get out of bed or walk. What does one do when one's own body is betraying her?? One soils herself, from both ends, in bed. And, then, you may ask? Well, then I proceeded to lay there for several hours until I had the strength to roll myself out of bed and crawl to the bathroom, whereupon I slid into the tub and scrubbed myself raw. Needless to say, my poor bedding was never the same....

Craziest Fan moment ?

Uh...well, you have to understand, I was a child of the 80s. On my thirteenth birthday, my friends took me to see *cough* Night Ranger *cough*. We were, um, excited...you might say. We were feeling very adult and a wee bit naugh-tay ;-) Soooo....we somehow arranged with someone to get backstage prior to the show. You have to understand, for me? That in itself was crazy with a capital C! However, the story gets worse (cringe). We were standing around at the band entrance, outside of the arena, when I begin to hear this very familiar yell. In fact, it was my name being yelled. In fact.....IT WAS MY NAME BEING YELLED ACROSS FOUR LANES OF TRAFFIC BY MY MOTHER, FOR GOD'S SAKE, WHILE SHE RAN FROM OUR STATION WAGON, ACROSS FOUR LANES OF TRAFFIC BECAUSE SOMEHOW SHE KNEW WHAT WE INTENDED TO DO. Everyone around me suddenly acted like they had NO idea who I was or what I was doing there. As you may imagine, I never did get back stage to, er, pay my respects to Night Ranger, and I enjoyed this songhttp://youtu.be/z92bmlcmyq0 with my mother sitting next to me. Oh, the horror!

Favorite book and or author ?

Truly, I detest this question! How does ANYONE choose just one?! Can you??
The book that has stayed with me and affected me just a little bit differently than any other book I've read (plus it made me ugly cry until I nearly heaved!) is The Edge of Never by JA Redmerski. I read it almost right after it went up on Amazon as a self-pub, and....yeah. I have no words.
Most recently, the book I read that I now OBSSESS over is Real by Katy Evans. That's followed very closely by Going Under by S. Walden, After Hours by Cara McKenna and Own the Windby Kristen Ashley. But, I'm also UNFORGIVABLY behind on reading, so there are way, way too many books I haven't gotten to yet!

Pick one !

Import or Muscle car

Eh. Cars. I could care less as long as it runs. For me, import. For my father, I'd choose a muscle car and give it to him.

One Direction or Justin Bieber

WTF?!?! WHO??

White, Dark or Milk Chocolate ?

Mmmm......dark, please. I need a moment now........

Sam or Dean ?

I don't understand the attraction to either of them, frankly *shrugs*

Commando , Boxers or Briefs ?

I tend to go commando, thanks for asking.

Damon or Stephan

The only thing these questions are succeeding in doing is making me feel ANCIENT! I have zero idea who either of these people are....

Wine or Mixed drink ?

It depends on the day I've had and what my ultimate goal is *wink*

Coke or Pepsi ?

Diet Coke, my friend, is the breakfast of champions. Truth.

Biker boy or Rocker dude ?

Why are you limiting me?! Hmmm?? I fit nicely right in the middle of one of each!

Whips or chains ?

Just try and get near me with a whip. Just try it. It's like the fascination with butt sex. I cannot fathom the attraction. Chains? Only on my tires in the winter. Those are not my particular kinks, as you may have guessed. I'm more of the chase me, make me, rough me up type. And thank you Jesus that my mother will not be reading this. She won't, RIGHT?!

Do you believe in vampires?

Had a friend in high school who was convinced she was one. I said, hey, as long as you keep your teeth to yourself, we're cool.

If you could have a super power what power would you pick?

Is excreting money a super power? 'Cause I could REALLY make use of that one! Okay, fine. I'll go with flying since I have no car at the moment.

Screamer , moaner or silent ?

Girl, if you aren't wailing like a banshee, what's the freaking point?!

Ever been arrested if so what for ?

As if. I'm a delicate flower. Hmph!

Who is your celeb crush ?

Dave Grohl of The Foo Fighters....sexy beast!

Author you'd love to bang ?

This is awkward. I read mostly female authors, and, sadly, I don't swing that way.

What would you do with your super power if you had it?


Would you abuse your super power? How?

Uh...duh. See above answer ;-)

What is your favorite alcoholic beverage?

I can't remember the name of it, but I know there were MANY kinds of alcohol in it, and it lead to a very interesting evening.....

Do you ever leave home without panties on ?

Please refer back to the commando, boxers or briefs question!

Have you ever had sex while at work (any job)? If so, where?

Better question...have I ever focused on my job while having sex. Mmmm....maybe.

What is the strangest place you ever had sex?

What?? But...no. I'm untouched. WHAT IS THIS DIRTY BUSINESS?!

What turns you on more, reading a sexual story, watching a porn or listening to sex?

Reading. Without a doubt.

What profession do you find the most arousing sexually?

Mmmm....when they guy's dangerous....or has a dangerous job. Semi-criminal, nefarious gangster, cop, military...etc.

Does size matter ?


Do you or have you ever had a “cop” fantasy?

Considering one of my previous answers, I think you can probably guess that, yes, indeed, I have ;-)

Do you or have you ever had a“Delivery Guy” or “Service Man” fantasy?


If you were on a bus and got a glimpse up a pantiless girl’s skirt would you keep looking?

Ewww. I don't even wanna see mine! Why would I wanna stare at some stranger's???

Ever been caught doing the dirty ? spill it !

Sort of. It was mortifying. And, no, you aren't getting any more than that!

What is the strangest sexual experience you’ve had?

What do you consider strange? I swear that tractor was askin' for it.....

Ever swung for the other team ?

Nope. Shall we make out now???

Funniest sexual experience you've ever had

You just won't let the damn tractor story go, will you?!

Most embarrassing sexual Experience ?

One could conclude that you are overly preoccupied by this topic, couldn't one??

What would you do if you could be a guy for a day?

I'd do everything that allowed me the joy of experiencing what it's like to NOT live with a double standard.

How would you describe yourself so that someone could pick you out?

Fat, dumpy, plain, no makeup, wears glasses, light brown hair, blue-gray eyes, pale as death, serious junk in the trunk, usually glammed out in old t-shirts, lounge pants and flip-flops.

Just kidding! This is yours truly:



What's the last thought in your head that involved someone you like?

The last thought in my head that involved someone I like was “Why?”

What is a question you want me to ask you?

Why did you agree to this??

What is a question you refuse to answer?

Anything political because I'm passionate about that topic and tend to alienate people.

Any tat's or piercings ? if so where ..

Pierced ears

Biggest turn on ?

Intelligence, but not without ego. Quiet confidence. Raw and genuine talent.

Biggest turn off ?

Bigotry, sexism, ignorance, condescension

A fantasy you haven't fulfilled yet ?

Yup. It's a serious one. A goal more than a fantasy. That's all you're getting.

Your stand on sex toys ?

I don't stand on my sex toys, girlie! They're costly and they can be put to MUCH better use!!

Pet peeve?

Poor grammar

So tell us something nobody knows about you ?

Anyone who is going to actually read this knows nothing about me, so that could cover a lot of ground. I'm incredibly sensitive about certain things and can get my feelings hurt too easily. I wish I could be a more positive person, and I wish I had more confidence.

What did you think while reading these questions ?

I think you're a loon and have a preoccupation with sex, but I also think you're highly amusing and very curious....two very good things in my book :-)

Thanks again for being here, we had a blast and hope to have you back again soon . Did you have anything else you’d like to say before we go ?

Well, I would like to take the opportunity to tell everyone to feel free to interact with me, chat with me, get to know me, on my personal Facebook page (Liz Marie https://www.facebook.com/liz.marie.1840?ref=tn_tnmn), and please stop by the page I review for, Swept Away By Romance https://www.facebook.com/SweptAwayByRomance?ref=hl to have a look around, give us a like and interact with all of us there, too. I review for Goodreads and Amazon, as well, so you can always find me there. I read and enjoy traditionally-published books, but, more and more over the last several years I've been LOVING indie books and authors. Romance is my genre, and I read about any romance sub-genre, though I'm not overly fond of PNR, Sci-fi, etc. At the moment, I read a lot of New Adult. I think it lets me relive my youth. HA!

Thanks for having me! This was more fun than I anticipated ;-)
