Ten Things You Don’t Know About Me

A guest post by

Louise Caiola

Well, let’s be honest here – there are lots more than only ten, right? After all, I’m just starting to get acquainted with many of the readers out there. But, for the sake of this post I’ll divulge some mild “secrets” of the personal kind.  How many of these pertain to you, too?

  1. I’m claustrophobic. Do not, repeat, do not like elevators or MRIs.
  2. Obsessive much? Guilty as charged. I am a first class late-night ruminator.
  3. I firmly believe that without dogs in the world, people would be less human.
  4. I’ve never met a honey-barbeque chip I didn’t dig.
  5. Stars are for wishing on and I still do.
  6. Give me a beach chair, a blue sky and a book, and I’m good-to-go for hours.
  7. I once came in second place in a Best Jeans-Butt Contest. (Was that TMI?)
  8. I have seen every episode of Friends at least twice, conservatively.
  9. My prized collection of Nancy Drew mysteries was destroyed in a flood.
  10. The characters I meet in my stories truly become part of my family. Even the not-so-nice ones.

So, if by now you still choose to get a closer look inside my head, (and I hope you will) check out my newest book and be sure to let me know what you think. Have a great day!


Louise Caiola Bio

As a young girl who spent her allowance on Nancy Drew mysteries, Louise realized that one day, she might have a story of her own to tell. Maybe even more than one story. After years focused on raising her children she eventually reconnected with her passion for creative writing. She soon began to craft a large collection of short stories which were published in the inspirational online magazine, Shortly thereafter, she authored her first novel, Wishless, a contemporary YA, released in 2011.

Louise devotes a portion of each day to honing her skills. She has several other novels currently in various stages of development. A confirmed bibliophile, Louise enjoys reading outdoors on a warm spring day and watching her pup chase leaves on a breeze. She looks forward to meeting others who share her love of the written word and invites you to visit her blog, her website and follow her on Twitter and Facebook.


The Making of Nebraska Brown

Add it to your Goodreads shelf / Amazon wishlist

The last thing eighteen-year-old Ann Leigh remembers is running from her boyfriend in a thick Nebraska cornfield. This morning she’s staring down a cool Italian sunrise, an entire continent from the life she once knew. The events of the eighteen months in between have inexplicably gone missing from her memory.

All at once she’s living with Tommy, an attractive, young foreigner asking for her continued love. Though he’s vaguely familiar, she recalls a boy named Shane in America who she reluctantly agreed to marry. Juggling a new world while her old one is still M.I.A is difficult enough without the terrifying movie scenes spinning a dizzy loop in her mind: glimpses of a devastating house fire, a romance gone wrong, an unplanned pregnancy, and a fractured family – each claiming to be part of who she once was – a girl and a past somehow discarded.

Ann Leigh must collect the pieces of herself to become whole again, but she doesn’t know who to trust especially when Tommy’s lies become too obvious to ignore. And above all, her heart aches to discover what became of the child she may or may not have given birth to.

The Making of Nebraska Brown tells the story of one girl’s coming apart from the inside and the great lengths she’ll go to reclaim herself and find her way home

About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.
