It is my great pleasure to welcome Ashley Ladd to Book Reviews & More by Kathy. Ms. Ladd graciously answered a few get to know you questions for us today.
Kathy: Do you have a favorite book or author you like to recommend? Do you have a comfort read?
I love The Stand by Stephen King. I also recently read I’ll Be Watching You by Tina Wainscott that was excellent so I highly recommend that.
Kathy: What is your guilty pleasure?
Going to the movie theater. I love watching pictures on the big screen and munching on a box of milk duds.
Kathy: Favorite meal?
It depends what mood I’m in. A ham and swiss cheese sandwich on rye with a bowl of vegetable soup on the side. Also lobster tail with rice pilaf and spinach. Also Cincinnati chili spaghetti and cheese. I can’t decide which of the three is my favorite.
Kathy: If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
A computer engineer or computer programmer. My father advised me to become a computer program (like him) and of course I didn’t. I’ve regretted it ever since.
Kathy: If you could time travel, what time period would you visit?
The 23rd or 24th century, hoping it would be the Star Trek version of the future so I could travel on a starship around the stars with someone like Captain Kirk and Spock. I sure hope it wouldn’t be a Terminator type future.
Kathy: Thank you so much for chatting with us today. And congratulations on the release of Business or Pleasure.

Tommy Boudreaux is extremely attracted to Guy Rogers even though he’s a passionate vegetarian and animal rights activist and Tommy’s family owns the most popular barbecue joint in town.
Guy Rogers is extremely attracted to his new realtor, Tom Boudreaux. As a passionate vegetarian and animal rights activist, he’s ecstatic that Tom is a kindred soul. He could never be with a carnivore. Unfortunately, Tommy isn’t really a vegetarian or an animal rights activist. He never said he was, either, he just didn’t eat meat when he was with Guy. And maybe he emptied his house of all meat and dairy products before inviting Guy over. In fact, Tommy’s family owns the most popular barbecue restaurant in town and, if his family has their way, he’ll manage the new location.
When Guy finds out that Tommy eats meat and his family owns a restaurant that’s a monument to eating meat, he’s livid and doesn’t know if he wants anything else to do with Tommy.
But then Guy’s life gets crazy—his dad’s paranoia blossoms into violent dementia, Guy gets arrested for picketing a doggy mill then he winds up in even more legal trouble. When Tommy sticks by him through all his problems and does everything he can to help him, Guy wonders if he’s been too militant and narrow-minded. Perhaps he can learn to live with people who have opposite views.
