Isabel Jordan writes because it’s the only profession that allows her to express her natural sarcasm and not be fired. She is a paranormal and contemporary romance author. Isabel lives in the US with her husband, teenage son, a neurotic Shepherd mix, and a ginormous Great Dane mix who answers to the name Jerkface. (Don't feel bad for him. He's really a jerk.)
Now that the normal stuff is out of the way, here’s some weird-but-true facts that would never come up in polite conversation. Isabel Jordan:
- Is terrified of butterflies (don’t judge…it’s a real phobia called lepidopterophobia)
- Is a lover of all things ironic (hence the butterfly on the cover of Semi-Charmed)
- Is obsessed with Supernatural (hated the ending), Game of Thrones (REALLY hated the ending) , and Dog Whisperer.
- Hates coffee. Drinks a Diet Mountain Dew every morning.
- Will argue to the death that Pretty in Pink ended all wrong. (Seriously, she ends up with the guy who was embarrassed to be seen with her and not the nice guy who loved her all along? That would never fly in the world of romance novels.)
- Would eat Mexican food every day, if given the choice.
- Reads two books a week in varied genres.
- Refers to her Kindle as “the precious”.
- Thinks puppy breath is one of the best smells in the world.
- Is a social media idgit. (Her husband had to explain to her last week what the point of Twitter was. She’s still a little fuzzy on what Instagram and Pinterest do.)
- Kicks ass at Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
- Stole her tagline idea from her son. Her tagline idea was, “Never wrong, not quite right.” She liked her son’s idea better.
- Breaks one vacuum cleaner a year because she ignores standard maintenance procedures (Really, you’re supposed to empty the canister every time you vacuum? Does that seem excessive to anyone else?)
- Is still mad at the WB network for cancelling Angel in 2004.
- Can’t find her way from her bed to her bathroom without her glasses, but refused eye surgery, even when someone else offered to pay. (They lost her at “eye flap”. Seriously, look it up. Scary stuff.)
