Jayne Hitchcock here. As a writer, some people have preconceptions about me. When they hear me speak or see me at a book signing, I’m usually dressed to the nines. I have a BMW (an older one, but it’s in great shape, so it looks newer) and a pretty good looking husband (if I do say so myself). When it comes to Q&A or socializing after an event, it’s funny how many think I sit at home at night with a glass of scotch and read Shakespeare, Tolstoy or some other dead author’s works.
When I tell them I prefer crime thrillers, fantasy, horror and sci-fi, they are mildly appalled.
They would probably be more appalled if they knew what else I liked. For TV shows it ranges from Bones to Rizolli & Isles to Under the Dome, Tosh 2.0, Ridiculousness, Celebrity Name Game, The Following, Warehouse 13, Haven and Antiques Roadshow. Music is mainly new country, rock and hard rock, with a little Lady Gaga, Five Finger Death Punch and Adele thrown in.
Movies range from the Fast & Furious franchise to Star Wars (the original ones, pfft), Lord of the Rings, Red series, Connie & Carla, Moulin Rouge, anything with Harrison Ford or Jason Statham in it and animated movies.
I am just not in documentaries, dramas, historical, political, etc. I like to be entertained. I live enough in the world of cyber crime every day that when my day does end, I want to get lost in a story or music.
So, what are your guilty pleasures when it comes to entertainment?
