About me


Di and San at an old bookstore in Inverness

I’m Diana McCabe, a financial journalist/blogger in San Diego, who loves to read anything in the paranormal romance genre. This is a hobby blog.  I am not paid to review books or interview authors.

How nutty am I about this? Besides all of the books stashed in my condo and car (CLICK HERE to see), I even plan vacations around the books I’ve read. I recently spent about 2 weeks in Scotland (somewhat influenced by Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander”) but I didn’t make it out of the 21st Century. (And I touched castle rocks and thought deep thoughts at haunted battlefields. That’s me in all black in the photo and my sister — also a big fan of the paranormal romance books.)

I welcome comments/suggestions/ideas/contributions to make this blog your one-stop info place for your vampire/werewolf/fae fix …. and a little romance.

Hey, Diana. Just a comment on your home page — can’t see the title – the tabs are in the way. All your links are impressive.
I’m new to blogging, too. Mine is about 3 weeks old. I write paranormal romance mostly (unpublished as of now, but still writing). I wish you had visited my blog three weeks again when I asked everyone their favorite hero — the human kind won
:-(. You can help me write a romance story, though, if you visit mariellamorgan.wordpress.com and comment on the questions in the posts. I hope to see your comments there soon. Blogging is fun, isn’t it? MM

Hey Diana! This is your sister!! I was looking at your pics of all your books and notice that you have Shadowland. Can you take that book out of your trunk or from under your bed and mail it to me?

I love that series.


Diana McCabe - January 11, 2010

Will do …. I wasn’t going to throw it out! Be glad to send it!

Daina it’s nice to me you. i to love “who loves to read anything in the paranormal romance genre. ” i am a over work, stress out college student, that dose not sleep most night, so i read. any ideas?

Diana McCabe - April 21, 2010

Ahhh — I remember college …. And I so hear ya about stress! Reading is a great escape, especially these books. OK — have you read any of the Mercy Thompson books by Patricia Briggs? Really good. If you like KMM’s Fever series, you’ll like the Mercy Thompson series. Very different stories but the writing and plot and characters are great! Also — what about something with time travel? I put Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” as a must read. I consider it paranormal bc of the time travel … but it’s a sweeping, very cool historical set in Scotland that will keep your mind off the real world!

Lemme know if that helps! And let me know other stuff you’ve read!


Diana McCabe - April 21, 2010

p.s. You also might check out the tab “what are you reading now?” Lots of good ideas from other visitors to the blog. (Feel free to post your reading faves there. It’s a nice group of folks who come back to visit a lot!)
