I rule the TV remote in our house (now that we are empty nesters!) Except if Don gets up before I do, but then he goes to bed when the sun sets, and once more I claim the TV. When I need mindless noise, I choose either the murder shows–ID, TruTV, Snapped–that features foresenic science or great detective work, or paranormal ghosties, aliens, mysteries.
In book stores, I’m drawn to the same. I have several books by Sylvia Browne, and haven’t read but 3. And true crime books, a bunch of those still stacked in the to-be-read basket. (The pile kept falling over so I tossed them in a basket!)
I truly keep thinking that my next WIP will have some of these elements, but it hasn’t happened yet.
