Today we have another fun day ~~ with Elaine Cantrell.

Elaine:  I like going to movies, don’t you?

Kathy: I do.

Elaine: For one thing the refreshments are better than what I have at home, and for another the movie just looks better on a big screen in a dark room. Since I’m a romance author I’ve seen lots or romantic movies. Can you guess the name of these movies?

Kathy: I have friends I’m certain can! Let’s see how you girls do!

Elaine: 1.He was a paraplegic former Marine, and she lived on Pandora in the Alpha Centauri star system.

2.She called him Preppie, and his family disliked her, but nobody expected her to die of cancer.

3.They were both robots, but in this Pixar release they learned to overcome their model differences and find true love.

4.She was an Austrian governess who fell for her employer and helped the family escape the Nazis  during the beginning of World War II.

5.He gave his life for hers when their unsinkable ship sank in the bitter North Atlantic Ocean.

6.She didn’t realize he and his family were vampires until she had already given him her heart.

7.He was a troubled rich boy, and she’d had hard times too, but just when they got their lives together, disaster struck in 2001.

8.Julia Roberts played a hooker whose life was changed forever by one of her clients.

9.Her wedding in Greece didn’t happen, but her mother and father’s did.

10.She’s a mysterious stranger who arrives in a small North Carolina town and meets a local widower whose children like her.

Kathy: Post your answers before you peek!


Elaine: You give up?  Here’s an answer key.


2.Love Story. This one is old, but if you like to cry buckets of tears just find a copy and watch it.

3.Wall E

4.The Sound of Music



7.Remember Me

8.Pretty Woman

9.Mama Mia

10.Safe Haven

Elaine: Unfortunately, none of my books have yet been made into movies, but they’d be so good!

Kathy: Mine, either! Tell me more.

Elaine: How about this: They meet on the beach after a ten year separation, and she agrees to marry him that night, never suspecting that a mad man is intent on killing him. (Return Engagement)  This would be cool because my heroine is a movie star.

Don’t like that one?

Kathy: I DID NOT say that!

Elaine: Okay, how about this: He plays for the Green Bay Packers, but an accident costs him his job and his girl. He’s depressed until Violet Emerson enters the picture. (A New Dream)

Gee, you’re hard to please!  Try this: She’s on the fun from a crazed, psycho killer, ex-husband, and he’s a marshal who thinks she may be a murderer. (Never Trust a Pretty Wolf)

Kathy: ooohhh!

Elaine: Oh, you like that better? Good. How about this one: Thirty years after his father’s assassination, he and a beautiful physicist set out to prove that his mother wasn’t the assassin. Their only problem is that the real assassin is still very much alive and doesn’t want them to expose him.

The last book is one of my all-time favorites. Its title is Blue 52 and it’s scheduled to be released in December by Whiskey Creek Press. I hope you’ll be on the lookout for it because I really do think it’s one of my best.

Kathy: These are so terrific.

Elaine: Thanks so much for letting me come to your blog.

Kathy: I loved having you!  Come again, soon!
