Meet the delegates: Larissa

Today is the turn of Larissa, a prolific reviewer who I had the great pleasure of spending time with at last year’s Meet. You’ll just have to imagine her wonderful Dutch accent as you read what she has to say… and get to hear it first-hand in July!

larissa1)      Tell us about yourself in 100 words or fewer.

Hi my name is Larissa , an incredibly chaotic, sword wielding cowgirl from Holland who lives and breathes books of the supernatural & paranormal variety stirred with some romantic, erotic and mystery and or historic ingredients. I review some of the books I read for several blogs: Reviews by Jesse Wave, Rarely Dusty Books and Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell.

2)      Tell us something about you that might come as a surprise!

I work with a historic sword-fighting and reenactment group that does shows, workshop, movies and even book trailers (We made the trailer for Melissa Marr’s Carnival of Souls). I’m in organisation and reenactment.

3)      What do you like most about the LGBTQ genre?

Mmm apart from the absence of brainless airhead bimbo’s, the diversity of the genre. Oh hell who am I kidding! It’s the hot men of course.

4)      What are you most looking forward to about UK Meet?

Meeting the friends I made last year and spending a weekend talking books

5)      If you had one wish which would come true at UK Meet, what would that be?

Hmmm no wish really. I just hope it’s going to as good and maybe even better than last year!

  1. I think we have the hottest men at UK Meet. *looks at Bruin*

    I’m wondering what chaos we could cause with your swords and my Ghurkha kukri.

  2. Ooh, a reenactor! I’m with the Society for Creative Anachronism (aka Reenactor Lite), and look forward to talking with you!

    • LOL Cool! I look forward too! You can tell me all about SCA 🙂
      We are lite as well because the emphasis is more on the shows and the movies.
