Gettin the low down on Ms. Beth Kery & **Update** Giveaway!!!!

Get a cup of your favorite drink, pull up a chair and get comfy ~ because today we are going to give a warm welcome to a wonderful lady I have had the pleasure of getting to know...
Please welcome Ms. Beth Kery to the Hussy Lair!

Welcome Ms. Beth! I want to thank you so much Ms. Kery for coming over to my place!! Kick back, relax and enjoy yourself!

BK: I will, thank you for the hospitality, Ms. Cecile.

If I picked up a book called Ms. Beth Kery - All You Want to Know... What would the blurb be??

Geek by day, creator of shamelessly sexy romance by night…

Is writing your full time job? If so, what do you do to unwind?

I think I have officially moved over into full time writing work, yes. Unwind for me equals hot baths, a good glass of red wine, chatting with my husband about the ins and outs of the day, and…er…watching ghost hunter shows. They are my shameful secret.

If you have a job outside of the home, how do you balance it all?

I’m not sure I do it very well. Every day is a challenge. I write at home, so sometimes it’s hard to stop…to ‘clock out’, you know? I really need to work harder about doing that and spending more fun time with my husband.

Which of your books is your favorite and why?
I know asking that question is like asking who is your favorite child is ~ if that is the case, please tell us about a particular moment in one that touched your heart? ((Yes, I know I am evil!))

I change my answer to this question, but at the moment, my answer is DARING TIME. I just recently re-watched the Denzel Washington Déjà vu and it reminded me of why I think time travels can be so wildly romantic. I think DARING TIME is probably the best representation of me as a writer and person. I did so much hands-on-research for it. Plus, it’s a combination of erotic romance, a historical, a contemporary, a crime drama and a paranormal. I loved, loved being able to put all those favorite elements into one book.

What has been one lesson that you have learned in your writing career that will always stay with you?

When I first signed with my agent, Laura Bradford, and she sold Wicked Burn to Berkley in about two and a half weeks, she called me and said, “It usually doesn’t happen this easily, so enjoy it while it lasts.” I soon learned that writing is a bizarre road of euphoric highs and terrible lows. You have to cling onto those highs to sustain you through the rough spots. You can’t just move through the ‘high’ looking for the next one, but instead, gather the good news around you like a cloak and hang on tight to the experience. The winds of change and time will try to blow it away, so you’ve got to really grip on to those moments.

What one piece of advice would hand down to someone pursuing a writing career?

I’ve said this several times, so I hope readers don’t get sick of hearing it, but my simple advice is this: WRITE. Sit down at that computer and put in a daily word count. Set a goal, and meet it. Put down your word count in a daily log to keep track. If you have trouble sticking to it, hook up with a writer friend and report to each other for accountability. With all the sideshows that go on in publishing, it’s sometimes easy to forget the most important thing is product. Don’t let doubts arise about your readiness to start a project. Just do it. It will be the best experience/training you can give yourself. No one can convince me that writing a piece of work was a complete waste of time. Value is inherent in the experience of creating a book, novella, etc. , whether it sells or not.

What has been your most memorable moment with your writing career?

Good question. Hmmm. I used to say when I signed with super-agent Laura Bradford, and was still coasting on the high from that, when she called me just 2.5 weeks later and told me Wicked Burn had sold to Berkley Sensation. It was almost too much for me to stand. I think my brain de-circuited.

However, I might have a new most memorable moment. The week of Feburary 1, 2010, I was happily celebrating the debut of RELEASE with my awesome yahoo group, Total Exposure. During the ‘party’ my agent called and unexpectedly told me I’d been invited to do a Berkley anthology with Megan Hart, Lauren Dane and Emma Holly. I was floored. At the end of the conversation, Laura said…now I’m not sure if I should tell you or not, because it might increase your disappointment if we don’t get the offer, but you know that proposal we sent to Silhouette Special Edition? The editor called at the end of last week and was asking a bunch of pre-deal type questions.

My heart stopped. I’ve hoped and prayed to get in with SSE for a while now.

Well, I had to muddle through wondering until Friday, when Laura called to say I got the deal with Silhouette for a series called Harbor Town, U.S.A. So I released a book, got an anthology deal and a series deal all in one week. It’s a toss up between that experience and the signing with Laura and then selling a couple weeks later. The latter will stay with me forever, because it was my first agent/first deal.

If one sentence could sum up your life up to day, what would that sentence be?

She got really, really scared at times…but she always tried anyway.

Okay... nice and easy time is over... Hee hee...
Do you drool over covers as much as we do??

If anything, I might drool more. I do love a beautiful cover and I get so jealous of some of the amazing ones I’ve seen.

Do you blush when you read a really steamy love scene?

Nope. I might have once. I remember when I FIRST got back the edit for an erotic romance, I was mortified for about five minutes. Why? Because it’s done in a super-professional manner, but in the margins, it’ll say things like, “How about using ‘cunt’ here. You’re over-using ‘pussy’”.


But then you get used to it. Explicit language is just language, and it’s got to be edited just like anything.

Do you read your work to your hubby... No, I am not talking about the nice, sweet, parts... I'm talking about the smutty scenes, lol =)? IF you do, what does he say or does he blush?

I don’t. We have an agreement about that.

Tell us a little bit about Beth's fantasy hero??

One thing I’ve learned in life is that men are so different from women. I know I’m stating the obvious, but I really respect that difference. A lot of times I hear that my heroes are so alpha that they’re obnoxious. I know I’m going over the top for the purpose of a romance novel, which is a fantasy, but I really do believe that men occasionally (often?) do things that women just can’t understand.

I love men. I consider myself to be very girly, and I love how different men are from me. It’s the contrast that I think is so sexy. I’d never dream of forcing a man to be like me. I like that he’s different. I respect it, just as I hope a man can respect me as a woman.

I do have a perfect romantic hero in fiction—it’s Sam Shepard’s portrayal of Chuck Yeager in the movie The Right Stuff. That movie itself sort of gets at what I’m saying about alpha males. They are obnoxious and cocky. Some of them are woman-chasers. But they also are the type of men to conquer space, just like the cowboys of old conquered the wild land of the west. They are fearless and stubborn, and they’d do anything for the woman they decide is theirs.

To me, Sam’s portrayal of Yeager is my fantasy hero because he’s gorgeous, wild and untamed, but so is his wife. They have this amazing, sexy, risk-taking relationship. She actually tells him in the movie that if he ever ‘settles’ as far as his flying, she’ll leave him. They are totally, completely devoted to each other. It’s this dynamic, intensely sexy, risk-taking relationship that I remember when I think of ‘perfect’ romance couples.

Okay quick questions...

Dark or Light: Light. I’m very visual.

Half Empty or Half Full: Depends on the day, but usually half full.

Tea or Coffee: I drink both. Coffee a.m., soothing tea p.m.

Milk or Dark Chocolate: MILK

Summer or Winter: Hmmm, my first impulse is to say summer, but I’m actually more my cozy-self in winter.

Cell Phone or Email: email

Hug or Kiss: I’m a kiss-a-holic. I think the kiss is one of the biggest highlights of sex, and often sadly downplayed in erotic romance.

Hot or Sexy Man: Hmmm…???? I’ll say Sexy, because hot implies mere good looks. Sexy can be so much more.

Cook or Clean: Cook

Sunrise or Sunset: Sunrise

Ms. Beth, I want to thank you for coming hang out at my place today. I have really enjoyed following you in blog land. It means a lot to me that you came party with us!

To see the reviews for this book... go here.

His need for her was so absolute, he agreed to share her with another man in order to possess her.

Genny loved her husband Max, but something was missing—a sexual charge that was instead ignited by his business partner, Sean. He was ruggedly handsome, with a heart-stopping smile and a slow, sexy New Orleans drawl that made Genny weak. The more time they spent together, the stronger the attraction between them became and when her husband offered to share her with Sean for one intoxicating night, both Genny and Sean were too tempted to refuse.

That night in the company penthouse, Max and Sean showed Genny the heights of ecstasy. But it was Sean who scored her very spirit, and one-on-one, they were red hot. But as Genny learns, there’s a price to pay for such impulsive pleasure. What began as a night of forbidden desire spirals into a whirlpool of murder, sensual submission, secrets, and a scorching passion that threatens to consume everyone it touches.

  10. Hi Beth! Hi Cecile!

    I just have to say that The Right Stuff is one of my all time favorite movies, alpha favorite is Scott Glenn portrayed by Ed Harris, sexy, loving, protective, and an all out risk taker, all the men portrayed were. Sam Shepherd is a prime example. Thanks for reminding me!

    Beth, is there any that speaks to your muse, makes you have to write, not just want to write?

    Thanks for a great interview! I love learning more about authors!

    Dottie :)

  11. Hi Beth and Cecile! Great interview and I love the pictures. You had me laughing out loud with your editing comments. I never really thought about the specifics of editing erotic books before. Thanks for the laugh!

  12. Kim H, thanks for stopping by. It is appreciated. Isn't her cover hot. I mean, even if there is no man on the cover... this is one hot cover!

    Host! Hey hon, thanks for coming over! I am glad that we could start your day off good!

    Leontine! Hey honey!! I am glad that you got a chance to stop by! Don'tcha just love that quote. I lol when I read that, "Geek by day, creator of shamelessly sexy romance by night"!
    And hon, you are not the only one who has a thing for accents! I love me a southern drawl (thank God I live in the south!!!!)

    Chris, thanks for stopping by and showing some support!

    Elaing8, morning honey!!! Thanks for coming over! Gotta love morning reading huh, lol!!!
    I am glad that you enjoyed the interview!
    I guess I will have to russ Caleb out of bed, hee hee... We had a great weekend!

    Itsjustme1217! Hi there! Welcome. Thanks for coming over! I love your avatar picture! I lust Edward!

    Stacy! Hey honey! Thanks for coming over! It is good to see you1

    Kara!! Hey there hon, have missed you! Hope all is well! Thanks for coming over!

    Sweet, morning hon!! Thanks for coming over! You are sooo right... I sooooo want to know about this contract between her and hubby!!!!
    Maybe if we ask nice enough, she might just drop us some hints as to what its about!
    Oh girl, you know I love me some hot guysssss.... It is such hard work looking for the right ones!!! **evil laughter**

    Dottie!! Hey honey! Thanks for coming over! The Right Stuff, I will have too look that one up. I have not heard of that one. Thanks for giving me the heads up!

    Patti! Hey honey!!! Thanks for coming over! I am glad that you like the pictures. I love the pictures too, lmbo!!

  13. Hi, Leotine (waving) from one geek to another!

    Howdy Chris!

    Elaine--LOL. Yeah, that would have been a bit more of a 'no brainer' choice.

    Thank you for stopping by itsjustme!

    Morning Kara and Stacy! Thanks for the kind words!

    SVZ--Hello! LOL--yeah, some details must be kept under raps to keep the marriage bonds intact.

    Hi Dottie! Many things speak to my muse...certain kinds of music, a newspaper article, observing a couple in the distance, a scene from a movie. Have to write...yeah...a little thing called a deadline. LOL.

    Patti--well, like I said, it is a bit jarring to see it within this really professional context. But it was a good lesson. Like I said, illicit language is as viable a way of communicating as anything. And must be edited. lol.

    Cecile--thank so much for having me at your blog!

  14. **Morning ladies... Stretching**
    Sorry I am a little late this morning... Had a busy weekend...

    Hands Elaing8 her morning drink -

    Good morning My Sweet! You know I am a sucker for a woman batting her eyelashes... And here is your Irish Coffee with a kiss... *MAHW*

    Now, let's start this day off shall we....

    Ms. Beth.... Ladies....

  15. Awww Ms Beth {{{hugs to you}}} Thanks for coming over and playing with us today!

  16. Hey Beth,
    I'm a HUGE Fan of your work! I loved reading Release, Come to Me Freely and Exorcising Sean's Ghost...I'm eager to read more of your releases...majority of them are on my birthday wishlist. :)

    I'm eager to find out what you're going to come out next...Can we expect something similar along the lines of Release?

    Happy Reading
    Anna Shah Hoque

  17. Hi Anna!!
    My answer to your question is 'yes and no.' The next book I have out is called Velvet Cataclysm, a full length novel coming out from Samhain May 18. It's different, because it's a paranormal. However, the intense emotion/romance/sex--those elements are all the same.
    My next Berkley book, called Explosive, could indeed be said to be similar to RELEASE. It's a contemp erotic with suspense elements.
    Thanks for stopping by Anna!

  18. Bonjour Ladies!

    Woot-Woot This was a fun interview. I'm intrigued by the synopsis and most of all by the cover! =)

    Where is Caleb when a girl is thirsty?!;)

  19. Oh Wait, I've seen Caleb has arrived! *g* I'll take anything you want sweet *wriggles eyebrows*...but a Grapes Manzana on Ice will work ;)

  20. S7anna! Hey honey! I am glad that you came over to peek at my place today! Gawd only know how I stalk yours!! LOL!

    Pattepoilue!!! Bonjour honey! I am so glad that you could come over today! I am glad that you liked the interview. It was a blast working with Ms. Kery!

  21. Pattepoilue ~ Ahhhh, where have you been hiding my love...

    ((He is such a ladies man))

    Honey, One Grapes Manzana on Ice coming right up for the beautiful lady...

  22. @Cecile - Sighing in relieve, I'm not the only one with accent weakness :) I'm actually a Beth Kerry virgin - did I just say that? LOL - and she wants me to give it up as a shamelessly sexy romance creator that she is *wink*

  23. Hi Cecile and Beth! I've heard of Ms Kerry's books before but I haven't read them yet, I was wondering if I could get something from her back list? Preferably "Daring Time." or "Subtle Magic." Oh and I was wondering do any of your other Subtle novels come in print or just e-book? Can't wait to read something by you!

    Oh and Leontine, believe me when I say your not the only one who likes accents both my mom and I are very fond of them too, although I'm usually more into Australian and Scottish accents. I haven't heard what New Orleans one sound like yet, I'll have to keep that in mind if I ever go traveling.

  24. Ahhh Caleb you do know what I like :D Thanks for the I need another one :)

    I am also a sucker for an accent,they just make me melt :)

  25. @Gabby - I went to ireland one time to visit my sister and she had to pick me up at Dublin Airport. I sat there for 2 hours with an blissful smile on my face. Just listening to the men talk, most have deeper voices and the brogue OMG, just to have one ask me if I needed anything made me want to sum up a whole list that had nothing to do with the fact I was stranded at Dublin Airport LOL

  26. Your books sound thrilling. I would love to be entered in your draw. Thanks. wandanamgreb(at)gmail(dot)com

  27. Leontine! Girl, you are not the only one!!! Accents make my toes curl and butterflies in my tummy... and other things deliciously wicked go through my mind! Oh and can I add.. I love when they say Darlin!!!!! That does me in!!

    Gabby~ hi there! Thanks for coming over! Glad to see that Leontine and I are not the only one with a thing for accents...

    Elaing8, you know Caleb will get out the best for his favorite girl! You are accent girl too huh!!! Gotta love them!

    OH Leontine... I wanna be stuck in that airport too!!!!

  28. Holy Cow Cecile I am missing all the fun, accents, sexy books up for grabs and Caleb serving us drinks today!
    Okay to start off would love to have an iced mocha frappuccino since it is lunch time for me and would go well with my grilled chicken sandwich.
    Thanks for having Beth stop in today, like Leontine I am also a Beth Kery virgin but am not afraid to change that status with "Daring Time"!
    I too love Deja Vu with Denzel as a good example of why Time Travel could be romantic and have watched this wonderful movie over and over since it was released!
    Party has been fun today Cecile have a good week.

    jackie b central texas


  29. Welcome Ladies!!!!

    Ah, Elaing.. Hon, I know exactly what you like! **Evil wink** I already had this one waiting for you babe!

    Jacabur1, Hey there babe! One Iced Mocha Frappuccino coming up! I aim to please dear! My girl does know how to throw a party!!

  30. *waves* welcome Beth Kerry to hussyville.

  31. Woo Hoo looks who's here! Awesome interview Cecile and wonderful answers Beth.

    I hear you on learning to close down the writing business for the night and spend more time with the hero (Hubby) at night. I have to learn the same thing....when you learn it tell me how! Please! LOL

    Wonderful party C! I'll be back!


  32. Hi Beth, what a great interview. Love your stories, one of my favorites is Wicked Burn. Slowly making my way though all of your titles.


  33. Hi Beth!

    Velvet Cataclysm is already on my wish list for May. Paranormal romance is the perfect read.

    Explosive sounds great too. And for everyone who hasn't read Release yet....get thee to a book store!

    Thanks Beth!

    Dottie :)

  34. Accents make me go crazy too! I am so weak when it comes to accents.

    @Cecile I wouldn't want to miss all the fun! I'm glad I saw the lights on ;)

    @Caleb Ahhh thank you gorgeous ;)

  35. Pattepoilue, you know you are always welcome to my place honey!

  36. This was a fun interview and I loved the questions and answers.

  37. O-M-G, I need air!!! I can't think of a question at the moment, just a huge thank you for being here today!!
    what a great start in the week!
    have a great day,

  38. Great interview.
    Oh, and when asked milk or chocolate, my answer would be chocolate milk.
    Thanks for the interview and the contest.

  39. I always love Beth's interview - she is one cool cookie...

    but in the margins, it’ll say things like, “How about using ‘cunt’ here. You’re over-using ‘pussy’”.

    Love that - I would be a bit read faced as well...

    Love the interview Cecile...


  40. I loved the interview, it was a joy to read :) And here in the comment section the party started good, lol!
    You sure know how to entertain is, Cecile! And you have the most fun writers at your party!

    And I'm a accent hussy too *wink*

  41. Lucky girl! Just listening to Sean Connery's brogue makes me shiver, man what an accent! If I were stuck at Irish airport and she finally came to get me I would've asked if could've stayed a little longer just to listen to the guys talk! Lol!

  42. @all the accent hussies here - I think if I'm in the US and someone would call me darlin' my eyes would get a bit cloudy, just so your all warned, do not interrupt me, it means I'm having a accent-gasm. Assuming you're all there with me of course LOL Oh and when i'm in the US I want to go to a place where they say; Howdy ma'am *shivers* Oh yes, preferable a guy with black hair, muscular body, likable abs, naughty eyes, wicked grin, tight tee and jeans that hugs his ass to perfection. Okay, was that too much detail?? Ah you ladies can handle it *wink*

  43. Lol Leontine, accent-gasm! I like that word :)
    I have a hard time staying cool with the Aussie accent ;)

  44. Finally here!
    Wouldn't miss a party :D

    Read 2 books by Kery now, and she sure brings the heat. I really can't say anything else.

    Agree with sexy over hot, cos hot is hot, but sexy can be so much more

    blodeuedd1 at gmail dot com

  45. Ever here of a show called Doc? sexy cowboy in tight jeans from Montanna, moves to New York to be a doctor. Very cute and polite and a girl could get use to hearing him say ma'am. (shudders)

  46. I've never read Beth Bery! Damn it!!

    Nice interview :)

  47. Hi Beth & Cecile,

  59. Hi Ms. Kery,
    I love your books and I am so excited about this contest :)

    I have a quick question for you - do your characters stay with you after you have finished writing their stories? Which couple have stayed with you the most?

    Do you get any inspiration for your love scenes from your husband? Do you ever get embarrassed when your relatives read your love scenes? They are so steamy, I love your stories!

    Thank you :)

    Best to you both.


  61. Hey Cecile and Beth! Great interview! I loved the intense emotions in Wicked Burn and I can't wait to start Daring Time!

  62. Those were some awesome interview questions, Cecile! I could definitely take some pointers from you.

    Beth, thank you so much for anwering all of Cecile's questions with so much depth and detail. If I didn't already enjoy your writing, I'd be adding your books to my wish list.


  63. I've only ever heard it on tv, I don't think I'd be able to stand it if I was actually in front of a guy who talked like that.

  64. Cecile which Indiana Jones? I haven't seen the Crystal Skulls one yet and the only one I really liked was temple of doom. I really liked him in The Avengers with Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman, and he was good in League of extraordinary Gentlemen too.

  65. This was the most interesting article and the book sounds good. I was impressed with the questions asked and the answers given. It was very informative. I would like to be considered in the drawing as well. susan L.

  66. Oh...I love this interview.
    Beth's book sounds awesome.

    Great job! I'm enjoy your party hon!

    Big hug

    Gabby ~ OH.... I think I would actually have my mouth open wide and would be speechless if I actually did come across a guy like that - with an accent like that!! Oh and Sean... I think it must be the last one of the Indiana Jones movies. He is older in it... still hot though! AND OMG... yes, -->> League of extraordinary Gentlemen!!!

  68. Great interview! I love hearing about other authors lives. The book sounds intriguing.

    Hiya, Cecile!! I always read your blog, I don't always have time to leave a comment. You are so much fun to be around! Your blog rocks!

  69. Hi Cecile,

    How are you, hope you are well! Great interview, I love Beth Kerry's books, so far Wicked Burn is my favorite!

    Dang that first picture is hot, had trouble concentrating on the interview!

  70. Thanks for a great interview!
    I love Beth Kery's books, and I've been waiting for the release of Release!

  71. Oh I totally agree with you Cecile! Sean's definitely still a hottie, he's one of those few guys that ages very gracefully. Like Patrick Swayze and Michael Jackson, fortunately Sean Connery's still alive!

  72. Ashlynn Pearce!!!! Thanks for coming by and letting me know, lmbo!!! I am glad that you did! You know I love ya right!!! And can not wait till we can do something with your book!!!! Oh gosh, we can say that now!!!! I feel like we are teenagers again... going see our favorite band in concert!!!!!! This is real!!! YAYAY!!!

    Hon, if you stop by that is all I can ask for!!! It means the world to me that you come by my place. I know how busy people can be and how fast our times flies - so from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate you coming here!!!!! No matter if you make a comment or not!! You make me smile! THanks!

    Marissa!!! Hey there honey!!! I have missed you! How have you been! Thanks for coming over! I am doing well! Lovin up my pics huh, evil wink!!!

    Eva S! Thanks for coming by! I hope you have enjoyed yourself!

    Gabby, oh gosh.... You are sooooooo right. A sister friend of mine (Houston A W Knight) did a post the other day on just that. How men age. Check it out!!! And she has pictures too.. of Pat, Val, OH So Sexy Sean....I mean that man.. just warms my skin!! I am glad to see another Sean fan out there!! Hope all is going well hon!

  73. Wonderful interview!

    LOL, that's hilarious about the editing of an erotic romance! Oooh, I so agree about steamy kiss scenes being downplayed in erotic romances. Erotic romances should include more hot kisses, the sexing is more explosive with a great build up to it. :D

    Just wanted to let you know, Cecile, I have an award for you on my blog~

  74. Hi there! I haven't had the pleasure of reading one of Beth Kery's books. Which of your books should a new reader of yours start with?

    Stephanie G

  75. Fi! Thanks for stopping by. I was happy but surprised to know Release knocked off Daring Time from your fave list. I didn't see that coming. lol.

    Pattepoilue: Now that sounds like an interesting drink!

    Cathy--howdy! I haven't seen you in such a long time! How are you?

    Houston--my husband is wonderful to spend time with, it's the 'shutting down' the shop that's hard. I will certainly let you know when I get the key to things! lol.

    Dottie, thanks, and I hope you enjoy Velvet Cataclysm. I loved writing it.

    Thanks, Ina!

    Scorpio--I have been lucky. I feel that daily, and I'm so thankful.

    Erotic Horizon-haha, well, it is a bit of a shocker seeing that in the margin in official editing.

    JennJ--Yay for ghost hunting! I don't know why I think they are so fun to watch...haha.

    Paranormal Heaven--given your handle, I'd suggest Daring Time? The only thing I know for sure is that when people start with Wicked Burn, then go to Daring Time, they are often sort of...dude, what's with the paranormal light? I want another contemp! When people start with DT and go to a contemp, I get a similar reaction though. lol. Thanks for stopping by!

    Anna--sigh, so true about the kisses, eh? More kisses all around!

    Thanks Eva and Marissa!

  76. Anna ♥!! Thank you for coming and the award!!!!! You are too kind my friend! {{Hugs to you}}

    Paranormal Haven!! Hey honey!! I am so glad that you could make it! Welcome and enjoy!!

  77. Beth and Cecile...this has been an awesome party, interview and a wonderful insight to Beth! She is an author I will HAVE to buy and enjoy!

    Cecile, thanks for the sharing and intro' of Beth - I will buy her books, and

    Beth...I'm so grateful Cecile told me about you...and after reading your answers...I have to become a fan!

    Big cyber hugs!

  78. Beth,

    Do you think book trailers help in book sales?

  83. It seems a lot of authors have to balance work life with writing. Well done for managing both.

  84. I'm brand new to reading romance but I've read Wicked Burn and Loved it! Even though the characters had to much keeping them apart. I'd love to read more from you.

  85. I enjoyed the interview. Beth, when you mentioned The Right Stuff I couldn't believe I had forgotten about it until then. Sam ' role as Chuck Yeager was awesome. Complete Alpha male if you ask me.I'm going to have to re watch the movie now. lol
