Hey, if you like humor, you don't even have to like Vikings to appreciate this absolutely hilarious cartoon. Check out his horned helmet.

But if you really love Vikings, there is this great website where I for one made a list of a bunch of books I've missed.

This is a hilarious article about a bunch of guys in California who dress up as Vikings and....well, you have to read it to believe it. Read all the way to the end.! Honestly, I’ve said it before, numerous times, you’ve gotta love a guy/guys with a sense of humor.

Having my very own comic strip is such an honor, and no matter that they are poking fun at my Viking SEALs, they title the strip, “I love Sandra Hill.


I am touched and amazed by the incredible video about my Vikings prepared by fan, Donna Lindgren:

You have to check this out, too.  Do I have the most amazing fans, or what?
And this is another neat fan website:
And if you like my Cajun novels, you might be interested in this Wall Street Journal article on the Cajun way of life:

The Very Virile VikingWould you believe that I got an email from Magnus Eriksson in Denmark?  I'm not kidding.  Who would have thought when I named my hero in THE VERY VIRILE VIKING that he would have a namesake in modern times?

Then there's the woman who admittedly hits the dating sites and her headline is "Where is my thunderbolt?"  You have to have read my Cajun books to get the humor.

I also smile a bit when some readers tell me that their husbands or significant others now call them "sweetling" or "heartling."  I melt just thinking about having established such a trend with my Norse endearments. I fully expect after fans have read KISS OF PRIDE that they will use the word ‘Wowzer!’ in a new, hilarious way.


The Last VikingSandra Hill and Kevin SorboOkay, you're not going to believe this, but when I wrote the book, THE LAST VIKING, I pictured Kevin Sorbo (in his TV role of Hercules) as the hero.  In fact, when Meredith first sees Rolf, she says, "Oh, my God!  It's Kevin Sorbo."

So, I was at the recent DragonCon conference in Atlanta where, yep, Kevin Sorbo was signing memorabilia, and ta da!  Here I am with Kevin Sorbo.  I must say, the boy does age well.  This is what he said when he signed the book, "No, that's not me on the cover, but it should be." <g>

Sandra Hill and Chris Roberts Also while at DragonCon, which incidentally can only be described as the world's largest Halloween party, 50,000 people strong, I finally met up with Chris Roberts, a well-known supporter of the romance genre.  And what a sweetie she!  Her daughter, too.

Four of us authors, calling ourselves Bump in the Night Central had our own booth at DragonCon.  Here I am with Lori Handeland, Susan Sizemore and Sue Kearney.

Sandra Hill and Navy SEALAnother case of "It's a small world."  There I am at our DragonCon booth telling passersby that I write (among other things) about time-traveling Viking Navy SEALS, and this guy stops, looks at me, and says, "Whaaat?"  Yep, a former Navy SEAL,  Unfortunately, not a Viking one, but, hey, not so bad.

Here's a typical fan from Dragoncon.


And did I mention running into John D'Salvo at the Romantic Times Convention this year?  John has been the cover model on a dozen of my books.  I must say, he is even better looking in person.

That's me with Rosemary of Rosemary's Book Store in Australia.  Rosemary is an incredible supporter of the romance industry.

If you'd like to know why I write the books I do, and how, check out the Hachette Publishing Company's website at:


So, there's this young man who writes me a letter.  He tells me that, as an entering freshman at the exclusive Pomona College in California, they were required to write an essay on the book MENDEL'S DWARF.  A literary novel, this book detailed the sexual frustration, in very graphic detail, of a midget scientist who idolized the scientist Gregor Mendel and was in love with a librarian.

It was an odd choice, this young man from the conservative northeast thought, but then he had this image of Californians as being free-spirited, progressive, sun-bathed hippies (his words).  The faculty must be part of those wild Californians.

Truly, Madly VikingLo and behold, several weeks later, he and the other incoming freshmen got another letter.  This one stated that due to overcrowded classes, students could be exempt from the writing requirements if they provided a second essay, this one comparing MENDEL'S DWARF with, you guessed it, TRULY, MADLY VIKING.

Again, this young man (embarrassed to find himself in the romance section of a bookstore) thought it another example of those odd Californians.  In some ways, he found lots to compare.

But, oops, another letter followed.  Turns out some pranksters got hold of the freshman mailing list and the comparison to TRULY, MADLY VIKING was a joke.  But meanwhile lots of students had already written the comparative essays.

The young man wanted me to know that somewhere, on dozens and dozens of book shelves, are dog-eared copies of TRULY, MADLY VIKING and that literary essays have been written about it.  Even more amusing, when that class graduated, their class shirts read:  "Truly, Madly Graduated."

Most pleasing to me was the fact that this young man, who never would have read a romance novel otherwise, said he really enjoyed the book.

Don't you just love this story?
