Hi Calvin! I raced right on over when I saw you were Sarah's guest today! I LOVE that song by Willie Nelson. And saying it reminds you of sweet and I totally agree! LOL By the way, I recently purchased The Phantom Lady of Paris and I'm dying to read it. Can't WAIT! Thanks for the peek inside what makes this great author tick! Hugs!

Mackenzie Crowne said...

Hiya Calvin. I'm with AJ. Awwww. Either Vonnie's a very lucky girl, or you are a smooth tongued devil. ;-)

AJ Nuest said...

Pretty sure he's both, Mac. ;-)

Calvin Davis said...

AJ, a woman of great intelligence and taste. How else would I describe a woman who bought my book? My angel mentions you often.

Calvin Davis said...

I laughed out loud when I read your comment, Mackenzie--a lovely name, by the way. I would say I'm more the "silver-tongued devil" type. I know my way around my wife. Every morning when she brings my cup of coffee into the bedroom, I kiss her hand and whisper a few things in French. She's a sucker for the continental touch. :D

AJ Nuest said...

Mac has that effect on people, Calvin. She keeps me laughing. And ah, yeah, I'd be bringing you coffee every morning too. LOL

Lilly Gayle said...

And you're such a romantic! Nice interview, Calvin.

Amy said...

Hey, Calvin. Yes, you are definitely a cinnamon jellybean! :)

Calvin Davis said...

Thank you, Lilly. What a sunshine smile you've got. I hope your husband compliments you on it.

Amie, Vonnie asked me the questions and wrote down my answers. When I replied "cinnamon" to the favorite jellybean question, my angel mumbled something about stud muffin being my flavor. Sometimes she has a dash of devil in her, but then I've always been attracted to a bit of devilment. Haven't you?
