Welcome to The Author Visits!

I’m your host, Veena Kashyap.

I read, write and blog books. I am a hardcore paranormal romance and urban fantasy book junkie but I do enjoy young adult, fantasy and some science-fiction.

My mission is pretty simple, support my reading addiction one book at a time!

We’re changing things up a bit. I am working on a new look for the site. I’ll be narrowing my focus, my energy spent mostly on posting 4-6 book reviews a month and blogging about whatever strikes my book fancy.

The Author Visits is now accepting book review requests from traditionally published authors, publishers, agents and publicists. The Author Visits will continue to support self-published and Indie authors but our criteria for selecting self-published works will be more specific.

We will also be narrowing our list of accepted genres. The Author Visits will continue to support romance authors but will take a break from erotica and will no longer accept non-fiction. For an updated list of accepted genres, please visit our Review Policy.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your visit.

I am an avid reader first and foremost. A reviewer for The Author Visits, I love all things book related, and have a very large personal collection going back fifty years. I am also the mother of two wonderful daughters in their twenties.

I have a B.S. in Business from the University of Minnesota, and a J.D. from the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii. I’ve worked as a paralegal, a stay-at-home mom, and been involved in many school activities for her children.

I was an art mom, a science mom, a library aide, a PTA/PTSA Vice President of my daughters’ elementary schools in Idaho and Hawaii, and served on the executive board of the Hawaii State PTSA. I have volunteered and worked in libraries from elementary school through college.

I’ve lived in Minnesota, San Antonio, Kansas, Honolulu and Idaho. I loves movies, Ugly Dolls, retro things, and am active in a variety of social media. I can be found on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads under my name or my screen name, thehouseai. I welcome any and all comments, discussions, etc. I can be found in Boise, ID, drinking tea with my tuxedo cat Willow.
