Apparently, my name is the same as the author of science fictiony Harlequin romances featuring space soldiers and intergalactic love affairs.  Cool!

Ah - is this the writer who will have a love scene interrupt a BATTLE?  Because the characters just can't stand it any longer - they have to touch (even a kiss takes too long when you're a target for weapons - but that would be MY gut instincts - I've never been shot at)........anyone who has been shot at can tell us how realistic it might be.............

Please tell me there aren't that many writers folding romance novels into science fiction AND interrupting the really dramatic parts for a romantic interlude?  Please..............

I have no idea--I've never read the books but looked at the synopses when they came up after typing in my name.  It is quite possible they are the same books though.  The books did get high ratings so I assuming they are good for the genre.

First try brings up a boatload of music. My first name is not common, but everyone and their brother seems to have used it for a group or album name. Weird.

Second try (with just books) brings up, among other things, the story of an Italian bishop who is now a saint. Apparently my rather feminine name was a boy's name at the time??

First and last gets me an author of the same name. But for some reason, I got Zorro movies as well. Really weird!!
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

No hits on my full name. With just my first name, the first hit is a stainless steel soy milk maker. "First one in U.S.A.," it says.

While my first name isn't all that common, it is the name of a very famous story --  32 pgs. 19,015 hits.

My first and last name really baffles me . . . I get a bunch of hits for Green Bay Packers memorabilia. ???

First name: self help book and VHS I've never heard of.

Last name: business books, again random VHS, a style of shoes and a whole bunch of stuff made by a company started by my ancestors way back when, that my branch doesn't have any part of any more.

A book called "Satan Exposed".

I'll be back after I finish smacking my husband for yelling out "See, everyone already knows!" when that result came up.

Last name - super common, too many predictable results.

First name - pretty uncommon, top 3 results:

  • Self-help book on parenting a disabled child
  • A French-language textbook
  • A sci-fi novel - from what I can tell an apocalyptic story set in space

LOL, Mom will be mortified to learn this turned into a forum game, but I'm delighted! :)

I share my first name with a famous singer and a small electronics company, so I get a lot of CDs and a few electronics.  My last name is the name of a sci-fi writer, so I get those eventually.

Ha!

Just using my first name, I got a soft-porn book!  Next one was a ghost story.

Using my full name, I got books on a famous artist.
Look out... 
It's one of the Aussie Contingent!

My first name, way too common.  First and last, I share with a woman in England who is an expert on children with a certain medical condition (don't want to get too specific).  She is quite well known, has written books, and has a facility named after her as well.  She's done tons of research and is well regarded in her field.

There is also a woman with my exact name who owns a B&B on PEI.  There's a good chance I'm related to her as I have a distant branch of my dad's family who lives up there.  I always thought it would be kind of funny to go up and stay there - I can only imagine what she might say when I tell her MY name when making the reservation!

And then there are several others, but who spell their name one letter off from mine.  Which is the more common spelling of my last name; I see it way more than I do the way I spell it.
