Kings of everything

A young woman went to Key Arena on March 28 to see the Okie-tied rockers, probably jammed out to “Sex on Fire” and “Use Somebody” and then walked away with measles.

‘Time’ bandit

Avid readers keeping up with the current paranormal-fantasy scene will recognize Sherrilyn Kenyon’s name. With 60 published books across multiple series — and more than 50 of those titles landing on the New York Times best-seller list — the popularity of her work is undeniable.
