At this point I will lose all my male audience...sorry guys!
They say when you write to write about things you know. My first book revolves a lot around an ornamental tree and shrub nursery because that is what I do in "real life." I had a story in me for many years that wanted to be told. I just didn't have all of the pieces until I tied my profession into it. After my first book I wrote a very short story for competition that was a contemporary romance. Then I started my second real novel. It is another contemporary romance that involves, you guessed it, a hockey player. This fictional hockey player's name is Logan Pearce, and Logan's fictional body looks a little like this-------;-)------------>
Logan is fighting both Post Concussion Syndrome and his feelings for a young woman whose life, and arms, he stumbled into.
Yes, it can be kind of hard to get any work done if I have this image posted on my laptop when I write. It's tough, but I must press on! I am taking a class on writing a novel in thirty days. It is this novel that I hope to get done in that time, or close to it.
So, I'm glad I could share with you one of the things that keeps me busy, er, who's been keeping me busy. I'll let you know when Logan is free to play whatever sport entices you! Ah, the great escape is wonderful, isn't it?
Are you into any sports? What type of books do you like to read? Come on, spill!
