I am loving writing this new book! It’s called “Deadly Gamble”, and it’s the first of the new romantic suspense series I’m doing for HQN. I can barely keep up with the heroine–Mojo Sheepshanks is a real pistol, to say the least. And her man, Tucker Darroch, ain’t bad, either.
I invariably fall in love with my heroes, but I’m fickle. Gotta admit it. I’m still madly in love with Sam O’Ballivan, of “The Man from Stone Creek” fame, and I can’t wait to share that book with you.
It’s Friday, and I’m looking forward to the weekend. I’d like to see that new Jodie Foster movie, the one where she can’t find her daughter on the airplane. Talk about having something at stake! As the mother of a daughter, I can identify, and I really want to see how they get out of this one. I also want to kick back and munch popcorn in the dark, and concentrate on someone else’s story for a few hours.
Stories are marvelous, aren’t they? Healing places, where we can hide out for a little while, and recover from all that Real Life, coming at us from every direction. I’ve been enjoying Harlequin’s new series, “Next”, very much. I also like Superromances. In times of challenge, the kind we as a nation face today, this may seem like light reading, but I think it’s more important than ever to think about happy endings. To fix our sights on what can be, if we all pull together.
If I’m rambling a little today, please forgive me. It’s Friday!
See you on Monday morning. Have a wonderful weekend.
And remember. COURAGE.
