Welcome! I’ve wondered for years what my website would look like. So happy to be in the position to know! The background is a detail from a photo I took on a youth mission trip to Alaska several years ago. The color scheme comes from a box of Bigelow’s decaffeinated green tea. You just never know when or where inspiration will strike, do you?
Take my hero, Joe. He literally bonked the back of my head one summer day as I was returning to my desk at work. I tripped. Tripped over nothing. Nothing! But suddenly this big bad wolf was in my brainbox and wouldn’t shake loose. I sat down at my computer and spewed out a rough first chapter. What fun! I’d never been highjacked by a story idea before. Since then Joe and I have had a lot of fun figuring out why he’s returned to King City, just who this elf named Della is and why she smells like heaven but gives him such hell. And to what lengths he’ll go to keep her safe and win the day.
Maybe I should say I’ve had a lot of fun figuring that out. Joe…well…he’s encountered a bit of trouble along the way. Bar fights, dead bodies, conspiracies. An unexpected reunion with his brother the Alpha of the King City wolf pack. Not to mention the fact that Della has no idea that she’s his mate and he’s hers. What a mess! But Joe’s ready to take it on if it means finding his happily ever after with the petite, prickly and honorable Della.
Have you ever been shanghaied by a story idea that wouldn’t let go? What’d you do about it?
