Love this Hero
I don't know why, but I love heroes that are flawed. They're not a perfect male who does everything right all the time, has everything together, and is super-successful no matter what. Winston Harper is successful outwardly, but what drives his all-consuming ambition is pain. It makes me wonder about sports people. What drives them? I'm sure for many of them it's just the passion for the game and for what they love doing. But are some of them driven by something much deeper than that?
In my first published novel, Wedding Gown Girl, Kienna helps Elaine dress beautifully for a wedding in one of her bridesmaids dresses. Even though Elaine has her sights on the same man that Kienna does, they become fast friends. My novel is Elaine's story. (And it even features Kienna.) It's the second book in the Wedding Girls Series. Elaine bakes wedding cakes.
I received a contract with Astraea Press for Three Tiers for Win today and can't wait for this book to come out. It truly was one of the funnest books to write.
