Ten Things You Don’t Know About Me
A guest post by
Well, let’s be honest here – there are lots more than only ten, right? After all, I’m just starting to get acquainted with many of the readers out there. But, for the sake of this post I’ll divulge some mild “secrets” of the personal kind. How many of these pertain to you, too?
- I’m claustrophobic. Do not, repeat, do not like elevators or MRIs.
- Obsessive much? Guilty as charged. I am a first class late-night ruminator.
- I firmly believe that without dogs in the world, people would be less human.
- I’ve never met a honey-barbeque chip I didn’t dig.
- Stars are for wishing on and I still do.
- Give me a beach chair, a blue sky and a book, and I’m good-to-go for hours.
- I once came in second place in a Best Jeans-Butt Contest. (Was that TMI?)
- I have seen every episode of Friends at least twice, conservatively.
- My prized collection of Nancy Drew mysteries was destroyed in a flood.
- The characters I meet in my stories truly become part of my family. Even the not-so-nice ones.
So, if by now you still choose to get a closer look inside my head, (and I hope you will) check out my newest book and be sure to let me know what you think. Have a great day!
The Making of Nebraska Brown
The last thing eighteen-year-old Ann Leigh remembers is running from her boyfriend in a thick Nebraska cornfield. This morning she’s staring down a cool Italian sunrise, an entire continent from the life she once knew. The events of the eighteen months in between have inexplicably gone missing from her memory.
All at once she’s living with Tommy, an attractive, young foreigner asking for her continued love. Though he’s vaguely familiar, she recalls a boy named Shane in America who she reluctantly agreed to marry. Juggling a new world while her old one is still M.I.A is difficult enough without the terrifying movie scenes spinning a dizzy loop in her mind: glimpses of a devastating house fire, a romance gone wrong, an unplanned pregnancy, and a fractured family – each claiming to be part of who she once was – a girl and a past somehow discarded.
Ann Leigh must collect the pieces of herself to become whole again, but she doesn’t know who to trust especially when Tommy’s lies become too obvious to ignore. And above all, her heart aches to discover what became of the child she may or may not have given birth to.
The Making of Nebraska Brown tells the story of one girl’s coming apart from the inside and the great lengths she’ll go to reclaim herself and find her way home
