Angela’s ex-husband has “seen the errors of his ways” and wants her back. She wants nothing to do with the philandering, verbally abusive man. While her sister and brother-in-law are visiting, he tries to ramp up his pursuit of her but is thwarted by the “male” answering her phone. Seeking a way to protect her when they leave, her brother-in-law suggests that his best friend Luke temporarily move into her guest-room.

Will having a man around at all hours help discourage the persistent ex? Will Luke be able to convince Angela that age is just a number?

How do you conceive your plot ideas?  Most of my ideas come from places I’ve visited.  Something about exciting locales like Washington, D.C., or Gettysburg, PA, will incite me to conjure characters and situations around them.


Have you written a book you love that you have not been able to get published?  I wrote a novel for middle-grade boys several years ago that I sent out to several agents and after getting feedback, decided to shelve.  I may go back and self-publish it.


How long did it take you to publish your first book, after you started trying?  I spent about two years learning the ropes of the romance genre in the late 1990s, but I didn’t get farther than writing 50 pages of three different books before I was offered a fabulous full-time job.  I abandoned my fiction writing for eight years while I was working full time as communications director for the city of Orlando, and then when I retired, I started writing, again.  This time, it just took one year to finish a polished manuscript and find a publisher.
