About this author

I live with my dog, Suttree, in Monterey, California, where I am a college professor. I am an ardent reader of the author who designed the flawless blueprint for the romance novel—Jane Austen, and an avid sports fan.

I think the competitive spirit between two athletes is a perfect frame for a contemporary romance. Think about the steamy tension that would arise if an athlete was hot for his or her opponent.

This occurred to me after watching a handsome hunky professional tennis player call for the trainer and receive a massage on the court during a match. I was at the gym at the time and it was a good thing because running on the treadmill gave me some excuse for my blushing face (other than the obvious one, of course). Those trainer's hands

Jimmy Connors said it best, “…you’re either a clay court specialist, a grass court specialist, a hard court specialist…or you’re Roger Federer.”hpDZ05UhT10ZOhzlJpptUDYGsGoztD9QdCq_eZ0qjeLB9mPXa7c4Ap7zoGYADkNDngi9=s120


When it comes to the complete game, no one can touch Roger. He possesses all those things that make for a great tennis player: athleticism, balance, hand-eye coordination, footwork, serve, return of serve, forehand, backhand (and the list goes on…)images-21imagesimages-27

It's a Love Game: Excerpt (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 26, 2012 01:02PM
Description: Lizzie Bennington is on the brink of winning her first title in a mixed doubles match at the Boca Raton tournament when Jack Archer, Lizzie's competitor across the net, stops play complaining of leg cramps. As she watches the trainer's hands move up Jack's muscular loin, Lizzie tries to keep her composure, but she cannot hide her admiration. When Jack catches an unwitting look of prurient pleasure in Lizzie's eye, the real game between the plucky, spirited beauty and the reckless, thrill-seeking playboy begins. Only time will tell if two players on opposite sides of the net can find love.

“Well, with that filly in my line of vision blushing like a virgin, something in me was bound to stand at attention. And my walking legs were occupied.”
A.G. Starling, It's a Love Game

“[Lizzie Bennington to a reporter who has asked for her opinion about Jack Archer's celebrated thighs.] “When you come back from a set down and bring the match to a final set tiebreak and are a point away from winning the match, only to have what looks like an extremely fit player call a time out because of a cramp and then watch that player sit back and casually converse and laugh while you do your best to keep your mental focus and your body moving so you don’t grow cold and cramp yourself, I hardly think you’d concern yourself with his burgeoning manhood, let alone his thighs!”
