Wow! Goodreads just asked me for my city of birth and date of death... What if I could answer that? Would I live life differently if I knew for sure how much longer I had left?

Interesting thought.

That's generally how my writer brain works. I've been dreaming up stories since I was in elementary school. My first book was titled "The Wonders of Unicorn Creek" and my publisher was Dehesa elementary school.

Pirate's Pleasure by Lisa Kessler
“He kissed her hair. “My heart is yours.”

His pulse thumped in her ear, strong and steady just like John. She pressed a tender kiss to his chest. “Best treasure I’ve ever stolen.”

“He took the spatula and smiled, and she headed for the bedroom, only stopping once to see if he was watching her ass wiggle under his shirt.

He chuckled. “I’d have to be dead not to look.”

“I’m glad to see you’re in good health.” She grinned.”
Lisa Kessler, Lure of Obsession

“He raised a brow at another abrupt change in the conversation. “Are you disappointed I couldn’t dodge a couple bullets?”

A real smile teased her lips as she lowered her coffee mug. “On the contrary, I’m a sucker for a guy with scars, so for your protection, we should probably stick to the case.”
Lisa Kessler, Lure of Obsession

“He seems like a good guy, but we need to focus on finding Nia’s killer, and then finish the theater. We don’t have time for distractions. No men.”

“Yeah, yeah, I know.” Mel rolled her eyes.

“Inspiration before intercourse.”

Callie chuckled. “I should put that on a T-shirt.”
Lisa Kessler, Lure of Obsession

Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa

Roald Dahl
