Hi Patricia,

I'm glad you enjoyed the book. Romantically Challenged actually started out as a short story for a writing workshop. It's the chapter where Julie goes on the plane ride in the Cessna. That one was actually a true story (fictionalized now, of course, but I did go on a date with a guy who took me flying in a small plane and we couldn't land at the airport we took off from because of fog). That story was a big hit with the class and I realized that everyone loves to hear other people's bad date stories--and the book was born!(less)

BOY TOY: A Romantically Challenged Novel joins the world of published books today. Maybe not quite as overwhelming as birthing a child, but awesome nonetheless.

BOY TOY is a modern love story for every grown-up who's ever fallen for a Peter Pan.

Sabrina Mayerson is turning 40, and all she wants for her birthday is one night of hot, sweaty, twenty-something sex. Twenty-eight-year old Andrew Whela... Read more of this blog post »
