A. J. Lape is the Amazon bestselling author of the Darcy Walker Series which has stayed on Amazon's bestseller's list since its debut in 2012. She lives in Cincinnati with her husband, two daughters, an ADD dog, a spoiled hamster, and an unapologetic and unrepentant addiction to Coca-Cola--plus a lifelong love affair with bacon she has no plans to sever. She's a jock and PI wannabe and recently joined the Citizen's Police Academy in her hometown but daily stops crime through the fictional ADHD character of Darcy Walker. If the FBI ever checks her computer, she'll be wearing prison-orange due to the disgusting "wiki" articles she looks up...all in the name of career research, of course.

So nice to hear from you and a very good question. Darcy gets the "mechanics of it." Remember, she has romance novels she hides under her mattress *wink, wink*. However, Murphy has never given her the "birds and the bees" talk, where it is totally broken down, this is what it looks like, this is what you feel like, etcetera. Up until Dylan, everything in the opposite sex department has been very clinical. Like a lot of girls, she's not going to fully understand it until she actually participates in it. She's a natural tomboy. She never really thought anyone was cute until Liam Woods in Grade A Stupid and that went nowhere. Then she was really taken aback when she started to develop feelings for Dylan who was her best friend. The lines between them have always been blurred. And now? Now, they are REALLY BLURRED. And yeah, Google...lol...but Murphy has filters on their home computer and as far as her googling in her spare time? She's too busy googling crap that would put her on the FBI's Most Wanted List.(less)
A.J. Lape I'm currently halfway through DEFCON Darcy, book four in the Darcy Walker Series.

Ride or Die Playlist

Ride or Die has been one of my favorite books to write. Besides the subject matter and new phase in Darcy’s life, some of that might’ve been because I liked the tunes on the playlist that range from Queen to Lil Nas to the Talking Heads.

“THERE WAS ALWAYS a boy in your life that common sense and the prayers of parents told you to stay away from: fast talker, fast car, and fast hands. He was the boy your father kept a loaded shotgun by the door for and met on the front porch if he ever thought about venturing onto his property…let alone the threshold. He was the tall, dark, mysteriously handsome, and uncharacter-istically quiet one that made you wonder what was going on in his head, and that little voice in your head said it wasn’t always so honorable. He was the boy you broke all of the rules over because bad-boys equaled excitement and the rebel in you liked the ride.”
A.J. Lape, Grade A Stupid

“But instead of shouting this evolution from the rooftops or declaring my undying like (or love), I blurted out, “I want to date around first. Like a science experiment or something.”
A.J. Lape, 100 Proof Stud
