It's a contemporary romance [natch!] about two people who both suffered public humiliations at the hands of former lovers, learning to trust enough to love again.

Following that work, I hope to publish the novel that resulted from my NaNoWriMo efforts last year - still a romance, but a bit of a departure for me, as it is also a bit of a suspense, and it's my first time writing in first person!(less)

“Speaking of which, about assuming you had a condom—I just meant that you, with your experience, would be prepared for responsible sex, even if it were on the fly. An intelligent man is prepared for spontaneity.”
Roberta Pearce, A Bird Without Wings

“A bride should look chaste—not caught.”
Roberta Pearce, For Those Who Wait

“I don’t like being kidnapped. Or manipulated.”

“I’ve done neither, silly. Though I’d like to hear about your other kidnap incidents. The aspects that put you off the experience.”
Roberta Pearce, The Value of Vulnerability

Topics Mentioning This Author

“You can't blame a writer for what the characters say.”
Truman Capote

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Stories

“The natural tenderness and delicacy of our constitution, added to the many dangers we are subject to from your sex, renders it almost impossible for a single lady to travel without injury to her character. And those who have a protector in a husband have, generally speaking, obstacles to prevent their roving.”
Abigail Adams
