 Finding love when you least expect it



How does a girl who grew up in the Mid-Atlantic with no such thing as ice hockey end up a major the point of writing a sports romance?

Writing inspiration, like love, tends to show up in the most unexpected of places.


I was in the middle of revising a paramedic romance when I realized the practice facility of the Washington Capitals was right across the street from my day job. Honestly, how's a sports fan (not to mention romance writer) going to say no to watching the guys practice at lunctime?

As I sat on those cold metal bleachers, my laptop balanced on my knees, characters and plot started coming to me. And I went with it.


When I'm not hanging out in the bleachers or writing, my favorite activities are: reading, canning (look for my tweets about can-a-palooza with fellow author Taylor Reynolds), urban gardening, and herding my two enormous dogs.
