I am really excited about my contemporary sports romance series: Worth the Fight. The first book, KNOCK OUT, is a story about what happens after the Fall, the time in life when you’ve found yourself knocked out, out of breath, and just struggling to get back up.
It takes courage to find your feet, brush off the dirt, and move on with life, right? We’ve all experienced our fair share of falls, too.
Which is why this book means so much to me. You see, I had a major fall, a literal one, smack off a curb and with an Italian ice in my hand. I broke my right ankle and tore the ligaments in my foot . . . the right one. The driving foot. The Italian ice remained intact.
That summer was tough, being laid up on the couch when all I wanted was the sun on my face and the sand between my toes.
Plenty of time to think…which is exactly what happened.
Amidst all my agony and struggle, I had an idea. What if I wrote a story about a heroine who also has a fall and breaks her ankle, but its a career ending injury? What would she do? How would she cope with the way her life has belly-flopped. Her goals shattered along with her ankle? That’s how Logan Rettino, my ballerina turned MMA Octagon Girl, was born.
I hope you enjoy Logan and Keane’s story, and how sometimes a Fall can be a catalyst for something far better . . . like love. Or a book written from the heart. Or that same book finding a wonderful publisher, and readers like YOU!
