“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.” Sylvia Plath
Author Michele Mannon believes life would be incredibly dull without an endless assortment of books and a good sports match on television—preferably with shirtless men (which is, by the way, her inspiration for writing a debut series featuring hot and oh-so muscular MMA fighters).
A self-professed wanderlust, Michele resides in central New Jersey where she divides her time between writing sexy and sassy contemporary sports-themed romances, laughing with her family, and caring for not one, but three heartless cats.
Please check out Michele’s debut contemporary sports-themed romance series. Her first book will be published in Winter, 2013.
Here is a brief synopsis of book one , temporarily titled OCTAGON GIRL:
Logan Rettino,an infamous ex-ballerina turned Octagon girl, struggles to reclaim some semblance of her glamorous, financially stable, and injury-free lifestyle, but her preoccupation with the past places her new job as a mixed martial arts card carrier at risk. Her boss issues an ultimatum: convince the brooding, welterweight Keane O’Shea to fight for the lucrative ultimate fighter title, or pack up her locker. A daunting task, as she discovers the reason for the handsome warrior’s rage—that Keane’s true battle lies in triumphing over his own, troubled past.
