The Men of Machismo series revolves around nine friends who worked together in a male revue. Each book follows the life of a different former dancer seven years later. The Bad Decision Legacy is Will and Tonya’s story.
Tonya’s psychotic ex is stalking her. Not the best time to meet men, still her best friend begs her to show up for blind date dinner. Her plan includes the meet and greet, then heading home. Of course, she never expected a man who sent every hormone in her body into high alert. Will looked like her next bad decision.
Will’s work as a divorce lawyer included discouraging embittered women from ramming their soon to be exes with the car or setting fire to their husband’s latest girlfriend. No wonder he fell hard for Tonya. The first woman he met with no agenda, well almost none. It’s obvious Tonya is knee deep in trouble, but refuses to ask for help. Instead of running the other way, he contemplates dashing into the tornado she refers to as her life. With any luck, he might survive.
First, tell me a little about your book J….
This book started with women stalked by ex lovers topic of woman. This is actually a real issue that not too many people ever think about. What if the ex was more than a little annoying, what if he’s crazy? That's the initial premise.
I throw in a delectable lawyer who used to be a former male revue dancer. Some wisecracking friends, trouble at work, and a forest fire and you have the bare bones plot for The Bad Decision Legacy.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated or did you always just know?
My mother taught me to read and write when I was four. When I finally hit first grade, I read the reader in one week and found it lame. After I told everyone how the stories ended, much to my teacher’s dismay, I made up alternative endings.
What inspired you to write your first book and what was it?
I wrote my first book in junior high. It was a farce about the creation of the world with commercial placements.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
I know several women who have been stalked by their exes, buta former boyfriend’s new girlfriend stalked me. She was a mess who vandalized my car, called into my job to get me into trouble, did the hang up phone calls, etc. Finally, in desperation, I called my ex to ask him to get his girlfriend to back off. He not only did that, but quit seeing her altogether,
How do you chose when/which characters die in your books?
I’m not a big one for killing off characters, but there are natural consequences. By that I mean, if a character runs out in front of a speeding semi-truck, he won’t make it to book two.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
New is a relative term. I go to the library book sale and load up on books. Just read a book by Jill Gregory that has me wanting to read more.
Who do you look up to as a writer?
Brenda Novak because she’s a great writer, but a better person. She manages to keep all the balls in the air including her writing person, work, touring, and especially family. Even though she is a best-selling author, there is not a drop of diva in her.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Characters who take over,
Who designed the cover? And do you help with them?
Dawne Dominique designs my cover. I troll Pinterest looking for models I like, which I send the links to her.
Did you learn anything from writing your books and what was it?
First, I would stay in one genre with one name. I’m releasing four books one right after another under four different pen names. People always ask me when I’m going to release another book unaware I just did.
Are there any books you think some of us should read, just because?
I think any of my romantic comedies should entertain anyone with their quirky characters and laugh aloud antics. I will shamelessly admit that when I wrote the majority of them, I was single and dating. The bizarre dates or crazy situations could be based on real life events. Love never runs smooth.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
I gain insights from readers and I’d love to hear from them. Anything from names of characters, plots you’d like to see,secondary characters you’d like to see more of, etc.
