What's It All About?

I'm up to 14,330 words for my novella, which I somehow don't think it will be a novella. (Diane I'll have no comment from you on this point thank you.) Anyway I thought I would share with you my blurb. I'm getting a good feel for this one: I like both Mac and Brooke because they have been playing nice. The only spanner thrown into the works was Brooke having a much younger Down syndrome brother which I didn't see coming. He is such a great kid anyway so I have forgiven her for that little hiccup. Even the secondary characters are playing nice. The ones that are suppose to be nice are and the ones who are toilet paper are. :-) I'm waiting for the bomb to fall to tell you the truth, none of my characters behave this good.

'If I Were A Rich Man'

Brooke Fairfax is the rebellious member of her family. It is a title she has carried for so long with pride she no longer knows how not to rebel against everything her father stands for. Now out on her own and earning a living from her art work, she resents even more her father’s interference in her life.

Being summon home after an altercation she found herself in doesn’t help matters. But after seeing the new mechanic working for old Fred she decides a little fun is just what she needs. Besides what better way to get her father back, then to start a torrid affair with the hired help, so to speak.

Mac Stafford arrived in Olive Grove not intending to stay. When Old Fred, who owns the garage offers him a job as his mechanic he changes his mind. After all it was an old country town, a perfect place to lay low for a while. He could leave his past behind him and come to terms with the death of his younger brother. A death he had caused.

One thing was for sure, the last thing he needed in his life was a woman. He’d had more than enough of lying cheating women. He sure didn’t need Brooke Fairfax sashaying her cute little butt around the place. She had trouble written all over her, and if he wasn’t careful he would have that trouble all over him.

I'm going to do an interview with Mac over the next couple of days, and I'll post that on my hero blog. By the way have you been over to have a look at my photo slid some very nice chests on display over there. Even if I do say so myself.
