Summer will be upon us before you know it, filled with thunderstorms, hurricanes, and a twister or two. I live in the southern United States, and have learned to be prepared. I can pack my wallet, medicines, and the cat within minutes. Maybe this is why I include weather and the destruction it can cause, in some of my books.
SHIVER: a White Mountains Thriller, a romantic suspense, is set in present-day New Hampshire, where I lived for many years. Destiny Blake is bothered by two local men intent on garnering her attention, but she falls for an older art history professor, whom she saves on a mountain trail. A murder, a stalker, and a couple of ghostly voices, as well as her hot and cold relationship with Jacob Oliver, come together during an icy snowfall (weather!!!) on her mountain.
I will follow this with IGNITE: a White Mountains Thriller that stars two paramedic firefighters and the firestorm that threatens their lives (Wind!!!)
In my Kilted Athletes Through Time series, My Lady Highlander, My Dark Highlander, and the new My Hunted Highlander, powerful magic creates storms that carry both the bad guys and my heroes, through time.
What am I trying to say? Enjoy sunny days, but prepare for bad weather by picking up a book, and read.
