Cover Reveal & Semi-Finals!

August is turning out to be an exciting month!  First, I'll be releasing my latest wrestling rom com, a novella titled The Perfect Match at the end of the month, plus I'm officially a semi-finalist in the Page International Screenwriting Competition with my comedy, Sugar & Spies.

Here's the scoop on The Perfect Match.

A ballerina in a wrestling ring?

After an injury ruins her ballet career, financially desperate Julianna Wright takes a job in a pro-wrestling show as the Dynamic Dancing Delila, aka Triple D.  She’s been managed for years, and will do anything to find her independence and support herself, darn it, even if it means dancing for rabid wrestling fans and being named after a bra size.

Hunky pro-wrestler Marco the Magnificent is stunned when he sees his childhood crush performing center ring.  It’s no place for a lady, well, not a fragile and lovely lady like Julianna at any rate.  Marco wants nothing more than to protect her from the brutalities of the business, but, as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and his attempts to talk her out of her career choice simply fuel her fire to succeed.

Julianna’s need for a job, and Marco’s desire to protect her, force them into a partnership both inside and outside of the ring, a partnership that sparks feelings neither of them expects. Pinned under the weight of their explosive chemistry, they’re forced to realize that they truly are… The Perfect Match.

Screenwriting Award

As I mentioned above, Sugar & Spies made the semi-finals in the Page Awards.  Sugar & Spies is one of 25 semi-finalist scripts from a field of more than 1,100 entered in the comedy category.  I won this contest in 2011 with my YA thriller, Escape, and I'm thrilled to have finaled in the comedy category this year.

Here's the log line for Sugar & Spies:

A heartless British spy guilted into running his ailing grandmother's teashop in rural Washington must develop a new set of skills to navigate small town America.

Think, James Bond in a teashop. The secondary characters are a lot of fun, including the "Tea Ladies" a geriatric group that passes their time at the gun range when they're not sipping tea.

Hope you're having a great summer and seeing some awesome movies!

Check out the blurb for The Wife Project:

Socially awkward software genius A.J. Remington needs a wife to seem more accessible to potential clients, but love cannot be a part of the equation.  Having been burned, he knows that love is complicated and painful. A.J. is resigned to a life without love.

Friend and personal chef Katy Walsh has also tasted her share of heartbreak thanks to a failed marriage and she’s determined to avoid that kind of pain, thank-you-very-much. 

But when Katy agrees to help Alex to choose a suitable woman for the role of wife, an unlikely recipe for romance consumes them both.  Can it be that the perfect woman is standing in his kitchen?  And will either of them be willing to risk falling in love as they work on… The Wife Project
