It’s my gift to everyone to celebrate the end of this infernal presidential election cycle, which has gone on way too long.
Today in the podcast I talk once again about strong women because that’s the focus of my fiction.
As always, I close with a reading from my debut romantic suspense, Below the Beltway, and this week it revolves around our heroine, Alex Gantry, and her adversary, Lisa Gale Dalaney. Here’s a partial snippet:
“Alex Gantry.” Alex was as formal as she could muster.
“It’s Lisa Gale. I wondered if we could chat.”
“Not sure what we have to talk about.”
“Your relationship with my ex-husband, for one,” she replied.
“Oh, that. But you’re still using his name? Embarrassing. How sad for you.” “He’s really not the man you think he is,” she said.
“No man is. But that body of his, I mean, what’s a girl to do?” Alex replied. Taunting her was fun, because with it came risk.
“T.J. is a very complicated man.”
“And stamina? I mean, it’s better than two hours at the gym. He just keeps coming. At me, that is. He can’t get enough,” Alex replied.
What inspired me to read from this part of my book was something big that happened in the cultural world today, which I discuss on this week’s podcast.
