If there’s one thing that writers dread, besides the synopsis of course, it’s a deadline. I, for one, freak out if a deadline is approaching and I’m not where I want to be in the story I’m writing. Luckily for me, I just finished the first draft of SINCE WE WERE 18, the first book in the Jersey Girl Bridesmaid series. I have had a blast writing Maggie and Jax’s story and am already itching to write the next one, WE DANCED ALL NIGHT which features uber responsible lawyer Connie and Jax’s brother, thrill-seeker/surfer dude/bestselling author Johnson.
In a few days that draft will be off to my agent well in advance of my deadline. But for all the other times I freaked and for all my writer friends who dread that deadline, a little fun this Friday with this quote from Douglas Adams.
P.S. For those who might be wondering why I chose a typewriter, I wrote my first book on a typewriter. Not fun.
I’ve been chugging away nicely on the first book in the 2017 Jersey Girl Bridesmaid Series, tentatively titled SINCE WE WERE 18. I don’t normally pick an actor that I think would look like the hero, although I generally have a very good sense of the physical attributes of the hero (and heroine, of course). To be honest, I like to leave a lot to your imagination!
This time, I’m going to share a photo of someone who I think fits my general concept of the hero, sexy billionaire Jackson (Jax) Pierce
Today’s Man Candy choice is handsome Dylan McDermott. I first noticed Dylan in STEEL MAGNOLIAS and later in the first American Horror Story (which I could not keep on watching ’cause it creeped me out!)
The biggest difference between Dylan and my hero is that Jax has dark grey eyes shot through with shards of silver.

Lots has been happening lately, which is why I’m a little behind sometimes on posting. I’m tweaking a new proposal for a new agent. Very excited about that. The hero in the story, Jackson Pierce, is the sexy heir to a real estate empire. He’s all male with black hair and charcoal grey eyes. Lean and delicious.
If I had to pick someone to play him in a movie, I’d go with someone like the ever gorgeous David Gandy. David is an English model who has been in countless ads for Dolce and Gabbana as well as many other companies and has appeared in GQ and various magazines. He’s an advocate for several charities, a car lover and is a competitive race car and motorboat driver.
I could so picture him playing Jackson (Jax to her friends).
