If I Never Heard of Me, Would I Read My Book?

My jaded response to this is, yes!

In my early years I struggled to write the ‘great’ novel. Boxes of research, historically accurate recounts of situations long buried. Pages of prose jam-packed with characters on grand journeys.

They never went anywhere. I struggled with the process and the finished product left me lacking fulfillment. Downcast one day—not so very long ago—my husband asked me what I was reading. I perked up and told him about the book and what kept me moving forward in the story.

“Well, that’s what you should write,” he told me.
“Write what you would LOVE to read.”

It was a light-bulb moment and I have never looked back.

Now, I only write the story I would indeed gravitate to. So “yes,” even if I didn’t know me, I would read “Hit ‘n Run” because it is just the kind of adventure I could sink my teeth into as a reader. I have completely fallen in love with my characters as I wrote them and knowing what we know as human beings, when something is loved, it is easy for other’s to love it too.

Hit 'N Run
Lori Power
(Under Suspicion #1)

Determined to build a better life, and forget their past, a freak accident crashes Lorna Tymchuk and Mitch Morgan back into each other’s lives.

It’s more than a “Hit ’n Run” that needs to be taken care of at the police station. False identification, miscommunication and a past better left buried surface to plunge these recently reunited lovers into a deadly game of cat and mouse trying to figure out who the bad guys really are.

All threads pulled threaten the very fabric of their fragile relationship. Caught between desire suspicions, each must decide who to trust and how far to go to follow their instincts.

An Excerpt from Hit 'N Run:

As Mitch’s hand reached out for her shoulder she shrunk from his touch, again a little girl who couldn’t stand sympathetic contact. She bathed him with a hard look. “How could you do this to me,” she spat. “After what we shared, how can you think I was involved? How dare you!”

A shuddered breath wracked her tense body and she refused to let the tightening of her throat release the threatened tears as she continued in a hoarse whisper. “I would have thought your investigation would have revealed where the money came from,” she said forming air quotes over the word investigation. Swallowing to contain her emotions further, Lorna stood in the hopes of putting an end to the conversation. “As for Tim Fong. He’s the CEO of Aqua Oil. My client. I am their marketing person. I handle PR and media relations. That’s what I do—what my company does. Investigate that! I don’t know and have never heard of the Fong Family. I am sure everyone has some shady characters in their background. As you unearthed, I obviously did.”

“Lorna …”

Feeling the weight of sadness envelope her like a blanket, Lorna waved her hand at him, palm outstretched in dismissal. “I’m tired Mitch.” She sighed forcing her feet to move and hold her weight without shaking as she backed away.

Looking down at the one and only man who ever made her feel special, wanted, desired, Lorna realized all of it – her feelings – the way she thought he felt for her – it was all a big lie. Just another lie. He used her to get to her client and she felt deflated, drained of all emotion. How could someone she had been so open, so intimate with assume that she was somehow involved in an illegal crime ring? Because you have a record of being involved in criminal activities.

“Lorna, please. I can’t lose you again . . .” Mitch stood to reached for her hand.

She turned at her name. The anguish in his voice almost, but not quite able to penetrate her defensive shell. Arms crossed protectively over her stomach, holding firm to her sides, she lowered her head. “You’re not the person I thought you were,” she said turning. From over her shoulder she continued. “You’re not someone I want in my life.”
