If there’s anything I love as much as reading and writing romance it’s watching football.  I can’t believe the season is nearly over, and I’ll have a long, dry spell before it starts again. Saturdays and Sundays I am glued to the television, writing and watching my college and pro teams.

But you know what the strangest thing is? I’ve never written a story with a football player as my hero. I guess it’s just one of those things, although I don’t know why. If anyone is an alpha male, it’s gotta be a football player. Right?

I used to manage rock bands and ciountry western sisngers, and it took me all these years to write a story with one of them as a hero. In March my novella, Having It All, will be out as part of Ellora’s Cave’s Flavors of Ecstacy I-The Cavemen Series. As I do with all my heroes, I fell in love with MacFontana while I was writing this. I actually found a picture of someone who cam pretty darn close to looking like him, and kept it tacked to my computer station the whole time I was writing it.

But today my heart belongs to the Arizona Cardinals and quarterback Kurt Warner, who is a true hero.
