I’ve known Tina for a couple of years now and I’ve had the pleasure of having a few drinks and chatting about all things publishing. She’s fun, energetic and she loves to write. So, get to know Tina and enter to win a copy of her book, Never with a Rich Man.
Many, many eons ago, forty-six to be exact, I went on my first date with a guy I’d met in college. It was homecoming eve and he took me out to dinner. There was a “small,” incident with a bottle of steak sauce during our meal, an incident that was so mortifying, I’m surprise he asked me out again. (Which he did. We’ve been married for over forty-three years.)
It took me a long time to get over the embarrassment, until I was finally able to tell the story to friends and acquaintances. When I started writing, one of the first stories I wrote included this incident. This was in 1996. I set the story aside, but it kept niggling in my mind, until about a year ago, I finally pulled it out, rewrote, polished, and submitted it to my editor. “Never With a Rich Man” is now up for pre-sale on Amazon and will be released on November 2nd.
In the story, Hogan and Cassie go to dinner at a high-class restaurant in Milwaukee. In real life, Al and I, being college students, went to a place called The Big Steer. Being a couple of farm kids, we thought it was pretty fancy, but we now know it was just a family restaurant.
Blurb: Cassie Jordan has been lied to, cheated on, and passed over for a promotion. All by men. She was tired of men. She didn’t need a man, and certainly not a rich man. Then she met Hogan Wynnters, and ordinary salesman – or so she thought.
Hogan Wynnters is part owner of a family business and has the kind of money Cassie despises. He’s tired of women coming on to him because he’s rich. He decides to never tell a woman about his financial status until she gets to know him as a person. As an undercover FBI agent, he uses his knowledge of antiquities to find the people who are bringing stolen WWII artifacts into the country. Unfortunately, the woman he’s falling for is in the crosshairs of the FBI.
Can they work through their preconceived notions and find true love?
