Bridget Jones's Baby

I was watching The Today Show the other morning and heard the news that the affable Bridget Jones is back and having a baby! I can't wait to see it. After all, the original Bridget Jones's Diaries helped inspire me to write Dating Maggie. Bridget's deadpan, dry English humor is what sets her apart as a heroine Americans love.

In addition, I was just thinking about the fact that her story featured both an alpha male and a beta male. Hint: Darcy is the beta IMHO. How's a girl to choose between a handsome, slightly jerkish alpha or a dependable nice guy? Part of the fun of these books is that she's been able to have both! This has been on my mind since I just finished and submitted my co-written romance which features a rich alpha male. It was fun to write but has had me craving a chance to write a beta hero. Maybe he'll be a software engineer, poet or elementary school teacher...

On the other hand, I've also been dreaming about writing a hero based on Tom Keen from The Blacklist and he's no beta. Decisions, decisions...

Anyhow, I got off on a tangent. The point is, now this charming neurotic, weight obsessed British gal is having a baby. I can't wait to see what happens next. I will be gathering my gal pals for a night out soon.

Here's the trailer:

Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

Greyson
My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.
