Small town values and Big time love.

Shirley Penick

Enemies to Lovers. They fight like crazy and then a different kind of passion takes over.

Deborah Bryant is back to take the final series of photos for her four seasons book of the Lake Chelan area. She’s dreading it. Each time she makes it to Chedwick, she and Terry Anderson fight like wet cats, and then have angry relations. It’s hard on her heart, because the damn man won’t stay out of her thoughts while she’s out of town.

Terry Anderson knows Deborah will be back in Chedwick any day. He can’t decide whether to high tail it out of town, or meet her at the landing and escort her directly to his bed. He’s never had a woman tear him up so bad. The last time she was in town he’d damn near lost his mind.

What does a geeky math nerd know about writing romance?

That’s a darn good question. As a former techy I’ve done everything from computer programming to international trainer. Prior to college I had lots of different jobs and activities that were so diverse, I was an anomaly.

None of that qualifies me for writing novels. But I have some darn good stories to tell and a lot of imagination.

I have lived in Colorado, Hawaii and currently Washington. Going from two states with 340 days of sun to a state with 340 days of clouds, I had to do something to perk me up. And that’s when I started this new adventure called author. Joining the Romance Writers of America and two local chapters, helped me learn the craft quickly and has been a ton of fun.

My family consists of two grown children, their spouses, two adorable grand-daughters, and one grand dog. My favorite activity is playing with my grand-daughters!

When the girls can’t play with their amazing grand-mother, my interests are reading and writing, yay! I started reading at a young age with the Nancy Drew mysteries and have continued to be an avid reader my whole life. My favorite reading material is romance in most of the genres, but occasionally other stories creep into my to-be-read pile, I don’t kick them out.

Some of the strange jobs I have held are a carnation grower’s worker, a trap club puller, a pizza hut waitress, a software engineer, an international trainer, and a business program manager. I took welding, drafting and upholstery in high school, a long time ago when girls didn’t take those classes, so I have an eclectic bunch of knowledge and experience.

And for something really unusual… I once had a raccoon as a pet.

Join with me as I tell my stories, weaving real tidbits from my life in with imaginary ones. You’ll have to guess which is which. It will be a hoot!
