My new book, Score, will be available for purchase from Bold Strokes Books in a couple of days.

It will be available where all books are sold on March 13.

Score is the story of the MVP of a women’s football league. She plays in Houston, TX and has lots of adoring fans. Yes, she enjoys the company of many of these women in bed, but although there is sex in the book, the gist of the story happens when Ronda sustains a season ending injury in the second game of the season.

Her assistant, and part-time bed mate, Gayla, is there to take care of Ronda and nurse her back to health. In the process, they fall in love. While Ronda is thrilled to have Gayla as her partner, she is stressed over the thought that she may never play football again.

What calms her and soothes her during these thoughts? Her Vicodin.

In the beginning, Gayla is in control of the Vicodin, doling out her doses when she’s supposed to. But, as Ronda gets better, she takes over her own medication and starts to take more than she’s supposed to and much more frequently than she should.

This story was both fun and hard to write. It was fun because I love football and love the idea of a woman having the fame and recognition that is normally saved for male athletes. It was difficult because it transported me back to some dark days in my life.

Like so many others in the 80’s, I was a partier. Yes, it was all fun and games until cocaine became more than just a thing to do on occasion. It became an all day every day addiction. I slept maybe two nights a week. It wasn’t easy to quit, either. But, I did. To this day, if I discovered cocaine  anywhere near me, I know I’d have to leave to not be tempted. Fortunately, I don’t find myself in that situation. Ever.

So I sympathized with Ronda. I understood what she was going through and I think (hope) I did it justice. This book deals with fame, love, and addiction. I hope that doesn’t scare you off and I hope you’ll give it a shot. Like I said, you can buy it from BSB on March 1.

Questions? Comments? Let me have ’em!

I’ll be doing a random drawing for a free signed book on Friday, March 3. To enter, just leave a comment.

Thanks and happy reading!
