Meet Kinzie Monroe, my alter ego

Wonderful news! My Inspirational Romance, Reservation for Two, was picked up by Whiskey Creek Press. WooHoo! However, there seems to be another Ann Patrick writing for them—hence my alter ego. I was a little disappointed with the news that I’d have to come up with another pen name (my mom was the one who came up with Anne Patrick) but I’m quickly getting used to it. It’s sort of exciting really. And I suppose it’s probably a good idea since this novel is strictly an Inspirational romance. That way my readers won’t be disappointed when they pick it up expecting to find a story filled with murder and mayhem.

Reservation for Two is a story that is very close to my heart because the main character, Maggie O’Brien is a combination of some very special ladies in my life who was the inspiration behind the story. Have you ever had an idea grab hold of you to the point where you’re almost consumed by it? Well that’s what happened with this one. I came up with the idea last Thanksgiving and by New Years I had my first draft. It was the fastest I’d ever written anything. Click on my new link in the side bar titled, My Alter Ego to read a blurb on Reservation for Two (let me know what you think about the background). Hopefully it won’t be my only Inspirational Romance novel to be published. I’m working on one now. And for you suspense junkies out there, I’m working on one of those too. I hope to have the first drafts done by the first of the year. At least that is my goal.

P.S. I googled Kinzie Monroe, so there better not be anymore lurking out there. Note for aspiring authors, google your name and book titles so you don’t run into this same problem. LOL!

I'm so happy for you Anne. Your excerpt sounds wonderful. You sure are going to be busy gal.

I have that trouble too Mary Beth.

Thank you Miss Mae and Irene. Yes, I'm sure I will be very busy in the coming year. But I will be doing something I truly love...well the editing I can't say I really love, but the writing and getting reaquainted with all my characters will be fun.

Thanks for stopping by ladies! *Hugs*
