#WeWriWa - Weekend Writing Warriors # 59 03.24.12

It's a Sunday thing...

Each Sunday, Weekend Writing Warriors at hosts a fun new meme. Link to their list at http://www.wewriwa.com/ and post eight sentences from a published or unpublished work to your blog on Sunday.

Today I'd like to share 8 sentences from Crisis of Identity. This scene describes Tess' first encounter with Trevor on the common at the Buttermilk ski area near Aspen, Colorado.

Black jeans. Black turtleneck. Tan suede rancher’s coat with fleece lining. Black boots. Long beard. Ponytail. A shiver of cold dread surged from my toes and bolted out the top of my head. The out of place always rattled me, and this man didn’t belong on the slopes.

I hope you enjoyed the excerpt. Here's a blurb about the book...

Tess Copeland is an operator. Her motto? Necessity is the mother of a good con. When Hurricane Irving slams into the Texas Gulf coast, Tess seizes the opportunity to escape her past by hijacking a dead woman’s life, but Shelby Coleman’s was the wrong identity to steal. And the cop that trails her? He’s a U.S. Marshall with the Fugitive Task Force for the northern district of Illinois. Tess left Chicago because the criminal justice system gave her no choice. Now she’s on the run from ghosts of misdeeds past—both hers and Shelby’s.

Enter Trevor Smith, a pseudo-cowboy from Houston, Texas, with good looks, a quick tongue, and testosterone poisoning. Will Tess succumb to his questionable charms and become his damsel in distress? She doesn’t have to faint at his feet—she’s capable of handling just about anything. But will she choose to let Trevor be the man? When Tess kidnaps her niece, her life changes. She must make some hard decisions. Does she trust the lawman that promises her redemption, or does she trust the cowboy that promises her nothing but himself?

Crisis of Identity can be purchased at the following sites...


  1. Complicated, can't wait to see how it all plays out!

  2. He sounds pretty darn sexy. Love this set up. Can't wait to see what happens next. :-) Great job!

  3. definitely an interesting intro for the man :-) The snippet certainly encourages the reader to continue reading. Good job.

  4. ack - that anonymous is me - sorry - clicked the wrong button

  5. Sometimes the out of place is safer though. It either means he's 100% himself and honest, or he's hiding out in the open.

    Have I mentioned that I love your cover? I used to live in Colorado and I miss seeing the mountains every day.

  6. Yes what is he doing there? He does sound a bit out of place. I'll be interested to see what she does next.
