With the World Cup in full swing, I have written a new short story featuring some of the characters from my upcoming novel The Last Word. Here's a short description:
Camden Templeton is a Brit trapped in soccer-ignorant Texas. But she is determined to dodge baseball and NASCAR in order to watch the infamous World Cup 2006 final...the match with the head-butt seen round the world. This short story is a stand-alone vignette from the world of the upcoming novel "The Last Word."
In honor of the US Men's National Team's first match, this story is free on Kindle through Monday. Here's the link: "Camden and the World Cup."
Go USA! Vamos Espana!
Sal Terranova and Camden Templeton are cousins separated by upbringing, the Atlantic Ocean, and a common language. Then fate (with help from a run of bad luck and a dead uncle) throws them together in the least likely of places: Texas. Exiled in this strange land, they must band together in order to save the family bookstore from financial ruin, from its own insane employees, and probably from themselves. This is the story of what happens when The Sopranos meets Fawlty Towers...in a bookstore.
