You have all been instrumental in helping me write Breaking new Ground. A special thanks to Evelyn Jules for the title. You’re on the Acknowledgement page, my friend. Today is the last post. The story was released yesterday. and I’m in Happy Dance mode.
This week is a bit different. Marcus O’Brien, the town advisory board chairman is a widower. Anna Youngblood is at the office after storming out of James Chandler’s penthouse the night before. She waits for the usually on-time boss to appear. He shows up dressed in a nifty suit, new tie and has left his toupee at home. Smelling of Old Spice, he tells Anna to take the day off since he will be other-wise engaged. And off he goes.
Excerpt in eight:
Anna felt like a mess after a restless night of sleeping on the couch so she washed up in the office bathroom vowing never speak to that slime ball James um Chandler ever again.
She speaks to the boss who is late, “You look very nifty this morning, sir, I checked your appointment book but there’s nothing on the schedule unless you have somewhere special in mind.”
“That I do, Anna,” he ran his hand over his ,sparsely covered with hair, scalp, “ I hope I look okay without the rug.”
Marcus O’Brien drove carefully north on Main Street in his restored old BMW and waved to friends strolling along but didn’t stop until he made a right turn into the familiar wooded property hidden just past a construction site. Admiration for this courageous friend who lived alone in a wonderland of flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables cultivated by her filled his heart.
He maneuvered through the driveway, parked and grabbed three apples to juggle when he rang the bell
Celia Brown opened the door wide, hands on hips, old Lucy by her side.
“Marcus, it’s about time you came calling.”

Brown’s property, he has no idea what he’s up against. The elderly
widow and her six year old granddaughter prepare for battle. River’s
Edge, the town that believes in kindness to strangers, jumps into the
fray. Add romance, kids, and pride to the mix; there are lessons to
be learned in Breaking New Ground.
