Monday Mayhem – Fast Five!

What I’ve been working on: Too many things. I have at least 4 projects started and not enough time for any of them. I’m trying to make myself pick one and stick with it.

What’s running around in the back of my mind: So many plot bunnies, so little time. I’m trying to finish up one project so I can focus on revisions to Spring Chickens. I hope to re-release it later in 2014.

What I’ve accomplished: Uh…does laundry count?

What new goal I’m chasing: Finish revisions to current story and start sending submissions by the end of March.

What I saw: Planes, automobiles and hotel rooms. Oh, and this pretty carrot cake

Weekend Writing Warrior – 2/23/14

This week, I’m sharing 8 more from The Art Lover!

Reflected in that funhouse reject mirror, her arms were bands of white slashing across the peachy-gold of his skin. Tiny hairs the color of coal dust curled around her fingers. The swell of her hips played peek-a-boo from behind his. Powerful, thick thighs all but blocked her from the frame. He covered her hands with his but didn’t try to halt her progress or guide her. She smiled and pressed a kiss to the soft underside of his triceps.

“From the first time I saw you, I thought you might be perfect. Now I know.”

Starving artist Kelsey Tecato takes being The Templeton Museum’s artist in residence a little too literally. By day, she puts on a show of painting for the crowds that shuffle through the galleries, but at night, her muse runs wild.

Mitch Jameson is a guy’s guy. A cop moonlighting as a security guard, he has little use for the artsy-fartsy stuff, but the mysterious Ms. Tecato’s sexy portraits call to him.

So does an interior alarm.

When Officer Jameson goes to investigate, he finds a paint-splattered goddess working on a self-portrait–in the nude.

A couple tubes of paint and a roll in the drop cloths later, free-spirited Kelsey helps Officer Jameson discover his passion for art.

Monday Mayhem – Hanging with Jenny from L.A.

My pal and fellow Unforgettable Heroes author, Jennifer Johnson, is here to play with us today!

****

YAY!! It’s President’s Day! That day that my kid might have had off except we’re on the bajillionth snow day so the little buggers have to make up all the days they’ve been home tracking wet icy tracks across the floor of the house and asking me where their gloves are.

Since Margaret is letting me hang out here today, I wanted to share a few interesting tidbits about presidents.

Calvin Coolidge had a pygmy hippo and two raccoons as pets.

William Taft had a bigger bathtub installed in the White House to accommodate his 300+ lb. body.

John Quincy Adams used to skinny dip in the mornings in the Potomac River during his presidency.

James Garfield was not only ambidextrous, but he could write Latin with one hand and Greek with the other at the same time.

Isn’t that cool?

My name is Jennifer Johnson, and I write contemporary romance. I’m thrilled to be one of the authors of the Unforgettable Heroes anthology along with Margaret Ethridge, my friend and one time hotel roomie.

My book in the anthology is called Holding Out for a Hero. The hero is a street person who catches the interest of Abigail Benson, a down-on-her-luck socialite.

Here is my favorite picture of me:

JJ

This is at my aunt’s country chalet in L.A. That stands for Lower Alabama if you didn’t know.

Do you notice what is not here?

Snow.

Why? Because I am done with the snow days, people. So, on this President’s Day, I’m just going to think about lying in the hammock, ruminating on obscure presidential facts, and NOT about winter temperatures or the *S* word.

Ready for warm weather. Right here.

Weekend Writing Warrior – 2/16/14

This week, I’m sharing 8 more from The Art Lover!

Not daring to meet his gaze, she slipped one finger under the top button of his shirt and worked it free. “I need you.”

“Whoa, hold on a second,” he rasped, his fingers closing convulsively on her hips as she moved on to the next.

Kelsey shook her head, punctuating her stubborn refusal by loosening another two buttons before sparing a glance from under her lashes. “You’re perfect,” she whispered, yanking the tails of the shirt from his pants.

“What are you doing?”

She freed the last button then shoved the shirt over his shoulders, trapping his arms at his sides. “I’m going to paint you.”

Weekend Writing Warrior – 2/9/14

I’m back! I missed you all!

Here are eight sentences from my latest release, The Art Lover:

“I promise you’ll like the trouble I have planned for you, Officer Jameson.”

He blinked but didn’t back down as she approached. “Seems any friend of Bert and Miri’s should just call me Mitch.”

She liked the sexy bravado that backed the insolent once-over he used as a defense. Raising her hand to her throat, she waited until she was sure his eyes followed. Her fingertips were coated in a shade of teal one could only get from a glob of canary smooshed with a bead of cerulean. Reverting to her favorite canvas, she trailed them from the hollow of her throat through the valley between her breasts, tracing the exact route she hoped his mouth would take. And soon.
