Posted on Oct 14, 2012 by Maggie Wells   18 Comments | Posted in Blog

My story, Portrait of Passion, is a part of Passionate Exhibitions anthology AVAILABLE NOW at all your favorite retailers! Check it out:

Museums. Places of grandeur and mystery, hidden corners and secrets. Walk the halls of any museum and find a past life in a necklace, an alternate reality in a painting, a terrible curse from a statue, or your wildest fantasies come to life. From the distant past to the far-flung future, these stories will titillate and tantalize. Welcome to the Passionate Exhibition.

Here are my Sunday Six from Portrait of Passion:

Before she could stop herself, she started mixing paint colors in her head—espresso with a dab of goldenrod. Maybe a dash of burnt umber stirred in to get that reddish tinge.

“I don’t need any trouble,” he said, but the rasp in his voice told a different story.

His words may have been no-nonsense, but the way those amber-flecked eyes raked her from head to toe promised nonsense of the most delicious kind. Casually trailing her fingers across the paint-smeared palette she’d tossed aside, she tilted her head and wafted her most innocent smile in his direction as she rubbed the slick acrylics between the pads of her fingers.

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

    I love the colors – it makes your six vibrant. And, I’m curious about what she has planned…

    I loved this episode. I have a few quitesons and I hope someone is willing to take a guess. Where did Pinocchio go? Why didn’t Jackson go looking for his daughter. Now that everyone knows who they are, wouldn’t she be looking for him? If you cross the line then you forget your FTL character and only remember your SB character, but Rumple has always known and remembers his FTL. Doesn’t that mean he has only one character? Would he really lose his FTL memories? Why hasn’t Grumpy found his fairy? Where was she? If henry has the book can’t he fill people in on what is going on or will happen? That book seems to be an underutilized resource.
