This Is Not Working ~ One of those days at a new job when nothing is going right, and then the boss steps in.

Excerpt: from Man Theory:

"I have a theory about love.”

Ethan's statement knocked me from the proverbial mountain top. Eyeing him, I clapped my hand across my mouth to stifle a giggle.

From Day One at our new jobs at Prime Designs, Ethan and I had forged a friendship. I was the artsy heart-sy, emotional gal. Him--the technical, by-the-book pal. We ate an occasional dinner, watched a movie, whatever. Traded small gifts like coffee, a magazine, music. However, Ethan had never made an overture toward me.

Translated: Nothing intimate.

I'd said to myself, "Rats."

For work, we'd traveled to Colorado Springs to attend a workshop on web design innovations. After check-in, I'd joined him at the bridge crossing the lake to decide about lunch before the meetings commenced.

My six-one geek wearing rimless glasses, leaned against the railing and stared into the sparkling blue waters of the high mountain lake. The feathered fowl paddled by.

Have his feelings changed?

I asked in disbelief, "R-really? A theory...about love?"

What’s the first binge-worthy book you read and why was it a must-read?

Mysteries hooked me at an early age, and I had to read all featuring the characters I fell in love with—Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew, and Trixie Belden. I loved the adventures the characters went on and wanted to be a part of them.

What makes your featured book a binge-worthy read?

My stories make you smile and with one, hopefully, you will have to read another and another and another. Just like potato chips.
