Since the age of eleven I loved the word of writing and have written stories since that time. In my other life, I work in Equal Employment and Civil Rights for the Federal Government. Before becoming a public servant, I briefly practiced law after graduating from the University of Maryland School of Law.
I have self-published my novel as an e-book on various sites, including Amazon, and have printed hard copies on demand. I have a complete marketing plan, and have promoted my book in various arenas. I have submitted this story in several writing contests and received favorable reviews, including praise for witty dialogue. In 2008, I had a small thought piece published in the local Baltimore magazine B, and had a short story published in the 2012 winter edition of the Maryland Writer’s Association, Pen In Hand. I also participated as an actor and screenwriter in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore chapters of the 48 Hour Film Project for the year 2012. In addition, I am an active blogger, and have completed another novel in the growing genre of urban fantasy.
Rule #6: Be mysterious, but always approachable…keep him wanting more!
Rule #11: Always remember, no sex in the beginning. Make him wait!
Rule #19: You’ve got to give a little to get a little. Be giving of yourself, and it will make a lasting impression to keep your Mr. Right.
Sheila and Denise are successful, funny and attractive, but very single women. Not that being single is horrible; but when Denise is hassled to have a date to an old friend’s wedding-of-the-century, and Shelia needs an escort to an industry banquet where everyone who’s anyone will be in attendance, being single loses its perks. To add to the dilemma, Sheila tells a little white lie to her workplace nemesis about dating a successful music producer, which explodes into a career-threatening rumor. Under extreme pressure from family, friends and coworkers, they resort to making a pact. Their Mission: Get A Man in Three Months. They will use “proven” rules to finding their Mr. Rights. Rules that worked for a friend of a friend …how hard could it be?
Join them in their hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking adventures as chapter by chapter they follow a new rule, and delve into the treacherous world of Washington, D.C. dating. The gal pals suffer through speed dating (Sam Needs-a-Bath). They allow themselves to be set up on blind dates (Bitter Crying Kevin). They try a dating service (Apron-Strings Adrian). They try the bar scene (Smoky the Bear who smokes more than cigars). They even meet men in the beauty salon (Javier Not Quite Straight). And there’s more, much more. Surrounded by family drama, workplace stressors and their own hang-ups about love, will the rules actually help them find their Mr. Rights in time for their events?
