I'm celebrating a new book, so I decided to put myself through the Friday Five routine. Here goes ...
Hi, I'm Keena Kincaid, creator of the Friday Five blog and author of Something Special, the last book in The Wild Rose Press' Class of '85 series. I typically write historicals with paranormal elements, but I went a little crazy in 2010 and wrote two contemporary novellas.
Now...here are some well-known (and little known) facts about me.
FIVE FUN FACTS:
- Favorite beverage: Coffee. Black. Sugarless. Strong. I could live without it, but why?
- One habit you just can’t break: Hot baths. Showers use less water and energy, but I love my long, hot, soaking baths.
- Do you sing in the shower: I sing nowhere--and no one wants me to.
- Do you dream in color: Vivid color. Sometimes when I wake up, I'm not sure which "life" I'm waking to.
- TV shows on DVR? The Walking Dead. I love a good zombie show.
- What is your recurring dream? I used to have a dream where I had to run over a field (avoiding by pit bulls) through an abandoned office building (avoiding men with guns), and out the front door to steal a Jeep (avoiding ruts and cliffs). I died in my dream numerous times before I figured out how to do it.
- Shoes or purses? The quest for the perfect handbag continues.
- Favorite ways to spend a rainy day? Nesting on the couch, reading a good book and watching bad movies on TV.
Using these four words, write a sentence: One. Hope. Frank. Jimmy (supplied by my nephew who is playing Just Dance on the Wii).
Frank and Jimmy had one day to decide which one would travel to Lego World and which one would stay home and marry Hope.
Jane Grey, a risk analyst at NASA, returns to Summerville to close her uncle's estate. The lone survivor of a domestic murder, she hopes the trip will allow her to finally be at peace with her childhood. But past is prologue in small towns, and someone in Summerville is ready to kill again to get his hands on her inheritance.
Police detective Andy Morgan is a man with a mission: Find the evidence that will put Summerville’s corrupt, drug-addicted chief of police behind bars.
When Jane turns to him for help, their shared past collides with the present, risking his investigation and their lives.
She tried to dispel the tension between them with a laugh, but almost choked instead. Her body still hummed with a need to touch and be touched. Andy didn’t laugh either. He circled her wrist with his fingers. Heat darkened his eyes, and it wasn’t just lust; she knew what that looked like in a man’s eyes. The want in his suggested he thought her something special.
Misgivings gathered in her chest. She was special, all right; a special case that should be left alone. “I really shouldn’t have come here. I just needed... needed...”
She sucked in a shaky breath. She had no idea what she wanted to say or should say. Ten years of college, three Ph.D.s and she was speechless. Pathetic.
