From the Author
For example, back in 2011, I knew I wanted to write a book that involved a black cat. That's all I knew. Black cats are often associated with witches so I decided to write a witch paranormal. I know a fair amount about the witch trials so I thought it would be fun to embed some of that information in the book. What if the hero witch is - a teacher? Like a college professor who teaches a class on witchcraft? Hmmm. Teacher, witch, cat. Yes! The title Spell Cat was born, before a word had landed on the page.
The first book in the Balls to the Wall series was originally going to be called David, Gareth and Goliath. I decided that title wasn't beachy enough and played with the fact that two of the heroes are volleyball players. Hmm. Fun to separate the words and make it a little provocative. Volley Balls. That became the title of a book that started a Balls cascade. As soon as book 2, Fire Balls, became a bestseller, people started sending me ideas for Balls titles. I literally received many dozens of them. I sure am glad I changed that name!
One of the many titles that people always suggested to me was, of course, Blue Balls! How could we not think of that one? But when i decided that the unique twins that appeared in now Balls should have their own book, and since they were artists, I decided it was time to use that irresistible title -- with a small, French variation. The title became Bleu Balls. Hope you enjoy the title -- and the book.
