From the Author

>> A Brief Excerpt from The Triumphs and Travails of Talisman Turner, a beach read for Kindle <<
 
"You've never been this silent." Doug swallows. "I want you to know it's not you." As I wait for Doug to tell me it's really him, I count the number of fuzzy ducklings swimming behind their mother in the pond's green water. One, two, three--

"It's the Sox."

Startled, I swivel to face him. "What?"

"I've been reading an article about miracles and sacrifices, so...I'm giving up monogamy. Hook-ups. Basically anything fun you can do with a girl."

"You're what?" I ask in disbelief as a skateboarder in a red cap and jean shorts crashes into a nearby garbage can.

"I'm giving up going all the way so that my team will go all the way," he says with the pride of a bargain hunter who has found an original 2/55 quilted Chanel handbag with a metallic strap made in 1955, at a price so low, it's clear the second-hand store selling it didn't realize the bag's value.

I poke Doug in the chest. "You can't do that." I poke him again. "That's not going to work. It's magical thinking."

"I'm not trying to be the next Houdini."

"I'm not talking about magic tricks, but magical thinking. It's a phenomenon where people think they can affect grand changes in the world through their thoughts or actions, and I--"

"Don't use your psychobabble on me."

"It's not psychobabble."

"Tal. You basically told me that sexual chemistry is simply a matter of body odor."

I button up my cargo-style jacket. While it protects me from the late spring breeze blowing through the Garden, unfortunately, it's can't protect me from the chill slowly enveloping my heart. "No, not BO, but the MHC theory."

"Don't try to convince me again that you're attracted to me because of my armpits."

Doug's dismissive attitude stings, but I should expect it. He never appreciated the theory of attraction centered around MHC (Major Histocompatibility Complex) genes, one of my favorite theories I had learned about when studying psychology at college. In a nutshell, evolution created the world's best matchmaker inside of your nose...

About the Author

Do you know someone who actually hit the limit of her library card? When she was 10 years old? Well, now, you do.

I was that kid. My love of reading grew into a love of talking...and then (thank goodness!) evolved into a love of writing.

I hope my sweetly romantic, wildly funny, and totally addictive "feel-good" novels will give you the perfect escape from reality...if only for a few hours.
