Did You Know?
When I wrote A Fatal Fumble, originally, the story was quite different. There was no land developer. Mary Mitchell behaved in a much more snooty way. And I even had Robin breaking into someone’s house!
That’s what happens when you write a book. You start out with a plan, and sometimes the story and the characters take you to a different place.
Here’s a few other things you might not know about A Fatal Fumble:
🏈 Sheriff Chris Payne was supposed to attend WVU on a football scholarship as their starting quarterback. But after a knockdown fight with his overbearing father, he and his friends got drunk and wound up in a car accident that permanently damaged his shoulder. No more scholarship!
🌈 After Robin moved out and left for college, Jenn, the younger sister, felt very alone. It wasn’t until she went to college herself that she found a strong circle of friends in her sorority and left loneliness behind.
💰 Mary Mitchell spent several years as a hostess and a server at Mountain Gold. The tips were fantastic, but she wanted a real career, which was why she went to work for Camila Worth and Worthwhile Homes.
