Genre: Contemporary Romance
~ Synopsis ~
When Sam Middleton catches her classy boyfriend in the throes of a supremely unclassy affair, she retreats to the comfort of a dingy bar that reminds her of home. There, a much younger man entices her to play a game of pool.
He needs a roommate. She needs a place to stay. One thing leads to another and Sam finds herself moving into an apartment building full of college boys. Sam is not easily enticed by the bevy of young studs, but the ambient testosterone causes Sam to reevaluate her position and thrust herself back into the dating pool-table that is.
Dating is much more fun now that she is older, wiser, and the ball is in her hand-so to speak.

~ Author Interview ~

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

  I am a 28 year old single girl who prefers book boyfriends to the real life variety.

 What do you do when you are not writing?

I am working on my Master’s degree in social work or spending time with my family on the farm.

How did you choose the genre you write in?

 I write the genre that I most enjoy reading.

Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?

  The biggest challenge in self publishing for me has been just learning the ropes.  Thankfully I have connected with some amazing people who are happy to help a newbie get through the hoops.

How did you come up with the title? 

 After rereading the book for editing I realized what an integral part of the story the pool table is.  So I searched a list of billiards terms and Ball in Hand had the sort of double entendre I was looking for.

 What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment? 

 The toughest criticism is that my “love scenes” aren’t racy enough.  It’s very hard to write steamy prose without using language that is too dirty.  Hopefully each book will be an improvement.  The best compliments have come from editors who reassured me that while my grammar skills are somewhat lacking my storylines are not lacking.

 Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?

  Thank you for taking the time to read it.  I appreciate it so much.
