To introduce myself, I’ll tell a little story.
Once upon a time . . . (no groaning! I’ll keep it short) I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas; married too young, divorced, married again, started a family. Moved to Florida, moved to the Pacific Northwest where I now live. Along the way I became seriously interested in writing.
Several years ago I visited my lifelong friend Sandra Allen back in Texas, and we spent the evening reading my diary from our high school years. We laughed until our faces hurt. Then one of us made a comment about how sexually frustrated our boyfriends must have been back then. After all, we were GOOD girls! We’d make out at the drive-in movies, but at some point we’d say (most emphatically), “NO.” We mused about what our high school steadies might be doing these days.
Since I’ve been writing short stories for years, I immediately thought, “Hmmm. Searching for old boyfriends. That would make a good book.” That night of laughter with my good friend led to the novel I co-authored with Sandra, I.O.U. SEX. The book tells the story of three Baby Boomer women—best friends since high school—who did what we wouldn’t dare—tracked down their old boyfriends.
I.O.U. SEX is available as an eBook on Amazon. Visit our blog for more info: iousex.blogspot.com
I think y’all will enjoy it as much as Sandra and I enjoyed writing it.
(NOTE: We did NOT search for our real boyfriends!)
