Animals may bite but people always suck. It’s the motto thirty-two year old Drue has lived by all his life. He longs for the snow to melt so he can disappear into the wild with nary a nitwit to be seen—to escape the confines of a narrow-minded and cloying society. Yet, when he discovers an old friend has published the book he helped create, a new plan surfaces. Revenge.
Bestselling author Dakota Whitmore is in a slump. Sure, her husband is dead and she's adopted his long-time mistress's child, but she's endured more difficult things.

How about uber sexy Drue, the man who helped her pen her first—and only, bestseller? Nothing could possibly go wrong. Right?
A completed manuscript at 79,000 words, Redeeming Characters is a story about self-doubt and second chances. Selected as an Editor’s Choice in September 2009 at textnovel.com and a semi-finalist in Dorchester’s Next Best Celler contest, it is a humorous and heartwarming portrayal of a bestselling author who has lost her mojo and the man that got away.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
