Blurb about Something to Lose:
Everyone has something to lose.
Excerpt from Something to Lose:
I finish and place my plate and fork on the coffee table and turn to face Joey. He’s totally into me, or seems to be, but is it enough for him to want to go for the full gusto? He leans towards me and lightly kisses me just below my right ear. The motion does absolutely nothing for me other than make me feel a little nauseous. It’s not like when Seth’s lips touch me. Thoughts of Seth make my cheeks flush. Joey must take that as a good sign because he goes for my lips next. I fight the urge to flee and try to fake enjoyment. Does it work? Can he tell?
Joey’s hands move around my neck. He pulls me closer. I pull away and look to him shyly.
“You feel it, don’t you?” he asks, a creepy smile on his face.
I smile, as if I’m embarrassed. I know my cheeks are still flushed, mostly with worry for what I’m about to do. I nod my head towards Comb-Over and Crooked Nose, who have just taken seats at the table. “Can they go somewhere?” I ask as innocently as possible. I even bat my eyelashes a couple times just for effect. Joey smiles again, this time triumphant, a knowing smile and then snaps his fingers. The men exit my apartment without saying a word.
What are four things you can’t live without?
My family, my dogs, my computer, a good book.
What is your favorite television show?
Big Bang Theory. I’ve loved it since the very beginning. I was afraid early on that it would be cancelled because shows that I love usually meet a quick and painful death.
What is something you’ve lied about?
I don’t lie much, but it does happen occasionally. The only ones that I can think of are when I faked illness to get out of something that I couldn’t easily just say ‘no’ to.
Who is the last person you hugged?
My daughter, Natalie. She’s always been my snuggle bug.
Do you like kissing in public?
I think a quick peck is okay, but anything more than that is uncomfortable for everyone around you. My daughter usually makes an “ewwww” noise for any kiss she sees.
