Yesterday I played with two men from Houston and one from Atlanta. One of the fellows from Texas sells massage business franchises across the country. Recently he's added a lucrative bundle of franchises for glue-on eyelashes, a ballooning industry. What? I am not making this up! In fact, the man had to drop out of playing a couple of holes while he was wrapping up the sale of an eyelashing franchise.
I gather some plot and character ideas from my golf partners, but I also grab readers. They are entranced by the idea I write suspense novels. They always ask for my card, quiz me about my writing process, and promise they'll buy my books (or their wives/girlfriends will). Some of my new golf buddies want to tell me stories I might use in an upcoming novel. They are tickled when I tell them about the next suspense novel I'll be polishing, which centers on golf and is entitled BAD LIES. Check out my works on my website: http://www.rolynnanderson.com
Until I get that story out to you, you'll have to be content with my funeral planner series: FADEOUT, SWOON and FAINT (releasing this summer). The setting is a golf course community in Arroyo Grande, California.
Here's the gist of the series:
When their research upends terrible secrets about the dead, a boutique funeral planner and a hard-charging journalist confront danger and clash over how to protect the living.
