A day in the Life of Marie Harte
This should be fun (scary). I’m going with my normal routine during the school year, because my summer routine would scare the heck out of any somewhat organized individual.
After waking up WAY too early (not a morning person), I get my kids moving. So let’s say 7:45, though this year my oldest hits middle school, so we might have to be up nearer to 6:30, which might kill me.
9:00 Both kids are in school, I sit down and go through emails OR I’m uber-productive and actually exercise (if this is the case, fast forward through exercise and a shower to 10:30)
10:00 I’ve somehow become engrossed in silly and strange photos on FB after going through emails, and have wasted much of my morning. Eat a quick breakfast, brew coffee, shower if I haven’t already
10:30 Write or edit. Whatever project I’m working on.
12:00 Maybe break for lunch, maybe work through it if I’m on a roll
3:30 Try to wind down because kids are returning from school. Direct the nonstop-eaters to snacks and hope the pretzels will prevent cannibalism. (Note, I have growing boys.)
4:30 Still working even though I need to stop. * Help kids with homework, discuss who did what at school during the day. Try to get more work done if I can.
6:00 Think about what I need to make for dinner, realize everything is still frozen, swear under my breath a few times, try to cook something more nutritious than hot dogs.
6:45 Feed starving children who can barely stir themselves to move because they’re so hungry. And never mind the many snacks they’ve already consumed. Spend time with kids, break up fights. (Yes, I am also a referee in my spare time.)
8:00 TV time with family.
9:00 Rally kids into bed, then either goof off with TV or a book, or do a little more work.
1:00AM Realize it’s late and get to bed. Try to somehow insert myself into a dream about four or five hot alien shifters looking for an Earth bride.
Wake up way too early the next day, repeat.
*This is the non-sports schedule. When my kids are in their sports seasons, it’s chaos. Writing until 3:30, then it’s a crapshoot when we eat and get settled again. Normally around 8 or so before we’re getting home. Ack.

HE CAN’T GET HER OUT OF HIS HEAD
It’s lust at first sight when Brody Singer first lays eyes on Abby Dunn. The dark-haired beauty looks a lot like a woman he once knew, who died years ago. At first, Brody fears his attraction is a holdover from that secret crush, but Abby’s definitely different. She’s a lot shyer, a lot sexier, and despite her attempts to dissuade his interest, absolutely mesmerizing.
SHE CAN’T GET HIM OUT OF HER BOOKS
Abby isn’t having it. She’s still trying to put her last disastrous relationship behind her and overcome the flaws her ex wouldn’t let her forget. But somehow Brody isn’t getting the hint. It doesn’t help that when writing her steamy novels, she keeps casting Brody as the hero.
Brody is more than happy to serve as her muse and eager to help make sure her “research” is authentic. But when their research turns into something real…will she choose her own happily ever after?
