Fav line!

This week we are talking about a favorite line from our own books. Nothing feels better than going back to read your own work and knowing that you totally nailed your characters personality with a few simple words.

My most recent book, TWISTED SISTERS (which comes out on 4/1) follows my heroine, Aspen Brooks, to college. If you read REVENGE OF THE HOMECOMING QUEEN, then you know Aspen is smart, beautiful, and a teensy bit full of herself. College is hard for Aspen because she goes from being at the top of her game as queen of the school to being a lowly frog. Another mystery is dropped in her lap so while she is busy investigating and trying to fit in with her sorority sisters, Rand gets a little crazy with his frat brothers. My favorite line is going to seem a little risque taken out of context, but here goes.

Aspen: "What Rand and I have totally transcends a thong and a pair of pasties."

I love this line because it's funny and it tells you a lot about Aspen. She is so strong in her sense of herself, and her relationship with Rand, that she isn't threatened by other girls. I hope you'll read Twisted Sisters and find your own favorite line!

Do you have a favorite line from a book?

Oh, Aspen. How I do love her. (And I swear, no one but you could get away with writing that line!) More Aspen! More Rand! I can't wait for TWISTED!!!

From my own unpublished (and unwritten) memoirs:
"Stacy, I'm falling for you like a blind roofer!"

BTW, my current read is "Dead Men Don't Lye" It's a soapmaker mystery.

I find her insanely hilarious. Not a book for teens but definitely for us ladies!
