A quick peek at Carrie Hanson, Heroine of my next book Worst Week Ever



Investigator Peep's Report on Carrie Hanson:



4'6” 70 pounds. (maybe)

Will blow away in a stiff wind.

Adorable-you’ll want to put her in your pocket and take her home.

As a teen suffered from low self-esteem due to living in the shadow of her much taller twin sister.

Despite her tiny size, she’s not a push over.

Hasn’t had a date in 2 years which is oddly the exact amount of time she’s worked as Trent Lancaster’s Executive Assistant.

Hobbies: none

Activities in spare time: none

Pets: Self-maintaining fish in pond. They evidently all have names.

Friends: None before this week.

To all appearances Carrie works, commutes and sleeps.

Neighbors say she leaves before sunrise and returns in the dark, so they rarely see her.

She can solve any problem, has the patience of a saint, and the determination of a pitbull

And then comes her return from Taiwan and her Worst Week Ever and things go bad.

5
Times arrested or nearly arrested.

4
Times she nearly dies

3
Groups she pisses off:
FBI, NYC police & Russian Mafia

2
Times that she gets fired

1
Distribution of Narcotic Turtles

It's a very busy week for her.

She discovers she has a finite limit to how many bad things can happen before she gives up.

COMING IN JULY 2013

    1. Well she survives it, but just barely. And the week after looks to be much better. (that would be in book two.)

      With so much happening, book one is only on hellish week long.

  5. Love the report and the 5,4,3,2,1 thing. Very creative. I'm very curious about narcotic turtles. (That's something I never imagined saying.) Can't wait to read the book to find out!

    1. Yes indeed. Those put a great deal of people's lives at risk.

  7. The path to true love never runs smooth, so why shouldn't it take 3 books! Sounds like another winner (no facial tattoos at least this time)

    1. Exactly! HEA's are hard, especially when she first meets and falls in love with a terrible candidate. But that's pretty normal. Only a lucky few find the right guy right off. The rest of us just get smarter (hopefully) as we go.

    1. 7 days of one disaster after another. Carrie concludes she's cursed and ends up praying to God in a tiny cabinet.
