Wonderful news! My Inspirational Romance, Reservation for Two, was picked up by Whiskey Creek Press. WooHoo! However, there seems to be another Ann Patrick writing for them—hence my alter ego. I was a little disappointed with the news that I’d have to come up with another pen name (my mom was the one who came up with Anne Patrick) but I’m quickly getting used to it. It’s sort of exciting really. And I suppose it’s probably a good idea since this novel is strictly an Inspirational romance. That way my readers won’t be disappointed when they pick it up expecting to find a story filled with murder and mayhem.
Reservation for Two is a story that is very close to my heart because the main character, Maggie O’Brien is a combination of some very special ladies in my life who was the inspiration behind the story. Have you ever had an idea grab hold of you to the point where you’re almost consumed by it? Well that’s what happened with this one. I came up with the idea last Thanksgiving and by New Years I had my first draft. It was the fastest I’d ever written anything.
