I’m not a fitness nut. I run and exercise so that I can fit into the bathing suits that I don every day since moving to a beach community. I have also come to realize that daily sweat-inducing activity improves my mood, which is one of the reasons that the main character in Big Bad Easy (releasing on Amazon.com this Friday, August 9th from The Wild Rose Press) exercises all the time. Zara doesn’t just exercise to look good, she is also exorcising some demons that arose during her service in Iraq. From all the exercise, Zara is strong physically and mentally. It’s one of the reasons that the NOPD officer finds her so attractive, and, well, frustrating.
