My Monday muse is this man, Pedro Perestello who’s won the hearts of all of us muses.
I really want to write him in a sweet story, perhaps a May/December romance with a hot older man or woman while Michael wants him as either a Spanish cowboy and/or Mexican Mobster looking for acceptance.
I guess eventually we’ll both get the story we want!

Take a look at my books from these link and pick one or all four if you’d like!
I love this pic. I think it came from FB and the minute I saw it I had to grab it.
Of course it isn’t mine but it looked like a protagonist I wanted to write in the not so distant future.
A sexy woman with a lot on her mind.
What’s she thinking or who is she thinking of?
Someone who broke her heart and left her alone? Perhaps some deep issues that have affected her.
Lots of stories could come from this one pic.
Amazing who the brain works!
I’m about to start edits on this story so we can release it by the end of the month. It’s my second M/F and I’m pretty stoked about the story.
Shar and I feel it’s important to write about women in our age group. Late 30-40 range who might’ve not found their Prince Charming on a white horse as of yet. So, we created a character, Evie Langston who’s intrigued by a rock star she’s taken pictures. She doesn’t think he knows she exists but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Here’s a temp blurb and small excerpt from One Shot!
Blurb: Evie Langston has taken some great shots of rock stars in her life and none has intrigued her like the picture she took of star guitarist Del Vanz of the heavy metal band, Blood Reign. Evie is more than interested in finding out more about the mystery man behind the makeup but can’t get over being intimidated and afraid of rejection.
Del Vanz, Blood Reign’s head axeman, never saw such a beautiful lady in the pit taking pictures of him and he wants to know more. However, he’s not sure how she’d accept his career choice. If so, would she be interested in the man behind the white paint?
“Evie…Evie…snap out of it, will ya?” Macy snapped her fingers in front of Evie’s face while they lunched at their favorite restaurant in Wicker Park. “Look girl, you’re gonna have to do something about that obsession you got with guitar boy or let go. Geez, you been like a fucking zombie the last couple of weeks.”
Evie shook her head and adjusted her black rimmed glasses. “I know…I−” She bit her lip and hesitated. “I dunno what to do, Mace. What if he’s got a girlfriend, or he may be gay…”
“I seriously doubt that last one.” Macy stabbed her steak and cut a piece off the side. “You’ll never find out unless you try, Evie. Sitting here thinking about the picture or staring him down won’t do you a bit of good.” Macy placed the meat between her lips.
“Yeah, I know…damnit!” Evie clenched her fist tightly and pushed her plate away.
“Girl you got it bad. Real bad when you’re not touching food from Alberta’s.” Macy finished her meal and wiped her mouth with the cloth napkin on her lap. She leaned into her friend and gripped her shoulder. “Look babe, I’ve never known you to be so scared to go after what you want. Why now, toots? Why you clamming up for this guy.”
“Because,” Evie began and crossed her arms over her chest. Her shoulders tensed. “This isn’t just any man. This is Del Vanz from Blood Reign.”
“He’s a man, not a god,” Macy countered.
“I know but…geez, Mace, I don’t know. I just don’t feel like being rejected again. You remember the last time I tried to date someone in the music scene and how he turned out to be such a dick.”
“Yeah, yeah. Tommy from Distillery. I know.” Macy rolled her eyes and clicked her teeth. “What a fucking asshole.”
“Total ass,” she agreed. “I’m tired of giving my heart out to guys and getting little or nothing in return. I’m too old for this crap, Mace. I wanna get settled, have babies−…”
“Now?” Macy’s eyes widened in shock. “I mean, don’t ya think we’re a little too old for kids now, honey?”
“I want at least one by somebody. You found Prince Charming, why can’t I?”
“Yeah well…” Macy grinned to herself and patted Evie’s shoulder. “That was luck, Evie. I wasn’t even looking and well, he just kind of popped up. And besides that, we’re okay with the fact we didn’t have kids. More time for us.”
“Why hasn’t mine just kind of popped up?” Evie drew up her lips.
“Dunno, sweets. You’re attractive, funny, you’re creative. I mean, I been praying to the deities for ya, Evie but they aren’t listening.”
“Obviously.” Evie laid back in her chair. “There’s gotta be someone out there for me…”
Macy interrupted. “And perhaps it’s Del but the only way you’ll find out is by trying. I swear girl, you’re gonna run yourself crazy, thinking about him and not doing anything about it.”
“No buts, girl. You took the shot for the concert in Indianapolis and now his band is coming back for three shows in Chicago after playing this fucked up tour schedule.”
“Yeah…” Evie glanced away from her friend a moment and thought back to that glorious night in Indianapolis at the Metal55 venue. Blood Reign, Sacred Heart, and Dying Wish were playing there for a tribute show and Evie had full access to shoot for the night.
My muse today is model Michael Randon
He’s my character for the book in the N’awlins Exotica series. Shar and I just created him yesterday
Bio: CSI Waylon Mooney is an open minded redneck with heart. He’s a nerd but hot as hell with a quirky sense of humor and weird vibe. He listens to old country music, can’t dance but knows how to have a good time
These are the pictures we saw when we thought about the hot nerdy, CSI at NOPD
