Spinning

Dylan Hunter has it made. At 29, he has great friends, a huge job, all the women he can handle, and no commitments. A public relations executive, Dylan has dashed up the ladder of success by mastering the art of the spin – bending the truth to his and his clients’ needs. But when a former lover steps back into his life with a three-year-old girl by her side (no, she’s not his), Dylan suddenly finds himself in a place he can’t spin himself out of. And when Dylan unexpectedly becomes the child’s sole guardian, he finds himself to be like a circus performer trying to keep all of his spinning plates from crashing to the ground. In what seems like a blink of the eye, Dylan Hunter’s life has changed completely…whether he’s ready for it or not.

 

Spinning gave me a chance to write about something I've always wanted to address: the moment when you realize that you're responsible for more than simply your own life. As with everything I write, I tried to look at this from a distinctive angle. The kid who changes everything for Dylan is not his, but under the circumstances, that doesn't make his sense of responsibility any less. I had an especially good time creating the little girl Spring. I find that my kid characters are always among my favorite. Maybe someday I'll bring them all together in one story....
