In which I try not to be creepy.

Def Leppard!  The answer is Def Leppard.  :o)

So anyway.  The word count is coming along well, I've progressed about 1500 words this week.  My next challenge is to present Trixie's older brother Henry, who has been missing for four years.  He's a murder suspect, wanted by the police.  Trixie used to think he was innocent, but these days she's starting to see that there's more to her broken, messed-up family than meets the eye.

I have to figure out how to make him "hot," when Trixie certainly doesn't think so and I'm not supposed to think so, since he's like 21 years old and that would be a little creepy.  I don't know.  I'm new to this YA thing.  And to tell you the truth, lately I'm a little startled to find out that some of these really good-looking guys in the movies are barely grown up at all.  Hmmm.  Disconcerting.

Heck, 21 is of-age at least [g]
Def Leppard! [forehead slap] I should have known that!

Oops. Guess I was wrong ...

21 is the new 30. Don't trouble yourself over that ... how else do you think cougars get their reps, anyway???

You are allowed to concoct yum yums in your mind ... I'm pretty sure it's part of the literary license - isn't it? The only trick will be portraying it though the sister's eyes. Perhaps have her describe the reactions of others to him.

You know ... there are likely a whole lot of reasons why I am not writing a book ...
