Diane, aka RJ
Thank you to Prism for hosting me today! Hugs, RJ XXX
I signed a cheque (check) for my son’s school with my author name. I happily signed away and went to put the cheque in an envelope and it was only when I went to seal the damn thing that I realized what I had done.
Fast forward to coffee, and someone called me Diane (my real name) and I was like… who are they talking to?
I think I have become RJ Scott. I think so much of my life is wrapped up in writing, and so much of my writing is wrapped up with real life that I sometimes feel more like RJ than Di. I answer to RJ, I sign things as RJ, I talk on line as RJ. And yes, I even sign a cheque to the school.
Authors have you become your alter ego? Readers, do you enjoy seeing parts of an author’s real life?
He scooted up so he was sitting on the pillows and watched, amused at the fact that the husband and wife team he had joined in with last night were getting hot and heavy right in front of him. She held out her hand, Anna or something. Viktor waved her away, and dismissing the need for a shower, he dressed and left the room.
“See you around, soldier!” the husband, Mark, shouted after him as he left the suburban middle-class home in Suffolk, Virginia.
“Sailor,” Viktor muttered. Then he pulled the front door shut and climbed into his Tahoe. The couple hadn’t been all that bright, but the husband was built just right for Viktor to get a hold of. Clearly they didn’t understand Viktor’s explanation of who he was when he was attempting to get the three-way. Typical.
He dialed his sister’s phone, and she picked up almost immediately.
“Viktor,” she stammered. Instantly Viktor was on high alert. He forced aside all possible worries and simply listened. “Ben had an accident, he’s in the hospital.”
“What happened? A car?”
“No. He was out on the mountain, found this morning. He’s unconscious, and he has a broken ankle, hypothermia, and a head injury.” She caught a sob. “What do I do? Why would he be out there?”
Viktor turned the key in the ignition and said nothing. On the mountain? That didn’t make sense.
“I’ll be there as soon as I can,” he said firmly. “Call me if anything changes.”
He didn’t want details. He just needed to get there.
Prism recently reviewed A Reason to Stay. You can find the review here.
Sometimes the wars you need to fight are the ones you left at home…
When SEAL, Viktor Zavodny, left small town America for the Navy he made sure he never had a reason to return for anything other than visiting family. He wanted to see the world and fight for his country and nothing, or no one, was getting in his way. He fights hard, and plays harder, and a succession of men and women share his bed. But a phone call from his sister has him using his thirty day down time to go home instead of enjoying his usual thirty nights of random sex and sleep. What he finds is a mystery on the Green Mountains and the only man attempting to make sense of seemingly unrelated deaths. His childhood friend and first love… Lieutenant Aiden Coleman, Sheriff. There were reasons Viktor left his home. Not least Aiden Coleman with his small town innocence and his dreams of forever. Now Adam and Viktor need to work together to save lives and prove there is a hero in all of us. When it’s done, if they make it out alive, can Aiden persuade Viktor that he has a reason to stay? Maybe forever?
