Happy Sunday! I’ve been away from Six Sentence Sunday for a little while. Check out the link for other wonderful writers…
This is from my upcoming January release, Gambling On a Secret (for those who have followed me for a while, you know it as “Butterfly”).
One of my favorite unromantic relationships to write about is the relationship between siblings. And I won’t lie, it’s probably because my brother, who was younger than me by six years, and I were not close. He passed away last fall, rather tragically in a house fire, and I will always wish we could have been closer and could have had the kind of relationship I enjoy writing about.
The Colton Gamblers, of which Gambling On a Secret is book 1, have several siblings who star in this family saga type of series. Here’s a snippet from the end of Chapter 6, and is between the hero, Dylan Quinn and his younger sister Tracy…
The unfamiliar urge to smile at her exasperation tugged at his lips. Tracy peered at him for a moment before she crossed the small space and wrapped her arms around his neck, hugging him close.
He’d been a bastard lately, and for the first time in months, he was sober long enough to realize it. Holding her close, he spoke into her long brown hair. “You be careful, sis.”
What kind of relationships, other than the romantic one, do you like to read/write about?
