The Girl Next Door Heroine....


This year my daughter is a senior in high school. Which means I'm busy doing the senior stuff and thinking things senior mom's think. Like, this is the last time we'll play softball against this team. Who am I going to laugh with when she's gone to college next year? How did she get nominated most sarcastic in her senior class when I've taught her all of her life be nice. :) Actually, I know the answer to that one. She has her daddy's warped sense of humor. Which I love in him, and I love in her.

Today, I got the CD that has all of her senior pictures. I'm going through the pictures and deciding which one's to have printed off to send out in Christmas cards, to give to Grandparents for their fireplace mantels, and to stick in my wallet for a daily pick-me-up when she's living in a dorm somewhere next year.

As I was studying them, the romance author in me kicked in. I started thinking, she'd make the perfect girl-next-door model for the new adult genre books. Of course, I'm biased, and she did get nominated most sarcastic, so maybe it's just my hopeful thinking that she has the girl-next-door heroine look to her.

This is my baby.

My question to you - when you look at the covers of your favorite books, and they have real people, do you wonder who those people are? What they do when they are not posing for book covers?  My sassy romance book Dibs has some really great legs on the front cover. I'd like to know who those legs belong to and just who really is in those cowboy boots.

  2. She is a beauty and such a great mix of you and hubby. I agree she could be the girl next door. Enjoy this last year.

    I've always wondered about those legs on DIBS. It's a great cover and book!

  4. Your daughter is beautiful. I think you should use her as your next character. I love it when I can actually connect with the charters in the books that I read.

  7. She is very beautiful, Lisa. She deserves a cover and a character. Beautiful, smart, sarcastic - you can't go wrong with a heroine like that.

  9. Beautiful daughter, yes I always think who are those people on the cover books, and what they do for life. Don't worry Lisa, next year you will be thinking what is going to happen in the next year and so on...I went through that experience last year, and now my baby is in a college somewhere as you said already!
