Now, about book. A few years ago, when Trish was just starting out, she wrote a romance novel called “Send Me No Flowers.” She even had to use her maiden name, Trish Graves, on book’s cover because of some kind of contractual thing regarding her name with another publisher. Anyway, Trish starts writing this book, and lead male character happens to be a South Carolina sheriff who’s honest, good looking, and who has women falling all over him. She named this character Rob Townsend. And when Trish considered all of his qualities, she felt that there was only one true role model for Rob, only one living person out there who could fully capture his essence, and that was moi. Me. So book got written, and you can get on internet and probably find a copy out there somewhere if you look really, really hard. And if y’all still don’t want to believe me, just take a gander at dedication to book after you get your hands on one. Read it closely. Ahem. Case closed.
Y’all might wonder why I’m finally “outing” myself as male lead of a romance novel after this much time. Well, I’m doing it cause Trish has been a little under weather here lately, and sometimes I think you need to acknowledge dear friends who’ve been kind to you. And in this case one who’s always been kind to me. Odds are that she’ll probably get a look at this article, and I sincerely hope that she realizes just how special she is, and why I’ll always think so fondly of her. She’s a great writer, and an even classier person. I could go on and write even more about her, but I‘m scheduled for some plastic surgery in just a couple of days, so I’ve gotta start packing - after all, one never knows when they might meet editor of Playgirl Magazine somewhere out there in literary world...
