In the summer of 2010, I went a little crazy and wrote three books for a brand new series from The Wild Rose Press called the Class of '85. Why, you might ask? Because the series title hooked me. Having graduated from college in 1984, I have some wonderful memories from the early 80’s. Great times spent with good friends.
June 18th through the 22nd, five books from this terrific, multi-author series are free, including the first one I wrote, Lonely Road To You. To celebrate, I'm taking a trip back to the past and reliving those years. Today, let's talk TV!
I’ll admit, I didn’t watch a lot of TV back then. But there were times when we ditched studying for some mindless relaxation. And I do mean mindless. This was the era of the nighttime soaps. Dallas and Dynasty topped the ratings charts. I wasn’t a fan, but there were some entertaining and innovative sitcoms I enjoyed. The Cosby Show was a hit. And what about a show that took place in a bar? Cheers took the sitcom away from family values and gave us something completely different. Then there was Magnum PI—Tom Selleck in a Ferrari—what more is there to say. LOL
My heroine in Lonely Road To You is a children’s book author and illustrator. She heads off on a cross-country road trip to her 25 year high school reunion. Instead, she finds adventure—and love—with an old classmate along the way.
