When Hunter Brannigan loses his father and is sent a map, he doesn’t know what to think. Is it a joke? Was the old man going senile at the end? The attorney sending the map assures him the piece of paper was definitely from his father and he must follow the clues to find himself.

Hunter has been running from anything even remotely resembling responsibility for a very long time. He’s a world renowned Photo Journalist, traveling the seven continents in pursuit of the next great shot. He’s been in the heart of the trauma during war time, natural disasters, and life-altering moments, always on the other side of the lens, never getting emotionally involved. His father’s last wish for him is to put himself within the pictures he’s famous for.

Deciding to humor his father’s last request, he stumbles upon Rebekah Kingsley III, an uptight History Professor who desperately needs to let her hair down. Though he has his doubts she can get dirty long enough to help him, something about her won’t let him walk so easily this time. Will she be enough to make him settle down, or will he leave her with nothing but a picture of what could have been.

Radio interview…hilarious!

For those who missed my radio spot here it is. . .it gets pretty funny half-way through when it all goes south. . .lol! Wait until I mention Kathleen Brooks. The show has technical difficulties that lead to all out mayhem and laughter.

My street team dropped by with kind words and to taunt me. You get to hear my brother call in wondering if he needs to save me.

Follow this link and then click the little symbol I highlighted below. My podcast comes up. First you hear music, but hang on 🙂 It’s all there. Once the phone starts calling me back you’ll hear me go from nervously laughing to actually freaked out. Hopefully you find that as amusing as I do.
