HUMP DAY! Today I have Angela Drake visiting my blog. She shares a bit about meeting someone for the first time in 25 years, and and excerpt from her book, Somewhere Down The Line. Let's see what she has to say.
Somewhere Down the Line came from an experience I had a couple of years ago. I was about to see someone for the first time in 25 years. I sat in his driveway, gripping the steering wheel thinking, what am I supposed to say? How am I supposed to act? How will he react? This was not a relationship reunion, we’d always been nothing more than two people meeting up at his shows but on the drive home later that ‘what if’ question popped into my head. What if my heroine were reuniting with someone for the first time after a long period apart? What if they had feelings for one another they never acted on before? When a fan crushes on an artist, don’t they often think what it would be like to be with them – even married to them?
And so it ended up in your book!
It all began twenty-five years ago on the road: a charming crooner with a boyish grin fronting an up-and-coming Country/Western band, an entertainment journalist with everything to prove, and a love that could never be. A love that was wrong.
Things have changed. Trey Morison and Alana Cozins are finally free to act on their desires, but is it really possible after all this time? From the Abilene Fairgrounds to a storm-swept beach on Galveston Island, from a reunion of friends to a fast-and-furious realization of their passion, Trey and Alana will test the boundaries of what they think they know—and what they know they want. They’ll find a renewed career, a deeper understanding of themselves, the past and each other. And it all begins with a hit song that’s a heartfelt prayer that unwavering love might finally be rewarded… SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE
If she could just hold the camera steady, she’d get the pictures she needed, pack up her stuff and head back to Austin. There she could hide her feelings in the attic of her suburban house and forget she ever wanted to know what it would be like to see Trey again.
He interrupted. “Before you do that, may I ask you a question?”
“Okay.” But she was afraid of what he wanted to ask, was unsure she wanted answers to any of the questions flooding her own mind.
‘Have you ever thought about the last time we saw each other?” His gaze dared her to deny his question. “Tell me you don’t remember anything special about that night in Abilene and I’ll pretend I never asked. But I remember how you blushed when I sang ‘Earth Angel’ and how the last thing I wanted to use was my thumb to clean that dab of mustard off the corner of your mouth. I remember how tortured I felt at having to let you go, how trapped I was by responsibility and unable to do anything about it. I’ve carried those memories with me, Ali. So please tell me your coming here today isn’t just about an interview.”

That 'what if' question is a wonderful thing to ask when it comes to our stories and it sounds like your answers paid off.
