Blonde Demoliton by Chris Redding
My latest book soon to be out is Blonde Demoltion.
Here’s the blurb:
You just can't hide from the past...
Mallory Sage lives in a small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past life as an agent for Homeland Security.
Former partner and lover, Trey McCrane, comes back into Mallory's life. He believes they made a great team once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don't have much choice. Paul Stanley, a twisted killer and their old nemesis, is back.
Framed for a bombing and drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running out.
I think of all the books I’ve written this has the most interesting back story.
It’s actually two back stories come together.
- Robert Crais wrote a book titled Demolition Angel. I loved that title so much that I didn’t even read the back cover copy before I bought it. So I thought about what book I would write with that title. I called it Blonde Demolition instead.
- My husband has been a volunteer firefighter for more than 30 years. For about 20 of those years his fire company ran a fair to raise money. At the fair, the guys who ran the beer tent were known as the beer gods. I was one of the few females actually allowed to pour beer. They would often bug me about when I would write a book about them. This is what inspired me to begin Blonde Demolition where I did, in the beer tent of a firemen’s fair.
I think it’s a good story (or two).
Thanks for letting me share it with you.
