Here's a blurb and excerpt for you.
After an accident destroys his pro-football career, Matt McCallum struggles to find a new dream for his life. Nothing engages him until he meets Violet Emerson who has big dreams of her own. Together they find a common dream for their lives, but will a loose end from Matt’s past destroy their future before it even begins?
Excerpt: Sometimes one family member's tragedy can hurt an entire family. In this excerpt, you can see how my accident affected my mother.
Marilyn laughed when she saw Matt’s stained shirt. “What happened to you?”
“Bakery accident.” Matt set the cake on the table, relieved to have it safely delivered.
“Ha! You dropped my cake, didn’t you?” Chris snickered as he inspected the wrapped packages stacked on the kitchen table.
“No, I didn’t. The girl who got it out of the refrigerator tripped and fell against me.”
“She just wanted to feel your muscular chest,” Chris teased. “How old is she, Matt?”
“Around my age.”
Matt’s arm shot out, and he grabbed Chris. The two of them began a mild scuffle that ended with Marilyn’s sharp reprimand.
“Stop it this instant! Chris, you could hurt him.”
Animation drained from Matt’s face as he released his hold on his brother. “I’m sorry I scared you, Mother.”
Chris’s face turned a fiery shade of red. “Are you going to treat him like an invalid forever? He isn’t going to break!”
He spun on his heel and rushed from the room leaving Marilyn and Matt staring at each other in an uncomfortable silence.
Matt took a tight rein on his emotions and changed the subject. He plain didn’t want to get into it. “Is it okay if I invited somebody to the party?”
“Of course,” Marilyn answered, her tone far too bright and cheerful. “Any friend of yours is welcome.”
“I’d better go change.”
Matt looked back over his shoulder as he left the kitchen and saw his mother sitting at the table with her head in her hands.
