Snippet Sunday

Welcome to Snippet Sunday. I'm so glad you came. Each week you can join me and a group of fabulous authors who can't wait to share their work with you. When you finish here, you can find more snippets at

My snippet is from a WIP titled Fortuna. In this excerpt, my hero and heroine have gone to a church to attend a dinner. Unfortunately, one of Aimee's enemies is at the dinner too. They end up in a bean ball battle which I wish I had enough sentences to share with you.

From the corner of her eye, Aimee saw the priest hurrying their way. She fired one final bean ball which hit the blonde’s forehead with a beany thud.

Rocky grabbed her arm. “They’re circling the wagons. Let’s get out of here.”

Practically running, they made their escape from the church. Once they reached their vehicle, Rocky took the precaution of locking the doors. “I guess we can’t come back to this church either. Are we going to become atheists?”
            "Of course not!"
