Beyond the Book: The Captain and the Cheerleader
Last week we discussed cheerleading because my heroine was once a cheerleader. I intended to talk about football today because my hero was the captain of the football team when he was in high school. I guess, though, that most people have a good idea about the pros and cons of football so I thought we'd do something else. Today, I think I'll introduce you to both Kurt and Susan's families.
The English Family
Susan and her family originally lived in Arizona where her father coached high school football until he retired. After Susan visited Fairfield, she loved it so much she moved there and got a teaching job at Fairfield High. Her parents also moved to Fairfield a few years later.
Bill English, Susan's father, now works at Super Mart the local discount store. Marjorie, Susan's mother, is in charge of the bakery in Chef's Pantry, the largest grocery store in Fairfield. The whole community loves her delicious baked treats. Susan has one brother Tyler who is going to the local community college.
On the outside they look like a happy family, and they are, but Bill English has some deep rooted issues that Kurt and Susan's relationship will bring to light.
Kurt's family always lived in Fairfield. His father George owns a small grocery store near the high school, and his mother works at the local library. They're proud of Kurt who set a goal for himself and worked until he achieved it. They're also proud of the high school team's record. Kurt is a good coach.
Kurt has one sister, Sheila, who's eleven years younger than he is. Sheila is a handful at the best of times, but when she finds out about Kurt and Susan she rebels against her family and friends and is definitely hanging out with the wrong crowd.
Well? What do you think? I hope you like the sound of these two families. Trust me; sparks are gonna fly all which ways before the end of the book.
