Welcome...... Nancy Famolari
I am pleased to introduce talented Author Nancy Famolari, who's promoting her latest creation, Summer's Story, coming soon to Red Rose Publishing.
Here's what Nancy had to say during her visit to the Press Box:
Football Romance: Can you tell us a little about yourself?
NF: I live in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania with my husband, five horses, two dogs and five white cats. My favorite hobby is trail riding. My horse, Ambrosa de la Pluma is a registered Paso Fino. The breed came to the new world from Spain. Paso Finos have a unique four beat gait that is very smooth. They can go for hours on the trail. They are smart and friendly and make wonderful companions. My husband and I try to ride at least four times a week. We feel so luck to live in an area with lots of space for riding.
Football Romance: What inspired you to write this story?
NF: Summer's Story takes place in the fast paced world of harness racing. For fourteen years, my husband and I had a small Standardbred breeding farm in New Jersey. We raised and raced these marvelous horses. Harness racing is very exciting. There are many heart warming stories about an owner or trainer believing in their horse and against the odds getting the horse to win a big race. This is what happens in Summer's Story. There are also people who take advantage of both horses and people for personal gain, not caring the least about how the horse is affected. I believed these elements would make a good novel. I hope people agree.
Football Romance.: Do you have a favorite character?
NF: Summer Langston is my favorite character. She's a very determined lady who cares about her horse, Meadow, and overcomes severe personal and professional obstacles to get her horse to the winner's circle. In the process, she learns something about herself and how to give and receive love. I like the fact that she's gutsy and doesn't give up easily.
Football Romance: Tell us a little about your writing schedule.
NF: I try to write everyday for two hours. Obviously this isn't easy with farm chores and other activities. During Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) I can almost always keep to the schedule because the incentive is to have a novel at the end of the month. I find the first draft fun and relatively easy to do. Editing is the part that gives me trouble. Summer's Story which will soon be available from Red Rose Publishing, I was extremely lucky in my editor. She made useful comments pointing out where I wasn't make my characters come across and, of course, how to improve my writing skills.
Football Romance: What are your future writing plans?
NF: I have a second book under contract to Red Rose Publishing. This novel is a murder mystery, Murder in Montbleu. The setting is a small town in Pennsylvania similar to the one I live in. I've become very friendly with the characters in this novel and have two other novels that use the same setting, Lake House and Buttermilk Falls Murder. I'm still in the process of editing them, but hope to find a home for them.
Let's thank for Nancy Famolari for visiting Sports Romance.
The book can be purchased at http://www.redrosepublishing.com/.

Here's an unedited excerpt of How to Cure A Cajun Cold:
A tall, light-skinned beauty entered the hall and immediately caught Arnaz’s attention.
His world was put on hold. She put him into a Vampire-like trance with the dark blue jean shorts. Arnaz got so tangled up in the female med student that he couldn’t write his name on the tag. Louis quickly took over, inserting his name on the tag. “I see someone has been hit by the love bug,’’ he said.
“That’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen,’’ Arnaz said. “I’m in love.’’
Arnaz walked to the other side of the room to meet this gorgeous Amazon. “If I’m not back in 20 minutes, don’t come looking for me,’’ he said.
She sat in the middle rows, where Arnaz approached her. “Excuse me; I didn’t quite get your name,’’ he said.
The attractive woman responded with a sharp tongue: “You must be the brain surgeon in the group. You don’t have my name because I haven’t told you.’’
He got right to the point: “What’s your problem?’’
She rose from the seat and towered over him: “Do it look like I have a damn problem?’’
She stood 6-foot, two inches taller than him. A stunned Arnaz had no idea she was that tall. He was caught up in her pretty face, ignoring everything else. She questioned his immediate silence: “What’s wrong, cat got your tongue?’’
Under normal conditions, Arnaz would have walked away and tried to pick up other girls.
Somehow, this girl had gotten to him. He couldn’t split and go one-and-out like a team in the NCAA Basketball Tournament. “Are you feeling insecure about being tall?’’ he asked.
“Oh great, I get to meet Dr. Spock on this trip,’’ she said sarcastically. “I didn’t know this was a psychiatrist’s convention; I’m in the wrong place.’’
She couldn’t shake him. He stood right there, battling her wit for wit. “I’m not leaving until I get your name,’’ he said.
The head of the HCBU’s pre-med institute interrupted them, ordering everyone to line up alphabetically. A smitten Arnaz raced to the front, but left a warning: “I’ll be back, count on it.’’


I've taken a break from writing the Cotton series to write the following short for Red Rose Publishing called How to Cure a Cajun Cold. The small story will be released by Red Rose Publishing in July, as part of its First Anniversary celebration. I'm honored to be a part of it. Writing something other than sports romance, I feel like action star like Dwayne ''The Rock'' Johnson playing a dramatic role.

I was in Ruby Tuesday's the other day. While waiting for the food to come out, I began writing notes on a napkin. By the time I left, I had already written a chapter to my latest creation. Is it just me or do your ideas come from anywhere?
