In her pre-kids life, Amy Knupp worked for two major metropolitan newspapers. Seven years in the business was enough to convince her that the corporate world wasn’t her happy place, so when her first son was born, she was lucky enough to quit her job and stay home with him.
While diapers and daily use of reverse psychology were challenging, Amy’s imagination wandered. Two months after her second son was born, a good friend dared her to begin pursuing a lifelong dream of becoming a published author. Four years later, Amy achieved her goal, selling a manuscript to Superromance.
You can find her online at her website or the Writeminded Blog.
The Boy Next Door
Lone Oak, Kansas-a place where old animosities never died…
In Lone Oak, Rundles and Salingers don’t mix. Not since the tragic accident involving Zach Rundle’s brother and Lindsey Salinger’s mother. But when the well-being of Zach’s five-year-old nephew is at stake, Zach and Lindsey are unwillingly dragged together again.
At first, Zach thinks the social worker is stirring up the old feud. But once he’s back he realizes that’s the last thing on her mind. Before long, the attraction they’d felt twelve years ago returns, too.
Could a child’s needs bring them together? More important-would it help keep them together?
