Today I’m excited to welcome Jeanne Bannon to my blog for a guest post!

VPK PreOrder 7

My name is Jeanne Bannon. I’ve worked in the publishing industry as an editor for over twenty-five years and was first published as a teenager way back when. Time passed, I got married, had a family, and put writing on the back burner. Then, my muse came calling, well, screaming may be a better word and I picked up my trusty laptop (no more pen and paper) and began work on Invisible, my first full length novel, which was published in 2011.

My latest work, Lost and Found, is a sweet romance (not my usual fare). However, it was a lot of fun to write. I love animals, especially dogs, as was drawn to the kinda goofy but loveable character, Lexi and her French bulldog, Bardot.

For me, Lexi was real, like someone I knew well and what follows is a short interview with her. I hope you love her as much as I do.

 Interview with Lexi from “LOST and FOUND”

ME: Can you tell the readers a little bit about yourself?

LEXI: Sure! I’m thirty-something and I’m a high school English teacher. I love my job. The kids are great but more than anything, I love coming home to my sweet little girl, Bardot.

ME: From what I’ve heard, you haven’t always been a dog person. Was it love at first sight with Bardot or did it take some time for her to grow on you?

LEXI: Love at first sight? Um, no. My ex-boyfriend, who shall remained unnamed, bought her for me just before he dumped…ah, left me. I was in no shape to even take care of myself let alone an untrained puppy. I thought I was going to lose my mind! Every time I turned around, she was either chewing on the furniture or peeing on the rug. It definitely took time, but after a while, my sweet little girl became a comfort. She also brought Tommy into my life.

ME: Tommy, huh? How did she do that?

LEXI: After sulking and pretty much feeling sorry for myself for quite some time, I decided I needed to get out of the house and so I signed Bardot up for obedience training. Tommy and his dog, Gina, were in the class as well.

 

ME: I’ll ask the same question about Tommy. Was it love at first sight?

 

LEXI: Tommy certainly got my attention. I mean, he’s tall, and gorgeous with his dark hair, hazel eyes and dimples. But when I met him, I was messed up because of my recent breakup. I liked him but didn’t have the heart to get involved with another man so soon. I hate to say it but I kinda gave Tommy the cold shoulder in the beginning.

 

ME: What changed, if anything?

 

LEXI: Ha! So much happened in such a short amount of time. Things you couldn’t imagine. I think it’s best to read about it in Lost and Found. It’s all there, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

 

ME: Thanks for talking with me today Lexi. I appreciate your candour and the fact you made yourself available. I know our working relationship wasn’t the best at times. You can be a bit elusive, you do realize that?

 

LEXI: Yep. Some days I wasn’t in the mood to chat. Sorry about that.

 

ME: No problem. I wish you and Bardot all the best. We’ll have to leave it at that and let readers discover for themselves what happens between you and Tommy.

Can what was once lost be found again?

 

Lexi is so distraught after long-time boyfriend, Josh, dumps her she has to take a leave of absence from her job as an English teacher. Josh leaves behind the French bulldog he bought for her just before things fell apart. Lexi is not a dog person and contemplates giving the pup away. However, it’s all she has left of Josh and so she gives the little mischief-maker a little more time.

 

While at puppy obedience school, Lexi meets Tommy, a handsome, happy-go-lucky type she could easily give her heart to if only she was ready. Still pining over Josh, Lexi gives Tommy the brush off and they lose touch. As much as she doesn’t want to admit it, Lexi comes to realize that in the short time she and Tommy spent together, he’d left more of an impression on her heart than she cared to admit.

 

A winding road of unfortunate events brings Lexi and Tommy together again, but are they meant to be, or does fate have another plan?
