What girl does not love shoes? I ask you. Me, for example, I have tons of shoes. And lately I’ve been buying up all the boots, booties I can find. I love shoes of all kinds. For instance, I just bought the cutest pair of booties from Nine West. Of course, mine don’t have the tassel.
I also picked up a pair of gladiator sandals. They’ve been big the last couple of years, and it looks as if this year will not be any different. (Also, Nine West.)
There are all kinds of goofy shoes, and truly fabulous shoes. Here are some really great shoes, though they have a very specific purpose, as you can see. My daughter was the genius behind this little gift (as in giving). They were perfect this winter when my critique group went to the Embassy Suites in Tulsa for a little writing pow-wow.
Some shoes I’ve acquired were not necessarily meant for me. Take these size 14’s of Eric Maynor’s. An NBA ex Oklahoma City Thunder player. Yes, you read that right: size 14!!!
Oh, here’s Eric and I: He’s cute, isn’t he? Alas, the shoes are unsigned, and believe me, I tried for a couple of years to no avail. Guess you have to be some adorable little kid, age 5 or so....
Speaking of Thunder: This guy was in the bar, and I don’t know what he was thinking. Yes, I took the picture to totally make fun of some guy wearing purple shoes. I’m not that nice. (At least I didn’t show his face.)
I just love shoes. So when I was writing my Bloomington Series, it turns out that Lorianne loves shoes too! In fact, she is notorious for spending loads of money she does not have on shoes when she is really upset. Take these fuschia Mary Jane platforms. She has them in a couple of colors. And when she is angry? Well, watch out. You never know what might come flying at you.
Genna Lyndsey is not a people person. A short, too-skinny, wild haired waif, with crazy hair and sturdy nerdy glasses who lives through books. So it’s lucky she and her best friend own their own bookstore. Her college days taught her that dating was too unreliable to depend on others. It was then that she started resorting to obscure quotes to shield herself from others who ventured too close.
Rick Johnson, Fraud Insurance Claims Investigator, is assigned to look into an unusual number of claims filed by Genna Lyndsey. He suspects Genna of sabotaging her own property for insurance money. His investigation uncovers an adorable introvert determined to keep everyone at bay, while someone else resolves to put her out of business—no matter how great the risk.
