A stubborn boyfriend with the sniffles is the last thing Amanda needs in her apartment during THIS work crisis, but how can she get clueless Jason to leave without just ending their relationship?

Fortunately, her divorced girlfriend hurriedly develops the devious scare-cure. Amanda throws everything at Jason that Christine can dream up and that apartment becomes the least hospitable place a man could possibly imagine. Extensive potpourri and a glued-down toilet seat are just the beginning.

But how serious are the privacy risks as Christine blogs about her scare-cure? Can this crazy scheme really get Jason out of Amanda's hair at home before she loses her mind at work?

Will Amanda's relationship even survive the kooky cure of Jason's man-cold?

About the Author

My newest novel is Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold, a screwball comedy released by Dingbat Publishing in December 2013. My published novels (with Astraea Press) are: Called to Arms Again (May 2013), Rescued By That New Guy in Town (Oct. 2012), and The Overnighter's Secrets (May 2012). Also released through AP is a short novella, Echo Taps (June, 2013). Romantic comedy and romantic suspense are among eight completed novel manuscripts.

I'm co-author of two non-fiction monographs (about librarianship) with a royalty publisher, plus a signed chapter in another book and a signed article in a specialty encyclopedia. I've also published articles, book reviews, and over 120 poems; my writing has won nearly 40 awards, including several in national contests. As a newspaper photo-journalist, I published about 150 bylined newspaper articles, and some 100 bylined photos.

I worked nearly 30 years in the field of librarianship. I'm a decorated veteran of U.S. Air Force (including a remote tour of duty in the Arctic, at Thule AB in N.W. Greenland).

I'm the married parent of two and grandparent of six.
