So, there has been this story trapped in my head.

Yep, an author's mind never really turns off. This story has been invading my head for the last couple days, and is now finally taking shape.

 'Stupid Boy' coming Spring 2015

Growing up in a house full of boys is not the everyday norm for most girls. However, for Blair McPherson, it was all she had ever known. Losing her mother long before she could remember, was something that weighed heavily in her testosterone filled world.  What Blair lacked in femininity, she more then made of up for in other areas. She could throw a football better than some high school quarterbacks, change a tire in sixty-seconds flat, bait a hook, skin a deer, and throw a right hook that can knock a man to his knees.  Sure, she didn’t possess the qualities to become Miss America, but who really needed the ability to walk in heels anyway?

Life was simple in Blair’s world. Going to college was a natural progression, seeing that her two older brothers were already at New Haven State College playing football. 

But life after high school wasn’t what she thought it would be. Her tomboy ways and girl next door looks didn’t allow for making friends with the other girls on campus. Not to mention having some of your best friends be the most sought after meal tickets on campus, basically branded her as one of ‘those girls’ permanently.  Her once easy existence was now clouded with evil women, and men who just wanted in her pants to ‘seek revenge.’

She thought her life was hard with two brothers in high school, but college took it to a whole new level. There was no chance at finding love with her family on campus. Between her brothers and their friends, Blair was doomed to live a life of sweaty jockstraps, and being pegged the ‘little sister’. She was forever seen as being untouchable. That was until him.

Sometimes life throws a flag on the field, and you have to figure out what play to call next all on your own.
