Switching gears this week. These are six sentences from my latest book, Against the Wind. Michael and Blair are trying to get to a shelter on a barrier island as a category 3 hurricane hits the coast. They've just spoken to a deputy sheriff who's directed them to a shelter. Since Blair new the man, she had to introduce Michael, but she did so as Kevin, a name Michael chose, since an all points bulletin has been issued for his arrest.
“That’s a horrible name for you.” She kept a firm grip on the wheel, her eyes on the road. “Michael is who you are. Michael and whatever the mysterious middle A stands for.”
He thought of all the intimacies they’d shared and of those things they hadn’t, like his middle name. Which made him wonder again what had possessed his very American mother to give him such an un–American name. One that, in its simplicity, made him Latin American to the core.
