There are times when you love something and want it more than one of the beagle’s margaritas, and it slips through your fingers. I hate those times, and I have to say I’m very lucky to experience that sense of loss infrequently. But none hurt more than when I thought I lost author/cop Chris Baughman.
I. Loved. This. Story.
You may have read my post back in January where I first talked about this incredible man and his unique gifts of empathy for a forgotten element of society – hookers. As I said in my previous post, people think prostitution is a victimless crime. Well, Chris’ new book shows this is far from the truth, and the lengths he goes to to save these women are nothing short of intoxicating.
I can’t express loudly enough my happy-happy joy-joy that this lovely, gifted, amazing man, through his equally lovely agent, Verna Dreisbach, have returned to the Behler corral and signed with us. I love all my authors to bits and pieces because their talent brings tears to my eyes. Adding Chris to this lineup has me reaching for the Kleenex. And you will too when you read his gut-wrenching book – due out in 2011 – Anomaly.
Welcome to the fam, Chris. It’s an incredible honor.
