A nice thing about reading is the oppportunity to experience many of life's adventures without pain and blood, or getting off the couch.
Best opening lines:

Chaos at High Altitude
The idea for this novella came to me while I was stopped at a red light and reached for a mint from the Altoids tin I kept in my car. By the time the light changed and I crossed through the intersection, two characters had popped into my mind and a story started forming. In my mind's eye, I saw a very expensive private jet with a very handsome man at the controls. By the time I got home, a working title, "Altoids at High Altitude" was firmly planted in my mind. The result is this romantic comedy set in St. Paul about a stressed out project manager with an inner voice that gets her into trouble. She meets the handsome IT contractor who intends to de-stress her. Their gray cube wall isn't the only thing that separates them.
