Would it be exciting to travel to exotic places, meet a man who makes your heart summersault, and become a person you admire? Eleanor (Nora) Clark realizes the key to an interesting life is eluding her. Never leaving the small Pennsylvania town she grew up in, living in a house her fiancé bought his ex-girlfriend, and spending weekends helping in the family business. She realizes life is passing her by as her twenty-ninth birthday looms on the horizon. Why hasn’t she taken any gutsy chances in life?
On a whim, she applies to become a flight attendant. Suddenly, she is jetting off to London, Rome, and St. Petersburg where she finds herself romantically entangled with three very different suitors. Eleanor’s new life exceeds all her wildest dreams.
To find fulfillment, Eleanor must discover success, confidence, friendship, and love. As her daydreams become reality, the choices she makes both build and break her heart. But her last choice decides it all.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Flying Backwards was inspired from my earlier years as a flight attendant working for US Airways. So my main character is a flight attendant. For me, travel and romance go hand-in-hand. After writing this book, it inspired me to start the Landing in Love series. The general idea of the Landing in Love series is the protagonist is associated in some way with aviation (flight attendants, helicopter pilots, floatplane pilots, etc.) who all find love in various small, New England towns. Each of the Landing in Love stories are stand-alones.
