I'm deep into writing hockey romance #2 for Carina Press. Part of the plot of this book came about from a video I watched months ago. It features two of the Los Angeles Kings, Alec Martinez and the captain, Dustin Brown. They wanted to record a message that showed they support people who want to play the sport of hockey, regardless of their sexual orientation. I really liked and respected that they alone out of the entire Kings organization took the time to make a short (albeit stiff) video. It stuck with me until the time came to plot my second hockey book.
The You Can Play project strives to "promote respect for all athletes," a worthy goal, and one I hope will resonate in the book.
