Five Sentence Sunday

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves of where we started and the moves that shaped our careers. Paradise 21 was the book that landed me my awesome agent and a great publisher. It was the fourth book I wrote, and the one I wrote just for fun without any publisher or agent in mind. To tell you the truth, I'd given up playing the game and wanted to write just for me. The words came from nothing- no plan or reason, and an entire series of four books was born. I love this series. It will always have a special place in my heart.

Now for the 5 sentences:

Aries sped through space in her escape pod as if she fled the event horizon of a dying star. The controls blinked warnings around her, but she ignored them, pressing the touchscreen to fire the engines to full capacity.
Let’s see how fast this antique can go.
Her sweaty palms slipped on the cold metal as she clutched the restraining bar across her seat. Freedom intoxicated her, coursing through her veins like she drank liquid fire.

Very exciting! How great that is was the book you wrote just to write that got you noticed.
