Hi friends, I’m Presley!
I want first to give a big shout out to Jencey for having me visit today and then I thought I’d talk to you about a question I get asked about all the time.
And that would be about my boyfriend, Cooper. Cooper Sands is his full name, just in case you haven’t read the books about all the fun escapades and sometimes harrowing dilemmas I find myself in.
People always wonder if he is as handsome, sweet, and kind as he’s portrayed. I have, to be honest and say yes. While that makes me a lucky girl he sure does make me look bad sometimes when I don’t listen to him and then find out, he was right all along. I just can’t help it. I hate being told what to do and even when I know I SHOULD listen to what he’s saying. I can’t always do it.
But, he puts up with my Starbucks and shopping habit, and he loves me. In fact, the other day he was in San Diego for a business meeting and shipped me home some of my favorite coffee that this coffee shop I just love carries, and you can’t get it here in Chicago or line. He’s like that. Thinking about me and the little things that make me happy.
He is the entire package, ladies. Katy, that’s my best friend from back home, tells me how lucky I am and I know it. But it didn’t start out that way. In fact, we had a bumpy road to get to the relationship we have now, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
You can find out the full scoop on how we met in Stilettos & Scoundrels.
I’m off to my midday Starbucks run but talk to you soon!
About the Author:
As a child Laina thought she would either be a truck driver (thanks to Jerry Reed in Smokey and the Bandit) or work at Taco Bell (her favorite restaurant as a child).
As she grew older she realized her talents lay in academics and business and for the last several years has been a business consultant and college professor where she uses the analytical side of her brain and not the side that makes up stories. Through all her career choices she has continued to have a passion for writing. Proud of her vast experiences in life from barrel racing to being on the dance team for a semi pro basketball team to being a mom of 2 amazing kids, she tells her family and friends that no one is safe from their escapades slipping in to her books. Taking the plunge to write books (cozy mysteries and chick lit) that she actually let people read in 2010, she has worked her way up to being a real author, having 5 fans (maybe 6 now). Her blog, Writing is a Lifestyle, was launched to share the daily fun in the life of a Real Housewife of the Midwest along with the musing of other fabulous ladies.
