I was. One of my earliest memories is of an apple tree I tried climbing. At the age of two. And thanks to a boost from my dad, I made it into those branches covered with spring blossoms.
My poor mom. Beds were for cushioning dive rolls, shelves for climbing to the top so I could leap off, clotheslines for hand-over-hand travel. I always craved a physical challenge and woe to the boy who suggested he could beat me at it.
As the years passed, my wild tendencies got tempered by gymnastics and dance and a variety of sports activities. And trees became a place where I could hide with a good book.
My romance novel Tomboy Bride is about what happens when a tomboy grows up.Can she change her image? And what about her relationship with her mother?
Tomboy Bride is on sale for 99¢ this week.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! ~ With a special smile for all those mothers that had to raise a tomboy child. 🙂
