She didn’t tell me much about him other than that he’s a biker, a free-lance photographer and fantastic painter… and of course his name. George Guignet, known to his friends as Miserable George. I found out later that he’s done free-lance work for around 15 different publications, including working with the National Geographic.
A free-lance photographer who was also a biker… hmmm… interesting. I sent him a friend invite and a message. Surprisingly he responded back and asked me what my books were about and what I was looking for. I wondered if he would really take my request seriously… I mean really… a bad boy and a romance author working together on a project. A couple of weeks later he emailed me the pictures of the bike that grace the covers of the books in this series.
I was completely shocked and found it hard to believe that someone out there, that I’d never met before, ‘got’ me on such an artistic level. To say the rest is history doesn’t do our friendship justice. These days he is forever sending me pictures of not just bikes, but nature, people and interesting things that make life great.
Nothing inspires story ideas in me like photographs and artwork and he is an amazingly talented man. To give you an idea, he is very much like Chuck from this series. The creepy part was that I had Chuck’s book written before I ever sent George the first message. Fate? Maybe… Regardless, I owe George a huge thanks and a hug that I plan to deliver in person… soon.
