Welcome Guest Author - Amber Polo

I'd like to welcome the author of Romancing Rebecca, Amber Polo who is here to talk about her new book.

Welcome, Amber!

Flying Free is about a woman learning to fly, starting life over, and falling for an unlikely man. Can a meat eating Texas advertising woman find love with a vegetarian Buddhist and get her pilot's license despite interference from her wacky Arizona airpark neighbors? It’s a romance, so of course the answer is yes. It’s funny and sad and passes on some interesting information. (Sorry for that but in another life I was a librarian.)

I live in a perfect setting for a novel, one of 500 residential airparks in the U.S . Unlike golf course communities, airparks have runways instead of fairways and every house has a very big garage (hangar). On my airpark everyone knows your business. Everyone. Since most of the residents are retirement age, I wondered what would happen if a young(er) woman moved in. And from there the story took off.

I’m not a pilot. At eighteen it took awhile before I got the hang of driving a car. Now I like looking out the window too much. That said, I want women to know that it’s never too late to make a dream come true. I’m writing and a neighbor got her pilot’s license at age fifty.
In my novel the hero and heroine start new lives in their forties and one of my characters is a flight instructor in her 70s. If you think that’s hard to believe, don’t tell my neighbors. Any woman needing encouragement to learn to fly should contact the local Ninety-Nines chapter of women pilots.
