Welcome Author Carol Preflatish & the Colts to the Football Blog Tour Stop!

Here's Carol to gush about her team, The Colts!

STEPH: Who's your favorite football team? How long have you been a fan?

CAROL: My favorite team is the Indianapolis Colts and I've been a fan for over ten years.

STEPH: Who's your favorite player "playing" right now? Why?

CAROL: I've always been a sucker for the kickers. My favorite Colt is their kicker, Adam Vinatieri, but a very close second is their wide receiver, Austin Collie. Both players are very dedicated and have played with injuries that could have ended their careers.

STEPH: Who's your favorite all time Colts player?

CAROL: My all time favorite Colt would be Brandon Stokley. He was a wide receiver that played for the Colts a few years ago. He was always the one player that could pull out a catch when they really needed it. Unfortunately, he suffered a lot of injuries and the Colts released him. He played for the Denver Broncos for a while and he's now with the Seattle Seahawks.

STEPH: Who's the Colts "evil" nemsis?

CAROL: That would have to be the New England Patriots. No matter how good or bad either team is for that particular season, you never know who will win and you can always count on an exciting game. Both teams have such superb quarterbacks, that it's really a joy to watch them do battle.

STEPH: Ever been to a football game? What's it like?

CAROL: I went to my first Colts game last year and I loved it, even with the horribly high seats we had. The energy is so exciting and when the team is announced and they run onto the field, I got shivers. It was so cool. It also feels like a much slower pace than on television because you have to wait for the commercial breaks at the game. At the game we were at, we sat next to a husband and wife and the husband normally works security on the field for the game. It was his day off so they came to watch the game together. It was really interesting to hear some of the inside stuff they said. For instance, we got really cold during the 4th quarter. He said that Peyton Manning gets hot toward the end of the game, so he wants the heat turned off.

STEPH: Do you own a jersey?

CAROL: I own two jerseys. I have a Brandon Stokley, which I don't wear since he doesn't play for them anymore. My other jersey is a Peyton Manning jersey. I bought it because I needed a jersey and I couldn't find a Vinatieri or Collie jersey, but I'm on the lookout for either one this season.

STEPH: What's your favorite food to eat during the game?

CAROL: I always pop a big bowl of buttered popcorn to eat and Diet Pepsi to drink while I watch the television pre-game. I do have a special sandwich that I always fix for the Super Bowl. it's Hawaiian Ham and Cheese Mini Sandwiches and you can find the recipe on my Food blog at


Nathan Perry, having recuperated from a Gulf War injury, returns to his hometown of Mystic, Massachusetts to become the town's first ever police detective.

His first assignment is to discover who has been stealing valuable antique signs from the town's businesses and why. Even though he's a hometown boy, Nathan finds some of the residents less than cooperative with his investigation.

During his investigation, Nathan is surprised to find out who is involved and what the thefts are linked to.

This book will be available as a Kindle ebook later this fall. Watch my web site for news on the release,
