My story centers on a bright young man who thinks he's interviewing a candidate for a lab assistant position. I won't spoil the story, but I will tell you his sexy visitor is not quite what he seems. And of course, for added chaos, there is a rampaging (okay, it's a little too small to be really rampaging) teddy bear robot. My DH coined a special name for the teddy bear - the cuddly juggernaut.
Dr. Forbes Pohle is my favorite type of character to read--someone who's a little afraid of going forward, but unwilling to let fear keep him from doing what he wants to do. I felt just like this while writing my short story - a little afraid of submitting to a publisher but unwilling to let such a great opportunity pass me by. Like Forbes, I think the fear was definitely worth overcoming.
