Longtime social activists, the two halves of Adriana like to take on stereotypes and challenge social barriers of all kinds, so it should be no surprise when our characters do the same. Because both of us are academics who somehow never learned how to be stuffy, we love creating characters who are college professors and throwing challenges at them.
One of us comes from four generations of academicians, and the other from a longer string of farmers and blue collar workers, so we thought it would fun to make a pair of characters struggle with such differences in Meghan’s Playhouse Book One: Seducing Cat. On top of that we added an age difference, so thirty-four year old English Professor Caitlin Shanahan has to overcome a double set of prejudices to fall in love with her brawny mid-twenties carpenter, Kurt Davis ~ actually Meg’s carpenter, when the book opens. Not that he doesn’t have some biases too, especially against stuffy professors!
