Meet IN IT TO WIN IT’s Grayson Pierce, by Morgan Kearns

I am Morgan Kearns; former journalist, current author, and mother of four children to keep things interesting. I write contemporary and paranormal romance.

My second novel, IN IT TO WIN IT, is the story of Sportscaster Jane Alexander and Baseball Bad-Boy Grayson Pierce.

Tabloids love Grayson, and I’ve gotta admit I’m pretty fond of him myself.  



MK: *shakes his huge hand* Hey, Grayson, it’s really good to see you.

Grayson: It’s great to see you, too, Morgan. How are things? You torturing Xavier yet?

MK: Torturing? Is that what you think I do?

Grayson: *laughs* Hell, yeah. You’re pretty sadistic.

MK: *rolls eyes* It’s a good thing you’re story’s already done.

Grayson: Seriously, you’re writing his story, right?

MK: I am. He’s an interesting guy.

Grayson: *nods* He needs a good woman who’ll love that chip off his shoulder. Do you know who she is yet.

 MK: Of course. You know her, too.

 Grayson: Really?

 MK: *holds up hand* Before you ask; no, I won’t tell you who she is.

 Grayson: Damn.

 MK: Let’s talk about Jane.

 Grayson: My favorite subject.

 MK: How are things going between you two?

 Grayson: *shakes his head and grins like a fool* She’s good. She’s great. We’re great. Did you know we’re getting married?

 MK: I did hear that somewhere.

 Grayson: *laughs* Yeah, I’m sure you did.

 MK: How’s the long distance thing working?

 Grayson: *frowns* It sucks. Last year was brutal. But I don’t have to report for spring training until February so we’re spending every possible second together ‘til then. After that … I don’t want to think about it.

 MK: Tell me about the first time you saw Jane after fifteen years.

 Grayson: Seeing her was like a two-by-four to the chest. She looked amazing, better than I’d imagined. I didn’t expect her to be standing in the locker room.

 MK: She is a sportscaster.

 Grayson: Yeah. I know, and I expected she’d be shoving a microphone in my face at some point, but I didn’t expect her to show up when she did. I really threw me for a loop.  

 MK: You were kind of a jerk to her.

 Grayson: *laughs* Kind of? I was a complete and total ass! The stricken look on her face nearly killed me. I wanted to scoop her up in my arms and never let her go. I’m surprised she didn’t slap me silly.

 MK: What does the future hold?

 Grayson: I don’t know beyond the wedding. I travel a lot. Her job keeps her in Salt Lake. We’re taking things one day at a time. She loves me, that’s all that matters to me. And she’s amazing.

 MK: What about kids?

 Grayson: *big cheesy grin* Yes.

 MK: Is that an announcement?

 Grayson: *raises brow* You tell me.

 MK: *laughs* Touche. Okay, this question is for Liza; Do you have any available friends she could date?

 Grayson: *shrugs* A lot of the guys are still single. Would I set them up with someone as sweet as Liza? Probably not. But, if you’re to be believed, and Xavier can be tamed, then anything’s possible. Give me her number, I’ll see what I can do.

 Jane sticks her head in.

 Jane: Oh, hey, Morgan. I’m sorry to bug you guys, but I need to steal him away. We’re going to be late for the appointment to pick out Save-The-Date cards.

 Grayson: Thanks, babe. We’re almost done.

 Jane leaves.

 MK: Last question. What’s Santa bringing Jane?

 Grayson: *grins* I know it’s cheesy, but I got her diamond earrings.

 MK: Not cheesy at all. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Stickers, die- cuts, and tape runners… OH MY!

(not my scrapbook)

A lifetime ago I was introduced to scrapbooking my family’s memories. Now this is NOT your typical magnetic photo album, or sticky-backed page albums. The philosophy behind scrapbooking is preserving memories through picture and journaling. Embellishments of stickers, die-cut shapes, ribbons, actually anything you can think of that enhances the theme or topic is layered with the photos on the page.

Some people have a natural flair for the creative and fly once they go to their first scrapbooking workshop. Others see the idea of creating daunting, and they lean on wonderful examples available from many scrapbooking sources as well as workshop leaders. I fall somewhere in between. I love looking at a blank page, putting colors and photos together, along with embellishments, and seeing our memories come to life.

For a while, as our two children were very young, I kept books for them as they grew. But that got too overwhelming to keep up with time wise and financially! After all, I needed paper and all the accoutrements that go along with “scrapping”. So I decided I would only document our vacations. THAT has been a LOAD of fun and much easier on this very busy lady’s mind. The kids STILL take out the books to look and read what I wrote for each page. I even have scrapbooks for my teaching career. LOVE THOSE!

Think about scrapbooking for you and your family. It’s fun and preserves precious memories of people and places that were or are important to you. Here is a list of resources for you if I’ve piqued your interest…
