L. Anne Carrington – Author Interview
What is your most recent book? Tell us a bit about it.
My new novel is titled The Cruiserweight. The book combines wrestling with romance. Brett Kerrigan and Karen Montgomery aren’t the average novel main characters. There is “wrestler” Brett that the public sees, but readers will get a look at the human side of him. Cocky and arrogant in the ring, away from the spotlight, Brett is a kind-hearted man with anxiety problems which are only calmed by marijuana use. He’s frustrated with his status in a major wrestling company until he’s released from his talent contract. He’s uneasy around women except for those who are his friends or the occasional one-night stand. Karen is a plus sized woman seventeen years older than Brett, and a sports journalist whose focus is on wrestling. She’s been a fan of his for years and even wrote a feature on Brett, which earned her an award. They meet a year after Karen’s feature is printed, become fast friends, and their relationship emerges from there. In between, readers learn of the ups and downs in each of Brett’s and Karen’s respective careers and personal lives.
