I love baseball. I always have. So when it came time to write Rookie Season, it was easy to envision a story that developed around the game of baseball.
Baseball is very romantic. Many of us have memories as children of going to ball games with fathers or grandfathers and, even if you didn’t love the game, the memories of sharing the time with someone you love run deep. For those who love the game, nothing is more romantic than baseball.
The feel of the warm sun on your skin. The sounds of the crowd and the crack of the bat. The scent of freshly cut grass. It’s a perfect storm of nostalgia and the glory of the present moment, yesterday and today, love and fun.
Rose Lasting, Rookie Season‘s main character, shares my love for baseball and everything about it. She’s a 36-year-old divorcée who falls in love with a rookie ballplayer (Clay Love) about ten years her junior. They share a deep love for the game, but their passion and connection go much deeper than that.
When I wrote Rose, I wanted her to be an independent woman who was happy and successful on her own. She didn’t need Clay in her life to be okay, so when she met him and fell in love, she wanted him in her life, and then she found a connection she didn’t know she needed.
I think we all have similar experiences. We think we’re happy until we meet someone or have a new experience that shows us how much happier and fulfilled we can be. That’s what happens to Rose.
Even though the story of Rookie Season is set in the world of baseball, you don’t have to know anything about the game to enjoy it. It’s the characters and the story they live that will capture you and draw you in. Just as in life, it’s all about the people and the relationships. The rest is icing on the cake.
