Hey, I’m Angela Ruth Strong. I write romantic comedy, and one of my books was even made into a movie last year. My husband and I were extras in the cowboy ball scene of Finding Love in Big Sky (available for rent on Amazon Prime), so now I'm obsessed with learning to write screenplays, which you'll see affected my upcoming novel. You can find me on instagram and twitter, but I hang out the most in my facebook group, and I'd love to have you join me.
Hero Debut, is the sequel to my Christy Award-nominated romcom, Husband Auditions. It's about a screenplay writer who attends citizen’s police academy as research and ends up causing all kinds of trouble for the law enforcement officer teaching the class.
I took a very similar class when researching for Hero Debut.
AUTHOR’S POLICE ACADEMY
The class started out with a police officer asking, "Who are the writers? I heard there are writers here." My friend Heather Woodhaven and I raised our hands. The officer then ranted, "In real life, police officers don't take off their shirts to rescue people." He kept going on and on about how unrealistic Hollywood is until he had everyone cracking up.
Class only got better from there. Heather and I both raced cop cars and rode in the back of one. We saw K-9 demonstrations (which she used for her suspense novels), and we watched body cam footage from actual police chases. But there was a whole other unit after that. We also got to play firefighter.
Many of my own embarrassing experiences ended up in the story as did the police officer who inspired the opening scene. Though I'm not going to tell you whether my hero takes off his shirt to rescue the girl or not. You'll just have to read Hero Debut when it releases on August 29th.
