May Pippa and Hedge live happily ever after.

by Molly Noble Bull

People have always told me that I am a funny lady—that I make people laugh. But as any writer will tell you, humor is hard to write. One man’s funny is another man or women’s corny, silly, stupid.
Nevertheless, Cinderella Texas, my soon to be published western romance is a little scary. Is it another Christian Gothic like Gatehaven where my setting was a haunting mansion in England?
No. Then why is it scary?
Because Cinderella Texas made me laugh as I was writing it. But were readers going to like my kind-of-funny novels? As I was watching Fox News and reading about the wedding of Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, in a line of updates at the bottom of the screen, I read it like this. Pippa Middleton weds Hedge Fund Manager.
Hedge. Or Hedge Fund. Or Hedge F. Manager. What a terrible name for a romantic hero any way you write it—much less the name of the husband of someone as lovely as Pippa Middleton. I’m so glad that Hedge’s real name is James Matthews. It’s more heroic and romantic, too, than Hedge Fund Manager. But then, what do I know?
To read the first chapter of Cinderella Texas, go to my website. www.mollynoblebull.com down and click Molly’s Free Downloads, and while you are there, check out The Secret Admirer Romance Collection and my novella in that collection, “Too Many Secrets.”  It’s funny too—or corny. You decide. To see all my books, click here.
P.S. That’s me in the wedding dress on the arm of my late father, waiting to walk down the aisle. I don’t own a picture of Pippa in hers.

I sometimes "see" things like that at first glance - and get a laugh out of it. We need more laughs. Glad you see them, too!

Thanks Davalyn and Margaret. Science says that laughter is good for your health. The Bible says that a merry heart is like a medicine, and I laugh a lot. I just wish everybody did more of it.
