Remember that painfully shy girl in middle school who hid behind a curtain of long straight hair? Of course you don’t! My hair is shorter now and no one who knows me would call me shy. My interest in writing piqued considerably when my eighth-grade English teacher read a student’s work aloud and then announced it was mine, and a fellow student looked at me wide-eyed and exclaimed, “YOU wrote that?” It didn’t hurt that he was cute and had never noticed me before. I still get a thrill when I see my writing published.
After years of writing programming code and technical documentation I quit my job and turned to what I call “early childhood education”: raising children. Now the children are older and I've found the time to write for fun, and it is fun or I wouldn’t be doing it, because I keep myself busy. I'm on the board of a non-profit, belong to the world's best writing group, play tennis, practice yoga, and travel when I can. I'm interested in cooking, gardening, the environment, and nutrition, and I'm an NPR podcast junkie.
There are three signs tacked to my desk: “Stop Me Before I Volunteer Again”, “Ginger Rogers Did Everything Fred Astaire Did Only Backwards And In High Heels”, and “I’ll Try Being Nicer If You Try Being Smarter”. I have two completed novels and ideas for four more. Surprisingly, no agents have come to my door asking if I have any books I’d like published, so I'm doing it on my own.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this fun story about a "nice guy" who is confused by his feelings. A simple yoga class ends up having a tremendous affect upon the life of the main character Greg, opening him up to new people, relationships and experiences that he had been closed to for years. This is an enjoyable light read with a lot of humorous moments. Perfect for the beach, a rainy afternoon or a long flight. Once you start it you'll be curious to see what each character does next, and before you know it the plane is touching down (that's what happened to me).

"Yoga Guy" is a very well written romantic comedy. Once you start reading you are anticipating what will happen next. Will sensitive shy guy fall for the right person or will he choose someone inappropriate. You are constantly entertained with the various sub-plots throughout.
Kudos to the author.

"Yoga guy" is an excellent short novel which is hard to put down and take a break; you're eagerly waiting for what happens next and you can imagine several scenarios. Shy and nice boy meets girls who aren't shy but also nice who move him out of his shell and rut-like life. There are also a few subplots to add a little spice. Definitely a romantic comedy which you could rate PG subtly written by a talented literary weaver. Maybe she'll do a sequel.
