Lane Martin's Defensible Space is a charming performer and firefighter contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg's Everyday Heroes Worlds project!
The whole world knew me... but I didn't know myself. When I wasn't performing--my life was sterile hotel rooms, lukewarm room service, and binge-watching cooking and home improvement shows on cable. I did what I was told to do and went where I was directed to go. I don't know what made me get in my car and drive to Sunnyville that day. Was it fate? Destiny? I'm not sure. Maybe. Everything in my life changed that day, and I finally learned who I was meant to be.
I grew up in a small town. My life was planned--the job, the house, the girl. Even the dog. As a firefighter, I knew how fast things could change, and yet I wasn't prepared for what began that Thursday. There was no Defensible Space--no buffer that protected me from the loss of everything I thought was my future. Instead of facing my fears, I packed it up and headed to Sunnyville. Some might have said I was running.
Funny--That's exactly what I was doing when I ran into Penny Anderson while chasing my wayward dog.
At the time I didn't know it, but she found me when I was lost.

Lane Martin lives in Northern California with her husband of over twenty-five years. She has two children. Her daughter recently graduated from American University in Washington, DC. Her son is attending the local junior college to become a firefighter. Lane learned about Fanfiction after reading a little trilogy written by E.L. James. After reading many of the stories, she decided to give it a try and posted her first one-shot story in July of 2013. It was the first thing she had written since graduating from college in 1993. She remembered an English teacher had once threatened to beat her up if she wasn't published by the time she was thirty. She soon had many stories on the site. Blessed with great readers and a supportive family, she decided to write her first book. She wishes she knew then what she knows now, but don't we all. Lane enjoys reading and listening to romance novels when she isn't writing her own. She likes traveling to new places to meet other authors and readers.
