“Luck is when opportunity knocks and you answer.”
In my case, the phone rang and I answered. Let me back up. Two friends decided I needed a guy in my life. After dating/kissing some frogs, I was leery at first. They persisted. “But he’s a really nice guy.” So I thought what the heck.
He called. I answered. We talked for over an hour. An hour with a complete stranger. And I wasn’t the only one talking! After more than forty years together, we’re still talking to each other. Was I lucky in love? You betcha. Luck aided by good friends.

In my sci-fi romance The Pilot, Celara isn't so lucky when she meets Trevarr for the first time.
Excerpt from The Pilot:
“My thruster gimbal got damaged when I kissed an asteroid evading filthy pirates. They didn’t catch me, though.” Celara grinned. “Hey, you new around here? Don’t remember seeing you before—and I sure would remember seeing you.”
He arched his dark eyebrow.
She raised her hand, palm outward, in the traditional indie greeting. “Celara d’Enfaden.” As he stared at her with green eyes as sharp and clear as veridion, she raised her own eyebrow. “And you are . . .”
When he reached into the pocket of his work uniform and pulled out a zircan leather folder, she groaned before he even opened it. She knew what the folder contained. A shiny gold badge, carved with an intricate array of stars, swirls and a tiny red jewel in the center. The insignia of the Coalition.
“I am Administrator Trevarr Jovano.” He snapped his fingers and two armed Security personnel stepped out of the shadows of the Agilean Speeder. “I am impounding your ship and confiscating your cargo.”
