Crinkles All the Way
Ann M. Trader
Release day: 12-7-22
Benny O’Brien owns his reputation—carefree bachelor and successful computer design engineer with one of Atlanta’s premier firms. In keeping with the Christmas spirit, he agrees to teach a middle school coding club as a favor to a coworker. He expects to debug computer statements...not his heart.
As the new public relations coordinator at the firm, Claudia Banks spends her days strategizing market segments and her evenings relaxing with her close-knit group of girlfriends…or curling up with a favorite book. When her office crush signs on to her school outreach program, she braces for a lesson in irresistible attraction.
The stakes rise when the two come together over the school’s Christmas dance and a mysterious scrapbook. As secrets tug at their hearts, will they choose honesty and go all in for love?

What inspired the story
Benny O’Brien is a supporting character from my first book with The Wild Rose Press, The Gingerbread Cookie Code. In this book, Benny plays the smart, confident, and charming best friend to Clay.
As I was thinking about writing my next book, Crinkles All the Way, my thoughts kept circling back to Benny…and what was his real challenge? What made him tick? I began thinking about learning styles and successful people I’ve known with dyslexia. That clicked for me, and I began sketching out Benny and Claudia, their workplace romance, and a little “twist” with the cookie recipe and scrapbook. I had a lot of fun with this story and hope readers will enjoy it!

More about Ann
I enjoy spending time with my family, trying out new recipes, and relaxing on my back porch to read and write. These days I take walks around my neighborhood, but when I was sixteen, I hiked the Grand Canyon with a group of friends. I love watching television dramas (in no special order: Stranger Things, The Gilded Age, The Last Kingdom, 1883, Outlander, Poldark, Yellowstone, Outer Banks, and Peaky Blinders) and reading a great romance book.
