Davy Jones' death got me thinking of many things: time passing, plus how everyone--especially women--reacted. It truly didn't matter how old you were. Davy was so cute, the boy you could dance with in the gym and man, could he move.
Writing the title story of I Woke Up In Love This Morning was fun to write for the seventies details, plus timeless ones as well: Thrifty's ice cream. Watching As The World Turns in the afternoon. Being in the middle of a long hot summer when the only excitement is gossip. I had summers like that in my life. It was also fun to write about the seventies as well, especially David Cassidy. The shag haircut! The puka shells! That smile! The feeling of believing every word he sang about, priceless.
