Could You Be A Papaphile?

Debut author and self-professed Ernest Hemingway fanatic starts new blog with plans to touch on all topics Heminway: writing, love, drugs, sexual ambiguity, and everything in between.

HARTFORD, Conn., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Christine Whitehead is a lawyer and writer working in Hartford, Connecticut.  Hemingway's connection to CT is tenuous but he did have a brief stay at the renowned psychiatric hospital, The Institute of Living, shortly before his death. Whitehead loves Hemingway's writing and finds him to be fascinating and complex.

Her new blog dedicated to his complexity and how his issues still resonate is many of our lives today can be found at:

What would Papa say about a blog? Whitehead refers to Hemingway's quote that "no subject is terrible if the story is true, if the prose is clean and honest, and if it affirms courage and grace under pressure," she also ascertains that he was a journalist first and foremost, and kept up with the times, so she thinks he'd be amused.

Whitehead has also written her first romance/thriller novel, Tell Me When It Hurts, where Archer Loh, an Ivy League grad and Olympic horseback rider, has been carefully groomed to be a government assassin but, at the moment of decision, instead chooses law school, her college sweetheart, and a quiet life in Connecticut, leaving her violent apprenticeship behind as her own little secret. When her only child is murdered and the killer goes free on a technicality, Archer ditches family, career, friends and horses to find justice. At her lowest ebb, Connor McCall, Harvard-educated financial baron turned Wyoming sheep rancer, stumbles into her life, bringing with him his own demons. And everything changes.

"Character development is everything in a romance novel. If the characters do not have believability then the story cannot work. Tell Me When It Hurts has believability. The reader can relate to Archer and Connor because their actions, reactions and feelings ring true to the reader's experiences even if those experiences do not rise to the level of tragedy that afflicts Archer. This novel has action, romance and believability. Well written and a "good read", it is a tale fit for the big screen. I look forward to more..." – Amazon reviewer
