Nov 25 Meet Penny Estelle and her characters, Elizabeth McMurphy and Steve York

The Unwanted Christamas Guest 333x500

Good morning, Margaret. Thanks so much for having me on your blog today. I’m visiting Colorado for the holidays and I would like to introduce two guests I have brought along with me.

This is Elizabeth McMurphy and Steve York.

So Elizabeth, let me start with you. Tell us all a bit about yourself and what you do and what your holiday plans are.

Elizabeth I am an attorney with D.D & D. I am rounding up a high profile case right now. When that is done I am heading out of town.

Can you share with us what the case is about?

Steve I can tell you about it. This snow queen is trying to bring one of the most respected men in Denver to his knees on some trumped up charges.

Folks, this is Steve York and he works for the Denver Gazette.

Elizabeth What Mr. York needs to do is stick to reporting the weather because he has no idea what this case is all about and weather is something his small brain can wrap around.

Now you two, let’s all take a breath and calm down and talk about our Christmas plans.

Elizabeth My plans are to head to the mountains. I have a cabin up there and I can get away from obnoxious, know-it-all reporters who don’t have a clue.

Steve As it turns out, after I get this last story out about certain injustices, I am also headed out of town to spend time with family. I have had my fill of overblown spoiled bitches.

Okay, okay. Let me thank you both for coming in to chat with me and all these fine people and I think we’ve heard enough for now. I hope your holidays are restful and you each get the happiness you are looking for.

Elizabeth McMurphy is an up and coming high powered attorney and is after vengeance, involving one of the richest and most powerful families in Colorado. Steve York is an obnoxious reporter that thinks the ice queen has gone too far and does all he can to get under her skin.

When one of the worst blizzards in history, hits CO and leaves a hurt Steve York, stranded with Elizabeth in a mountain cabin. Things start to heat up between the two, thawing their icy relationship. But – Elizabeth guards a secret that must be kept at all costs, even to the point of risking love and her own happiness.


“What’s going on here? Where the hell are my pants?”

Elizabeth practically jumped out of her skin. Steve stood in the bedroom doorway, wearing only some tight fitting pink sweats.

“I found you after your car went nose to nose with a tree.” She crossed her arms. “The question is, what were you doing up here in a snowstorm? Were you coming up here to spy on me?”

“Jesus, my head hurts.” Steve groaned and sat at the kitchen table. “And don’t flatter yourself.” He brought up his hands to rub his eyes and push on his temples. He started to say something when a giggle and a round of undistinguishable sounds caught his attention. Steve stared at the little girl, a whisper of a smile on his pale face. “You have a daughter?”

She chose to ignore the question. “Again, Mr. York, you were headed…where?”

“I was going to see some friends in Granby, then on to Steamboat to spend the holidays with my family.”

“You figured on taking a short cut on Badger Springs Road?”

“Basically,” he muttered. “I had a phone in my pants pocket…” Steve looked down at the pink sweats. “Yours, I presume?” At her nod, he asked with a smirk, “And you’re the one that took my clothes off?”

“Junior, my neighbor.”

“If you’ll allow me to use your phone, I’ll call Triple A and get myself and my car out of your life.” He reached over to Katy and she latched onto his finger, the brightest smile ever illuminating her sweet face.

Elizabeth quickly picked her up, as if he would contaminate her by his touch. “Phones are out.”



“How the hell do you live here?” he asked irritably.
