Excerpt: License to Nerd

I have a special place in my heart for the nerds in the world. The socially awkward, the ones too smart to tie their own shoes. So of course I have to write about them. This is a first in a series called Nerds Saving the World.

License to Nerd

Madison West walked down Main Street, Mill Hall, towards the one person who could help her. The one person with such a unique skill set, that no one else could duplicate. A skill set acquired doing things even she didn't have enough security clearance to know about.

Who would have thought he could be in small town New Jersey? Why wasn't he doing something for the government instead of helping his brothers run a two-bit detective agency? That, Madison thought, was probably a story for another day.

Right now, she needed him for a case. Her last case, she reminded herself. She was not going to work for the government anymore.

Not that he would know her real agenda. No, she had to play this as if she was just looking for Charlie.

With the sun in her face, she strode down the sidewalk looking for Quincy Detective Agency. She found it in a brick building that stood apart from those on either side, creating two alleys. She ducked into one of them to think once again about what she would say to Peter Quincy when she saw him for the first time in, well, since she married her husband.
