#IShipIt with Wendy Lyn Watson

Let’s talk Parks and Rec. Never has a sit-com about local government bureaucracy sparked so many epic love stories. April and Andy. Ann and Chris. Ron and Tammy.

But no Pawnee romance burned as bright as Leslie Knope and Ben Wyatt.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I was pretty protective of Leslie, the waffle-loving filibuster enthusiast everywoman. I worried she would never find her perfect running mate. But then Ben came along, and he won us over in a landslide.

How do we love Ben? Let us count the ways ….

(1) He’s a burning hunk of man meat. Especially if you’re into men with elvish figures.


(2) He appreciates Leslie for exactly who she is: an untamed force of political will.


(3) He completely gets the difference between a mid-90s party and an early-90s party. Because those are two totally different parties. For real.


(4) He’s man enough that he isn’t jealous of Leslie’s major crush on former Vice President Joe Biden. #silverfox


(5) He appreciates literature.


MOST IMPORTANTLY, Ben, like Leslie, understands that love matters, but so is friendship.

Wendy Lyn Watson’s life has been stranger than fiction. Between working in a pool hall in Virginia, living in a community of priests near Detroit, and learning to curl on Minnesota’s Iron Range, she’s gathered enough material for a hundred books. Turning all those experiences and characters into stories is her life’s ambition. Wendy believes that love and murder go together like chocolate and peanut butter: she writes mysteries dipped in romance, romances dipped in mystery, and both smothered in a generous dollop of humor. When she’s not losing herself in another book, she teaches American government and constitutional law to college kids. She lives in Texas with her hero of a husband and three very spoiled cats. She loves to hear from readers; you can find her on the web at www.wendylynwatson.com, @wendylynwatson, and facebook.com/wendylynwatsonauthor.
