Mr. Belvedere Full Opening September 1989 and All Things Eighties

I’m in the middle of the next book in the Virgin Billionaire series, THE VIRGIN BILLIONAIRE REVERSAL OF FORTUNE, and most of the story takes place back in the 1980’s when Jase was only 18 years old.

It’s kind of a cross between “Back to the Future,” and “Peggy Sue Got Married,” but not exactly like either one of them. And I’ve been doing research about the l980’s all week in bits and pieces. It’s weird how you can forget things you’ve actually lived through. I was a kid and a YA in the 1980’s and I wore high top sneakers and parachute pants. I listened to Madonna and drove a Grand National when I got my license in l986, just like the grand national in the photo below. But so many things still need to be researched just to be certain.

And, if you managed to live through the eighties and didn’t at least see Mr. Belvedere once, you have my sincere condolences. Just the hair styles alone have been great from a research POV.
