Whenever I open a book, I’m not just looking for a way to escape reality for a few hours. I’m anticipating the story to take me on an incredible journey through time and space, with complex characters and a satisfying ending.
When I first decided to write for publication, it was my ultimate goal to create that same experience for the reader. What I hadn’t anticipated was the emotional journey I would take as the writer of such a story. My first full-length novel, On Track with Icing, is coming out early 2016. Jacqui and Nick took me on a roller coaster journey of highs and lows, all on their own path to finding true love. I loved spending every moment with them on their expedition, not only to self-discovery and healing of spirit, but also the anguish of feeling defeated in the face of adversity and finding the strength to fight back.
In addition to creating a fun, engaging environment with rich, diverse characters, I feel like I’ve left a huge chunk of myself behind. So much, that my characters even took on some of my personal characteristics (I’ll leave you as the reader to find out which ones).
I hope you love reading their story as much as I loved writing it.
And above all, thank you for succumbing to temptation…
