About this author

Here All Along is one woman's struggle to leave an abusive marriage, twice. Her struggle through the court system in hopes of finding someone to help protect her and her daughters from her ex-husbands who refused to let go. Her fight to obtain and keep her restraining order three years in a row and finally learning who she could count on to protect her and her children. Here All Along is an inspirational story of one woman's fight for freedom, her desire to protect her children and finding the strength to believe in herself. No one should ever be abused by someone who says "I love you."

Cheryl Hello Lori,

Thank you for considering to add your vote for my debut romance Lancelot's Lady. It's been an exciting contest so far, and I'm really working hard at adding new chapters and editing them before the judges start reading (November).

I'd love to hear what you think!

Please consider checking out Lancelot's Lady right away. I now have 32 short chapters up. If you enjoy it, simply click on the blue thumbs up circle, and voila! I'll get a message saying you voted. Right now I'm in jeopardy of losing my lead as #1 Most Popular.

You'll hopefully get a great read and of course my undying gratitude. :-)

And don't worry, signing up on Textnovel.com is fast, easy and you won't get any spam.

http://textnovel.com/stories_list_det...

Thank you again for the "maybe". If you've already voted thumbs up, THANK YOU!!! :-)

I wish you the very best in success always.
