“She didn’t believe there was anything like perfect, fairytale love. Most people were flawed and prone to mistakes. She thought herself a romantic but treated love with the same practicality she did most things. They’d had fall-outs and misunderstandings but she’d never been free to be herself like she was with Edward. She couldn’t imagine being with another person after him.”
Myne Whitman, A Heart to Mend

“A lot of aspiring writers are actually very talented and just have to continue polishing their craft till opportunity knocks.

All writers have to persevere, have a story they want to share and push till it's in a form others can understand and appreciate.

To my fans and readers, I love you all and say a great big THANK YOU!”
