This took some thinking! My most special moments as I write a story is when I reread a scene and it makes me cry... I hope if it has that much impact for me that it may also resonate with a reader.

As a debut novelist (I've had a couple of short stories published in anthologies prior to the release of Always With You) my most memorable moments--so far--are:
--having a laugh when I found it was difficult to articulate that my "story" is now a "book"
--discovering that someone in India is reading Always With You (just that someone in another country is reading my novel was a wow factor for me!)
--receiving a very lovely hand-written note from someone who greatly enjoyed Always With You.(less)

Its scary watching a person pushed by the tide of fleeting passions over that fine line of self-constraints to become a society people-pleaser in an attempt to gain approval, status, or in the means of survival--a home, food, and a resemblance of family and friends.

For example, in novels, this topic has been explored on the level of WW II stories, on both the victim side as well as the enemy side. I wanted to explore the vulnerability of American young adults, desperate for love, family, and making a home and "happily ever after" for themselves.(less)

Everyone’s Story welcomes contemporary author Norma Budden. I had the pleasure of meeting Norma online a few months back and have become fascinated by where she lives: Arctic Canada! And here I am, relieved to have gotten through a blizzard this past week that covered us with 2.5 feet of snow… I’d love to know more about what it’s like to live where Norma does, and about her novels, and I ho...

Since September 2016, I have donated 250 books to bookstores and students. Most of these books were sent to me by publishers in exchange for an honest review. If there’s a book you own and know will never read again, consider giving it to someone who might appreciate it more. Lola ♡

Elaine Stock Christine, I've been busy between work, edits on my chapters for my agent, and my blog, but yes, I finally made it onto GoodReads. I still need to familiarize myself with this site. Step by step.


Christine Lindsay Hey, Elaine, glad to see you here at last.
