I loved how both Jane and Mr. Rochester fought their attraction to each other, neither wanted to admit they were falling in love. That tension added to the romance and made their love story all the more memorable for it. Jane Eyre is one of my most favorite books! (less)

Marie Meyer, The Turning Point

“I know this hurts, Soph, but the pain will fade. Sadly, though, I can tell you it will never disappear. Your first love leaves a deep mark in your soul, and when that person's gone, the ache is permanent. You just grow to accept it as a part of who you are, because they're a part of you. Always.”
Marie Meyer, The Turning Point

Kailin Hi Cori,

Thank you for your friend request! I'm a mom, too, and I understand how hard it is to do it all - parenting, writing, and teaching.

I see Kami Garcia is one of your inspirations! I adore her work, too. I currently have the good fortune to be working with some of her marketing team. Lots of great things planned this year!

I hope you will reach that dream of yours to be a published author soon one day. Hang in there, Sister, and keep positive :)

With love,
Kailin
