Most common question I'm asked: "What does the title Veil of Roses mean?"

My answer: I have no idea! It doesn't mean anything, really. When I sold the novel, I sold it under the title, First Comes Marriage, because it's a play on that childhood rhyme that opens the novel. First comes love, then comes marriage, etc. But the publisher thought that title was too romance-y and wanted something that... Read more of this blog post »

“Given enough time and distance, the heart will always heal.”
Laura Fitzgerald, Veil of Roses

“Courteous men learn courtesy from the discourteous.”
Laura Fitzgerald, Veil of Roses

“When the only answer a little girl ever receives is no, from her parents or her teachers or her world, at some point she stops asking for what she wants. She begins to expect nothing, so as not to be disappointed when that exactly what she gets. But, it turns out, I do have wants.”
Laura Fitzgerald, Veil of Roses

“He thought of the telescreen with its never-sleeping ear. They could spy upon you night and day, but if you kept your head you could still outwit them. With all their cleverness they had never mastered the secret of finding out what another human being was thinking. . . . Facts, at any rate, could not be kept hidden. They could be tracked down by inquiry, they could be squeezed out of you by torture. But if the object was not to stay alive but to stay human, what difference did it ultimately make? They could not alter your feelings; for that matter you could not alter them yourself, even if you wanted to. They could lay bare in the utmost detail everything that you had done or said or thought; but the inner heart, whose workings were mysterious even to yourself, remained impregnable.”
George Orwell, 1984

Your name popped up in the first box of "want to recommend this to anyone?" or whatever that nifty tool is. I did adore the book.
