Thanks for the question :) Typically, I don't plan much of what I write. The story began with the first line: People who knew me think I'm dead. I knew a woman was fleeing New York, but I didn't know why until I started writing and getting to know the characters. I didn't even conceive of her having a daughter until I saw her in California. Then the daughter appeared. I knew she was going to revisit her past in New York, but I didn't know how or why until I was very far into the story. Of course, when the pieces of the puzzle came together, I had to go back and edit to ensure the story was fluid. In a way, writing this story was suspenseful for me, just like I hope it is for the reader. I never really know how things are going to go until I start writing.(less)

I'm so glad you liked the book. For me, the story was about bringing Emily full circle, confronting her past and ensuring a future for Claire (via the introduction to her father). I've had so many people ask about the specifics of that future, which tells me readers are very invested in the characters. That's awesome! I've also had people ask about a sequel. Never say never, I suppose :) (less)

At the beginning of 2018, I flirted with the idea of making a resolution to post here at least once a week. I’m glad I did not make this resolution, as I would have failed miserably. It’s been nearly 2 months since I last wrote. My reasons are not unique; I’m working full time and I have an infant. The other day, I put a dirty onesie in the dishwasher. So, yeah.

“Time doesn't heal all, no matter what they say. And tragedies don't make you stronger. That's another popular lie. They just make you more hardened, less surprised by misfortune.”
