Thank you so much for your kind words! Josh and Sofia's story is very dear to me, so it make me happy to know you loved it so much.
Right now, I'm working on a Christmas novella that I'm planning to publish later this year. It's Chris and Luciana's story. He's Italian-American and his family owns a small café in Manhattan. Luciana is from Portugal and works as a knit-restoration expert who comes to work on a collection and gets snowed in right before Christmas. Chris' grandma and mom invite her to stay with them for the holidays. It's a longer novella, at almost 40 thousand words.
After that one, there is Simon and Isabel's story, which is set in Braga again. He's an English Literature professor at the Universidade do Minho, and she's an artist/housekeeper. Simon has a dark family past and he's older than Isabel, and they have lots of obstacles in their way.
Thanks for the question! Feel free to contact me on Facebook. (less)

Lucinda and 19 other people liked Matt's review of Hard Times:
Hard Times by Charles Dickens
"Oh, how I’ve missed Charles Dickens!

Hard Times is quite different than most other Charles Dickens novels. At around three hundred pages it comes in 1/2 the length (or less) of most of Dickens’ other novels. Readers don’t get the numerous plot lines " Read more of this review »

Sarah and Dean came about very unexpectedly but I'm so glad I wrote their story!

It's a quick read novella, set in Maine, and a second chance romance, which is my favorite trope.

Orson Scott Card
“For children love is a feeling; for adults, it is a decision. Children wait to learn if their love is true by seeing how long it lasts; adults make their love true by never wavering from their commitment.”
Orson Scott Card, Pathfinder

Gordon B. Hinckley
“It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It all works out in the end. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.”
Gordon B. Hinckley

E.M. Tippetts
“Movies, good ones, with good leads, they give the audience something they need, okay? A release. An escape. Something that some of us are too broken to give ourselves. Maybe if I'd had a normal childhood, I'd be able to daydream and fantasize and all that on my own, but do you know how many of us can't? People need their dreams. There's a reason why society pays good money for them.”
Emily Mah Tippetts, Someone Else's Fairytale

E.M. Tippetts
“She does this. Told me JP was cheating on me, trashed my Facebook page-'
'Why?'
'Because she's like that.'
'I thought you two were friends.'
'We are.'
'So how, exactly, do you define the term, "friend"?”
Emily Mah Tippetts, Castles on the Sand

Barbara Kingsolver
