As far as sequels go, I never say never, but at this point I don't have a plan to continue their story. What I can tell you, though, is that in earlier versions of the novel, I had taken Loann off to college (photography school) and she was really learning to embrace her talent. And when she returned at Christmas break, she stopped first at the cafe to see Marcus before even returning to see her parents. :-)(less)

So to combat this mythical problem, I give myself permission to write really badly when I need to. (Surprisingly, even when I do this, I end up with some writing that I'm actually really happy with!)(less)
