The inspiration for that series came from looking at the various genealogical eras, and finding things that would inspire others.

Currently I am writing The Eternity Series. Inspiration for the series comes from listening to the characters. Timing is after all are asleep, and the inspiration comes when I desperately need to relax.

I have read nearly all of Mitch Albom's books. Every one of them has spoken to me in their own way. Not once have I been able to put his books down, or to finish them without a good cry.
Congrats, Mitch, on another 5Star read. And thank you very much

“If not us, who? If not now, when?' JFK”
Mike Hartner

“Why is it, Walter, martyr of all the world and direct Son of God, that you can’t see the goodness in your own self? -- Don Castabel”
Mike Hartner, I, Walter

“How could I take anything from him for bringing his daughter safely back to him? Isn't that the right thing to do? And isn't it enough of a reward to see them reunited? --- Walter”
Mike Hartner, I, Walter

“Whereas story is processed in the mind in a straightforward manner, poetry bypasses rational thought and goes straight to the limbic system and lights it up like a brushfire. It's the crack cocaine of the literary world.”
Jasper Fforde, First Among Sequels

“Making women the sexual gatekeepers and telling men they just can't help themselves not only drives home the point that women's sexuality is unnatural, but also sets up a disturbing dynamic in which women are expected to be responsible for men's sexual behavior.”
Jessica Valenti, The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women

“If not us, who? If not now, when?' JFK”
Mike Hartner

“Women have rooms inside of us men cannot fathom.

It’s where we store the depths of the hurt we’ve been dealt.

Where we store the deep love we never want to lose.”
Rachel Thompson, Broken Pieces

“She wondered If I had woken up, would I have smelled his sadness, his desperation, and his detachment?

His death, her breath.

He told her once, she remembers, these two words have no other rhyme but each other.

If she could go back, she thinks --

She would open her eyes, instead of her heart.”
