Somehow you work through it, sometimes by writing anything that comes to mind, other times by settling down and nutting it out in a sane fashion. Did I say "sane"? I must be mad, there's no such thing as a sane writer :)(less)

I recently did an Ancestry DNA test and found out I am mainly Eastern European, partially Irish and a small part Central Asian. The latter I take to mean Asia Minor - tending toward Russia. I have quite a lot of second cousin matches, though only one has emailed me. So - a mystery!!! Perhaps I am part of a family who are thugs/rich/spies or celebrities! What if they don't want me in the family and are prepared to murder me to keep me out? All the possiblities are on the table with this one lol Thank you for asking the question :)(less)

The traditional husband cheating on wife in this book has a different twist. Many times books have shown the debacle from the wife's point of view, but this author has managed to find a new angle on the scenario.
