I always end up filling in the gap and more often than not I am able to draw inspiration from the scene I skipped ahead to. (less)

For "Volition" I remember specifically standing in my bathroom back in Germany, wondering what it would be like to have someone know you so intimately that they are literally ALWAYS there, watching your every move...even in the bathroom. What kind of love must a person feel to know a person so intimately, to know their every imperfection...and what if, in return, you didn't know that person at all. It was just a random thought but the spark caught fire. (less)

If you follow me as an author or you are a fan of my novels, than you may be wondering where I've been. You may be asking yourself, did she give up on writing? Has she STOPPED writing all together? What's the 411?

For those of you that might be curious, I'll brief you on what's been going on and what my future plans for writing are.

“The longer I looked into his eyes the more I felt that he was leading me down a road that I was determined not to follow.”
Shawn Kirsten Maravel, Volition

“His eyes darted over the surface of my face. Like a moth to a blaze he was hesitant, seeming to crave my warmth but not its inevitable burn. He explored me from a distance with his unspoken desire, with the fear that touching me would set him to flame. I wanted nothing more in that moment than to prove very much the opposite.”
Shawn Kirsten Maravel, Volition

“‎''A heart that had chosen its path couldn't be led in any other direction.”
Shawn Kirsten Maravel, Severance

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

“I finally understood what true love meant...love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.”
Nicholas Sparks, Dear John

“Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it.”
Nicholas Sparks, A Walk to Remember

“You don't love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not.”

Cassandra Hey, Shawn! I entered the book giveaway with Hayley, and I hope to win, because I REALLY want to read these bad boys.
I am sort of obsessed with angels, and have not been able to find anything good to read about angels. You can see my dilemna.
Anyway! Just by chance of not winning, are you goiing to be realeasing Violition and Severance on Kindle anyrtime soon!? I really want to read these and the easiest way for me is on my Kindle.

Anyway,
Good luck with everything that you do! Happy Writing! :)

Tessie I hope to read that book soon.
It's hard to decide which book I'm going to buy every month, there's just too many great books to choose between.
I probably will find something on your lists, it seems that we have a similar taste in books.
And I couldn't agree more, it's fun to get people to read books that you thought were awesome. :)

Tessie Thanks for your friend request, I should really read Hush, hush.
I've had it on my wishlist like forever, haha.
