The Trail to Rom Com Land

I’m known for my ugly-cry books. I’ve always landed on the dramatic end of the scale, which has served me well for my biggest bestselling books like Forever Innocent and Baby Dust.

I’d written a few rom coms here and there, almost by accident. (I’m funny? No. No one thinks the Queen of the Ugly Cry is funny.) But they sold way better than I thought they would. So when the pandemic began, I

This is an unforgettable book. It’s one of those novels that only come around every few years, and you think about it long after it’s done.
Deanna Roy and 1 other person liked BookAddict's review of Royal Escape:
Royal Escape by J.J.  Knight
"There's nothing quite like this Pickleverse in contemporary romance, and it's reach is far and wide – across the US and even into Europe and the small sovereign state of Avalonia. We've seen two unconventional romances from Prince Leopold and Princes" Read more of this review »

“A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit.”
Richard Bach

“If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough.”
Mario Andretti

“What horror to face, to choose the moment of your child’s death, to see the machines whir to a stop, the monitors to beep, the line of the heartbeat to go flat. No one really recovers from that. It must be easier to harden your heart, close the recesses of pain, and live life more simply and with calm deliberation.”
Deanna Roy, Baby Dust

“Dot sat forward and tugged another handful of bracelets from the snarl. “Here’s something I believe.” She held up a green bracelet so that the sun shone clear through the colors on the beads. “I believe that when women like us meet, that our children in heaven also find their way to each other, on account of us all being in the same place and them watching over. So they’re all together—Stella your pair, Melinda’s, and mine. Right now, they’re up there, singing maybe, or playing Red Rover, and probably laughing at us sitting around trying to fix a mess we ourselves made.”
Deanna Roy, Baby Dust

“Crossing the line isn't about forgetting the people we love. It's about not letting our past sorrow steal our future joy.”
