“My mom always told me that when you’re doing what you’re supposed to do, the universe will help you out. It may throw you a few curveballs, but they’re all in the name of a good cause. Once you leave your path behind, that’s when you start swimming upstream. It’s good advice.”
Emily Colin, The Memory Thief: A Novel

“Holy denial, Batman. I feel this way because I love her. I”
Emily Colin, The Memory Thief: A Novel

“You don't really love me, or you never would have treated me like you did. You were just afraid of letting me go. There’s a difference, and no one knows that better than I do. We were both afraid of moving on, me of what I really wanted. It brought us together, it bound us, but no longer. I am done with making decisions based on fear. [Nicholas to Grace]”
Emily Colin, The Memory Thief
