If I don't have an idea or I'm struggling with the pacing, the scenes or character development, I get really frustrated and that doesn't help the story. So I walk away, scope out my surrounding for a week or two or sometimes more to try and gather some more ideas and eventually it all falls into place.(less)

Description: Haylie Julian wants nothing more than to put her crumbling marriage back together. Chase used to be a fun-loving, light hearted husband who had lately become an overworked attorney obsessed with climbing the corporate ladder. It isn’t long before Haylie starts waking up next to a man she barely knows. His secretive phone calls and late nights at the office leave her feeling alone and afraid of what he might be hiding. Ignoring his continuous pleas to just leave well enough alone, she continues to dig for answers and discovers a heartbreaking truth. Struggling with what she has just learned, Haylie sets off to a quaint little North Carolina beach town to decide if her marriage can survive. It isn’t long after she arrives that her world is once again turned upside down as Chase’s secret stares her right in the fac

“Hearts will break and people will hurt you, darling.” Her mother said. “But when you let those people control your outlook on the life, you only allow them to have a greater hold on your happiness. Once you accept the fact that every day is a new day to begin again, life becomes a much easier path to walk.”
Courtney Giardina, Holding on to Georgia

“A man who respects his wife, does not sleep with other women. And a woman who respects herself does not allow her husband to get away with it”
Courtney Giardina, Tear Stained Beaches

“Marriage is not easy, I thought to myself. It’s not supposed to be easy. It’s two different people, from two different backgrounds, trying to build a life together for better or worse. It’s something you have to work at every single day. There are going to be hard times and those are the times you are supposed to fight like hell.”
Courtney Giardina, Tear Stained Beaches

“A man who respects his wife, does not sleep with other women. And a woman who respects herself does not allow her husband to get away with it”
Courtney Giardina, Tear Stained Beaches

“. I felt the sun graze my face as I sped further and further from it all. The only negative part about running was that at some point I knew I’d have to stop. I’d have to turn around and go back. And whatever troubles had haunted me when I left, would be waiting upon my return.”
Courtney Giardina, Tear Stained Beaches

“I find it funny that you could pass the same person on the street, in a store, or even in your neighborhood many times before actually meeting, thinking you’ve never seen them before, but when you are finally introduced, they seem to pop up everywhere.”
Courtney Giardina

“Marriage is not easy, I thought to myself. It’s not supposed to be easy. It’s two different people, from two different backgrounds, trying to build a life together for better or worse. It’s something you have to work at every single day. There are going to be hard times and those are the times you are supposed to fight like hell.”
Courtney Giardina, Tear Stained Beaches

“You see, in every story, it’s not about the ending. It’s about the chapters in between and how you make it through them”
