I love words. I always have. In songs, in poems, in books, in movies—words move me. In my younger years, I dabbled in writing as a therapy and an escape, but I never expected it to become more than that. While deep in the depths of mommying several small children, I took seven years to write my first book, Just Ella. During that time, I taught myself how to write a novel through a whole lot of trial and error. Not the most time-efficient method, but it gave me an education I wouldn’t have received from a class or a how-to book. Something about the struggle of writing without a formula or rules worked for me. I wrote for me. I wrote from my heart space, and I think that’s the reason that Just Ella has found room in so many of my readers’ hea ...more

I love that neither of them plays hard to get. I love that they play and have fun together, and TALK. They build a relationship instead of just being physically attracted to one another.(less)

Quotes by Annette K. Larsen  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“You were the one choice I made for myself. And that one choice was taken away from me, because the night I realized I was in love with you was the same night you left.”
Annette K. Larsen, Just Ella

“he’s the other half of my heart.” I shrugged a little, knowing it sounded fanciful and romanticized. “I can’t be myself without him.”
Annette K. Larsen, Just Ella

“I had spent a great deal of time in the library, getting lost in the worlds created in books while avoiding the world I lived in”
Annette K. Larsen

“Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! - I have as much soul as you, - and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you!”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“People liked religion but they didn't want to have to exercise any faith. Religion was comforting with all its structure and its rules. It made people feel safe. But faith wasn't safe. Faith was hard and uncomfortable and forced people to step out on a limb.”
Amy Harmon, The Law of Moses
