This took some thinking! My most special moments as I write a story is when I reread a scene and it makes me cry... I hope if it has that much impact for me that it may also resonate with a reader.

As a debut novelist (I've had a couple of short stories published in anthologies prior to the release of Always With You) my most memorable moments--so far--are:
--having a laugh when I found it was difficult to articulate that my "story" is now a "book"

Its scary watching a person pushed by the tide of fleeting passions over that fine line of self-constraints to become a society people-pleaser in an attempt to gain approval, status, or in the means of survival--a home, food, and a resemblance of family and friends.

For example, in novels, this topic has been explored on the level of WW II stories, on both the victim side as well as the enemy side. I wanted to explore the vulnerability of American young adults, desperate for love, family, and making a home and "happily ever after" for themselves.(less)

Elaine Stock Christine, I've been busy between work, edits on my chapters for my agent, and my blog, but yes, I finally made it onto GoodReads. I still need to familiarize myself with this site. Step by step.


Christine Lindsay Hey, Elaine, glad to see you here at last.
