Tackling issues of addiction, infidelity, abortion, deceit, and how they affect relationships, his story is heartbreaking yet familiar to anyone who’s ever been disappointed by love.
What lessons could readers learn about real-world relationships from your novel(s)?
The rawness and grit it takes to make a relationship work. The reality that marriage and committed relationships aren’t perfect; that there is not a balance but if two people are committed to each other despite their flaws, their pasts, and their mistakes, they can get through anything.
What real-life relationship experiences, observations or insights have influenced your writing?
I like to tell stories that feel so real, readers question whether or not the story is fiction. I have been married for thirteen years, I am a mother of three, and I have always observed the world around me and allowed myself to feel things deeply. And in doing so, I realized everybody has something that makes them hurt, that makes them feel invisible or lost. Using the aches of life as a catalyst for my books is how my stories unfold.
Are there any relationship themes or topics you want to cover in future releases?
Friendships. Lies. Tragedies. Job loss. Any major life event that can shift the stability of a relationship is right up my alley.
