My husband and I dated in high school; and I broke his heart. He found me some sixteen-seventeen years later and we’ve barely been apart a day in the eight years since. When he discovered, fairly early, that I was a writer, he’s always been insanely supportive, he began bugging me to write our story.

I explained, time and again, that I don’t 1) write non-fiction; and 2) no one will want to read it. The legal repercussions of non-fiction would turn me off even if I had an urge to write within that genre and our happily ever after is just like everyone else’s: work hard, sleep not enough, budgeting, food shopping, laundry, and so on.



Eventually, for him, I wrote A Love Restrained. It is a complete work of fiction and in no way resembles our love story. But it takes place in our hometown, in the neighborhood where we live; with characters I intentionally drew to feel familiar. The title was inspired by the song I walked down the aisle to at our wedding. It’s a love letter to the man who never gave up.

I was over the moon when Tirgearr Publishing offered me a contract on the book. But when I got my release date – October 4th – I knew fate had lent a hand. You see, October 4, 2017, is our 3rd wedding anniversary. And though I didn’t dedicate the book to my husband, he’ll know always it was written for him.

You think that means I can skip getting him a present this year?
