“Destiny is your potential waiting to happen, and when you’re ready to accept it you need to be open for a change. It’s the grandest of possibilities—where your dreams come true.”
When I started writing my first book it was going to be an airline story about a flight attendant, but it didn’t seem like the right fit for me so I started over. I began writing a story that was inspired by the cross-country adventure my sister and I took when we were in our early twenties. That story developed a life of its own and drew me into a fictional journey I never anticipated. I wanted the message in the story to have a heartfelt meaning so I watched for the signs that would help guide me. Sometimes the signs lit up like bright neon lights, and other times I felt like someone was tapping me on the shoulder to remind me to pay attention. It became obvious that I was being guided by a universal energy and I thanked God often. It makes me smile when I say my sister is the only person who knows which stories in the book are true. We also share many other memories that ended up in the editing trash bin, but will remain in our secret memory files. We had a great time. The story developed into a vibrant, sassy, and sensual family saga interweaved with special life messages and details about the people the sisters meet on their journey. This spicy love story will arouse your senses, fill your heart with joy, make you laugh, and cause tears to stream down your cheeks.
Writing this book was a tremendous learning experience for me. It was exhilarating and fun, nerve-racking and exhausting; and because I was rooted so deeply in the story and inside the minds of the characters, it was emotional. I didn’t realize when I was writing it that all the random pieces of the puzzle, that sometimes felt insurmountable, were being custom fitted for me; not only for the content of the book I was writing, but at the same time, different puzzle pieces were coming together to form a new foundation for my life. I was finally able to appreciate and believe that the sensations I was experiencing during the research and writing process were being designed specifically for me—to create a blossoming new adventure for me.
