The Courage to Really Live

Thank you to Cathy for hosting me today, and a big hello to Cathy’s readers! <waves> I’m currently on blog tour with my husband, Deek Rhew, to celebrate the release of his book and the spotlight feature my publisher is putting on my trilogy, The Fulfillment Series!

In 2007, I thought I was going to die. Not in the “OMG, I’m going to die” figurative sense, but in the literal “I’m sick enough to actually die” sense. I’m thankful to have a huge family and tons of friends who supported me through many surgeries and on the long recovery road. 

This girl is dying. Continue reading

Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 19.01.26Synopsis:
Ten years ago, Danielle ‘Dani’ Jackson graduated from Coastal State University in Wilmington, North Carolina and left her heartache behind –for what she thought was forever.  Now a promising pediatric surgeon at Boston Children’s Hospital she is invited back for her college reunion. With the encouragement from her best friend, Dani begrudgingly goes back and faces her past – the death of her friend and her broken heart from Jake Dillon, her first love. During her trip she revisits the four years she spent at CSU. Her applying to CSU defied her father and the ‘perfect’ plan he had for her which was to attend an Ivy League school before medical school but Dani had other plans. She traded in her father’s dream for an institution with sandy beaches, soccer and one that made her feel at home. Dani never questioned the decision- she knew she was right but she didn’t know was how hard growing up was going to be.  
 
At the reunion she is reconnected with her friends Adeline ‘Addie’ Smith and Colleen ‘Callie’ Schumaker.  The girls met freshman year under Addie’s tenacity and quickly became inseparable but since graduation they have started to drift apart. The weekend is only further complicated when Jake shows up. Together they all realize that life has been hard on everyone and no one’s life has been perfect. The reunion weekend gives them the time to deal with the past and an opportunity for a second chance – for each of them.

It’s 1969 and Mary Schormann is living quietly in Wales with her ex-POW husband, Peter, and her teenage twins, Richard and Victoria.
Her niece, Linda Booth, is a nurse – following in Mary’s footsteps – and works in the maternity ward of her local hospital in Lancashire.
At the end of a long night shift, a bullying new father visits the maternity ward and brings back Linda’s darkest nightmares, her terror of being locked in. Who is this man, and why does he scare her so?
There are secrets dating back to the war that still haunt the family, and finding out what lies at their root might be the only way Linda can escape their murderous consequences.

The third and final part of the trilogy picks up the story in the late 1960’s and concentrates on the next generation.
