What inspired you to write your book?
I wrote this book to explore how much a true soulmate might be able to forgive for love.
Here is a short sample from the book:
I’m only twenty-three, but I’ve already lost my one great love.
Maybe the fact that I had one at all makes me lucky, but it doesn’t feel it.
Loving and losing at such a young age is something I wouldn’t wish on anyone, something with which I’ve had far too much experience.
But that’s all behind me now.
As for the future, I wouldn’t say it looks bleak, but— considering what I’ve become— it would be naïve to think anyone could ever love me again the way Sebastian did.
He was the kind of man people are always saying doesn’t exist anymore outside of early Hollywood films. He was handsome, intelligent, charming, and he could make me laugh even when the sadness of my life was suffocating.
I’m lucky to have known him, lucky to have loved him first…whereas he’s probably realized by now that he’s lucky I left without saying goodbye.
But I had no choice.
On the plus side, ever since then I’ve had choices. I haven’t made the best ones, of course, but who does? At least being able to make them means I have total freedom for the first time in my life.
Well, not total freedom.
I’ll never have freedom from my darkest secret…or the nightmares it provokes. I’ll never be free from the knowledge that my secret makes me unworthy of love. Or at least, the kind of love that really matters.
If the fact that I loved and lost remains my proudest accomplishment, then my life will not have been wasted.
Besides, it could be worse.
At least Sebastian doesn’t know the truth about what happened. At least, in his memory, I’ll always be young and carefree.
And in my darkest moments, it’s a relief to find that comfort.
