My heart has been heavy with all that is going on with this new pandemic. As one person, my reach seems very inadequate. Yet, as I sat with my husband and kids last night safe and healthy around me, I was overwhelmed with wanting to do something, anything, to maybe ease the fear and worry and uncertainty that surrounds us. And I thought about why it is that I do what I do, why I choose to write ‘Happily Ever Afters’. I write love stories because, for me, they are the perfect escape when reality seems a little too heavy.
