After publishing two books in 2014, I'd taken some much needed personal time. In July of 2014 I lost my father and to say the grieving process is hard is an understatement. No one is ever ready to lose a parent, but it hit me so hard, because I was close with my dad. As a little girl, I wanted to be just like him and as a woman, all I wanted was to make him proud. When he fell ill, I had hope that he would get through it and I would have more time with him, but he was taken far too soon. My grieving process took quite some time and it made it hard to write. I didn't want the wrong emotions to come through in my books. I didn't want to breeze over my dad's death like it meant nothing, because he meant a lot to me. So I took the time I needed to grieve, do some soul searching and even find some healing.
And then 2015 hit. While I dealt with the healing process, my husband and I made the decision to move our family halfway across the country to Florida (which has been the BEST move of our life). Let me just say, if you've never moved... it's hard work, emotional and stressful. It took some time to settle, but I finally found my way back to writing, my love. I've finished the first draft of two manuscripts and am currently working through them so that I can someday soon share them with the world.
So if you've been here since the beginning of my Broken by the Sea trilogy, I sincerely apologize for such a long wait, but I promise, you will not be disappointed. With an amazing group of people surrounding me, I know Missy's last two books will be amazing.
Please bear with me a bit longer as I polish up the manuscripts and make sure that they are everything you'd hoped they'd be. Books two and three will be here before you know it!!!
