Hi, it's me—the author who released a book at the end of July and then disappeared. My dad passed away just two weeks later after a long and hard-fought battle with cancer and I am once again settling the estate of someone I loved dearly who lived a beautiful life.
It's funny to me to think of Cara and Reid in Be What Love Is, going through the house, room by room, sometimes item by item, and begging by the end to have someone come in to take it all away. I was just presuming back then, but I wasn't far off.
I've been at this for a few years now. They've been hard years after losing my husband and then supporting my dad through his illness and passing. I've changed fundamentally as a person through it. My imagination has been suppressed. It's a miracle I even got Velocity out after all those years.
This season of my life as an author is over and I'm easing into the next one. I'm not saying forever, after all seasons return, right? But I'm no longer going to try and force it. I'm only going to pick it back up when I want to tell a story.
In 2024, I plan to reset and figure out who I am and what I want in this next season of my life.
Thank you for sticking with me this far. Thank you for your support and kind words throughout these past three difficult years. Thank you to the friends I've made along the way.
