Alexis has had big dreams all her life, and she’s worked hard to make them happen! After college, she married and had a beautiful baby boy, living her dream as “Mommy” until Colton was safely entrenched in grade school. She lands her dream job at NASA, and her supportive husband, Jay, takes the lead on raising their son. The perfect family, right?

Twelve years later with no warning and no reason, Jay commits suicide. Colton goes into denial and blames his mother; Alexis buries herself in her work.

Seven months later, Alexis’s biggest dream comes true. She’s going to be on the next space shuttle! Her victory is short-lived when she finds out she has breast cancer. As her health declines, Colton delves into the dangerous circumstances of his father’s death.

“Family Secrets” crept into Alexis’s life when she wasn’t paying attention. Will she and her son ever find out the truth? Or is it too late?

NOT FORGOTTEN – GOODREADS

BROKEN PROMISES – GOODREADS

Writing your first book.

I remember my first book that I was writing, and I couldn’t decide how I was going to tell the story. Whether in first person, which would have been closer to my heart and I’m not sure if I could let those close to me know all of what I went through with my ex-husband in the book BROKEN PROMISES. Or in third person, which is what I ended up writing it in.

I think I went through the book three or four times, changing the POV (Point Of View), finally settling on third person. Although, the story is 75% true, I threw in some murder to make the book a mystery.

The story tells my readers of what I went through in a mystery setting instead of a memoir.

If I were to rewrite the book, would I change the POV?
Probably yes because first person POV is my best writing and I can get all the emotion in the book that it deserves.

Will I rewrite BROKEN PROMISES?
Doubtful.

It was a hard book to write about what went on in my life with an alcoholic, and it’s something I don’t want to continue remembering. I have started a new life with my daughter and my new husband.

I do have to admit when I was writing the book, it made me sit back and wonder how I made it through all those times, and all those years with him. Part of me wonder if I was that stupid or naive. Most anyone who loves someone will only see what they want to see inside the relationship. I felt at times that I couldn’t make it without him, but that was a foolish thought as I was the only one working and who brought in the money. I knew I just had to do it. I had to get my 5 year old daughter out of that house and into a more stable one.

I don’t want to go telling you the whole book, so here is the link if you want to check it out of any of my other books.
