Life can look serene. There are moments when it is, and we take a deep breath to inhale the beauty, happiness, and tranquility. If only that moment could stay a bit longer or forever. But life changes, and we face new experiences every day. Still, we have that scene forever in our hearts.
Love is unlimited in its forms. For some. love is embodied in their mate. For others, their passion is their religion, business, art, or hobby. Some give their love to babies. Others give their love to fur babies. Families and friends can be fountains of love. Love has many forms and when it’s given as a gift, unconditionally, it fills our lives with wonder. I’ve seen that sparkle of childlike wonder and happiness when a person is in love.
I am grateful to know that experience.
Recently I filled out an author interview for a blog and they asked the question, “Who is your hero?” I wrote about my husband who has stuck with me through thick and thin. Not everyone goes through what I did. I had breast cancer on top of advanced Lyme disease, and I had an extremely hard time with the chemotherapy and surgery. I’m recovering from all of it, but it is slow going. My husband is always with me both in the hospital, in the infusion center, or at home. He is a father and grandfather and is the heart of the family. He is a great guy.
When I write a romance, I set my standards for the hero by my husband. I want my hero to be kind, funny at times, clever, and no matter what other qualities he has, to possess a true enduring love for the heroine. I am continuing to write more books for the Arnhem Knights of New York series. Each book is a stand-alone tale and focuses on a member of the Vander Meer family of vampires and their friends.
Recovering from cancer isn’t easy. My energy level is not back to normal yet. It’s also put me behind in my holiday shopping. If you are behind in yours, may I recommend books? The Vampire with a Blanket of Stars is available in Amazon Kindle and print.
Wishing you joy and love!
