Thee books, Three Happy Ever Afters

My This Time Forever series is currently free to read for Kindle Unlimited subscribers!

Each of these books features a different couple and can be read alone, but the characters all know each other, and I check in with everyone in each book, building a small community around family–the ones we’re born to and the ones we find, friends–old and new, and the communities that bind everyone together.

(Also, if you start at the beginning, you’ll get Brian’s complete story and everyone tells me they like Brian’s book, Chasing Forever, best. Me? I like ’em all.) Continue reading “Thee books, Three Happy Ever Afters”

New Release: Renewing Forever

It’s release day for Renewing Forever! This book is for everyone who ever wondered about the one who got away. In Renewing Forever, I combined two of my favourite tropes: friends to lovers and second chances.

Frank and Tom were best friends and each other’s first love. Maybe each other’s only love. But the night Frank finally found the courage to kiss Tom, everything went wrong.

Now, thirty years later, they have the chance to set everything right.

This story broke my heart a few times, but the ending is one of the most solid happy ever afters I’ve ever delivered. It’s deep and true. And despite the sad times, there is plenty of fun to be had as Frank and Tom reconnect and look for ways to renew a broken down resort, and their own forever.

About the Book

RenewingForever_500x750Renewing Forever

Frankie and Tommy once dreamed of traveling the world together. But when seventeen-year-old Frank kissed Tom, their plans ended with a punch to the jaw and Frank leaving town without looking back. Thirty years later, Frank’s successful career as a journalist is interrupted by his uncle’s death and the question of his inheritance—the family resort where his childhood dreams were built. When he returns to the Pocono Mountains, however, he finds a dilapidated lodge and Tommy, the boy he never forgot.

Tom’s been keeping the resort together with spit and glue while caring for Frank’s uncle, Robert—a man he considered father, mentor, and friend—and his aged mother, who he refuses to leave behind. Now Robert is gone, taking Tom’s job with him. And Frank is on the doorstep, wanting to know why Tom is still there and why the old lodge is falling apart.

But before they can rebuild the resort, they’ll have to rebuild their friendship. Only then can they renew the forever they planned all those years ago.

Frank’s Story

I have a Big Book of Ideas. My “book” is actually scattered across several notebooks and my ideas are sandwiched between outline sketches, snippets of dialogue, pages of brainstorming for plot points, and journal entries. There is no order to any of it—but I always know which book to grab when I’m looking for my notes about a specific idea.

Frank and Tom’s story happened in two separate notebooks. I had an idea for a story about an abandoned resort and the guy who was living in one of the broken-down cottages. And then I had a character sketch for Frank, who one of my beta readers had loved and wanted me to write a book for. When I married those two ideas together, this story was born.

Renewing Forever is different from anything else I’ve ever written. Before coming together in these pages, Frank and Tom had been leading such full lives–and yet, there was always something missing. With this story, I not only got the chance to fill that gap for both of them, but to right a wrong and restore the balance to these two lives!

If you’ve read Building Forever, you’ll enjoy a visit with Simon and Charlie in this book, and will hopefully get a little more curious about Brian’s motives–in the past and for the future. But if you’re new to the series, Renewing Forever stands alone as a complete novel and love story.

Read the first few chapters!
