A Healing Journey

I began writing a few months after my dear brother's death from brain cancer. I found that I could not accept that such a horrible thing could happen to such a healthy, amazing young man. I had just watched a move, The Green Mile, and I so badly wanted the ability to heal others as the gentle giant in the movie was capable of that I could taste it. The main character in my first book, Forever Man, was born with Ellie Hightower having the satisfying ability to heal others. I lived the next months through her and found it slowly healed my own soul.

The Forever Series was born.

The epic series has now grown to five books with more to come. The journey is still a healing journey. I can only hope my two dear brothers, Don Prior and Garrel Prior, that have both been lost to cancer in the past few years are looking down. You were the best!

for stories of vampires and romance

So sorry to hear about your brothers. I have four brothers and don't know what I'd do without any of them. What a really great inspiration for your stories.

Thanks Linda. I also had four brothers. Of the two still with us, one is very ill with MS. Treasure every moment, they feel so brief once they are gone.

How terrible to lose the brothers who shared your childhood and young adult memories. One of the blessings in my husband and my lives as only children is the comfort we derive from knowing our three children have each other -- even if we are sometimes the common enemy
