This is the day an author eagerly awaits when writing a novel. That day when the characters she’s lived with for months step out into the world to meet their new readers. It’s a little like raising pups until they’re old enough to go to their new families.
Check out this completely unbiased endorsement. 😉
Speaking of pups… Mark gives a stray dog a home in Enduring Dreams. This is how I pictured her:
Claire Kingsley once dared to assert herself into the male world of 1890s architecture. It cost her husband both his life and an heir. Now fear controls her choices and her dreams. When offered a chance to create another design, she fights against the pull, afraid of further disaster. But disturbing news ignites a fierce loyalty to her past love and a powerful attraction to a new one—an attraction she resists…for his sake.
Mark Gregory’s first architectural project in town comes with the proviso that he works with a female. He balks, even though Claire stirs his heart like no other woman. Yet, with a loan payment looming, risking his business on someone of unknown talent invites failure, a word he’s struck from his vocabulary. When bigotry and Claire’s fears threaten an important commission, will she summon the courage to help Mark succeed, or will she destroy another man’s dream?
