I felt a little funny when I saw that the release date for Marriage at Circle M was 9/11. I kept thinking, can that be right? Shouldn't it be the day before or after? It just felt disrespectful knowing that my book was coming out on this particular date.
But you know, the whole point I think is that LIFE GOES ON. As much as we should never ever forget, we owe to those people to live life. And in a way, it was 9/11 that made Marriage at Circle M possible.
A lot of you probably know this but I had a very difficult time after the birth of my youngest. I was just getting my feet beneath me again when the planes hit the twin towers and I made the mistake of watching too MUCH news...and it really really affected me.
It was a month later that I was home visiting family and really feeling quite raw about it all and my sister suggested I put my energies into writing. November of 2001 was when my writing journey began. And today, my second Harlequin Romance hits the shelves.
