Faint of heart

Love is not for the faint of heart. Shadows of ourselves exist when we lose love; we cling to those shadows. So love is never really lost, it’s simply locked away until we choose to bring it back–maybe toy with it for a while–maybe revel in the pain of it.  Or if we’re lucky, enjoy it.

It was difficult deciding what to do about Paula (a character in Shark’s Breath), about her love-what it made her do. Writing her experiences was wrenching and I wrote and deleted, wrote and deleted–hope you’ll like what she does–or maybe not. Shark’s Breath will be out in a month–check it out. You tell me, ye faint of heart lovers.

    My sidekick friend and I have not been able to go to Topsail for a couple of years for different personal reasons. We certainly miss it and hope we can go this summer. We always enjoy seeing you and getting your books and visiting the Mermaid Purse.
    Your books always bring the Island alive and they are educational too.
