We are delighted to welcomeas she shares some of her favourite quotes from her newly released contemporary romance, Echoes In The Glass.
Finnian bears the scar of an unspeakable crime.
McKenna hides the pain of a terrible betrayal.
When all their secrets are laid bare, will the truth rip them apart or forever silence the echoes of the past?
Seventeen-year-old Finnian Bell has been on the run for years, but he finally has a chance to rebuild his life while restoring an abandoned lighthouse on the Oregon Coast. McKenna Lucas, the lightkeeper’s daughter, is still reeling from the pain of an event that has shattered her innocence. Fear and bitterness have turned her heart from Finnian, but he is determined not to let her go. The lighthouse harbors dark secrets of its own…When Finnian and McKenna uncover the story of two teens hidden in the tower back in 1934, they discover a shocking connection that bridges time and death.
Quote 3: They stayed that way.
Without moving or breathing. A moment when there was no world outside the space between them. He felt wrapped around and within her in a place of beginning and forgetting.
To me, this is what love feels like. The whole world can just fade away and all you see is the one who loves you. With this line, I desperately wanted to capture just a glimpse of what that feels like for my main character, Finnian Bell. He has come through so much to get to this moment in his journey. Most of my beta readers have shed some tears at this point in the story, knowing everything these two characters have been through.
Quote 4: He let go and rubbed his chest, where the gaping hole of grief that had filled his waking hours was both filling and emptying at the same time.
This is probably not the most eloquent of lines, but it was my feeble attempt to capture what was going through Finnian’s mind at the most heartbreaking moment in this novel. I had tears streaming down my face as I wrote it because, at the time, I knew exactly what he feels like as he learns the truth about the two people he loves most: one was an answer to his prayers and the other the revelation of a terrible crime. At this moment, I wasn’t writing Finnian, I was him, and my heart broke alongside his.
