Love Hurts. Love Kills. Love Redeems. The Darkness of Love.
Those are the titles of my first four published novels. Does that tell you a little bit about my experiences of being in love? I think so. Now, before you get all sympathetic, let me tell you that I am actually happily married. It isn’t perfect, but it is real love, of that I am sure. My husband loves me, and I love him. We love our children. We love our dog (who is our third child). We love our friends and family. Heck, I love the whole world!
All of my stories have elements of love within them. It is the thing that consumes me every day, whether I am consciously aware of this fact, or not. Everything that I do for my husband and my children is born of my love for them. Love just is. Simple as that. It is a force that you cannot describe, and it exists in many different forms. My novels and short stories centre around romantic love between characters, and mutual love between friends and family members. It is equally important either way. Just like in real life.
See you tomorrow, for the next letter in the #AtoZChallenge.
