Happy Father’s Day to all the dads who have been there for their children. The dads who stepped up and took care of other dad’s kids, are special dads. My hope is that every dad has a special day on Father’s Day. If your dad is still with you, take a moment to thank him for being your dad on Father’s Day and everyday.
Not all dads can be celebrated on Father’s Day because they are no longer with us, but take a moment and think about him this day. My dad is one who is in heaven with Jesus and although I miss him, I would rather him to be with Jesus. Happy Father’s Day, Dad!! One day, when it’s time for me to come to heaven, I’ll get to see you again and that day will be celebrated forever.
Happy Father’s Day to my husband, Dave!! You have stepped into your role as a dad and have been exceptional role model to our boys. You came into their lives when they were older, but you’ve quickly showed them love and a godly influence they needed. Thank you, for all you do for us and allowing us to be truly loved by you.
Happy Father’s Day to my youngest son, Timothy!! Your baby boy will soon be here and I know you’ll love him with all your heart. Always allow God to lead you in your role model as a dad and you’ll never go wrong. I look forward to seeing you as dad and watching you grow into the father, I know you’ll become.
Happy Birthday to my first book, Last Heartbeat (March 27, 2014). How did four years go by so fast? It sure has been a blessing to share my book with all my friends and family. Hope that everyone who has taken the time to read, Last Heartbeat, has enjoyed my story as much as I have while writing it. While writing Last Heartbeat, I laughed and cried along with my characters as they came to life and during their ups and downs. I was scared to publish the story and sharing it with everyone. Knowing this story wasn’t for everyone, but to the people who love this type of story and genre, it’s for you, and that’s why I published Last Heartbeat.
What is Last Heartbeat about? It’s about young love and this love comes together after a battle for life. “Just hang on a little longer…” There is heartache and pain that ends in happily ever after. I was sitting and thinking about my dad and his heart condition one day, wondering why the doctors never mentioning heart transplant. Then suddenly a story began developing inside my head that I had to write. No, my dad never did get a heart transplant because he didn’t fit the criteria, and now has went home to heaven. My dad was proud of me for writing my novels and told everyone about them, even took some books for me and sold them. Yes, Last Heartbeat is about a fictional but real life heart transplant recipient, who struggles to get her life back and to live a normal life. She strives to live a normal life that leads her to have a special connection with a guy, and that connection goes beyond what you normally think.
Alexia has fought hard to over come a tragic illness in her past. Barely getting on with her life, she finally leaves home to enter the real world. This first big step makes her appreciate all that she has struggled with. This next step in her life, also leads her to a possible heartbreak. How can Alexia keep up with all of her struggles and keep going on?
Phillip has lost someone close to him when he was younger. This person was the most important person in his life. He has struggled to get past this loss, and once he does, he finds out something about his favorite person that makes him feel the hurt all over again. Why can’t Phillip move on for good? Can he really forgive someone in the past, if they no longer live?
A chance meeting has Alexia and Phillip spending hours talking. This sparks an attraction for each other. Every day, running into each other makes the attraction grow stronger until they finally give in to it. When another accident strikes, both of their pasts come barreling back to haunt them. Can they move forward knowing the secrets they now know about one another? How much more can two broken people endure? Will they find their way back into one another’s arms or have they finally come to a breaking point in life?
Here is a book trailer for Last Heartbeat, hope you enjoy. Click on the link below.
Last Heartbeat was supposed to end up as a standalone book, but the other characters in the story would not keep quite, and they made me end up writing two more books in the series, The Life Gift (second book) and One More Life (third book). I still have one more story in this series that needs to be written and have started it but life threw me some curve balls so I’m behind on writing. Check out this link here to read about what happened. Where has T R Lykins gone….
Even in the darkest of days, I found out that God was with me and had a plan for me. I could not see it at the time, but now I see it perfectly clear. God opened my eyes (Acts chapter 9 versus 3 to 6) and my heart. To read all about what God has blessed me with click on this link. Merry Christmas and God bless all…

Hope everyone has patience with me until I get back to writing and the next part of my journey in life. I will be writing in the future under my new name and not my pen name T R Lykins so stay tuned.

Everyone has their own quirks but fourteen-year-old Phoebe and sixteen-year-old Lucian certainly have more than most. Drawn together by their mutual loneliness and their diametrically opposed characters they are lured to the strange island of Ravenala where they encounter monstrous ghost creatures, shocking secrets and the most charming and outrageous of all beings, the Lonx, short for Delonix Strobilantes. Dragged into their world and their problems, Phoebe and Lucian experience threatening adventures and simultaneously their first love, which is put to the test by Phoebe’s family as well as the Lonx.
Will Phoebe and Lucian succeed in saving their new friends? But more importantly, can they save each other and their love?
Once in awhile, we can be blessed with a friend you can count on to be there and listen, even if you are miles from each other. I have been blessed with my friend, Author Elke Stevens. As you all know and have read my previous post, I went through some tough times last year. Elke was there for me, even while we are miles apart. She listened, while I cried to her, and helped me to become stronger. Her support kept me smiling when my days were dark and stormy. God knew I needed a special friend to listen to me and He sent Elke into my life a few years ago.
Elke has been a true blessing to me in many ways. First, I came across her through her wonderful stories (The Arash Series), and I messaged her to let her know how much I loved the stories. That’s all it took to become friends with this wonderful person. Second, we support each other in our writing journey, by encouraging each other and pushing each other to keep writing. Yes, I encouraged Elke to write her newly released book Eviternity (An Arash Series Novel). I was surprised by Elke when I received a package in the mail, and when I opened it, there was the book, I knew she could write. Elke even dedicated the book to me, now you see why I love her so much. Thirdly, we have a lot in common since our kids (who are now adults) are the same age. We really have stories to talk about when it comes to those young ones.
I can go on and on and on with the many reasons why I am blessed to know Elke Stevens, but I wanted to share her wonderful novels with you. You will love her series as much as I do and while they are on sale, buy them. Really buy these books, because they will have you glued to every page!! To make it easy, I’ll add the link below. Happy Reading Everyone!!! Share Elke’s newly released novel, Eviternity.
