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?

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.

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…
