When a character calls out to you from the realm of your imagination and insists you tell their story, it’s like magic. Nothing can beat the rush that comes with the exploration of new characters and their world. True fun also comes into play when these revelations take you in an unexpected direction from what you normally write.
This happened to me with Tessa of HART’S CHOICE. What had began as a short story became a novella and has the potential of one day becoming a full length novel—a project I may revisit.
My wish is that all can enjoy this story of life, with its highs and lows, celebrations and losses. I hope you find this story as touching as I did and love the journey.
Please also know that all proceeds from the sale of this novella will be donated in memoriam of my father-in-law, William Arnold, to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
Donate Directly, and/or buy your copy of HART'S CHOICE to support this worthwhile cause and get a story I just fell in love with while writing it.
Tessa pursued her love of dance and found herself a ballerina in the 1962 production of The Nutcracker in New York City. But she still thought of Barry.
Reunited nearly a decade later, only to be ripped apart by war and loss, Tessa wonders if they will ever be together and dreams fulfilled.
