Are you in the mood for a Romance/Mystery/Paranormal/Suspense Novel?

Have you read this romance/mystery/paranormal/suspense novel yet – How Far is Heaven? This story will grip you from page one and hold on tight to your mind until you finish it. You won’t want to put it down until you read the wonderful ending!

Sometimes we need to mix things up a bit by choosing a different kind of book to read. I like to jump around not only with my choices of reading material but also about writing.

I have written many different kinds of books – mysteries, suspense, thrillers, paranormal, clairvoyant, short stories in multi-genres, middle-grade/preteen/young adult, fantasy, romance. I even did a mild horror in my short story collection. The two genre I will never write about are zombies and vampires. They scare me half to death, that’s why. Though I did read and watch all of the Twilight series and liked them.

If you haven’t read How Far is Heaven yet check it out today for a little romance/mystery/paranormal activity and suspense. It will keep you turning pages and draw you in from the first page. Keep the tissues handy; you may need them.

I wrote this book many years ago when I had a dream about an angel. It kept nagging me to write the story, so I did. Most of my stories come from dreams white others come from something I may have seen or read about. Once I have a title to the story I can sit at my laptop and type away as the characters come to life and tell their story. It is an exhilarating feeling. Many times though I have to rein them in when they get too carried way in telling their story. There is always a strong and challenging character that likes to take over the story away from the other characters. I have to put his/her in their place to keep the story fair to the other characters.

You will notice that I like strong female characters. Many of my books feature a formidable woman as the main character. We woman are more resilient than we give ourselves credit for at times. It is our time to come out of our shells. I come out of my shell when I write about a tenacious woman who is not afraid to go after what she wants or protect what is hers. Do you like strong women characters in stories?

In How Far is Heaven Priscilla proves to be stronger than she thought she was capable of being. After you read the story ask yourself – Would I be as stalwart as Priscilla if I all the heartache she suffered had happened to me? I, for one, would doubt I could be. But, on the other hand, I suppose I could surprise myself. In tough times I may become stronger.
