Perfect Need—Seven Tales of Love and Passion
Close your eyes, Fall in love. Stay there. ~ Rumi
Rumi knew everything about love. To me, this quote is the perfect description of how I write and how I fall in love. It's a mystery, a thrill, an adventure—every time.
You never know who you'll fall in love with, or why, or whether it's a good idea. Ask Rowan in A Star, A Stone. How could you ever anticipate the wonder, the inspiration being in love can bring. An Unbearable Brightness explores that light. A sudden rainstorm - Stormy Weather - or even an exercise class - The Queen of Heaven - can be the spark that creates abandon and passion between two lovers. In Dolce, a full-course Italian meal prepared with love whets . . . other appetites.
My stories are explorations of what love and passion can become, how they can affect two people for a moment, or for a lifetime. When they close their eyes, literally or not; when they tumble into a love they never expected; when they decide it's worth the risk to stay . . . or not.
