Blogs

For some reason, I haven't been able to post to my main blog for a few weeks.

Until I can figure out why, I've set up another blog at blogspot. Click here for my latest ramblings.

Like everyone else, I've been swamped lately. I'm spending several hours a day writing, plus trying to get a few other things under control.

The strangest thing happened today. A friend sent me a link. Please understand, I do take things like this very seriously. My heart does go out to Olivia. I can't imagine what she must be going through. With that said...that's my latest WIP. Husband disappears off their fishing boat. In this case, it's pre-season, so it's a test run. No one is onboard with him. He disappears. Five years later he returns.

Imagine how you'd feel. Your husband, disappears. Everything points to a tragic death. You've spent five years believing you were a widow. You were madly in love with him. You've prayed, or whatever your method is, for one more chance to see him. All you want is the chance to tell him how much you love him. Then one day, out of the blue, he returns.

Are you happy? This is the love of your life. Of course, you are. That is until it hits you that he's alive, meaning he didn't die on you, he walked out on you.

As I read the article, all those things that my character have had to face flashed through my mind. How will Olivia's story unfold? I don't know, but I honestly hope there's a happy ending for her.

    I feel for Olivia, too, and I can't wait to see how this unfolds. Hope it has a happy ending.

    And I love the premise of your story. Makes me think of "Move Over Darling" with Doris Day.

    Another favorite movie with a disappearing spouse on a more serious note is "Sleeping with the Enemy." Still gives me chills.

    I hope it has a happy ending, too. Doesn't sound too encouraging. I have always admired her...it's a shame.

    Oh man, "Sleeping with the Enemy," what a movie that was. That guy was so sinister looking.

    Jody, sounds like your book fits right into what's happening right now...go for it!
