Why Happily Ever After?

I’ve read a lot of great books that end in tragedy. Books I loved, that were extremely well written, but for me, it’s not over until it is happily over. The way I see it, real life can be tough enough. All you have to do is look around to see someone suffering, but at heart, I’m an optimist. I like to believe everything works out in the end, and I don’t want to leave people on a down note. In my world, the evil villain will get what is coming to them. The guy will come to his senses and swear undying love. There won’t be sickness or money issues as they move into the house with the white picket fence.

It’s my way of holding onto the hope that no matter how bad it gets, if you dig deep and keep going, it will work out. Maybe it’s unrealistic, but until I’m dead and buried, I’ll be waiting for my own happily ever after.


  1. I love your Keepers series..I just fished book 3 and I am waiting not so patiently for book 4 . :). I love you as an author because of your comment about wanting a happily ever after…The HEA is what helps me pick authors for my bookshelf. Jayne Krentz/Castle, Amanda Quick, Ilona Andrews, Jeanine Frost,; they all write amazing books that I purchase because they have awesome worlds with funny amazing characters that grow and yet stay connected; and although bad things happen, etc they still manage to bring about a happily ever after. If I wanted drama and sadness I would read Jodi Picoult,,,no offense but I don’t read her..ever.. Thank you for your outlook and your amazing books….I can’t wait to add all of them to my bookshelf 🙂

      Thank you so much! Yeah, I’m a sucker for HEA : ) It might be a bit of a spoiler for all my books to come but I can’t imagine ever not writing in that happy ending. I’m the same way. I don’t even like to read an unhappy ending. I’ve gotten tricked a couple of times and it wasn’t pleasant, lol.
