I'm busy working on my upcoming novel, The Letter, and, as with my other novels, I'm having a great time getting to know this cast of characters.
The Letter is a story of things not being as they appear. Stephanie and Danny, the two leading characters, are in a happy relationship until Stephanie accidentally uncovers a love letter from Martha, a woman from Danny's past. As the story continues, she'll discover even more compelling evidence. Convinced that Danny has been cheating on her, she abruptly ends their relationship, and with the start of a new job, she meets Josh. Unfortunately for Stephanie, Josh isn't who he appears to be.
The Letter is turning out to be more of a classic romance, much like The Reunion. The story is set in Denver, as was The Reunion, and look for Paul, one of the featured characters in The Reunion, to have a supporting role in The Letter.
The Letter is inspired by a real-life event which happened to a good friend when she accidentally came across a letter to her fiancé from his old girlfriend. The former girlfriend wanted him back, but she eventually moved on, and my friend and her fiancé have been happily married for many years. The challenge for me as a writer was the fact that this all happened before email, text messaging and social media, so the story would have to be adapted to 21st century technology.
Look for The Letter to be available in early 2018.
