April 08, 2013I'm on deadline for my third novel and I just realized -- just realized -- why I write books.
I write books because . . . life is messy. And I write stories that wade into that mess. Stories about how we make a mess of our lives . . . or someone else messes up or lives . . .
and yet, there is still hope.
There is redemption.
There is the reality of "But God . . . " in the midst of the mess.
Life is messy.
Romance is messy.
And that's why I write books.
Because, as I like to say, there's more to the Happily Ever After than the Fairy Tales tell us.
