About The Book

In this Memory of After e-short story, Felicia and Neil share their favorite memories of falling in love with each other.

In the Memory Chronicles e-short story collection, The Best Things In Death, Felicia explores memories dealing with love, loss, and joy. Pulled from the minds of characters from The Memory of After and Chasing Before, the memories reveal a simple truth: the best things in life are, indeed, free.
