The Power of Books

The email that I continue to get regarding both my books TOTAL BLISS and WITH THIS RING is amazing. I get all kinds of reader email telling me stories about their own personal quest to find their prince charming.

I really get alot of email about Rose Hart the heroine of WITH THIS RING. Some of the emails bring tears to my eyes. I can't believe how much Rose's personality, physical appearance mirrors many of my readers.

I hadn't realized how much the words we authors write touch the lives of others. I guess that's part of the ministry of a writer. To tell the story that is so vivid that the reader relates.

How awesome is that. Can you think of a book that reminds you of a situation in your life or a person. Tell me your thoughts.

Congrats, Sean! That's the beauty of a great book. It's timeless and it touches so many. Congrats on writing novels that touch readers so deeply. It's not an easy thing to do.

I really like your personality and if your writing is anything like it I'm sure you do the same thing.
It's so interesting that people remember me even though I haven't had a published book in 2 years.
