Behind the scenes: Several of my friends who read and loved my upcoming clean romance, Married to the Sea, begged me to tell them more about the lives of the exciting characters in the book. I started on a short story about Maude and Bill, the kindly older couple who always have a treasure trove of wisdom and trivia to share, and I found that their life is much too big for a short story. I think it's so good it's even going to be the next novel! So who else could I write about? And then it was so obvious. I remembered how much Jacob liked butterflies, and how much Emily liked Jacob, and a short story just flowed right out. So, here is a glimpse into the world of Married to the Sea even before the novel is released!
