Welcome, Mary. Please tells us about Postmarked Ever After.
A delayed letter and a message from afar unite two hearts.
Recently widowed, Serena Gray battles the daily drama of the Emergency Room, as well as her grief. When a mysterious letter arrives, it raises questions about a past she’d only heard her beloved husband speak about.
While on hospital rounds, a child has a brush with death and recounts a vivid dream that bears a message.
Will she risk happiness for the truth or keep a secret from the past?
How long did Postmarked Ever After take you to write?
It took about 4 months to write, but then the edits began. LOL
In what time of year is your story set? Is there any particular reason you choose that season or holiday?
Postmarked Ever After takes the reader through Thanksgiving and Christmas. The story revolves around learning to love again after a loss. Going through the holidays is often hard and challenges the healing process, so I thought it was an important aspect to be included in the book.
Do you write in any other genre’s?
All my novels are Inspirational, I write romance, suspense, and mystery.
What is next for you?
