Title: A Right to Remain

Cover Artist: RE Creatives

He had a right to remain suffocated by his pain.
She had a right to remain silent about hers.

For better or for worse. 
Those were the vows that I had taken with my wife six years ago. We had lived through the better and were barely getting through the worse. I tried to face our loss together, while she chose to have an affair instead.
Time apart was what we both needed.
What I didn’t expect in that time was her.
The beauty she possessed on the outside was a far cry from the scars she was harboring on the inside. She wasn’t looking for love and neither was I. She just needed someone to help her deal with the pain she had been carrying around for the past two years, and I was happy to oblige.
I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with her, but suddenly I was seeing a future that I never dreamed of right in front of my eyes….only to find that the past had other things in mind for us.


I always believed that we only got one true love in life, and mine was gone and never coming back.
Through the tear-filled nights and never ending days, I was slowly and tortuously coming to terms with the pain that was my reality.
And then he entered my life.
Tall, handsome, genuine and caring, he was a friend when I needed one most. Together, we were a temporary fix to our own permanent pain. Just two people helping each other to get through a very dark period in life.
But when the light begins to shine ever so slightly with each passing day, and his face is all I can see at the end of that tunnel… I run back into the darkness or move into the light with him?

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned series, Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, Three of a Kind series, and Easy Silence.
My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon!
Thanks for taking the time to learn about my books and me! If you decide to read them (and I hope you do!) please be sure to go on and review it for me - yes, even if you don't like it!




After three long months of not seeing my bookish besties, we're finally gathered once again for the book signing tour of NewYork Times Bestselling author of Red Queen, Victoria Aveyard! I didn't realize how much I missed them until I saw them again!

Here are some of the things that Victoria shared with us:
  • Victoria advised aspiring writers that you have to finish your first draft. Write the end at the end and don't edit much along the way. You can give yourself the benefit of a doubt.
  • When she was asked about the sequence of how she writes, she said that for Red Queen, she started with the main character then the world building. But usually, the latter comes first and the character is what makes readers stay in a story.
  • Red Queen was supposed to be a duology at first, but then Victoria thought she need more. Three books would be rush, she thought. So she went back to Harper and said she needed another book.
  • Universal Studios has the screen option for Red Queen. The screen writer is Jennifer _______ (Sorry I didn't hear her last name clearly).
  • Her favorite fantasy novels:
    • 1. Lord of the Rings trilogy
    • 2. Harry Potter series
    • 3. A Song of Ice and Fire series
  • She learned pretty much every story-telling trick from film school.
  • For her, the entire middle part of Red Queen is the most difficult part to write because it's more about build up.
  • She did a lot of Google translation of English-Latin for Red Queen.
  • The third book will start immediately where Glass Sword ends.
  • VA said, "I definitely want to write until the day I die." *laughs*
  • After writing the fourth book, she might go back into screenplay writing for the mean time before she started with her next book.
  • When asked about the feminism in Red Queen, she said that she's a feminist so it's normal to write about a woman or treating men and women equally.
  • She naturally likes genre mashups: Dystopia, fantasy and science fiction.
  • On what to expect of Mare on the 3rd and 4th books? More of her emotional journey.
With the Queen V!
