I'm finding that as I write my second book, I am a lot more emotional than I was with the first. I know it's probably because the storyline is more somber than "Cutting Through" was at the beginning. I mean I get misty eyed thinking about the prologue, and was wiping tears from my cheeks as I wrote chapter three. I have thankfully never experienced the type of lose that my characters have faced, so to try to share with you their stories is a challenge. I'm hoping that having these personal reaction as I write are a sign that I am doing them justice. I want the reader to feel the pain and heartache that Maggie is going through. I think it's important that they can connect with her emotionally. I want my characters to feel like real people, and not just a fictitious cast. People have said that Janie and Jake were relatable characters, so I'm hoping you'll feel the same way about Maggie and Drew.
