What lengths would you go to for love? A terminally ill heiress trying to make the most of what little time she has left and a suave mobster on the run from the executioners electric chair, meet and fall in love on a trans-pacific crossing from San Francisco to Tokyo, each without knowing the other’s tragic secret. Little do they know, they are each journeying toward their doomed fate while cheerfully masquerading under ballroom lights, breezy late night dinners, cocktails conversations, and a whirlwind shore excursion in Hawaii. Along the way, they encounter a cast of characters who help bring them together and who seek to drive them apart. Communicating their inner most thoughts and desires through letters slipped under each other’s cabin door, their bond becomes deeper than anything that they have ever known. The clock is ticking… they have weeks to find happiness in each other’s arms.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I enjoy reading historical fiction and wanted to try my hand at writing my own historical novel. The era this book takes place in happens to one of my favorite time periods in history. Additionally, I wanted to write a book that focused on the themes of life, death, love, and learning to live in the moment. Time is short, as is life, and I wanted to write a book where the characters were having to grapple with difficult decisions while they were examining their own lives, mistakes, and past choices.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Some of my characters are based on real life people and struggles that they have had to deal with. Other characters are placed in the story because I wanted there to be flawed yet lovable people in the book. These characters show that you can make mistakes but still have redeeming qualities. Additionally, these characters make the reader think about morality, fate, and choices.
