Sometimes the road love takes a detour…
It’s been 10 years since Wren’s parents were killed in a car accident, leaving her and her brother behind. Wren’s life has been spiraling downward ever since. She’s trapped in an abusive marriage, her career as an artist has never had a chance to flourish, and all of her hope is gone. If she doesn’t break away from all that’s dragging her down, she’s afraid she’ll never escape it.
She turns to her lifelong friend, Maddox, the only person who’s been there for her through it all. He helps her understand her own strength so she can finally begin making bold changes in her life. But falling in love with him was never part of the plan.
When their forbidden relationship jeopardizes everything Wren has worked for, will anyone be left standing by her side?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write an imperfect girl, going through real life struggle. Characters that are true to the human condition of struggle, muddling their way through life hoping they get it right.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Many of my characters are a reflection of the people I know. I pick and choose different character traits and mannerisms to build robust and believable characters.
Maddox looks at me and runs his finger up my cheek, catching a tear. He holds it on his index finger, “This right here is a tear of hope and happiness. Let's have that be the only thing you feel right now.” He smiles and moves his finger closer to me. “Now, make a wish and blow.”
He has always known how to make me feel better, even in the darkest of times. I want to wish for something good, not something stupid like winning the lottery or selling a painting. It should mean something, like this moment. This short span of time will fuel me for months to come, knowing that someone believes in me and really cares about me. I wish this moment would never end. I blow the tear off his finger and smile.
