A Farewell to Bridget

Writing gets under the skin, in the blood. The passion of creation usurps thought and blocks reality in pursuit of the immortal make-believe. A writer’s mind isn’t filled with worry, but with whimsy. She understands eternity, because she knows even when her body takes its last breath, her words live on.

I think Bridget understood this.

And her offspring, the product of whimsy and words, carries on…becomes life and legacy.

Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she's the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom's future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.
But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart…misses.
Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king's army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she's not alone. She's armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can't stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?
Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she's certainly no damsel-in-distress—she's the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

    1. Our books are as much a part of us as our children. In those pages are her thoughts, her words, and her dreams. It's a powerful thing to leave behind.

    1. I agree. When my brother passed on, my mom took great comfort in reading tributes to him, so hopefully all the posts will be a hug for them.
