Reconnect Over The Holidays

The holidays are a special time of the year.  The music and holiday movies remind us of the importance of our friends and family.  

As our lives get busier, we can easily lose the connection with others.  Although often it’s not intentional, before we know it, years have passed since we last spent time together.

Yesterday we were able to arrange a visit with a friend whom we hadn’t seen in a few years.  We had worked together on a project that concluded over a decade ago and had just lost touch.  We spent a delightful afternoon reminiscing and reconnecting.  We had to catch each other up with the details of our lives and loved ones, but the feeling was the same.  It was just as no time had passed between us.  

Recently, I thought about our friends as I gathered together addresses to mail our Christmas cards.  Fond memories rolled across the stage of my mind and I have committed to reach out this coming year.   

I do recognize that there are some people who come and go in our lives and our time together is a short season.  Those are not the ones that I am referring to.  Instead, I am talking about those people who we often think about but don’t seem to get around to sending that email or text.  Even a short message on social media will let them know you are thinking about them.

Take time in this busy season to reach out to someone who you haven’t seen or talked to for some time.  May your holiday season be filled with joy.

Announcing that I have finished a book with the working title of “The Fairy Fort.” I am currently pitching it to publishers. Keep checking back to watch the progress of my newest novel.

Here is a quick glimpse of the story.

Sarah Doherty is an 18-year-old living in rural Ireland at the tail end of the Great War. Plagued by severe epilepsy, she is protected by her parents and lives a sheltered, secluded, lonely life. The Fae, local Irish fairies, interfere with her life. She falls forward a century in time through the local fairy fort of standing stones. She had a seizure in 1918 and woke up in 2020. The 21st century world includes life-saving prescriptions, physical comforts and the independence and freedom she seeks. The locals are welcoming and Andy Mclaughlin, a handsome young historian, is intriguing. She doesn’t want to return home.

Then a letter arrives from Boston divulging the story of Sarah and Andy’s lives that are deeply entwined in the previous century. They are not yet in love but as they seek to verify the letter through online resources, they feel a growing obligation to their unborn family and to each other. What would happen to their posterity living in Boston if they don’t return to 1918? Even if they do make it back, her parents can never know what happened to her or that would change everything.

This Young Adult time-travel romance explores the question: Do we have the freedom to make choices or is free will an elaborate illusion?

This is my third book. I love reading time travel romances. I am an advocate for epilepsy awareness because my 43-year-old son has intractable epilepsy. As a genealogist specializing in Irish research, I live part of the year in the village where the story is based. I wrote the book to help young adults understand that difficult situations can change your life. Sometimes miraculously.
