We never know what today will bring.

Every day when we wake up, it is a clean slate. Oh we have made plans and scheduled events, but as my mom always told me, “man proposes, God disposes!”

Nick woke us up last night at about 2 am coughing and sneezing. We did get back to sleep after a little while, but this morning it was obvious that a Hospital Emergency Room visit was now on our schedule. His breathing was labored and he was lethargic.

The priorities of the day immediately shifted and we quickly got ready to go to the hospital.

On the way Nick asked for the radio to be on. It was a nice distraction. The second song was ‘The Dance.” By Garth Brooks. This particular song is a sort of anthem to Nick and our family. Nick loves it. I felt great comfort at that moment. It was one of those situations, too amazing to be mere coincidence. I felt like God was telling us that He was aware of Nick and of Arden and I in the midst of this stressful time.

It is important to plan and schedule otherwise it would be difficult to navigate all the things we need to do in our modern world but sometimes we are reminded that control is an illusion and all we really have is the present moment.

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.
