Books are an important part of life. This is where we learn and grow. Many times our everyday lives can overwhelm us and we desperately need a break. Being a wife, mother, and homemaker can be a challenge and some days are discouraging. That's the time when we would like to enter the world of "Make-Believe." Perhaps after doing the dishes, changing a diaper, and putting the kids down for a nap, there is time to read a novel and slip into that make-believe world; a world of escape when our frustrations are high and we need some quiet time just to relax. In that little corner is a world that can fill us with wonder, where dreams can come true, where we can go on an adventure, or even fall in love all over again.
Lucy Montgomery once said, "While solitude with dreams is glorious, solitude without them has few charms." Jerome Kern had a similar feeling. He wrote, "The game of just supposing is the sweetest game I know. Our dreams are more romantic than the world we see." Perhaps the world we see is full of dirty dishes, soiled diapers, and arguing teenagers. After a big day, curl up with a book and enter the Make-Believe World of fantasy and adventure. Remember that "if the things we dream about don't happen to be so, that's just an unimportant technicality."
I enjoy writing stories that have adventure and romance with good old fashioned values.
