In the beginning

December 30, 2013

There they stood, hand in hand, on the very edge of an unknown and unnamed universe mere moments after its birth. Swirls of multicolored dust and lights scattered and danced across a blank canvas. In what would be known as seconds, clouds of galaxies, bubbling over with new life smaller than a fleck, burst forth. In every direction, tiny diamond pinpoints raced ahead, signaling that this new creation was very pleased with how its makers had designed it.

The male, fresh-faced with an ageless appearance, looked over and smiled at the female. He watched her eyes shine and marvel at what they had just done. This same scene had replayed countless times, yet the joyous glow hovering upon her lovely cheeks always brought a renewed sensation of warmth fluttering within his chest. When they worked their magic together, every time was better than the first.

With the tip of his finger, he moved a lock of her hair and gently tucked it behind her ear.

“What shall we do now?”

It always pleased him to follow her lead. He lived to make her happy. His very existence hinged upon filling her heart with glee.

She turned to him, her gaze swimming with unspoken adoration.

“I think we should make…love.”

The corners of his mouth quirked into an impish grin.

“As you wish.”

Turning to face the new dawn and the endless horizons stretching out before them, together they strolled forth. Their flawless forms became smaller and smaller until they stood within the boundaries of the world they had just sculpted. As one, as always, they were ready and restless to explore the shores of their newest homeland.







How do you think it all began?


‘Into the wind we fly,

Eternally free, you and I…’

from Into the Wind by Lenise Lee

An Angel For Ms. Right was the very first romance I ever penned and published.  It was a tale written directly from my heart –touching on dramatic revelations, persistent doubt, and ultimately, refreshing hopes for a brighter tomorrow– an echo of my inner musings during a transitional time in my life.  It was a tale centered on first love and easily became my favorite romance to reflect on.  For two very important reasons – it was simple and sweet – Angel was the story I would look back to for a flash of inspiration every once in a while.  Now, years later, I find myself standing at this sacred place once again.  It is a return to the beginning – my beginning – to the quiet place where I found an innocent romance beating inside of me.  This is the sentiment I hoped to capture as I composed every element of Into the Windfaith, courage, inspiration…all of the reasons why true love is so very much worth the wait…for when it finally arrives…heaven and earth stand in awe of the moment.
