GENRE: Paranormal Romance
When skeptic Marvin meets artistic Natalie in a coffee shop on a cold October morning, the two fall fast in love, but nothing is ever as easy as it feels.
Natalie believes that a divine something is guiding her life for her greater good, and it seems to be true. She lands her dream job and she and Marvin marry at a beachside castle. However, the ease and flow of their lives start to change. At the same time that Natalie becomes pregnant, Marvin experiences strange symptoms and visits his doctor.
When faced with a diagnosis that changes everything and odd dreams of the child that hasn’t yet been born, will Marvin let go of his skepticism or will he miss out on a lifetime with his loving family?
They walk through the archway and the dancing roses appear to be just what Talie said it would be. The roses grow in such a fashion that they dance with the breeze and the aroma in the garden is what love would smell like if there were such a scent associated with it. There are thousands of vibrant colored roses up and down in rows and they do not look like typical rose bushes. The stems of the roses are different, stronger, and able to uphold the bud. Almost any color that can be thought of is here, including purple, red, blue, yellow, rainbow, black, turquoise, white, pink, orange, two and three tone colors, and a bright red-orange sparkling rose. “Who owns this place?” Marvin asks. “There’s a plaque with the owner’s name on it over here,” Talie says leading the way. The memorial reads: Jonathan Rutherford and Ellen Campanilli Rutherford established “Roses of the Garden” in 1913. “Wow,” Marvin says, “They must have some secret formula regarding horticulture because I’ve never seen such roses!”
What group did you hang out with in high school?
A small group of friends. I wasn’t in any kind of clique; I was just me.
What are you passionate about these days?
Being more aware of what I do and how it impacts the earth like using so much plastic. Plastic is a big topic lately. I recycle and am currently looking into getting more silicon bags instead of continuing with single-use plastic bags. I’m also passionate about making a difference in people’s lives. I want to be kind to everyone no matter how they present themselves. Sometimes deep pain is disguised as something else and I’ve learned that most of what someone does is not even about me, but about themselves.
If you had to do your journey to getting published all over again, what would you do differently?
I’m not sure because each book is different and I’m constantly evolving, so I’m not the same person I was even a year ago.
Ebook or print? And why?
I love holding a book while reading but I love the option of both because I read both. It depends on where I am and if I want the book right now! I love technology and that it allows me to have a book or music or whatever else right at that moment that I want it.
What is your favorite scene in this book?
When Marvin meets his child and gives in to his resistance of thinking so rigidly.
