In our world, the elusive "happily ever after" seems more a fairy tale fantasy than reality. Yet, ironically, the fairy tales of our youth weren't brimming with joy. They narrated tales of hardship, loss, and resilience—themes I explore in my modern-day fairy tales. In Entangled Dreams, I delve into these very trials, believing they make the joy of overcoming them all the sweeter.
The notion that a knight in shining armor (or sometimes a frog in disguise) can complete us is charming, yet life teaches us that happiness is often a solo journey, enriched by those we choose to share it with. Through trials, we seek support, grow in gratitude, and, ultimately, appreciate the beauty of the present.
In Entangled Dreams, my characters endure their own trials, embodying the struggles and triumphs we all face. They remind us that it's not about finding someone who completes us but rather someone who complements our growth. My stories are about flawed individuals who learn to trust, love, and forgive, navigating their paths to peace and fulfillment.
This narrative mirrors my own life story with my husband. We've made each other better, filling gaps and strengthening weaknesses. Together, we craft our version of "happily ever after."
If tales of growth, love, and redemption resonate with you, Entangled Dreams offers a modern spin on the fairy tale journey, celebrating the beauty of finding love, overcoming adversity, and the power of forgiveness. Read the entire series FREE with Kindle Unlimited!
