About this title


Alexis has had big dreams all her life, and she’s worked hard to make them happen! After college, she married and had a beautiful baby boy, living her dream as “Mommy” until Colton was safely entrenched in grade school. She lands her dream job at NASA, and her supportive husband, Jay, takes the lead on raising their son. The perfect family, right? Twelve years later with no warning and no reason, Jay commits suicide. Colton goes into denial and blames his mother; Alexis buries herself in her work. Seven months later, Alexis’s biggest dream comes true. She’s going to be on the next space shuttle! Her victory is short-lived when she finds out she has breast cancer. As her health declines, Colton delves into the dangerous circumstances of his father’s death. “Family Secrets” crept into Alexis’s life when she wasn’t paying attention. Will she and her son ever find out the truth? Or is it too late?

From the Author:

This is my third novel, but the first book of a series. It is different than I usually write, but still has some mystery and suspense, with a hint of contemporary women's fiction. I had an idea when I first started writing this novel, but half way through, I just knew it wouldn't work because then the book would have been at least 200,000 words long. 
So, instead I have broken the book into a series of different stories using characters from the book before. If they are mentioned in the first book, then they'll have their own book in the series. 
I know this is supposed to be a review, but as I am the writer of the book, I would think it is frowned upon, so I thought I'd just write to my readers and tell them a little about why I wrote the book and what is to come in my writing career.

The book is dedicated to two wonderful people in my life. The first person, a dear friend and like my second mom, had battled breast cancer, and has recently left our world battling Pancreatic cancer.
The second person is my best friend who I had asked personal things and not so personal. I wrote a story as if she could have picked her life what would she want her name to be, where she wanted to work, and do with her life. 

The results are a 90,000 word book. A little true, but most fiction. So, sit back and enjoy this story of grief, battling breast cancer, forgiveness, and of course, love.
