“Emma stuck her face to the window to watch the rain. Lightning in the background drew a fiery specter in the sky while her eyes traced the water droplets running down the pane like tears.” Emma Willis is ten years old and has a secret. She not only inherited her grandmother’s power of sight, she can accomplish much more. Like most children without siblings growing up amongst adults, she is precocious yet at times lonely. When a murderer is loose in Newark, a maniac with a thirst for killing little girls, she begins to understand why her Granny Dottie called her sight a curse. She will need all her powers to catch a killer and help the people in her life: Detective Hank Apple, her teacher Christina Tyler, and her little family of three. Only…the madman knows who she is!

Romance, yes!

I first started to read I was 7 years old, in French. I had a dictionary beside me for all those difficult words, and though sometimes finding the word in the dictionary was the real task at hand, I was never disappointed when I did. French was my first language and I can safely say every book I read whether it was one of the classics or a simple teenage jerker, the stories all revolved around romance. Far from being a French thing, I soon found out the theme possessed universal cachet. In fact, when I began reading in English with a dictionary beside me to decipher all the nuances, I discovered romance flourished everywhere.

Even under rocks as in the mere threads of affection weaved through the drama of someone’s autobiography. I clung to the sweet lifeline as a means to understand cause, effect, and reason. In other words, a sentimental journey was my mapped-out route to get an angle on the moral of a story.

This is why you will always find love in the books I write no matter how creepy or supernatural the main plot and subplots claim to be. I believe in romance being the spoon-full-of-sugar that makes the medicine go down—the medicine being the telltale troubles we drum up for ourselves whenever we need a thrust to teach us which road to take and which one to avoid.

Don’t get me wrong. Romance doesn’t reside solely within the penned words filling chapters of a book. You’ll find love in the bright young eyes after a first kiss, the long silent sigh of someone learning to trust, the heart thumping at the sight of a tender half, and in the tears of someone needing to forgive. Romance is at the heart of every story because love is the beginning and the end of every journey.
