I’m very excited to share the news that Book 2 of the Sworn Sister Series, “Sworn to Remember,” will be released on May 15, 2019.

The series is about four high school girlfriends, who are now in their early thirties. Each woman has her own story to tell as she deals with life, love, loss and friendship amidst the crisis of the moment. I hope you will see your girlfriends in these books and remember the good and bad times as well as the comfort that only girlfriends can give.

In “Sworn to Remember” you will meet Samantha, a divorce lawyer from NYC who learns that her husband is having an affair with his co-worker. Needing time away to pull it together, she finds herself in the Jersey shore town of Crescent Beach for a well-needed sabbatical, where she runs into her high school crush, the local prosecutor.

I hope you will enjoy Sam’s journey through healing and toward love by learning that balance in her life is more important than her former workaholic ways.

The Long Road to “Sworn to Remember”

Posted at May 14, 2019 8:57 pm

“Sworn to Remember” is being released tomorrow, May 15, 2019, which is about 16 years from when I first wrote a version of this book. Back then, it was titled “Weekend Diaries” and in 2003 it won the NJ Romance Writers Put Your Heart In a Book Contest. As a result, I signed with an agent and thought this book would launch my career as a romance novelist.

Unfortunately, it did not. My dream faded with each rejection and I moved on to write another manuscript and another. It wasn’t until 2013 that I signed my first contract with The Wild Rose Press and it was for the fifth manuscript that I wrote, entitled “Unchained Memories.” I went on to have “Dancing in the Sand” published, but I could never let go of “Weekend Diaries,” Samantha’s story.  So I went back, took it apart, turned it into a four-book series, and gave each of Sam’s girlfriends their own story. Oddly, book one of The Sworn Sisters Series wasn’t Sam’s story, but Nicki’s. After waiting for over 16 years, Sam still had to wait! 

Until now. So with breath held and fingers crossed, Sam’s story is entering the world in a few hours. Maybe 16 years is the charm.
