Hold Me Tight
I had fun writing the second book in The Reid Family Legacy. I’ve enjoyed watching Evelyn grow into a strong, independent woman who still keeps her values. In addition, a while back I read an article of an actor who isolated himself because of all the pain he had experienced in life. I felt bad for this person because he was missing out on life and people weren’t able to fully connect with him. Everyone was losing out on relationships. When all is said and done relationships are the lasting value in life. Closing yourself off from the world so you won’t experience emotional pain can cause more pain. This sad situation became the inspiration for the character of William, Evelyn’s co-star in her next movie.
I don’t want to give away all of my surprises but here is a glimpse into the plot.
It was 1946 and Evelyn’s life was better than she could have dreamed. She found Hollywood fame and was falling in love with Sterling, her boyfriend and talent agent. When Evelyn was offered a new role as the female lead in an upcoming movie, things started to change. As a requirement for this movie, she would have to spend four days in a cabin alone with her co-star, William Curtis. The purpose of this experiment was to create a closeness that would be conveyed on the screen. Will Sterling be able to let her pursue her dreams, or will she have to do it alone?
I’m already working on my next book. That one will focus on Shirley, Evelyn’s sister.
Thanks for your interest in The Reid Family Legacy. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.
