“An Angel in the Distance” Sequel in the Works
I hope you are all well and reading until your hearts are content. In 2008, I began working on a story that started as a rewrite of one of me and my mom’s favorite movies: Andy Tennant’s Ever After. After a little research, I found the story hidden in history, and I let the words flow. Seven years later, in 2015, it was polished and published as An Angel in the Distance, a rags-to-riches story with humor, history, a classic humanism characteristic of the time, and a hint of romance. About a year ago, as I was thinking about the end of the novel, I found myself wondering, What happens to Piero after the end of the book? Does he meet his demise? Considering his arc as a sympathetic character turned villain, I wanted to give his a second chance to redeem himself. Knowing the he destructive path he began in the first novel, I knew it would take something catastrophic to redeem him.
Suddenly, catastrophic was exactly what I intended to do.
As we all know, sometimes we get caught up in our own plans and forget that there is someone who knows what the best plan is, the best option, and sometimes the only option. If we would only seek it out, and ask for guidance, we would find more than we could have ever hoped for.
A cryptic preview, yes, but I am looking forward to introducing all of you to the woman who will be the catalyst for Piero’s redemption: Carita Del Cuore.
More to come!
