I don’t know about you, but I don’t know what I’d do without my friends. I have been truly blessed. They have been there for me through all kinds of weird s**t. Bad day. Bad month. Bad flu. Bad boyfriends. Bad husband. (Yup, I had one of those before I met my hubby today.)
So, I guess it’s no surprise that friendship is always a strong theme in my books. What would Kylie, Della and Miranda do if they didn’t have each other? How many times did they save each other’s butts? And who can forget their Diet Cokes around the table as they talked out their problems and helped each other with solutions? In The Mortician’s Daughter: One Foot in the Grave, Riley finds a best friend, too. Kelsey is a bit prickly at first. Oh, but soon she standing up for Riley. Which leads Riley to stand up for her. It’s a shame that a fight erupts and Riley ends up with pretty black, blue and purple eye. Then there’s her other friend, Hayden. The only problem is that he’s dead. But she finds herself relying on him more and more as time goes by, even though she knows she’ll have to let him go.
On February 27th, This Heart of Mine comes out, and like the rest of my books, friendship plays a pivotal role. Leah MacKenzie’s best friend is Brandy. And Brandy is the friend who has stuck by her through her through thick and thin and even her heart problems. She’s the one friend that makes Leah feel like a normal teen. They share their problems and their dreams, even though Leah doesn’t expect to realize any of her dreams.
