Thanksgiving week, and What Matters Most is out in trade paperback. I love the cover; it reminds me of Ireland and makes me wish I were walking on the Cliffs of Moher.
The novel picks up where Sandcastles lets off. It's a story about two people who've loved each other forever but live their lives apart. Writing the novel, I tried to capture that feeling of complete longing for something you can never have yet, at the same time, carry in your heart at all times.
I find it moving that the novel is coming out in time for Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays. "What Matters Most" is a title, but also an all-year-round question.
My family, friends, cats, nature, writing, and readers matter most to me. What matters most to you?
