About

Tragedy has a way of opening our hearts to face what’s holding us back from experiencing the very thing we long for. True Love.

Love Again tells the story of Jennifer Washington, an aspiring actress who deters every man who tries to get close to her, until David Bradshaw, an endearing successful novelist, comes along. Although Jennifer has an instant, uncanny attraction to him, she tries her best to stay away from him. She knows he would take her focus away from her dreams, or could he? David pique her curiosity, because he was the only man in her life that believed in her dreams, and inches his way into her heart with his undeniable charm and persistence. But what lies beneath the surface of the two is potent and powerful enough to keep them away from each other forever. But it could also pull them together stronger than ever. LOVE AGAIN is a novel for readers who believe they’ll never have a second chance at love. And for those who wait for the PERFECT time to experience it, will miss an opportunity.

Here's the Introduction to Love Again and the first paragraph from Chapter 1

"To My Future Wife,

 I penned this letter now instead of later, because I want to thank God in advance for you. I already know you’re going to be an amazing woman. You’re going to be exactly what I prayed for. And by the time I meet you, I’m going to be everything you need me to be. So whoever you are, wherever you are, here’s an open letter I want to send to you, for all to see. I know you’ll be a testimony of my patience. I hope that your heart to open to receive these words. 

 Maybe you’re probably in another situation now. Maybe you’re trying to work things out with the guy you’re with. Maybe your heart is healing from a terrible breakup, one that you invested a great deal of your time and energy in. Perhaps there are some other personal issues going on in your life, that’s preventing you from walking into mine. May be we just haven’t met. Whatever that’s going in your life, there’s no rush. God’s timing is perfect. We will grace each other eyes and touch each other’s heart. We will enjoy plenty of days and evenings together, whether conversing about life, laughing about something silly, or doing something we both enjoy. I want you to know, that wherever you are in life, I’m praying for you to experience wholeness. I want you to be complete and happy, full of joy before you meet me. I’m going to look at you as a compliment to my life---only to add to it---never to subtract or divide from it.

 And you’re not the only who’s being prepared for marriage. While I’m waiting on you, God is shaping me into the man he wants me to be for you: A protector and a provider, a great communicator, and a spiritual leader. He also wants me to be a great lover, a man who can make love to the deepest parts of you, and who can also be intimate without physical touch. He’s molding me into a man who’s transparent, and vulnerable--vulnerable enough to accept you in my life without reservation of being hurt. He’s building my trust in him, so I can fully trust you, my blessing.

 I want to end this letter by saying: I look forward to developing a wonderful friendship with you: One that’s based on open and honest communication, trust and prayer. I look forward to learning everything about you. I want to know the woman behind closed doors that many seldom see. I want to know what’s inside your heart, because that’s where your true treasure lies. I want to know what’s in your spirit, because that’s where your true beauty lies. I want to know you before I propose to you.

Until we cross paths, don’t rush love. We’ll find each other soon. I know it. I can feel it. I’ll see you soon. 

 David Bradshaw, "

                                                        Chapter 1

David shivered as his eyes moved light speed on an article about a mystery novel called 1994. He glanced over his shoulder and saw the woman from last night sashaying through the door. She walked as if the red carpet was rolled out for her, and photographers trampled on top of each other, snapping the best pictures to submit to tabloids. His pupils expanded, and his heart pounded so hard against his chest that it interrupted the flow of his breathing. He turned back around, dabbing his tongue against the dry walls of his pasty mouth. And took a gritty swallow, shifting his weight from his left foot to the right. Then a warming sensation pressed against his chest, soothing him within. This was the same churning conjuring up inside of him when their eyes met for the first time. He scanned the café to see if anyone could feel what he felt. He saw everyone occupied in their own lives, as life around him moved in slow motion, and the sound of rattling blenders, customers calling off customer, were all eons away.  

“Next!” called a Barista. “

Now on to the # 1 question, so Where Are the Funds Going to? Thought You'd Never Ask. This is a breakdown of my $ 7,000 Budget.

$ 1,500:  A Web Designer  & Graphic Designer.

 My brother is doing the job. I feel more comfortable keeping it in the family. This is the link to his website.

Risks and challenges

I have key persons in place to begin working on my novel once I reach my funding goal. I've done the research, communicated with freelance professionals to build a website, to edit and design the jacket of my novel. I also have a printing company that I plan to go with to produce physical copes of the book.
