Any of you who’ve read my Facebook page already know that I lost my husband last Friday. He fought long and hard, we both did, but there are some battles that you just can’t win.

He was the love of my life—brilliant and handsome, compassionate and charming, the inspiration for every hero I’ve ever written. And he loved me. We were together well over half of my life, and I still can’t believe I’ll never see him again. Never hold his hand, or hear his voice.

My heart is broken.

My editor has sent me the revisions on Kato, and I’m working on those, because I desperately need something to occupy my mind. He was the one who filled this house with energy, and now it’s far too empty.

I’m going to take a few weeks to deal with this, but I’ll be back. Kiss the ones you love.
