In Others’ Words: Which Way Do We Go? (Guest Post by
My friend, Pat Trainum is visiting today. She writes as Patricia Bradley and is departing from her usual romantic suspense novels to pen two sweet Christmas romances in the Heartwarming Christmas Anthology.
Have you ever wanted to run away from your problems? I have, so it’s natural that I would write about characters who run away. In my latest story, Amy Logan lives in a Christmas Town, Maine and like most small towns, everyone knows everyone’s business. Like how Amy can’t have children, and she’s tired of seeing pity in the eyes of everyone she meets. She believes she will be happy if she can move thousands of miles away in spite of what her mom says.
Then Mark Bradford returns to Christmas Town. He broke her heart once and she’s not about to let him do it again. Except…he’s come home with his daughter who has selective mutism. And he wants Amy’s help.
How about you? Do you think you can run away from your problems? Or do you believe you just take them along with you? Or are you like my mom who always said, “I’d run away but it wouldn’t do any good—I can’t leave myself behind.”
