Constellation (Volume 1)

She’s intelligent, beautiful, and emotionally numb.
He’s older, sophisticated, and harboring secrets.

Up-and-coming executive, Kathleen Brighton is ready to launch her family’s firm into the next level of success. Polished and professional on the outside, Kathleen’s personal life is a source of constant struggle and letdown. But after one night alone with Jack Evans, her sexy new colleague, her life takes a turn toward erotic intensity.

Torn between her instinct to guard herself and her irresistible desire for Jack, Kathleen has only known heartache. And when she finds herself in the middle of a shattering personal crisis, she must trust fragile and uncertain bonds to survive. Will Kathleen conquer the demons of her past to find a future worth fighting for?

  • I love my life - my family, my friends, my career in fundraising, my writing. I've had a good thing going for over 7 years now, and I've juggled quite a bit on a nearly non-stop schedule.

On Wednesday, my body said enough. I left the office to attend an appointment and ended up being admitted to the Emergency Room instead. I'm back home and following orders. I'll be in resting mode until next week. I should take this hospital band off my wrist, but at the moment it's an important reminder that my rest is a medical necessity.

When I return to the routine, the routine is going to have to undergo a serious evaluation. I want to keep doing everything I've been doing, but I need to go about it all differently. I need to make better decisions across the board.

What all does that mean? I'm not completely sure yet. A complete assessment is an overwhelming consideration at this particular moment. It will just have to happen one decision at a time, and as the weeks and months go by, I'm hoping it all adds up to positive results.

I'm only at the beginning of a long journey, and my first step is this post. In order to be honest with myself, I need to be honest with you too. Some decisions will be easy. Others not so much. But they will all be made with one goal in mind.

I love my life as it is and I want to keep up with the people and activities that bring me true joy. I'm not going away. I just need to be wholly realistic about what my limits are - physically and emotionally. 
Keep calm and Cran on ...
