During a daily ritual of morning coffee at my place, my life was suddenly and very unexpectedly changed forever.

I complained to my java companion that I had run out of books to read. Not a fan of the young adult paranormal romance genre, she made several other suggestions, none of which appealed to me. Needless to say, her good mood soured quickly, partly due to being on the receiving end of a multitude of frowns and nose scrunching. True to form, she retaliated swiftly with the challenge of writing my own. Once I recovered from my bout of hysterical laughter, and wiped the mirthful tears from my eyes, I was astonished to find her staring at me with the most serious of expressions. Her following words gave me pause, and I later learned would come back to haunt me, “I believe in you. You can do this.”

After walking her to the front door, and bidding her a good day at work, I retreated to my living room and settled into my favourite corner of the sofa. Staring into nothingness, I asked myself if I could. Could I truly write a book? Dare I? Being a stay-at-home-mom to two beautiful self-sufficient daughters, I certainly had time on my hands. Finding myself seduced by the challenge, I began mulling around ideas for a story, all of which went from bad to worse. Just at the ready to give up, two protagonists presented themselves. They had a story to tell, and needed me as their vessel. A moment later I found myself sitting at the computer, tapping away at the keyboard, and barely managing to keep up with them.

This novel has been a labour of love, the encouraging words spoken over a cup of coffee, giving me the courage to share my imaginary friends, and their story.

I hope readers will enjoy the novel as much as I enjoyed writing it, and share in my curiosity of what the future holds for our dear friends.
