But today, instead of an excerpt or details about the plot or characterization, I want to talk about a part of a book I don’t typically discuss.
It’s dedicated to these two kids:
Those are my grandparents, Quinton and Mittie, when they were teenagers, just before they got married.
I had the pleasure of spending the last few days with them as they celebrated their 70th anniversary.
They’ve been married 70 years this month. 70. It’s a little hard to wrap your head around, isn’t it?
So when my new series was releasing the same month as their 70th anniversary, I knew I had to dedicate the book to them. Was honored to dedicate the book to them:
To my grandparents: Mittie and Quinton King, as you celebrate your 70th(!!!) wedding anniversary this very month. All the romantic stories I’ll ever write will never compare to the true love you’ve lived in a lifetime together. You’ve taught me that marriage is 80% adoration and 20% exasperation, but no matter what, always filled with respect. Thank you for being a living example of what love is to your children, your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren. Your legacy is many things, but most importantly, is love.
So my grandparents may not have lived through kidnappings and explosions and escaping from a terrorist compound (all of which can be found in SPECIAL FORCES SAVIOR) but for me and my family, they are definitely heroes. Shining examples of true love and happily ever afters.
Janie recently relocated with her husband and four children to Germany (due to her husband's job as support for the U.S. Military), after living in Virginia for nearly 20 years. When she’s not listening to the voices in her head (and even when she is), she enjoys traveling, long-distance running, movie-watching, knitting and adventure (obstacle) racing. Janie completed an Ironman Triathlon in 2014.
Most of all, she loves to laugh and smile and count her blessings. And her blessings are many.
