Good afternoon campbellsworld visitors and bookworms all over the world.
We’re back, and just in the very right moment in time!
Karen J Mossman is here to tell us all about her latest release.
Love can conquer all, but at what cost?
Joanna’s Destiny (The Decade Series Book 3)
Struggling with the past, Joanna can’t forget the love she lost and the man who broke her heart. During the summer at a rock festival, Joanna meets him again. Niko is now an international rock star. Can they put the past behind them and rekindle the love they once had?
Mike stood by her when no one else did, but Niko still wants her? Joanna becomes entangled in a web of lies and deceit. Niko is the love of her life, but she cannot leave Mike in confusion and betrayal.
In Joanna’s Destiny, she has some fun times in France and mingles with the stars in Montreux. With a backdrop of music and fashion, emotions and friendships are tested. But her love for Niko never falters, showing that love can conquer all, but at what cost?
He began to sing a ballad that started slowly with just a whisper of her name in the high tones of his voice. When the words came in baritone, they were powerful and strong. His voice blended with the music, haunting and enchanting. Joanna was mesmerised.
The lyrics told of a young girl he had met a long time ago, a mere shadow of the woman she would become. The chorus sent a tingle down her back as he sang of his lady, such a special lady, who had forgiven him when he had mistreated her. The undertones told of how his heart had broken as he went through the door, leaving her weeping and alone, and how her eyes had haunted him. The guitar riff was mournful, and she felt tearful at the strength of his emotion.
She had never known Nike had felt like that.
Karen J Mossman is a grandmother, but these days that is not as old as it sounds. A grandmother can be as little as thirty-two. Karen laughs, “It’s a long time since I was since thirty two, but we are who we are, and I have two beautiful grandchildren and a third on the way, so being a grandmother is fine.”
“I’ve always written stories. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t write. I started out writing just for me because it gave me pleasure and it was a form of escapism. My parents fostered and having four siblings of my own, we sometimes had up to ten children in our house, so it was nice to go somewhere, even if it was just in my head!
“The story of Joanna first came to me back in the eighties, which is why the first book was set in that era. Although I must admit, the eighties pretty much passed me by as I raised my children.”
Karen originally wrote just one book, but it became clear soon after that the ending wasn’t right. Joanna’s heart belonged to someone else. So as the decade turned to the nineties, the second book was written and for a long time, the two stayed as one book and put away in a drawer.
Eventually, when publishing became accessible to everyone, the book re-emerged as two.
Besides writing, Karen is an avid reader and book blogger. She also loves to cross stitch and is devoted to her Yorkshire Terrier, Tilly. Living on the small island of Anglesey, just off the north Wales coast, she has plenty of nearby beaches to walk with her dog and draw inspiration for stories in her head, which may, or may not come to fruition one day.
Back in 1980 Karen married the boy next door and 38 years later, it’s a decision she has never regretted.
