Is Love an Emotion or a Choice?

Six years in the writing, this story comes from my heart.

Is love an emotion or a choice? Both-depending on the definition you choose. Lasting love is a choice. Worldly love, like that expressed in Hollywood or in erotica, is an emotion that fades away. The term, “I love you” has lost its meaning in today’s world. It’s tossed around like “How you doin’?” and “See ya later.”

Redeeming Paula-A Love Story? will surprise readers with its bluntness. It’s a man’s search for a reason to believe. It’s a journey for answers, and when he finds those answers, it’s a decision to take action and stand for his beliefs, even if it means giving up his own desires for the love of someone else. A rarity in today’s world.

An empty house, a missing love, no clues. After spending their prom night together, Paula Casey pleads with Mark Schroder to run away with her. She’s terrified of her father, but won’t tell Mark why. If she doesn’t escape now, it will be too late. Mark delays. he doesn’t know how to make that happen. The following day, he comes up with a plan and calls Paula. The number’s disconnected. He drives to her house and finds it empty. His searching leads to dead ends. When he finds her eight years later, will she be worth redeeming?

The best definition I can come up with for this genre is Christian Neo Noir. But whatever religion you are, or if you have none at all, the story has a purpose. Can a human learn to love unselfishly? Can he or she love another unconditionally, regardless of the consequences. Or does it take a divine intervention to make that happen?

Those who know my writing, know I don’t color-coat events. Even though I’m a Christian, I call things as I see them. I can guarantee you there is nothing on the market today quite like Redeeming Paula-A Love Story? This novel will be on Kindle by January 18, 2016. I will post a link at that time.
