Kryssie Fortune returns today to share with us some thoughts that are mighty powerful and encouraging for sure! So without much further ado, I'll turn the blog over to her.....
2001 – A heart Odyssey
Open-heart surgery isn’t pleasant, but I survived. Since a wonderful surgeon gave me a second chance, I didn’t intend to waste it.
I was back at work within three months, but my colleagues were very protective. Now, 15 years later, I feel like I’ve crammed a lifetime into 15 years. I’ve visited ancient Celtic sites in the Orkney Islands, including the Tomb of Eagles where you lay on your back on oversized skateboard and pull yourself along a rope into the rock. A few meters inside it opens out into a huge chamber. Human bones were found inside, along with the bones of 14 white-tailed sea eagles.
Not content with that, I’ve explored ancient Greece and even run the length of the track where ancient athletes competed. My husband took me to Italy next Pompeii fascinated me, but not as much as Herculaneum. Our guide knew the team excavating fresh areas and we got the behind-the-scenes tour.
Travel’s great, but there was still one dream that stayed out of reach. I wanted to write a romance novel. My husband enrolled me on a writer’s course, but that was only the start. Hard work and perseverance paid off, and Loose ID published my sixth book, To Seduce an Omega, in January. It’s a stand-alone romance but it forms part of my Scattered Sibling’s series.
Throughout the last 15 years, I’ve thought about my heart operation a lot. It changed the course of my life. And I’m loving it. Sometimes, I think I’m the luckiest woman alive.
Wow Kryssie, sounds like you ARE one blessed lady!
Don't forget folks, Kryssie writes hot and steamy, erotic paranormal romance and her latest release, To Seduce an Omega is available now and can be purchased from the following places:
Now a little more about Kryssie in her own words....
I’m a dreamer, drawn to drop-dead gorgeous Fae, sensual vampires, and Lykae with a dominant streak so wide you can play football on it. It took a while before I dare put my dream down on paper, but now I love to share them with my readers.
I’m a grandmother on the cusp or retiring to live by the sea. I can’t wait to enjoy romantic walks hand-in hand with my husband on the beach.
