"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Review

"I loved it. I loved it so much. I loved the structure, the fairytale, frogs, princes and transformation. I loved the banter and the writing. I can't even...I can't even tell you how much I loved it. The structure was genius... It was epic. I loved it. I can't wait to read the next one." - Katy Regnery, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

From the Author

What Inspired Me to Write This Book?

This whole series began on a dare--that I wouldn't be able to write a standalone novel that ended in a happy ending (until then, I'd always written series where one couple takesa few novels to reach their happy ending).

What can I say? Definitely not that I can pass up a challenge because I can't. And so, I wrote Darker Water.

Darker Water is a twist on The Frog Prince, with the heroine believing she has the metaphorical power to turn good men--princes--into a**holes--frogs. Because all the men she's fallen for had seemed perfect right up until she found out they were total pricks. So what does she need to make her believe in love again? A frog, of course. An a**hole who, because of her love, finally shows us that he's been an amazing man all along.

The fairytale at the beginning of that book (and for the next five books) came to me as soon as I started typing. It just flowed and set up the entire framework for the story. The second part of Laney and Carson's fairytale, at the end, encapsulates what they've learned and where they're headed.

All the books in my Once and Forever series will take a theme from a different fairytale and then quickly go in another direction. And it ain't towards Disneyland, folks. Because without darkness, we can't see the light.


VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE, a twist on sleeping beauty, and DEEPER WATER, Carson and Laney's after happily-ever-after, are available now!
