Review

Heaven Can Wait is a fantastic piece of Americana. Cheryl St.John is a rising talent with a bright future." **** - Harriet Klausner

From the Author

I write romancefor the same reason I've read romance for so many years. For the same reasonthat first one I ever read awakened something inside me to the vastpossibilities and challenging scenarios in this genre. I love romances. I lovelosing myself in the emotional adventures of two diverse characters who aredestined to be together. I guess I want to believe that there's somebody foreveryone, and that under just the right circumstances and with a bit of thatmagic we call romance, happily-ever-afters are within our reach. Before youscoff and call me a Pollyanna, I assure you I'm enough in tune with reality tolock my doors and warn my children of strangers. I watch the news and I see thestate of our world. But what do we have if we don't have hope?
 
Romance is allabout hope.
 
Years ago Ireceived the most memorable letter I've ever received from a reader. She toldme how much she'd enjoyed my book, how she identified with the characters andhow she'd cried her eyes out for the heroine. She shared that, like thecharacter in my story, she'd been stalked and beaten by someone who should haveloved her. Unlike my character however, the reader has permanent nerve damageto her arm. Her story touched me so deeply that I sat and cried. This dearperson's true-life story forced me to consider the validity of what I wasdoing.
 
I sat at mydesk thinking how shallow my work is. I mean, I make all this stuff up! I orderpeoples' lives around and manipulate them to suit my plots -- but it's allfiction.
 
While I sit inmy comfortable climate controlled office with every possible convenience at myfingertips, sipping cup after cup of chai tea and munching M&Ms, out therein the world are people experiencing devastating hurts and losses and traumas.In that light, what I do seems so inconsequential. That thinking lasted about,oh, ten minutes. And then it came to me -- I realized why this young reader hadbeen touched so profoundly by my story. She said she hoped that some day shewould meet a man like my hero, a man who would love her that same way. She hadhope. Romance is about hope.
 
We invest ourtime in the characters in these stories because we know that no matter whatdilemmas befall them, no matter what obstacles they face or which conflictsarise, in the end love will conquer all; good will win over evil; and ahappily-ever-after will prevail.
 
Each of ushopes there is a special someone out there, a special man or woman who willlove us unconditionally and fill that place created in our heart just for them.Romance brings our hopes to life. Through these stories of love and commitment,we experience the fulfillment of the human dream. What better reason do we needto love romance than a desire to be swept away in the pages of a story filledwith excitement and expectation?
 
I write romancebecause I want to share the same sweeping emotions with my readers that havebeen shared with me by my favorite writers. I want to feel. I want toexperience the excitement of falling in love over and over, of facing my fearsand winning over seemingly impossible odds. I write romance because it's who Iam and what I believe in.
