About the Author
Terri Mann honed her professional writing skills for many years as a copywriter for business entities and as a grant writer for social services agencies and arts organizations. She also found success in writing personal essays, which were published locally and nationally. Since childhood, books have been an integral part of Terri’s life. She still remembers the magic of fairytales and the princes and princesses who brought these tales to life, especially stories from one of her favorite books, East of the Sun and West of the Moon. Now & Forever is Terri’s first romance novel. She lives in Lakewood Ohio, on the shores of Lake Erie, where she finds inspiration in sunsets and moonrises, and hopes to write other romance novels about heroes and heroines in search of love and happily-ever-after endings. Kate Lane has spent her life in the northern Ohio area, near the shores of Lake Erie. She has has two grown children, and five grandchildren, all of whom she sees often. They also live in the area, enabling Kate to see them quite often. Kate also very much enjoys cooking and baking and all that is part of it. She can be found at local markets, restaurants, and wineries, always looking for something new! Kate's enjoyment in reading is lifelong, a hobby encouraged by her mother. Movies became an integral part of her life as well, and Kate loves to compare the transition from book to film. Her most preferred movie genre are the dramas and mysteries from the '30s/'40s, though she can also be found entrenched in '50s scifi/monster offerings, with a healthy dose of vampires thrown in for good measure. With plots and characters always on her mind, Kate decided that writing would be the natural conclusion of her ever present passion for romance and adventure! Creativity, writing and attention to detail have been important in Kate's professional career in her positions in social service and private industry.

While I'm not a regular fan of the modern romance novel genre, I found this book to be very well written with compelling characters and a theme that is contemporary and important.
The authors have done a great job of keeping the writing tight and moving the plot along quickly without any distractions. I read the book in about 5 hours which makes this a great summer read. It's fast but not necessarily light.
The characters are caught up in dilemmas and secrets that relate to women's decisions regarding unplanned pregnancy. This theme is explored in the book without ever being explicitly talked about. It is definitely an undercurrent which guides the flow of the plot. Anyway, I thought this point was very well made, if somewhat covert.
The book is entertaining and, like all good art, it will make you think.
I thoroughly enjoyed Now and Forever and Ms Mann and Ms Lane manage to write seamlessly. There was something hauntingly familiar about this book. Not the story, but the writing. After I’d read the last page and sighed in contentment, I decided the novel’s pacing and masterful craft reminded me of some of the great romance authors.
The authors did an excellent job, and I'm really looking forward to reading the next one.
