Anytime I would tell someone I was writing a story about a rock star, I could see their eyes start to glaze over. Almost as if a cartoon balloon floated up, I could just about see them thinking, “Why?”
As if I had a choice! As soon as these two characters plopped down in my brain and took up housekeeping, they demanded that I tell their story.
There was Britt Jordan: quirky, restless, determined, forgetful, genius. Losing his voice and lugging a weight of guilt. Skeptical in matters of faith. It required a peculiar insanity on my part to house him inside my head.
And Dena: self-assured, calm, a mother, fearless, imaginative. Rooted in her faith; positive in her trust in Britt. Her melodious voice still lilts through my thoughts at times.
Britt’s presence in Dena’s life brings more than paparazzi. His baggage includes a brother who wants to destroy him and a stalker intent on killing Dena. To what lengths would he go to keep his family safe? I had to find out.
After they had told their story, Britt and Dena packed up and left my brain; I must confess that I miss them some days. Their story will forever be a part of mine.
And now, I trust their voices will transport you into the higher truth of their story . . .
