Elizabeth Woods and Ian Sweeten had a romance which sparked over a few months. Marriage followed, and with it the couple traveled around the world as he served in the military. After Ian’s deployment, overseas, their young love deepened into something more but with life comes complications, and what Elizabeth comes to realize is that her husband is battling his own demons. Mind games, deceit and abuse become part of the ways Ian seeks to control her. As she struggles to repair her marriage and get back to the love they shared early in their relationship, Elizabeth realizes that holding on to the man she loves may come at a price too high to pay.
“My marriage to Ian started out how any young couple’s would start out. We were madly in love, excited, and had the world at our fingertips. But truthfully, I was scared—terrified.
“I was about ready to board a flight to Japan and leave my friends and family and the life I knew behind. My mother sat next to me in the waiting area at the gate. She was able to get a pass to get through security to wait with me. It was hard to look at her. Tears streamed down her cheeks. Her nose was red, and her eyes were swollen and puffy with dark circles underneath.
This was by far the hardest good-bye I’d ever had to do. I was leaving the safety of my mother’s arms, flying to a foreign country to live with a man that I’d only had a long-distance relationship with, all at the age of nineteen.”
Q & A with Erica R. Lomelino
What or who inspired you to start writing?
I first started out writing poems in middle school, then in high school I began writing in a journal and joined the school newspaper. In adulthood, I found a love for writing short stories.
How did you come up with ideas for your books?
Although my book is published as fiction, most of the events in this book were written from my own life experiences. I was hurting and writing was a way to release the pain that was trapped inside. I wrote about what I knew, no matter how hard it would be to share these experiences with the world.
What would you want your readers to know about you that might not be in your bio?
I love walking outside on a nice day and just standing there for a moment and taking everything in. The warmth of the sun on my skin, the wind blowing through my hair, and sounds of the birds chirping away. No matter what is going on in my life, in that small moment I am at peace.
As far as your writing goes, what are your future plans?
I hope to write a few more novels but I think my greater passion is in writing children books. I have written and published one so far titled, Grandpa’s Farm and my daughter loves me reading it to her over and over again.
If you were the casting director for the film version of your novel, who would play your leading roles?
For the role of Elizabeth I think I would choose Evan Rachel Wood. She’s a pro when it comes to dramas, and is on point with her sex appeal. For the role of Ian, I think this is a much harderchoice so for now I would say either LiamHemsworth or Chris Pine.
