Book Characters

Which of your book characters has a lot of you in them? They all have a little bit of me. I always put one characteristic of myself in them. For instance, Portia from Chasing Stars hated peanut butter. I do too. Mel from To Catch a Falling Star hated lies. I do too. And so on.

Tell us more about you…

I have found that there is only one thing better than reading, and that is writing. I am always torn between the two. I am also frequently torn between chocolate and coffee. However, I emphatically do not like the month of February, lies, and flies. For me, bravery is defined by the courage to do what we fear the most. This conviction is reflected in my books. I live in Connecticut with my husband and two children. Drop a few lines. I would love to hear from you.

*~* Coming Soon from L. Duarte *~* 


Mine went like this: Once upon a time, I met a boy. He was the most handsome fella in the land. I fell in love. Together, we had cosmic chemistry. I believed I would live a life of unending bliss. Until he broke my heart. Shattered it to pieces. And I lived unhappily ever after instead. The end.

Or so I thought.

Life found a way to reunite us. But to change that unhappy ending, I had to learn how to forgive. And my heart seemed unable to do so.

This is a love story. But it is also, much more. It’s the story of how I coped with my shortcomings, my fears and rewrote my destiny. Everyone has a story. This is mine.
