“Few stories deliver an array of emotions so real that my tears shed, I laugh aloud, or I allow my simmering blood to boil. Healing is truly an art, a process that has no right or wrong, and no matter how many times I read it, Bridge to Us never stops mending my broken heart.
– Heather Rexon-Capewell, Editor
Bridge to Us, my debut novel, is a Women’s Fiction/Love Story based primarily in the St. Louis, Missouri area and Estes Park, Colorado. It was originally released as The Art of Healing in June 2016. The new title contains updated scenes and an additional, new last chapter. Many of the settings are iconic locations, well-known by locals. This sweet second chances romance is now part of the Love Lost and Found Novel series.
In 2017, The Art of Healing was named a quarter-finalist in The Booklife Prize 2017 Contest.
…This satisfying novel has a traditional romance plot, but infuses it with a depth and introspection that keeps the story fresh. No space is wasted on tangents, and the plot comes to a gratifying climax. – The Booklife Prize 2017
“This touching story reminds us even the darkest moments of grief and heartbreak can be transformed through the redemptive power of love.”

Sparks ignite when Julianne and Jokob cross paths at his art exhibit. Tragic circumstances and long silent dreams work to sever their bond. Can they find a way to bridge their differences, in order to heal, follow their hearts, and learn to love again?
