Author Interview

What was your motivation behind AS THE LIGHT FADES? Why did you want to write it?

I wrote As the Light Fades as a spin-off to my 2016 novel, The Things We Knew. Readers were asking for more books about the Carlisle family. I chose to tell Liz’s story, because I think she may have been the least popular Carlisle sibling. I’m always intrigued by the underlying stories of what causes people to act the way they do – what events from the past have shaped their future? What is their wound? I knew Liz’s story would be a fascinating one! And the addition of Drake, Matthew, and Mia Stone’s voices to the novel made it even more appealing for me. And of course, I love the setting of Nantucket, and I was eager to get back to it.

What do you hope readers take with them after they’ve read it?

I think the message in As the Light Fades, is two-fold. First, it’s never too late to start over. To grab hold of a second chance to do better, be better, set things right, however that looks for you. Secondly, we are all worthy of love. Many of us have been so wounded that we wonder if it’s us, if we’re really that unlovable. Some of us, like Mia, act out on those things that have hurt us. Sometimes we even believe we deserve the pain we’ve been dealt.

Not. True. I would challenge us all to look a little closer at the image in the mirror. To know that no matter where we’ve been, what choices we’ve made, who has harmed us or hurt us, we are good. We are deserving. And we are worthy.

Do you have a favorite scene that you can share with us?

Yes! Well, I have many, but I think my very favorite takes place in Chapter 30, on Matt’s friend Rusty’s farm. It’s a really important turning point between Matt and Mia, very sweet and may require a tissue or two. And that’s about all I can say about it without spoiling it!

If you could sum the book up in one sentence, what would you say?

An exploration of the deepest secrets we keep hidden in order to feel safe, and the freedom found in letting them go.

Share something about you that is unique - maybe about how/where you write... or favorite snack foods?

I live in Bermuda, so I suppose that’s unique. 🙂 Bermuda is a small island in the Atlantic, about 700 or so miles off the coast of South Carolina. We are still a British Colony, have the most beautiful beaches, and a slow-paced way of life. I was born on the island, so it’s been home forever. I have never written a novel about Bermuda, but the one I am working on now is set here! I’m excited about that. Also, though I am an island girl, I rarely go to the beach. 🙂

Women's Fiction

September 10th 2019 by KDP

Sometimes we’re placed in the strangest of circumstances for the most important reasons.

After her carefully constructed life crumbles, Liz Carlisle finds herself back on Nantucket, picking up the pieces. With the family estate under renovations, the solitude she craves seems out of reach.

Matthew Stone intends to steer clear of his new tenant. She’s carrying a load of baggage, but as long as she pays the rent, he’ll let her be. He’s got enough to deal with caring for his wayward niece, Mia.

Liz doesn’t have time for teenagers and her track record with men is abysmal, but an unlikely friendship forms between the three.

When her former boyfriend is charged with assault, Liz is called to testify against him. But he knows the darkest secrets of her life—secrets she’d hoped to keep buried forever, and he’s ready to reveal them. Telling the truth is the right thing to do, but it may cost her everything she’s worked so hard for, and all she’s come to love.
