Hi! I’m Suzie T. Roos. The best way to introduce myself, and explain how I got here, is to start with my family. I’m 41 years old, and my husband and I have been together for over 26 years. Yes, that’s right. We’ve been together for well over half my life. We’ve grown up and stayed together—even when I got pregnant and had our first child at 16 years of age. It wasn’t easy, and our relationship was tried and pushed beyond imagination.
We had been deemed to fail. But not if I had anything to do with it. That was my mentality. Then the day we drove our daughter to college, something changed in me.
I felt compelled to write about the challenges of having a child so young. Sitting in our home office for the next six months is where numerous characters, and a story beyond my imagination, hurled themselves at me. At one point I even told my doctor, “Something’s wrong with me, I think I have multi-personality disorder!” After I explained what I meant about those crazy characters telling me what to write, she reassured me (after she stopped laughing) I did not have multi-personality disorder! I had to write what they were saying.
After 6 years of never giving up, here I am!
I’ve learned that if crazy stuff happens in your life, perhaps there’s a reason. Maybe you should do something with it.
Life truly is stranger than fiction.
I was "spoken for" by a Mob grandson, which was either terrifying or kind of cool--I wasn't sure which one yet.
When the realities of life shatter her fragile innocence, Tatum Duncan's courage and resilience are tested. She's determined to be in control of her future. But the love of her life, Zach Bertano, and his mob family may have other plans.
Will she "speak for" Zach, like he has "spoken for" her? Or will Tatum walk away?
