Author: Rae Matthews
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 24, 2019
Starting over isn’t something anyone wants to do in their forties, unfortunately, that is where I find myself. I wanted to believe that love lasts a lifetime, I wanted to believe that no matter how bad things got there was always love to hold us together. I was as it turns out, wrong. My marriage became a statistic, but at least I got the house. It is probably the only thing keeping me sane.
Heartbroken and alone with the help of my friends I hope to be able to find happiness again. The dating world is not what it used to be, would I find happiness, more sorrow or learn to live without love.
My biggest fear isn’t that I won’t find love again, it is that I will find love again; the kind of love that can last a lifetime. My fear is that I will be too afraid to follow my heart. For now, all I can do is keep trying and remind myself that when I find it I need to Seize the Love.
Rae Matthews is a Minneapolis, Minnesota native who moved to La Crosse, Wisconsin in 2002 for a guy, of all things. There she started off as a bartender at a neighborhood bar, eventually moving into telecommunications. Years later she is now a wife and a ‘wicked’ stepmother. It’s a good thing she is a good cook, or they may have tossed her out on her tushy years ago.
Rae is also known for being a bit of a goofball. She loves to see people smile and doesn’t mind if they are smiling and even laughing at her, not with her. Her motto is, “Life is too short to not laugh as much as you can.” Rae regaled her friends with her stories for years, and she loves to tell them, even if her friends didn’t want to hear them. But now Rae is finally ready to share her stories with others.
As time goes by, Rae hopes to find more time to travel and take on new challenges while continuing her joy of telling stories, crafting, cooking and generally just having fun.
