One Christmas Eve, five years ago, James Lorde lost the love of his life in a freak drowning accident. His wife’s body was never recovered, and since that night, he’s been in a depression, both grieving and clinging to hope that she lives.
It’s Christmas Eve, and the depression is especially hard this time of year. He gets only a small measure of relief when he’s near the water that stole her away from him because, somehow, he feels her presence on the beach. His family thinks he’s losing his mind when he tells them he feels her out there, but that is the reason he bought the home where he currently resides. He wants to give her a way home.
On this Christmas day, it feels as if his wife is in the home with him. In a fit of desperation, unable to remain in the house, he takes off running toward the beach. As he starts to run, he feels someone running alongside him, but there is no one there when he looks. Thinking he has definitely gone over the edge, he begins running backward, hoping to catch evidence of whomever is following him.
And there they were, two footsteps next to his in the sand. He is so shocked by this that he keeps running, looking for the footsteps, but before he can focus on them, the waves wash them away. Running backward, he trips over an obstacle in his path. Turning around, he is not prepared for the sight that greets him, as he is now left to wonder, can even loved ones find their way home, at Christmas….?

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I write about passionate love between two people, just two people, which could apply to any two people in love. I also write from the male character’s perspective.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Work hard, stay focused, use an editor, two if possible, and write, write, write. The reward will come if you keep at it.
I began writing professionally at the age of 19. At that time, I wrote short stories for the local radio station in my home town. I gave up writing when I moved to the United States to attend college. I have since earned several degrees, including two Masters and a Doctorate in Higher Education Administration from Northeastern University in Boston. During the course of my schooling, I wrote and published a working curriculum for a career school, a business manual and its answer key, as well as other literary work. In 2010 I revisited my first love, writing for fun and enjoyment.
I write children’s books under my given name, which can be found here, Too-Clever ,and under my pen name, Ju Ephraime I write high heat, steamy, adult romance novels, which can be found here, Ju Ephraime or on my blog here, All About High Heat Romance.
Currently, I am working on my ninth romance novel, a love story set in the beautiful state of Connecticut, Against All Odds, the sequel to Temptation To Sin. I am also participating in National Novel Writing Month and hope to put out one title, Complete Surrender and a Christmas Novella, Footsteps In The Sand.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired by the desire to write a book set in Connecticut depicting undying love and the miracle of Christmas.
