All she could do was sit by his bedside and hold his hand, the doctors said it wouldn’t be long. Her gentle friend defied the odds and waited, he waited to give loved ones a chance to be there, he waited… A few squandered the opportunity to say goodbye while others gathered around to let him know they cared.

She spent days and nights at his hospital bedside and never let him wake to be alone. He knew that he could always rely on her friendship, he could see her generous soul and he took comfort in that. He held her hand and through pain filled lips he let her know what her friendship meant to him, he spoke of the joy she brought him.

And it was while his hand was in hers that he gave a smile and drew his last breath. Once again this woman was his friend as she made sure that his final wishes were followed. She shouldered the responsibility because he knew he could count on her.

It was just a shovelful of dirt she dropped onto his coffin, the final act of what she could do for him, something he could never repay. Then she went home to begin her mourning taking with her sweet memories of a very special friendship and knowing that life goes on even through the tears.

A man’s first death is inevitable —
the second, being forgotten, should never come to be.
I know that she will never let that happen.

An interview of MOI by the incredible VHP author Tamara Philip from 2014.

Tamara Philip, Author

At Vanilla Heart Publishing, we have a dream team of 8 insanely talented writers and I was lucky enough to get an interview with the brilliant, Chelle Cordero, the award winning author of ‘A Chaunce of Riches‘ plus 9 more equally fantastic novels. She’s also a full-time freelance journalist for multiple publications;her articles appear regularly throughout North America and she writes a monthly column on NYS Emergency Medical Services issues as a NYS Emergency Medical Technician (First Responder News).

Her heartfelt, passionate novels will have you at the edge of your seat and it was such a treat to get to know the woman behind her work.

In less than 30 words, tell us about  “A Chaunce of Riches”?

How far would you go for love? Sam and Ben were meant to be together, but a car accident changed all that.

If you could cast your characters in…

El Último Pecado

Por Chelle Cordero

El Ayudante del Alguacil, Jake Carson, está a manos llenas… la investigación de un homicidio múltiple brutal, un hijo lleno de problemas y una exesposa rencorosa. Conoce a la joven paramédica de espíritu libre Julie Jennings. Cuando Julie se convierte en el objeto de una obsesión, ambos estarán en peligro…

Para Matt y Julie, su turno en el trabajo había empezado como cualquier otro. Recibieron una llamada por un pequeño accidente vehicular, otra por dolor en el pecho y una más por un paciente con cáncer que debía ir al hospital para recibir su tratamiento. Muchas de las comunidades al norte del estado de Nueva York habían contratado los servicios de los paramédicos para complementar el cuerpo de ambulancia que ya tenían para proveer servicios médicos de emergencia. Ya sea de…

JUST BROWSING THE INTERNET AND FOUND A FEW TERRIFIC QUOTES TO SHARE

 

“What is a fear of living? It’s being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself – for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don’t know what you’re here to do, then just do some good.” ~ Maya Angelou

~~~~~

“There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly-lit front porch.” ~ Robert Brault

~~~~~

“Anyone who has a continuous smile on his face conceals a toughness that is almost frightening.” ~ Greta Garbo

~~~~~

“I have a sweet tooth for reading, so books migrate to my zip code en mass.” ~ Dawn Olivieri

~~~~~

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
