About The Novel Nothing’s Ever Lost

Jack and Anna are dead. Not romantic vampire dead. Not even night-of-the-living dead, but really dead.

At least Jack is. Anna might just be having a near-death experience. It’s surprisingly hard to tell. Either way, they’re on a path through the afterlife; where Death wears a polo shirt, factories manufacture broken things, and forests try to trap you. To make it through, they have to stick together.

But sticking together would be a lot easier if they weren’t both keeping secrets. Anna is awesome at pretending everything is fine…until she isn’t. Meanwhile, Jack is afraid he’s gone crazy and this whole adventure is part of his delusion.

Somehow, they’re going to have to trust each other if they want to make it through to the other side — wherever that is.

About Emma

Emma reading Story Driven

I’ve wanted to be an author for almost as long as I’ve been able to read, and I don’t remember not being able to read.

Growing up, my favorite books (in chronological order) were:

  • Little Max the Cement Mixer by Renee Bartkowski
  • The Little House on the Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  • Animorphs by K. A. Applegate
  • The Redwall Series by Brian Jacques
  • The Song of the Lioness Series by Tamora Pierce
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Now I love anything by Terry Pratchett (especially his Discworld books (especially, especially the Sam Vimes storyline.))

I have a thriving freelance writing business that allows me to research, learn and write to my heart’s content. Well…almost.

I can’t seem to let go of that dream I had when I was a child. That dream of publishing a book. In July 2019, that dream becomes a reality.
