Until they actually get married!

Natasha – 
“My life was so perfect, so structured and then it all came tumbling down in the worst way possible”

Who knew that my wedding vows would become the story of my life?

This is my story, about how the perfect love can go horribly wrong. 

Follow me as I go through the big highs and great lows in my happy ever after.


Why did you choose this subject, this risk to destroy the HEA we all dream about? 
I didn’t really choose this subject, when I sat down to write it just came to me. I suppose I have been around people who have been in these situations and I always think that no one really knows what goes on behind closed door and no one knows how they would handle being in this situation. We all dream of a HEA and I am one who doesn’t like reading romance books without a HEA. Now in fairness there aren’t many of them around, even if we do have to wait for 3 books to find out if there is a HEA. 

When one partner is ill or … just bad, what is the obligation, duty of the other partner to try to make their marriage work? 
I think the answer to that depends on the situation! If someone is ill then I would think that you are obligated to stay with them and look after them, you would want to do that because you love them. If they abuse you then until you are in that situation you don’t know how to handle it. In the case of Tasha, she believes that Felix loves her and he will go back to being the Felix she fell in love with. She doesn’t want to just give up her relationship and so she does the things he asks, like wearing the clothes he picks out etc. Some people are strong enough to walk straight out the door the first time it happens, sometimes people aren’t strong enough and believe that they will change. Each case is different!! 

What it means to you, Tasha and Caleb the marital vows? 
I don’t really understand the question! Tasha believes when she marries Felix that it is for the rest of her life and she doesn’t want to give that up easily. She loves him For Better or For Worse, so that shows that she wants to stick by him regardless. 

Does the perfect love really exist? Can it last? 
If I knew the answer to that question I would be a millionaire ha ha! Everyone believes the perfect love exists of course we do otherwise no one would get married. Whether it can last or not is debatable. Unfortunately not everyone finds perfect love the first time around! To answer the question properly, yes the perfect love does exist and yes it can last. I have friends who prove that to me over and over again. 

How fair is a cliffanger for the readers? 
Probably not! I am not a fan of cliffhangers to be honest, however, I don’t mind when I know the next book is being released shortly after. I hate waiting 6 months or more for the next instalment which is why I am releasing mine 1 month apart! I’m sorry if you don’t like cliffhangers but I promise you won’t have to wait long!

About the author:
Krissy is a mother to two young children, who in turn keep her young. She live's in Dublin, Ireland but, isn't originally from South Devon in the UK. Krissy work's full time in a pharmacy and write in her spare time, whenever the urge takes me.

She has always been interested in reading from a young age, 2 years ago she was given a kindle as a present and it was the best thing that happened to her. She was able to read lots of books ever week and then she started to write reviews for all the books she read.

She then took it one step further and started her own Facebook page – Sparkling Pink Bookshelf, she intended to upload all of my reviews for the books she has read. This was purely for pleasure at that stage. She answered a post on Facebook for someone to read for reviews and thought she had died and gone to heaven. She was reading about 7/8 books a week, the kindle made this achievable. She would read at any opportunity she was able to, even staying up til the small hours to finish a book. She loved it. Then one day she was asked to beta read a book – she love's this side of it, it was so exciting. She has worked with a number of indie authors and has remained loyal to a few select authors and she beta read all their books.

After a year or more of doing this, She thought maybe she could write some of the stories that were in her head and she just decided to write and see what happened. she wrote about 70% of a story and then saw a post for the NaNoWriMo competition – to write 50,000 words in 30 days, She decided that this was a challenge she wanted to take and the Til Death Us Do Part series was born.

She is always thinking of situations that be turned into a story and have started a few stories, which in turn will be completed and released to her readers.
