CHAPTER THREE- “EMOTIONS EXPLODE”

Ron’s gaze swept over Nicole with a hunger, as if he were a cat and she was the mouse he was about to devour.  Her long chestnut brown tresses hung in ringlets that cascaded down her back to her waistline.  Her shoulders were bare with only a gold chain covering her neck.  Ron’s eye trailed down below the neckline where her satin slate grey dress began clinging to her rounded breasts, her slender waist and hips, and then flowed down to the floor.

Ron swallowed hard.  “You are breathtakingly beautiful Nicole!  Simply exquisite!”  He appeared to be in a trance like state as he stared at Nicole.

Nicole felt truly beautiful.  Ron’s comments caused her high cheek bones to flush with color and set highlights dancing in her large violet eyes.

IT’S ALL IN THE SETTING OF MY BOOK!!

A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE BY LEEANNE MARIE STEPHENSON

IT’S ALL IN THE SETTING OF THE BOOK!!

IT’S ALL IN THE SETTING

A Prescription for Love – Leeanne Marie Stephenson

Why did you pick the setting you used in your story? I’m not looking for — “because I live there”. I want you to dig deep and tell us
Why you chose that particular setting?
I chose
Michigan and the community I worked in as a Registered Nurse. I take the reader on a journey back into the 1970’s at Blodgett Hospital where I began my own career as a nurse. All the places in Michigan that I write about, I have visited, so I have a first hand knowledge of their beauty and significance!

What does the setting add to the story?
Since my story is a medical romance, it depicts the heart of the medical community in Michigan. it also takes the reader into a world of wealth and prestige in the varios wealthy areas of Michigan.

Could you write the same story in a different setting?
I could write the story in another hospital setting.

Why or why couldn’t you use a different setting?
A different setting would be difficult, because the personlity of the setting wouldn’t come through since I never experienced the setting myself. In particular, Michigan‘s Mackinac Island is such a glamorous romantic setting, it couldn’t possibly be repaced in my story!

Did you use a real place as a basis for your setting?
Every place I wrote about existed back in the 1970’s, and I have been to all these places.

Or, did you create the setting from scratch?
Is there anything else about your setting that we need to know? Feel free to share.
This romantic journey highlights Grand Rapids, East Grand Rapids and the beautiful historical Mackinac Island of Michigan. The details of the setting make you feel as though you are right there with the characters. You willparticularly fall in love with the romantic Mackinac Isalnd! It’s a love story in a setting you don’t want to miss!

Hello world!

A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVEBIOGRAPHY OF LEEANNE MARIE STEPHENSONRN and Author of“A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE” 

            My introduction into the world of medical professionals started at the age of six.  I was diagnosed with “brittle diabetes”, and spent the majority of my childhood in the hospital.  Doctors, nurses, and nutritionists impressed me with their patience, sensitivity and positive can do attitudes.  They taught me how to balance my food intake and insulin injections so I could lead a “somewhat” normal life.  The professionalism these people displayed made me realize that I wanted to be part of this care giving community.  Therefore, I became a Registered Nurse.  After graduating with honors from Mercy Central School of Nursing, (Grand Rapids, MI), I secured a position as a Registered Nurse at Blodgett Hospital, (Grand Rapids, MI).  Over the next ten years, I married my high school sweetheart and started a family.  Periodically I changed jobs to meet the demands of parenthood and family life. 

Then my life took a dramatic turn as I was diagnosed with kidney failure due to my diabetes.  The prognosis was less than promising.  As my physical condition deteriorated, I was forced to give up my career as a nurse.  Fatigue and weakness encompassed my entire world as I underwent dialysis treatments.  Once again, I was on the receiving end of medical care.  Desperate and determined to still be part of this wonderful profession, I started writing a romance novel based on the experiences I had encountered as a nurse.  When the days that lie ahead of me seemed impossible to face, I did not allow my tears to compromise my strength.  Instead of giving up, during the darkest time in my life, I drew on the love that surrounded me from my wonderful husband and family to write this loving story. When I wrote, I was released from my physical problems and taken back into the world of nursing, which I loved so much.  Romantic stories can always release us from the problems of real life.  They send us into a fantasy world where our imaginations can soar.  I strove to take my readers and myself into that world.  Thus was born my book, “A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”.

This book is so very special because it represents the strong love I had surrounding me, and what I could accomplish because of it, during the lowest point in my life.

 The one driving force in my life was to be there for my family, especially my precious children.  I had to continue and be a strong role model for them. I demonstrated to them that when adversity is overwhelming, you still have to endure. Getting ahead in a difficult situation requires an avid faith in oneself.  I did just that by reaching deep inside myself and drawing on my core values of perseverance and unfaltering resolve to overcome the obstacles in my life and achieve one of my dreams!

After a year on dialysis, I was told I could have a kidney transplant.  My wonderful brother stepped forward and gave me the gift of life.   From that moment on, my whole world changed for the better and I eagerly embraced this second chance at life.  When I felt well enough, I set about getting my romance story published, so I could be an inspirational example of what can be accomplished when life seems overwhelmingly hopeless!  Unfortunately, I recently learned that my transplanted kidney is deteriorating.  I hope and pray that I am able to showcase my story to others before my health gets too bad.
