My emotions are all over the place again. I wrote my love story, Heartbeat years ago. After the bombing in Beirut when over two hundred of our G.I.'s were killed. At the time, all I could think about was the heartache those dead soldiers families suffered. Eventually, these two characters started to talk to me, telling me to write their story. Hence, Heartbeat.
Heartbeat is the story of two young lovers compelled by fate to live apart, yet destined to love each other forever. Moving from Pennsylvania to California and finally war-torn Lebanon, this is a genuine love story.
I don't want characters who suffer the aftermath of this dreadful violence in Lebanon to start talking to me again. Please stop the killing.....Until next time...Debra
