AnnaLisa received her Master’s degree in counseling from Gorgon-Conwell Theology Seminary in 2008. While she spent two years post graduate in private practice as a therapist, AnnaLisa spent 13 years in the field of counseling and human services.
When she’s not writing, AnnaLisa is a lover of music and movies. She loves being a wife to Donavan and a mom to her son and daughter. Oh, and she’s also slightly (completely) obsessed with all things Disney!
AnnaLisa lives in Matthews, North Carolina with her husband and two awesome kids.
Jenna Rockwell had everything: the career of her dreams as a nurse, a core group of trusted friends, an outlet to pursue her love of dance, and an apartment in the heart of the great city of Chicago. Add a chance encounter with handsome and charming Landon Scott, and her life couldn’t get any better.
But it certainly could get worse.
The past Jenna ran from six years ago is finally coming for her and she must make decisions that will drastically alter the new life she’s been living. Does she compromise who she is and run the risk of becoming trapped in a life she abhors, or does she run again, dropping off the face of the earth to keep her loved ones safe?
Ultimately, a trail of lies and deceit will force Jenna to choose between a life with or without love. A life with Landon or a life without him.
