    Have you ever read something or seen something done by another person and thought, I could do that I m sure we all have had those thoughts throughout the course of our lives Mine came early in 2013, I had just finished reading a book and when I was done I felt disappointed The characters were okay, I wasn t really feeling the storyline and it was just average I thought I could have done this better and then I continued on to the next day and that thought was lost Not soon after that my husband and I were trying to complete our wills I was a little overwhelmed with all the options and scenarios at play in the documents we had to complete This then launched a long discussion over what our wishes were if either one of us passed away Questions like What if one of us passed away while we were still young Would the other person remarry Where would we want to be buried I was from CT and he was from TX, we don t have any ties to NC and you can t move a body once it s settled These thoughts kept running through my mind for the next several weeks whenever my mind wandered Finally, I realized this would be a great plot for a story, a story worth telling, but again I pushed it out of my mind and continued on.Skip ahead to the summer of 2013 My husband and I vacationed with friends and family on Oak Island, NC It was a wonderful vacation, finally able to break away from the daily grind of life and unplug from our constant binging devices It was here one morning during a long run on the beach, that I thought about those characters I had imagined several months prior In my mind, they had names and a story that needed to be told I could see Jill and feel her pain and I knew that Oak Island would be the perfect place for her to recover, but how would she get there, what journey would she travel I thought about this story almost every day while at Oak Island, but again I did nothing.Finally, about a week or two after the beach, I was home alone one night and couldn t find anything to watch on the 200 plus channels we had on TV I sat down in our office, put on some music and started to put words on the page It started with I love you and I love you too The story just flowed and before I realized it, it was almost 3 o clock in the morning The next day I got up and again and wrote I couldn t type fast enough It was like I was watching this movie in my head and I was trying to transcribe it as fast as possible.After about 30 or 40 pages, I stopped and asked my husband to read it I wanted to make sure it was readable and relatable Not being his genre of book, as he prefers high speed chases, fights and mysterious treasure, I was worried he wouldn t relate to this story But with his encouragement I pressed on For the next several weeks, I would go to work, come home and write until 2 or 3 o clock and on the weekends, when able Before I knew it I had 312 pages of an untitled novel At this point no one but my husband knew what I had been doing, it was a secret Not intentionally, but I didn t have any answers to the questions they might ask What if it was a bad book What if it never saw the light of day and then what would I tell them In this regard I was also able to write without any expectations I could write freely.I finally got up the nerve to tell a very small group of close friends and I asked them to read it and share their thoughts I had a working title of Lights out or When the lights go out But as I was editing the story for the second or third time I can t remember any I found Jill in her bedroom alone having fought a tough journey for over a year and it ended with safe and sound As I typed those last words, I knew that was the title, I knew that was it.From there started a new journey of publishing, but that is a different story for another time Safe Sound was a story that came together from a combination of different events in my life, but the most important being that I finally asked myself, why not me I see all these other people writing and doing things they are truly passionate about and why couldn t I be doing that I wanted to write a story I wanted to read Why should I wait for someone else to come up with that, when I have the ability and the desire to do so I even wrote, why not me on my journal where I keep ideas and sketch outlines I want to remind myself that the idea of me being an author isn t as crazy as I imagined and I shouldn t let any worries I have stop me because I didn t have a really good answer for why not me I sincerely hope you enjoy reading Safe Sound, as much as I enjoyed writing it With Love,T.S Krupa

    I have never felt the tremendous pain that the loss of a significant other brings on one s life, but T.S Krupa s newest novel, Safe and Sound, transported me right into the life of Jill Greenfield an elementary school teacher who lost her husband in a tragic accident I felt the loss, joy, resentment, and excitement of every character in a story that will appeal to any reader From page one, I was drawn into the novel This book is about much than the loss of a loved one It is a story of finding oneself in the midst of great tragedy and the overcoming of that grief only to find a new person, a new you, waiting on the other side Jill Greenfield s experience is made into your experience as you watch her story unfold with mystery, suspense, and unexpected love I found myself not being able to put the book down Every page brought about unexpected twists and turns that kept my attention throughout the entire novel Just when I believed I had a character or a situation figured out, I was quickly made to realize I had no idea what was really at play Since I finished the book, I cannot stop raving about it I have never posted a review of any novel on a public forum However, I could not let this opportunity pass by Safe and Sound deserves to be read by everyone Its relatable story line and emotionally raw characters gave me a chance to escape from the busyness of everyday life and get lost in a great book I would recommend this to any and everyone who appreciates a story that needs to be told Buy this book You will not be disappointed.

    arc received in exchange for an honest review to be honest I m a bit on the fence with this story , I felt it was somewhat interesting and whilst it was a good read it had a lot of emotion, I loved the strength that came in Lanie and Stella for Jill, I think it lingered in grief than recovery for a little too long maybe that s just me its a weird one I guess because if I lost my other half grief would be never ending I just don t know if I like it in books , all in all a good read though so I give 4 stars
