Everyone’s Story is pleased to introduce about-to-be debut author Erica Marie Hogan. I became acquainted with Erica through our mutual publisher, Elk Lake Publishing. As new novelists, these past few months had us exchanging thoughts and waylaying each others’ butterflies from an all out takeover! This week Erica shares about what inspires her to write. Writers, do you see similarities between your inspiration and Erica’s? Readers, are you fascinated by what makes a writer tick? Both Erica and I look forward to hearing from you.
Blurb for The Lost Generation:
On August 5th 1914, the world changed forever. For John and Beth Young, it meant the happiness they finally achieved was snatched out from under them. For Emma Cote, it meant that her husband Jared would do his duty, despite her feelings. For Christy Simmons it meant an uncertain future with the boy she loved. The lives of six people, spread across the British Empire to America were changed forever.
When John, Jared and Will find themselves thrust together in France and Emma and Christy decide to seek out their missing husbands, the lives of these three families intertwine in ways that none of them could possibly have imagined. Working together in a field hospital, Emma and Christy learn to rely on and protect each other. Lost together in a strange forest and cut off from their unit, the three soldiers run and hide.
But the further they go, the more they realize that the chances of all of them making it out unscathed are nonexistent and Emma and Christy find that blood is not easy to wash off, but no friendship is stronger than that made during times of war, sacrifice and healing.
