Catherine Boyd will do anything to regain custody of her young son, even reconcile with the husband accused of killing their son’s twin.

In Theresa Rizzo‘s novel “He Belongs to Me” Catherine graduates from college, eager to start a new life with her six-year-old son Drew. But when she tries to bring him home, her parents refuse to relinquish control of the grandson they’ve raised.

Wrongly accused of a horrible crime, Thomas Boyd has buried himself in his career, determined to forget his painful past and the family he lost. But now, five years later, Catherine is back, asking for his help to regain custody of their son – custody he thought she had.

Though older and wiser, when courtroom battles reveal lies and secrets and generations of pain, will Thomas and Catherine find more tragedy and loss, or will old wounds finally heal?

The Indie Author Life

Now here’s a grateful author. This, from Theresa Rizzo’s website:

I’ve finaled in many writing contests and even won a few. I’ve been privileged to travel to wonderful, interesting places like Maui, Seattle, San Diego, Crested Butte, Nashville, and more to attend writing conferences. I’ve met and befriended many charming best-selling authors such as Susan Wiggs, Jodi Picoult, Terry Brooks, William Bernhardt, Don Maass, David Morell, Catherine Coulter, Joan Johnston, James Scott Bell . . . and the list goes on…

And then the best blessing being, not just my supportive family but, all my writing pals and agent/editor friends I’ve made –all because of the journey. THAT’S the true brass ring.

Sure it’ll be great to see my book in print one day, however people will love it, some will not, I’ll have other headaches, insecurities and worries, but my friends will remain a constant joy and blessing. And I wanted to get that message out before I got published ’cause it’s easy to claim that, once you have the perceived “brass ring”, but I don’t have that yet and I’m still loving the journey.

And it’s those blessings that keep me coordinating The Sandy writing contest and co-coordinating the Crested Butte Writers Conference.

I get huge joy from writing. I’m proud of my rejections. They signify effort and time put into my career. While this video shares the tough aspect of the business, it’s meant to be an inspiration and celebration. An entertaining way to remind me of all the blessings writing has brought me.
