It was four years ago that I published Fate Chooses, a novel about a woman searching for her long lost sister. I wrote it because I actually did have a long lost sister.
A confluence of old and new clues came together on April 7, 2017, and my daughter, Maggie, and my sister, Leila, found our sister, Karen, thus bringing the four Riley sisters together at last. In the photo, from left to right, Leila, Pat, Pam, and Karen. In Fate Chooses, the protagonist finds her sister in another country. In real life, we found our sister in another country.
It has been a joyful reunion. Everyone tells me I should write a book about it, but, in a way, I already have.
