J. Brinkley, author of Sinful Affair
(B Love Publications)
Kiera and Elijah used to be the ultimate high school sweethearts. After marrying in college and enduring challenge after challenge throughout their years together, their marriage fell into ruins.
Numerous disappointments and betrayals broke Kiera down to an empty shell of who she used to be. Now that she has reached her forties, she tries to find her way back to herself by joining a volunteer organization, where she meets a young fitness trainer named Brandon.
Faced with dynamic chemistry and a marriage that is in shambles, Kiera finds herself torn on how she wants to live the rest of her life. Should she save her marriage with a man she used to fall head over heels for, or pursue a man who promises her a life of fun and adventure?

What are some experiences and/or techniques you will take into the next installment in this saga?
PF: Letting the story come out more organically is the best route for my style of writing.
