From Yale Med to Yale Ed.

It all started for Eric Goodman with his love for reading and then writing scripts for film, screenplays and then he started his non-fiction career freelancing for women magazines. Travel articles and blogs came next as he and his wife and their young child travelled through South-East Asia.

Eric published his first two novels in his 20’s – moving on a few years he’s just released his 6th novel, Cuppy and Stew.

This is a heart-wrenching tale of love, loss and a bit of luck.

The first part of the book tells a historical love story about how Susan Morgan, Eric’s (the author actual) wife, fills in missing pieces of her parent’s first meeting. Their love story. That’s what makes the beginning fiction. What makes this first half of the book historical, is the tragedy that followed. Susan and her sister’s parents were on board United flight 629 to Denver, which happened to be the first passenger flight on record that had been bombed. A psycho wanted to kill his mother and claim on her insurance and so stuck a bomb into her suitcase.

Sadly only 12 minutes into the flight the plane exploded killing everyone on board, including Susan and her sister’s parents, known lovingly as Cuppy and Stew. The girls were only 12 and 14 at the time.

What follows the next half is the story is how the two sisters grew through their grief by dealing with it in two different ways. However, both suffered emotional and physical abuse, as told in Susan’s memoirs.

The luck part comes into play, as their parents took out life insurance and instead of someone being the guardian of the money until the children came of age, Stew’s boss and lawyers had the sensible idea of having a bank keep the money until the girls were old enough to receive it. This payment allowed Susan to go to university, where she studied hard and then has had a prospering career. However, her sister took a different path. She never got to study, and sadly passed away earlier than she should.

If that story is not enough to grab your interest wait until you hear about the book he’s nearly finished called Curve Ball.

I enjoyed chatting with Eric and learning more about his incredible talent and the career he’s had so far. Enjoy this episode of Behind The Pen.

No one evades Fate. Especially when the escape route is cracked and full of holes.

As a naïve young woman, Marité Muro nearly drowned in a maelstrom of confusing emotions stirred by two very different men. One whose tortured soul tugged at her heart, another whose scorching touch made her innocent body want…more.

Four years in a Spanish prep school gave her time to gain perspective, and now she’s come home to Florida knowing what she wants. The one man she’s never been able to forget, and she’s ready to prove their age difference is no obstacle.

Viet Nam left scars on Brian MacKay, some visible, some invisible—and infinitely more dangerous. His war buddy’s little sister has ripened into a tempting, irresistible woman, but she is forbidden fruit. Yet she challenges his resolve until, in a moment of weakness, his demons slip free.

Marité isn’t sure why the man who held her closer than skin is suddenly holding her at arm’s length, but she isn’t afraid to fight for what she wants. Even when someone returns from the past who could destroy everything. Her home. Her family. And Brian’s love.  ❤

Book Description:

Destiny can show the way home…if it can navigate the shadows of Fate.

Brian McKay’s love for Marité Muro burns with the heat of an eternal flame. But when he catches her cousin, Michael, forcing an unwanted kiss upon her, Brian’s jealousy comes dangerously close to flaring out of control.

In a moment of despair, he packs his bags and boards a plane for Round Rock, convinced Marité will be better off with anyone else. Someone younger. Someone who isn’t dragging around a crippling load of baggage—and PTSD-fueled demons.

Anger tears at Marité’s heart as she flees to her Abuela’s home. Anger at Brian for abandoning her so easily. At Michael for trying to reignite their past infatuation. Mostly, anger at herself for realizing too late that it’s past time to grow up, take responsibility for her own part in the debacle, and fight for the only man she’ll ever love.

But Fate has a few more tricks to play before Brian and Marité find the strength to reconcile. Some that haunt Brian’s war-torn mind. Another threatening from Michael’s dangerous ambitions. And one tiny, fragile miracle growing under Marité’s heart, with the power to heal their past and seal their future. If it lives long enough to draw its first breath…
