In the Gary and Stacy Winslow series, I tried to pattern the couple after my wife and I. We have an amazing relationship! In fact, I can't imagine what life would be like without her, but I tried to do just that in the opening of The Compass Society. Gary has run out of luck and life holds little meaning anymore. I've always held on to the hope that each day will be better, and so does Gary. He hopes, but his hope is running out as well. See what you think about this excerpt and please consider reading "The Compass Society"! Who knows, you might like it!
Gary’s depression hit hard and he wasn’t able to focus. He had trouble at work, was given numerous warnings and was finally fired. He tried to find other work, but it just seemed that luck was not on his side anymore. It used to be, but for some reason, his luck had run out. He didn’t know what to do. He thought to himself that his luck ran out the day that Stacy disappeared. Perhaps she was more than his soul mate; perhaps she was everything good in his life and her disappearance made everything good in his life disappear as well. She used to tell him that “Life should always be fun, because if you can’t make life fun, then why live it?”
