My latest novel-to-be is inspired by a short story called Heartfire, which I wrote on April 9, 2016 from this prompt: literal hearts on fire. It was one of my favorite short story worlds to inhabit, and when I glanced back into it two years later, I realized how much potential lay within it.
To summarize… imagine a world where heartbreak manifests in heartfire. Your heart, quite literally going up in flames. What does that world look like? Is love worth the risk? After all, nobody goes into love expecting it to end in heartbreak.
