You get one chance at life.
One chance at happiness.
One chance at love… That is until you get two.
Being left behind is all I’ve known.
Left by my mother, my father, by her.
Here one moment, gone the next, never thinking I’d lay eyes on her again until I did.
No matter the cost, no matter the stakes, no matter where my loyalty may lie,
I’m not gonna lose her again.
Light can turn to dark in an instant.
Happiness stripped away in a flash.
Redemption is hard to come by.
A chance that things can change.
A second chance at life.
A second chance at happiness.
A second chance at love.
Leaving was the hardest thing I ever did, but it was the only thing I could do.
Now the choice has been taken from me, again.
Now I have to go back.
Now I have to face my past
Torrie Robles was born and raised in the Central Valley of California; a perfect spot in the state since she’s only hours away from the coast, the beautiful mountains and the big named cities. She currently lives a short distance from her hometown of Clovis, in a small community known as The Madera Ranchos. She’s married and has three children, two boys and one girl. She also has seven animals that live with her family on their property. She’s a city girl living in the country, but not too far from the hustle and bustle of the life, she grew up knowing.
Torrie obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Administration, but her passion has always been writing. A dream she felt was always out of her reach, until she was introduced to the Indie Community. 2015 marked the year she became a self-published author. She writes contemporary romance and plans to branch out as her career takes off. She is currently working on several different manuscripts. She hopes to have them all finished and published throughout her career while continuing to develop new stories and characters to fall in love with.
When she isn’t working a full-time job, writing, raising her children or just taking care of life, Torrie’s biggest hobby is getting lost in books. Her passion for reading and the authors she looks up to has allowed her to make her dreams come true. Her fellow authors have truly been her inspiration.
