Blog Tour: I Have People by Taylor Dean and Amnesia guest post

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Welcome to my post on the blog tour for Taylor Dean’s I Have People. As well as info about the book, Taylor has kindly written a guest post about amnesia; one of the key aspects of the book. I will also be bringing you a review later in the blog tour. I’m so excited to read this, and I think the cover is so adorable and colourful!

Feeling forgetful? Can’t remember where the heck you set down your keys? Your glasses?
 
We’ve all been there.
 
But . . . what if you forgot your life?
 
What if that life wasn’t worth remembering?
 
In spite of the happy cover, I HAVE PEOPLE deals with the sensitive issue of domestic abuse. It is about learning to recognize a good man versus a bad one. It’s about second chances and finding love, real love. 
 
The overpowering message behind I HAVE PEOPLE is that verbal, mental, and physical abuse is NOT OKAY! EVER!
 
Read along and learn Holly’s story. It will change your life.

Taylor Dean lives in Texas and is the mother of four grown children. Upon finding herself with an empty nest, she began to write the stories that were always wandering around in her head, quickly finding that she had a passion for writing, specifically romance. Whether it’s paranormal, contemporary, or suspense-you’ll find all sub-genres of romance in her line-up. 
Amnesia 


I Have People deals with amnesia, which I personally find an intriguing subject. Besides the fact that memory loss makes a story interesting, there are a couple of reasons why I chose to write about amnesia:

1. WORRY

Yes, worry! Let me explain. I have an active imagination. No surprise there! Seriously, I live in a dream world all the time. Why does that cause me to worry? Imagine this: What if I had an accident wherein the results were amnesia? Would I wake up believing that Alex from Sierra (one of my other books) was really my husband? (I mean, he is my favorite hero and I’m totally in love with him.) My hubby would be horribly hurt. Or maybe he would laugh at me since he’s read all of my books and knows exactly who Alex is! I’m not sure! But, you get the idea. My mind is so filled with imaginary characters; who knows what my subconscious would conjure up as the truth! I am completely intrigued by this thought and this is what sent me on my way towards writing I Have People.

2. A CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCE

I, personally, have never experienced memory loss, thank goodness. (If I have, I certainly don’t remember it.) However, I vividly remember my favorite high school English teacher sadly telling us that his wife had been in a bicycle accident. Due to head trauma, the results were amnesia. I’ve never forgotten the incident. His story left a huge impact on me. After all, amnesia seemed like something that only happened in the movies! He updated us often on his wife’s progress and I was fascinated by the story. This experience has always been in the back of my mind–and greatly influenced the writing of I Have People. That’s the way writing works for me. All of my past experiences work their way into my writing. I am continually surprised by this and often think, “Wow, who knew I’d someday use that story in my writing!”

Missing any memories? 

Holly Sinclair is happily married to the love of her life, Gabriel. Young and in love, Holly hopes to have their first child soon. Of course, Gabriel wants to wait till Holly’s health is restored, much to Holly’s dismay. She feels perfectly fine. So what if she just woke up from an eight-month coma? So what if some of her memories are missing? She remembers Gabe and that’s all that matters, right?

That is, until HE enters her life again . . . she forgot about HIM.
