Joe and Amy engaged immediately, and right after months they began dating and married 4 years later on.

She joined a meeting and met writers in all phases of their careers. The group assisted her understand that she did desire to be an author, and it was her aspiration to see her name on the cover page of one of her novels.

She agreed upon with Mary Sue Seymour at the Seymour Agency in 2006, soon before Joe and she relocated her parents and kids to North Carolina.
