I don't trust people who follow their hearts.
Hearts are peculiar things. They're necessary muscles that keep us alive by pumping blood and oxygen into our veins. Hearts are also compulsory, often making us foolish. They pull us towards others with a force that aches, burns, and satiates you all at once. Before you know it that mass of tissue is no longer yours.
Maybe mine never was.
In my case, that draw came from a stranger that left my heart feeling both fulfilled and consumed.
I didn't expect to fight her for the last standby seat to New York City. I didn't plan on letting her get under my skin. Or the way her vulnerability tore me up inside and compelled me to care for her. She didn't plan on letting me witness her chaos.
Her anxious heart and my perfectionist mind let things get messy.
And though we didn't plan for it, our interrupting of each others' lives was exactly what we needed. Sometimes the mess is the most beautiful part of life.

About the Author
Stephanie Alba has wanted to write for as long as she can remember. Writing was always a way to express herself, as well as an escape. In August of 2014, Stephanie decided to start writing a story that she dreamed about. At first it was just something fun for her to do, a way of keeping her sanity during her first year as a stay at home mom. Over the months she couldn't stop writing and that's where For Both Are Infinite came along. Rhys and Ellie's story was hard work, but it allowed her to fulfill the goal she'd always had of writing a novel. Before becoming an indie author, Stephanie taught high school English. Now she is a stay at home mom to the happiest baby ever, a wife to an amazing husband, and a graduate school student. She also hopes to continue writing. When she's not glued to her laptop or with a notebook in her hand, she's swimming, running, reading or chasing her toddler. Stephanie is currently working on her second novel, a friends to lovers story that takes place in Washington state set to release fall 2015. She also plans on writing more of Ellie and Rhys' story, as well as stories focusing on other characters you meet in For Both Are Infinite.
