What makes you happy?
That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.
And then, I got in his car.
It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.
We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers.
One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.
Discovering his journal changed everything.
I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.
I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.
Weightless, Revelry and now On The Way To You are stories that once I finished by this author I have sat back and did a lot of self reflection. Steiner has a way creating words that touch my soul. A lot of the topics in this story hit close to home because I have a dear friend in this situation. I’m so happy the author wrote about a subject matter that often gets overlooked and has such a horrible stigma associated with it as well. Cooper and Emery are introduced to each other while both of them are at a crossroad. Cooper despite be given a cruddy hand at life has chosen to be optimistic and has such a positive attitude. Emery is going through his own struggles and is taking one day at a time trying to find his light. I loved how Cooper was the light to Emery’s darkness and she made him want to keep fighting. I did have a little trouble connecting with Emery but despite that I still enjoyed this story and it’s message. This is the kind of story that will make you look deep within yourself and ask are you living or just existing? Well done, Kandi Steiner.

About the Author:Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer. Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies). When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
