When Lance Secretan’s soul mate, Tricia, passed away, he was brokenhearted. During the darkest days of his grief, he wondered how he could draw a message of hope and joy for others from his own sadness. Everyone admired, and was inspired by, Lance and Tricia’s happiness together and frequently asked them to share their secrets. Lance felt the world needed to hear from behind the scenes about their remarkable union.
Over the 30 glorious years of their partnership, Lance had written many poems for Tricia. Lance is best known for his expertise in leadership and as an advisor to leaders, not as a poet, so he was hesitant about sharing this private part of his life. Lance describes the arc of his and Tricia’s lifelong romance by wrapping the story of their journey together around 25 never-before-published poems. The result: A Love Story: An Intensely Personal Memoir, was released December 2015.
It is a beautifully designed book, crafted in the old-fashioned way, and the reviews—loaded with glowing praise—have been extraordinary.
If you yearn for true love, have found it, or are rediscovering it, tune-in for an inspiring interview.
