Dear Readers,
Fragmented was born out of my love for mysteries. It was also born out of my love for my community. Fragmented is set in Boston. Boston is my adopted home. I moved up here from the deep South back in 1985.Fragmented is dedicated to the people of my adopted home. During the marathon bombing, I have never been prouder of the place I call home. If you’re not from Boston, you might not realize what the Boston Marathon is to the city. It’s huge. The bombing was something that wasn’t supposed to happen in our country…our home…our Boston.
I wasn’t in Boston when one of the suspects was killed and the other caught. I had flown out earlier that morning. I had gone back to Mississippi. While I was flying down South, the city of Boston was on lock down. I listened to travelers talk about Boston and I couldn’t have been prouder of the people. The people of Boston did what they needed to do.

After the danger passed, it left the victims to pick up the pieces of their lives. In the immediate, the hearts of everyone opened up and gave. At the time, I pledged a week’s royalties and I did donate. I split what I gave between two charities. I pledged to do more. One of the things I comprehended quickly was how horrific some of the injuries were. They were life changing. Some of the victims have lifetime disabilities. I don’t want to forget the victims. In most crisis situations, I can’t do more than give a donation to a cause.But with the Boston Marathon bombing, I wanted…needed to do more. In the community I grew up in, when someone was in need, people gave what they could. Giving is a quality that I was instilled with as a child. It’s who I am. I want to give what I can. So I decided to give a part of me… my writing.This I pledge to you. I will donate half of my royalties that I get from Fragmented to a charity in Boston. Know this pledge comes from my heart. I wanted to do something that would keep giving. To me, this is not a temporary gift. It is my intention for this to be a permanent arrangement.I hope you enjoy Fragmented. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,Colleen Connally
