Relationships and how they effect our lives,and When does A Lie Cross The Line? I figured out that a Lie crosses the lie when it is told...I based my books on Human Emotions,and why we do and say the things we do.Love being in the top ten.Its what we all strive to acquire if we admit it or not.Money or things it can obtain were in the bottom. Love is a powerful emotion.. without a little rain we couldn't have rainbows..
