We are new authors whose first book 3,000 Miles To Eternity: A True Internet Love Story was released July 14, 2015.We love the idea that 3,000 miles once brought the two of us closer and now is bringing so many new and interesting people into our lives. Thank you for being one of them.
Duane & Selena
DUANE AND SELENA PANNELL ‘met’ online while living in Virginia, U.S.A. and Alberta, Canada. After a complicated long-distance relationship spanning four years, they married and have a son together. Their first book is borne of yet another separation in their lives when Selena was in Alberta for several months in 2013 with her dying father.
Duane was going through their old correspondence because he is a “mushy man” and realized their story was inspiring and worth sharing. After some coaxing, he convinced Selena and with a little help from Google Docs they began their collaboration on 3,000 Miles To Eternity.
They completed a three year mission in the LDS Addiction Recovery Program May 2015, where they served as group leaders and led two 12 Step meetings a week in Vernal, Utah.
Duane is working on his next project while Selena homeschools their son, teaches archery on the side..
