About the book:


My Purpose for writing this novel is to bring generations of women together.  My goal is to build a sense of camaraderie that resonates with women of all ages.  For the older generations this novel acts as a time capsule.  

The novel is filled with so many emotions that the reader will laugh, cry, and feel as though the characters have come to life.  As for the younger generations, they are able to learn some of life’s lessons and know that other women have gone through similar circumstances that they may be experiencing.


EXCERPT

He hugged me tightly for so long I wondered if he’d ever let me go.  Our cigarettes developed the longest ashes I ever saw.  As mine finally fell to the ground, I was reminded of how quickly I fell for Johnny and how our relationship had been burning for the last three years.  Eventually, we, too, like that ash, would fall.  We would end up a memory of something that burned so deeply into our souls and it too would eventually turn to ash.

Such thoughts swirled through my mind, as I drove without a destination.  Eventually, I found myself at the park where Johnny and I went that fateful night when he showed me the secret overlook and took my virginity and my innocence.  I decided to park the car, then I grabbed my emergency blanket, flashlight, and cigarettes and walked toward the precipice where it all began.

A tear fell down my cold wet cheek.  I sighed and gave him my heartbreaking answer.  “Honestly?”  I held back my tears as best I could.  “I want you to leave me alone, Johnny.  I want you to love me enough to let me go.  I want you to help me finally get over you by staying the hell away from me.  I want you to stay out of my life and let me be.  Please, Johnny, I’m begging you.
         
“I want to be happy.  I deserve that, and you of all people know it.  Since I can’t have it with you,” I said, crying a little harder, then I deserve to have it with someone else.  So, please, Johnny, if you love me like you say you do, you’ll let me go.”

    1. Thank you! I'm particularly proud of it. It shows the main character's strength, yet vulnerability. She is wise beyond her years yet naive. Throughout the book you'll note she and her love share a romantic spot near a precipice in the woods. Once you read the book, the cover will speak to you on another level. And that's why I chose it.

    1. It was quite a process. I researched other novel's in my genre and studied their covers. My publisher sent me photos which they thought would be a good representation of my work. But once I saw this photo, I just knew it was the one. It speaks volumes without saying a word. And once you read the book, you'll understand it even more.
