Meet the Author

I write because I have no choice. I publish independently because I can.Noveling is a book in itself; several years and many manuscripts led to my first indie release, 2011′s The War On Emily Dickinson. I write about love, mercy, and equality, among other subjects. I'm also a prolific blogger, usually quipping about the work, but sometimes my husband and children, music and houseplants, hummingbirds, sport, a basset hound, and beaches muscle their way into an entry. Well, one beach in particular, The Hook in Capitola, California.A California native, I started taking fiction seriously in November 2006 when my eldest daughter mentioned NaNoWriMo. We lived in the Britain then, moving back to California in the spring of 2007. I spend an inordinate amount of time with my butt in a chair, focusing on stories I want to leave for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Right now there’s only a grand-basset to consider, but one of these days, my descendants can peruse all I've sent into cyberspace.In the meantime, you can too. And thanks for supporting an independent author.

The most painful love storyline I've read in quite some time. The author tried to tie together too many people/things. The transitions were terrible and I was often going back to reread just to figure out how the story got from one thing to another within a matter of a few short pages. Jeremy spent half the book chasing down Jo, then flipped the script within a page or two. Huh? It seemed someone was crying on every other page. The buildups were pretty good until you got to the thing the author was building up to--then total letdown.

I really enjoyed this book....if you have been through pain but were unable to let it go or let it out...you will relate. Yes it took a while to get there....but i almost think that was the point....i especially liked the e-mails/letters back and forth...very touching and sweet story.

If you want to cuddle up under a blanket on a rainy day and get away from the world for a while, pick this one up. I read it a little bit each night for a week, and I liked it. The only thing I would improve is that I felt like the ending was a little expected and rushed.

I was not impressed with the lack of depth given to each character. I was surprised that 2 topics with so much potential were so poorly defined. If I read 1 more time about Joe in a crying fit, I was going to scream! This novel should have been a short story.

I paid $3.00 for this 560 page novel. It is chick lit. There is a lot of pathos, drama and terrible saddness in this book. It is well edited. It is about a mixed race, African American family and a british actor on the verge of insanity. There is some sterotyping, violence, cursing, sex, infildelity, death, no joy or happiness and so many depressing events, I could hardly read this suppossed romance. It left me feeling feeling so overburdened with saddness, I took a nap, unable to face the rest of the day. This book was not all bad. The novel was well written, it had a good flow and nicely detailed. The plot was not unique. The characters were rather flat. Quite frankly, I wish I had skipped this one. I read to feel good, learn, get away from my problems, for entertainment and to feel enriched. This book satisfied none of my needs. For adult readers. AD

Really? Stereotypical lines like: "He'd never heard her speak more African American..." Writing like this by a white woman perpetuating black stereotypes is rather sad and unfortunate.

This book with it's trauma to the main character was great, how she led her life as a result showing a lack of moral compass and direction caused me to stop reading the book. The book reveals great love between mother and daughter and that should have been healing for the main character.

Just over 500 pages of developing love, heartbreak and healing. The characters were complex and interesting and my heart was in constant fluctuation. Enjoyable, realistic and touching.
