Meet the Author

Jennifer Loren graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Fine Arts Degree, specializing in Architecture and Design, and also obtained a second degree in Computer Design. She currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her German Shepherd, Riley. Since she started writing as a child, her aspirations to be a writer have always been in the back of her mind. During the recent troubling economy, she was laid off along with many in her industry. There was little hope for a job and even less so, when the eye disease, Diabetic Retinopathy, finally took its toll, she lost her eyesight in her left eye completely, and partially in the right. With little hope and little options she retreated into the world she knew as a child and discovered her love for dreaming up stories. The love continued through various surgeries and when she regained a majority of her eyesight, she decided to pursue an old pastime and the new passion in her life.

It is a short story so I read it within a couple of hours and good thing because I couldn't go to bed until I finished. Going to have to check out this author's other books now.

It has been so long since a book has touched me emotionally, I am surprised that this one has done it. Perfect, just perfect.

After years of living on a shoe-string budget, now-popular author Adeline is dying. Her soon-to-be ex-husband tries to trick her into signing all rights to her books over to him, her best friend is trying to have her put into a group-care home, her doctor just writes her more prescriptions as the cancer takes its toll on her body, and the only comfort she finds is from the one man who holds her hand until she falls asleep. When he takes her hand, the pain fades away. But...who is he? Knowing she does not have much time left, Adeline is working on her last book. What she didn't expect was writers block! Will she find a heroine for her hero before it's too late? And how is it that characters from her book are popping into her real life? Even her friends can see and interact with them! Deb, her friend, is quite annoying but Adeline is was so REAL to me I almost cried with her. I really, really enjoyed this short story! It's obvious early in the work that Ms. Loren poured heart and soul into this.

superficial. Read about two chapters.

Although it's a touching story, I had a hard time getting attached to the main character. She just seems crazy to me.

I tried to get into this book but I kept skipping pages. It just wasn't interesting enough for me to keep reading.

I'm missing 1-11 chapters about 17 pages. Not happy! Zero star.
