Overview

"A quick-tempo novel that will strike a chord with women's fiction fans... fresh, poignant and funny." ~ Kirkus Reviews

Singer-songwriter Christine Daley hit the streets of Boston and became a minor celebrity-with a local radio hit-in the 90s, but a "brief" career break to marry and start a family changed all that.

Sixteen years later, she's struggling to reestablish her sense of identity. After filing for divorce, forty-six-year-old Chris quickly learns that the challenges she faces are even greater than anticipated, with two teenage children, and with her soon-to-be-ex-husband throwing every possible obstacle in her way.

"Mary Rowen has written one of the truest novels ever about Boston's indie rock world. Full of sharp details and vivid characters... It beautifully explores the question of what drives an artist and how that can or can't be reconciled with the straight world." ~ Brett Milano, Boston Rock Journalist

EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a newly revised and edited second edition of a critically-acclaimed literary/women's fiction piece sure to capture your imagination.

About the Author

AUTHOR: I'm drawn to stories about women facing and overcoming challenges at various stages of life, so I love reading and writing women's fiction. Music, musicians, and music fans tend to find their way into my work too. Other interests include feminism, body image issues, parenting, and current events. I blog about that stuff and more whenever I can. My essays have been featured on numerous sites and blogs, including Mutha Magazine, Feminine Collective, and Huffington Post. A graduate of Providence College, I was raised in the Massachusetts Merrimack Valley, and live in the Boston area with my family and pets.

EDITOR: In 2014, I eased into editing. A critique group made its way onto my priority list. If a writer buddy needed a beta read, I jumped at the chance to apply a critical eye as well as positive reinforcement to the task. With every project I worked on, whether writing or offering constructive criticism, I aimed to improve my craft as I helped my fellow author. Becoming an editor wasn't my goal, but as I learned more about the mechanics of writing, a natural evolution occurred. My editing skills grew at a much more rapid pace than my writing skills did. Since 2014, I've edited countless anthologies, novels, and independent short works from various authors. I wish I had counted. That number would be pretty handy right about now. My primary focus is on speculative fiction, but I'm also interested in women's fiction and romance.
