This is a story about two women who are struggling far more with their past than their present. They are woman who are comfortable in their lives. When something akin to love falls into their laps, life as they know have has been disrupted.
Meredith Frenz has been a professor of English creative writing for over ten years. She was in love once, with a woman whom she thought she would have a life with forever.
Ainsley Jacobs has experienced far more life than a normal twenty-year old has. Her heart and soul are far older than she looks on the outside, but she still struggles with the things college-aged students should.
From the author:
I never thought I would write a romance novel. I love them, I love to read them, but for some reason, I never thought I had the talent for writing them. I was always looking to write more plot. This novel was written as a reaction to reviewers saying I didn’t have enough romance in my novels. Well, I didn’t, but they weren’t supposed to. This one does.
Yes, Memoir in the Making is a traditional romance novel in some senses, but it is so much more than that. It’s a literary criticism on many different aspects on society, it’s an exploration of power roles between two women with very stubborn minds, and it’s a commentary on relationships and how they affect our past, present and future.
This novel is probably my favorite I’ve ever written. Partially because I never thought I’d have the ability to write it, but mostly because it’s not your typical romance. Ainsley and Meredith aren’t your typical women. They’re stubborn, strong-willed, creative, secretive, they each complement each other in ways they never expected, and did I mention they were stubborn?
I sincerely hope you enjoy reading these two women just as much as I enjoyed writing, and yes on occasion, reading them too.
