And So It Begins…Free To Leave Excerpt

Here is a bit from the prologue of our debut novel, Free to Leave… Jana is embarking on her post-divorce life.

I’ve played out this new life a million times in my head. All fantasies of an impossible someday. Some women I know would wilt under the pressure of having to start all over again. And I might too except for one fact. I have the best friends a girl could ever wish for. Most would consider themselves lucky to find one such “would-help-you-bury-a-body-then-take-you-to-Hawaii-to-drink-and-forget” BFF. I have three. They’re the ones who watched Jillian while Jake and I talked out the details of our divorce, took me shopping for “new you” clothes that didn’t reek of failed marriage, and sent me congratulations balloons the day my divorce was final.

Rylie, Vanessa and Maura have been and will always be my saving grace. Truthfully, they may even be part of the reason my marriage slowly circled the drain. In my heart of hearts I knew that Jake would not always be there for me. He doesn’t handle problems well – he’s not one to consider he has any responsibility for the challenges our marriage faced or that he had any power to change things. They say people reveal themselves in times of crisis. And whenever a crisis happened to me, or us, it was never a redeeming moment for Jake. It was always The Girls who picked me up.

I know I will never have a relationship that’s more important than the one I have with The Girls. No one knows how to cry harder, laugh louder, and have each others’ backs like the four of us do. They’re the reason I don’t feel the need to sit in my robe and blow snot into tear-drenched tissues every day. I did that for 48 hours. On the second day Rylie came over, and after trying to reason with me sweetly, literally shook me until I snapped out of it. Sometimes you just need someone to smack you across the face when you’re being a stupid whiny bitch. I’d do the same for them and they know it.

Now it’s time to get to it: Jana 2.0. It’s hard to know which direction to go when you thought, no matter how delusionaly, you’d be part of someone else’s forever.

Free to Leave is scheduled to be published December 21st on Amazon and other retailers.
