Okay, before you discard this blog as ‘oh, just another 2nd edition’ let me tell you this is the LAST one! We finally got through my tremendous backlog of books, had them tweaked, edited, and even new covers made for many. This was my first published book, my first published anything actually.
I wrote SHIPS in 2003 over the course of two weeks. A story had come to me so strong that I felt it was like an exorcism to get it out of my brain and onto the computer. I thought about the plot, the story line, while I worked. Fortunately, I was self-employed running an international company and could multi-task like that. I didn’t know if I was a lesbian, but a story about lesbians is what came to me and the result was SHIPS. Something told me, either finish it ASAP or you will NEVER finish it…I met my first girlfriend after a week of writing….
SHIPS was tweaked many times before I got up the courage to actually publish it in 2011. I didn’t have editors then and did the ‘best’ I could at the time. Still, it’s a strong story and now that it has been edited, even makes me more nostalgic for the familiar story.
If this is your first read of this story, I hope you enjoy it. If you’ve read it before, it’s now not really different, but definitely better.
Have you ever met a person that you just were in sync with? You knew immediately that they were someone special for you? Would you know how lucky you were? Would you know they were the one?
What do you do when you fall in love with a woman, when you thought you were straight? Dealing with this unusual relationship brings a lot of “firsts” to Joan’s life.
Joan is a world-renowned artist who has always identified as straight, has three children, and is content with her life when she meets Grace, a respected psychiatrist who also happens to be a lesbian. Joan is conflicted and has to deal with her feelings, the incredible woman she finds herself in love with, and the relationship that occurs over the next twenty-years.
