The Unraveling of Abby Settel is my solo project. It is not a cozy but is a story that speaks to most women. It was released just this week and I can’t begin to describe how thrilled I am to see my manuscript turned into a real book!
I find it an interesting challenge to shift back and forth between writing the Novel Idea cozies with Jennifer and my own women’s fiction. I’ve always been in awe of the cozy writers who write more than one series at a time, wondering how they keep it all straight in their heads. And one day I realized that’s what I was doing too. I have to keep switching my brain from characters in a cozy little town dealing with a murder, to real-life situations that someone like you or I cope with in our lives (not murder!). I’ve certainly had a whirlwind introduction to the life of an author, and I’m having a blast.
I hope you give it a try, and read how Abby coped with her mid-life reinvention. What was your biggest mid-life change? Did you move? Start a new career? Become an empty nester? How did you face the challenge?
