Memoir Trilogy, Book II

THE SWEET PAIN OF BEING ALIVE. Ann didn’t think much about secrets until she woke up one morning and found her husband Terry dead of suicide. They were both healthy and seemingly happy, so she was blindsided. As she made her way toward uncovering the reason why he had left this life, she changed the way she viewed gender, sex, marriage, right, wrong, good, and bad.

Memoir Trilogy, Book III

THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY, pays homage to Henry James’s book of the same name. As a child, Ann, like her friends, had no future ahead of her other than marriage, and when she hasn’t managed to marry by the time her friends were having babies, she left America to see how things were done in other countries and lived for eleven years in Spain, Israel, Italy, and Greece. Like James’s protagonist, Isabel Archer, her trusting American nature proves no match for the more conspiratorial nature of older cultures. She returns home a more seasoned and sophisticated woman.
