Almost two years ago, I sat down with a composition notebook, a pen, and no real ideas for a story. All I knew was I wanted to try to write (as realistically as possible) a novel completely through a woman’s perspective. What I ended up with was Unlove Me, definitely the most personal book I’ve written to date. Because it doesn’t fit neatly into a specific genre, I decided to release it for free on Wattpad. Just click here if you’re interested.
Nearing forty, Hannah has a damn near perfect life. She is a successful HR director of a prosperous software company. She has a lovely home, two beautiful and healthy sons as well as a handsome husband who adores her. Life, on paper, couldn’t be better. But Hannah also harbors a macabre side, and when she–on a whim–purchases a bookcase that can be converted into a coffin, she unwittingly sets a chain of events in motion that force her to confront her troubled past. . .not to mention the many and varied lies she’s told her husband. Equal parts detective mystery and literary character study, Unlove Me, at its core, tackles the age-old question that every spouse must ask him or herself: can you ever really know your partner?
