What inspired you to write your book?
An article I read in the local paper
Here is a short sample from the book:
Harry called when we were in the car on our way to the gym. He was the sweetest boss ever, always so comforting and supportive. He’d been an anchor during the times of great turbulence in my life.
A few weeks ago, he’d asked me to step up and replace him as accounting VP after his retirement. I was deeply moved by his vote of confidence. Taking the job meant a bigger paycheck, but it also meant huge responsibilities, including working seventy hours a week. I wasn’t sure I was up to par. When I expressed my hesitation, Harry reassured me that I could do it. He even set up a meeting for me with the named partners where, with trembling hands, I found myself applying for the executive position.
My colleagues had congratulated me as if the job was already in my pocket. Everyone said I was the most suitable person for it. Harry had even begun training me. He joked about me getting the gist so quickly, he could retire two months earlier than planned. I was happy and proud, but still trembling a little inside afraid I was going to fail miserably. After all, I’d proved to be a failure as a wife and as a mother.
“Listen, Bublah,” Harry said. My heart sank. “I had a meeting with Sheila and Ronnie late last night. I’m afraid they’ve decided to take a different direction.”
