Just Like Other Daughters is now available!
I'm so excited about the release of my new book. It's a first for me in many ways. This is my first women's fiction novel after writing romance, mystery and suspense for many years. The book is also told in first person, which I found to be challenging even though it was the right way to tell this story. The reader hears the mother, Alicia's point of view, but also catches glimpses of daughter Chloe's thoughts. Chloe is a 25 year old woman with Down syndrome. When Chloe falls in love, Alicia struggles with trying to protect her daughter, while giving Chloe the freedom she deserves. And everyone deserves to love and be loved. The book is about the love between parents and children, but also the love between friends, and between mentally challenged adults.
