I should not say so myself I know, but, here's a comment from someone not me:
"...I just wanted to let you know that I loved it. The story and the characters were so very unique, and their romance was beautiful. It really made my day to read such a fantastic novel. Thank you for writing it..."
I can tell you that it made my day to read this feedback!
This is a short novel with two gender-fluid characters fighting their way to acceptance and love through a mist of prejudice and intolerance. But don't be alarmed. It is first and foremost, the most beautiful love story I ever wrote. It exploded out of me, and had to be told, even if it meant dropping everything else (if you saw the state of my vegetable garden this year... *shakes head mournfully*).
In fact even after sending it off toEvernight, I could not stop writing on, so there may be all manners of surprises and bonus scenes, who knows.
-: Woman as a Foreign Language :-
“The woman I wished to become is a man! It’s so typical me.”
Nina’s abusive childhood left her feeling so vulnerable when wearing anything flimsier than combat boots that she has spent her whole adult life dressed like a gang boy. But when she meets the tall, glamourous, charismatic Julia (actually her cross-dressing neighbour, Julian, going out en femme) she is seized by an overwhelming and terrifying urge to finally express her own femininity.
Julia/n has not only a slightly split personality but also a thoroughly broken heart. What s/he wants most is a partner who will love both Julia and Julian. While Nina learns from Julia how to be a woman, Julian discovers that they might well be made for each other, but it will take a struggle against prejudice and a whole conservative mind-set before they can follow their heart, and express their true, unique and beautiful selves.
