BLOG TOUR – Decree Absolute by WA Cooper @junctionpublish

CoverDecree Absolute by W A Cooper

Available from AMAZON

Jessica Barron no longer believes in love.

Her first husband died tragically and she discovers her second husband in flagrante with their children’s nanny. But with the faithless pair gone, her parents holidaying overseas, and her friend Amy in no state to assist, the Leeds divorce advocate can’t juggle the demands of her job with the care of her children, Luke and Gemmy, who she is emotionally estranged from. Jessica needs a new nanny, and fast.

Renée Arden is over relationships. Reeling from a recent break up, the Home Solution Agency owner is temporarily homeless. When Jessica mistakes her for a staff member, the solution is obvious. Renée will step in as nanny.

On their initial meeting Jessica and Renée clash. But desperate times call for desperate measures and the women put aside their differences. Both women, in their own way, need each other.

Renée’s efficient running of the household, enables Jessica to reconnect with her children and their relationship moves from professional to friendship, with the possibility of so much more.

But circumstances and supposed friends conspire against them.

Further heartbreak, hidden truths and secret desires test their fledgling relationship.

Decree Absolute…the end is a new beginning. Or is it?


#Guestpost

Rationale:

There are many over 35+ women out there that have married, had children and then fallen in love with other women. I wanted a chance to write a novel showcasing their journey in a fictional way and Decree Absolute is that starting point for me.

A British television series that shall remain nameless, heavily influenced me. Two women featured strongly in the storyline only to have the ‘let’s kill off one of the lesbians’ troupe play out yet again. More interesting for me was my reaction to this. I felt as if I’d lost a friend; someone I identified with, and I was angry, upset and downright livid.

But the positive of this was I started writing a story I had tucked away many years ago and I haven’t stopped since. I might put my main characters through hell, but I refuse to kill them off!

Lead character:

Jessica Barron is my main character. She is in her early forties, headstrong, single-minded and supposedly straight. But her world, which includes a cheating husband, two children who she is emotionally estranged from and a crippling mortgage, is turned over by a series of events that will test her to her limit. Decree Absolute is Jessica’s journey through this emotional, period of her life and how love can come out of the blue, with a person you least expect. In Jessica’s case it is Renée Arden, the owner of a home assistant agency.

I force the two of them together, which neither of them really wants, then bury them so deep in problems that they have to work together to get through it all.

It is Jessica who undergoes the most change and when finally they are allowed to live their lives together she is a happier, more loving person because of her love for Renée.

Hi my name is Wendy Cooper. Growing up surrounded by books was a given. Dad was a bookseller back in the day and I worked for a publishing company in England on my big overseas adventure. I couldn’t escape the lure of books if I wanted to. For thirty years I was a flight attendant with our national carrier, and still immersed myself in reading on those long tours of duty away from New Zealand. On retiring from that career I settled on the Volcanic Plateau with my partner and two exotic cats who bring us much joy with their antics.

Travel writing and photography diplomas make up the sum total of my academic background. I prefer to inform those who ask, I graduated from the University of Life and am doing post graduate studies for the rest of my life!

I’ve been mentored by two fantastic writers who have helped my writing get to where it is today. Lee Murray and Eileen Mueller thank you for believing in me.

Women’s fiction with strong romantic themes (mainly gay women, but not exclusively) seems to be where my genre lies. Once I’ve written all the stories I have on my ‘To do’ list, I might try fantasy. There’s a blind dragon who has befriended a fairy who can’t fly. They would like their story told. Amazon Author Page…
