Breeding In Captivity
available now on Amazon. Jessica's true story takes place in tony Del Mar, CA and Manhattan. While many female authors have written funny, upmarket, “Sex-in-the-City-esque” novels (Devil Wears Prada, In Her Shoes, etc.), few have dared to cast the lead character a single mother, let alone one who is about to give birth to her second. While the circumstances are dark, this book’s voice is fresh, inspirational and funny and leaves all women, single, married, young or old, feeling stronger in their own standing. In a down economy, readers will also enjoy the books Riches-to-Rags roller coaster.
In her novel, Jessica touches on :
Divorcing While Pregnant
Single Mother Hood
Why she was inspired to set her novel in SD’s North County
Infertility/Longing to have children at a later age
Difficult moments (when strangers asked how excited “we” were and patted her tummy, having their water shut off and baby wipe bathing, breastfeeding in her lawyer’s conference room, giving birth alone, etc.)
The message she’d most like to get across, especially with some of the unkind messages out there (Rep. Santorum’s) is: we ARE families too, and strong, whole and happy ones! I couldn't agree more. I wish you the best Jessica!
