Seven stories in one novel; each one with its own plot and lead character: a stewardess who discovers her judgment may be a little flawed, an older divorcee who finds something far more interesting than sandals at a shoe clearance, a bride-to-be thinking she has a valid reason to call off her wedding, a pudgy ex-wife with a fear that a medical apparatus will make her look like Jacques Cousteau, a newcomer to Florida expecting fair weather and experiencing her first hurricane, but not alone or scared, a daughter in mourning, pursuing the meaning of three tarnished bars held together by a black ribbon, and a doctor who discovers something totally unrelated to medicine that heals a heart problem.
“Throughout these stories, facets of each person’s character are revealed, layer by layer, often with a punch of the Ginger Simpson sense of humor. Delicious! I can think of no better way to spend an evening or lazy afternoon than wrapped in the comfort of her words.” ~ H. Haven

About Author Ginger Simpson:
The “working” Ginger Simpson retired from the University of California as an advocate for students. While there, her involvement in editing and creating publications/forms led her to believe she could write a novel similar to those historical romances she loves so well. And guess what! Ginger’s debut novel was published by small press in 2003. Since then, she has written many more novels and novellas, all but one contracted for publication. Writing is in her blood.
Some of her works has been nominated for awards and recognized as yearly best reads on well-known romance sites. The reviews she has received have been extremely favorable, until trolls starting leaving obvious non-read reviews to hurt those they believe are credible authors. Her debut book received four stars from the Romantic Times Magazine, back when they weren’t known for their openness to e-books. That set the tone for her continued creative juices.
She strives to promote herself in as many ways possible, she maintains membership on Linkedin, Goodreads, Twitter, Triberr and Facebook. She recently added Pinterest to the lot because it garners lots of attention. Despite rumors that men don’t pay attention to Pinterest, her John Wayne board has almost a thousand followers with 99% of those being male. Besides her own website and blog, she strives to find guest slots to help keep her name in the reader’s memory. It’s her belief that promotion is never-ending and the essential key to success. She recently said “if I have to tweet, I will, although I don’t quite understand the entire process”.
Born and raised in California, Ginger never planned to leave, but at an early age, her grandson (Spencer) was diagnosed with developmental delays, and she moved to Tennessee. She used to be his caregiver, but since his Mom switched jobs, she doesn’t see him nearly as much. Some days, she feel like part of herself is missing, but she has to admit that listening to Spongebob, Thomas the Train, and Ninjago music isn’t as inspiring as the smooth jazz she generally enjoys. She takes great delight in knowing she is making a difference in Spencer’s life. Ginger’s husband, Kelly, is a wonderful supporter and her biggest fan. He brags that he is the inspiration behind the romantic scenes in her books. She refuses to confirm or deny his claim.
Ginger truly recognized a dream with the publication of her first book, but her real hope is to see her work more readily available to the general public. With the sudden growth of e-books, she feels encouraged. Now a true senior citizen, she reminds herself that a person is never too old to achieve their goals. Grandma Moses is her heroine.
