Jennifer Nielsen awakens one morning to a life that doesn’t belong to her. Thrown back eight years into the past and again married to her ex-husband, she struggles to make sense of the situation. Longing to return to her current life with her real husband and two children, she seeks out answers — and a way “back home” — wherever she can find them. Is she crazy, did her present day life ever exist, did she time travel? And if so, how will she get back and what will be sacrificed?

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I think you might have to ask my readers, because I apparently don’t seem to have one set genre, or even a genre that my book could be classified under. I like to say it is a love story with science-fiction twist. I am not sure how it is different from others since I have been told repeatedly, there is nothing out there like it.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Just keep going — don’t stop, don’t let “no” discourage you. Writing is something that you do for your soul and sometimes we are lucky enough to find people that appreciate that. Don’t expect overnight success, fame, or a publishing deal, it may not ever happen. But writing a book is hard and when you finish it, that is quite an accomplishment in itself.
