Good Southern girls follow the rules and walk down predictable paths. Jenna predictably married Paul and believed in the happily ever after. Although Jenna played by all the rules, she had no idea the tragic turns her life would take. She needed the support of her husband, his shoulder to cry on, and strong arms to hold her, but he cast an absentee ballot most of the time. Then out of the blue, Jenna crossed paths with a young woman and her life changed in ways that she never would have imagined. For too long Jenna drifted through life searching for answers to understand her desires and uncover her truths. Denial of Jenna's attraction and longing for the woman reigned supreme until one phone call changed everything.

Lately Lesbian is Jenna’s story and my true story. It is the story of an unfulfilling marriage, heartbreak, loss, and the long search to self discovery. One day a phone call changes everything. After a marriage-ending affair, Jenna discovers the abundant power of love and a renewed life.

My book has a happy ending. After years of heartbreak, discovery of an affair, and fragmented relationships with her children, Jenna moves forward with her partner and her life is enriched and renewed!
