My first novel, The Insistence of Memory, evolved over many years… and many rewrites! Admittedly, the finished book is very different than my original idea. Yet, I love how it developed with a touch of science fiction and a twist of mystery.
Available in both print and ebook editions
Nothing could prepare Joanne for the secrets her husband left behind…
As she stumbles through each day, trying to raise their daughters alone, Joanne soon learns that Jeff’s basement tinkering had led to a remarkable invention: a machine that can record memories and play them back in someone else’s mind.
Now, Jeff’s partner-in-crime wants to turn their unfinished project into a money-making scheme, while Joanne’s best friend fears the danger of dredging up buried memories.
Joanne’s heartache must take a backseat as she struggles to find a way forward. She’s torn between supporting the future of her husband’s incredible discovery and keeping her own troubled history safely locked in the past.
The story gently bends reality as it explores grief, friendship, and the ethics of privacy.
In 2017, The Insistence of Memory was published exclusively through Amazon. In 2021, a second edition was released for wider distribution. The novel’s original cover was designed by Angel Fischer of Halo Designs and was briefly available on the second edition. You may notice, the current cover features elements and colors inspired by the original design.
