“Notes from Nadir” is a wacky and poignant look at a Los Angeles-based writer who is forced to return to her Midwestern home due to financial difficulties. She moves back in with her Mom in a semi-retirement community, works a couple of dead end jobs, and meets a sexy British bakery owner. An opportunity to freelance for Gordon or work as a writer/photographer at The Factory in the armpit of Nadir ensures an income. But how long will she be confined in a lifestyle that she has long outgrown?
If noon is Zenith then Nadir is 6:30. And it was 6:29 and counting down. Way down.
“The writer is an amazing story teller. The way she describes even the most mundane events drew me in. I had to know what was going to happen next. I can’t compare this book to any other books I’ve read because it isn’t. If this isn’t a true story, you’ll believe it is.” Clarissa Draper author of The Sholes Key
“I first started reading this memoir through the author’s blog, and I was quickly hooked by her conversational, down-to-earth style. The book – with lots of new content not featured on the blog – follows the author as she leaves behind her LA life and returns to her roots, with lots of vignettes and familial snapshots along the way. A very enjoyable read about trying to fit back into a mould you no longer fit.” Talli Roland author of The Hating Game and Watching Willow Watts
“The author created an interesting story with her notes, the flow is not broken with the short snippets. We see the changes in the relationship between a romantic crush on a boss, and new affection between mother and daughter.” Glynis Smy author of Ripper, My Love and Maggie’s Child
