I clicked and enjoyed. I always enjoy your clear and beautiful writing. Your experience is ideally suited for writing this novel. I believe people will not only be entertained, but learn from your characters. I am writing my current novel in third person, although I find first person to be more riveting.

I recall reading an elective book for a senior college puff course I took in Marriage and Family that was a collection of the stories of real prostitutes, women I had heard about, but not experienced at that time. What amazed me was the variety of backgrounds these women came from. They were all individuals first and last, and not some stereotype that probably most people think prostitutes are.

I've had the good fortune to have befriended a former prostitute over the past fifteen years or so. She was slow to tell me because her past had been so traumatic and I hadn't asked. Gradually, the truth came out, including the abusive father, the murder she committed and served time for in self-defense, the gang rapes, giving up her only son, and the drugs, all things that belied her sweet and religious personality.

She has asked me to write her story. We talked about it last weekend. Unfortunately, she doesn't write well, and doesn't remember details that would make the story more real to the reader. I'm torn about it, but might try a beginning to see how it works out.

I took a chance and walked on the wild side by clicking on your link, and enjoyed the cab ride through the premise and background of your novel. You certainly have the credentials to drive a story steeped in realistic plots and characters. Gritty realism appeals to me as a reader, and I will keep this novel in mind. I used to be such an avid reader, but now my time is tempered by writing my own novels. Best wishes for much success.
