KL Palmer calls herself the working mother’s author. Even though she hasn’t (yet) written a book on how to be a better mom or how to incorporate your personal life into your long work day; she did follow her dream and write a novel. She hopes to inspire other working moms to write, or follow their dreams wherever they lead, and not give up.
One thing that sets her apart from other authors is her propensity to write with ‘break‘ chapters in mind – chapters short enough to take a bathroom break, commercial break, or smoke break away from life, each averaging 2 to 3 pages. She wants to bring back reading to busy people’s lives; to show busy people that you can, in fact, enjoy a book and take the time for yourself; and to do so with the limited and precious spare time you have.
Born and raised in a quiet Amish-surrounded community in Pennsylvania, she now resides in Tennessee with her family. In addition to being employed full time in a corporate real estate position, KL Palmer remains passionate about her church and her writing. She jokes that her mind never shuts off. Even in the most inopportune time she’s jotting down ideas for the next manuscript. Don’t tell her boss!
Twice as Different
Pam Taylor exudes strength and independence. She prides herself on her courage and determination. She is also a single mother to twin daughters who are identical on the outside but complete opposites in the personality department. On a good day life is, well, challenging to put it mildly.
But life has a way of shaking things up, and Pam experiences fresh trials and tribulation just as her daughters are about to start their all-important senior year in high school. Her company downsizes at the same time that her mother gets a devastating health diagnosis. To be there for her mom means Pam will have to relocate to the other side of the state, which mean uprooting the girls from the home they love, the friends they have grown up with, and their familiar school.
The stresses of caring for a sick parent, dealing with a rebelling daughter, and just trying to pay the bills brings Pam to her knees to seek wisdom from the God she wishes she was closer to.
Will Pam find the strength and wisdom required to survive the chaos? Is it possible to find love again after all these years?
And… is that really a ghost?
