indie ebook cover

Wendy Jarrett never thought she'd meet the man of her dreams at a funeral. But when an old boyfriend of her mother's dies, Wendy accompanies her to the beach resort of Cape May, New Jersey for the service. There she meets Adam Lewis, nephew of the deceased, who is tall, gorgeous, and available. Everything seems to be going right for Wendy, until everything starts turning against her. While Adam is undeniably attractive, he is possibly the least romantic person in the world. Wendy then finds out that the dead man's estate includes an ugly old Victorian house in Cape May--and that dead man's will leaves the house to her overbearing mother instead of Adam, the rightful heir. Wendy is also being pursued by a jealous former classmate who is intent on making her life miserable. Wendy decides to take charge of the situation, and drives down to Cape May to figure out exactly why Adam's crazy Uncle Sheldon left the house to Wendy's mother instead of Adam. What she finds there will either set her life on a new trajectory or cause her to miss out on her chance at true love. WREATHED is a new adult humorous contemporary romance about life, love, and the perfect beach house.

About The Author...

indie author

Curtis Edmonds


My name is Curtis Edmonds. I live a very quiet, boring life in the New Jersey suburbs. I am from Texas, and I cook barbecue and Tex-Mex just because that's the easiest way to get them where I live. I read a whole lot of Elephant and Piggie books to my five-year-old daughters. I listen to depressing country songs and balance my checkbook, although you shouldn't do both those things at the same time.

And I write. That is what I have always done. Twenty years ago, I used to write movie reviews, back when I had the time to watch movies. I switched to book reviews because it was easier to get books to review than it was to get DVDs from studios. I wrote four law review articles that no one will ever willingly read. I tried writing political commentary before I realized that the world doesn't need another knothead writing tripe about politics.

Sometime after we moved to our new house, I saw a deer wandering across a railroad track and wondered what the deer would say if he could talk. I wrote that up as flash fiction, and got it into McSweeney's Internet Tendency (http://www.mcsweeneys.net/authors/cur...), along with a lot of other humorous pieces over the years.

I self-publish because I enjoy suffering and misery. I have written two books so far. RAIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY is a poignant, wrenching story about a father’s love, a daughter’s compassion, and the universal need for forgiveness and redemption. It's the story of Will Morse, ex-NFL player and Coca-Cola executive, who lost three of his four children - one from disease, one from accident, and one from suicide. He lives alone in the Appalachian foothills of North Georgia, plagued by guilt and grief. Then, over Christmas, his remaining child tells him that she's getting married in the spring, and that she'd like him to attend.

It's a dark book that touches on deep psychological and physical needs, but there's a warm center, and the possibility of forgiveness and renewal.

WREATHED, the new book, is a lighter book about death, a funeral, an inherited beach house, and two people who might be good for each other if they can trust each other. It's a comic contemporary romance and it comes out in November and you should read it.
