Here I am at the age of 90 believing that I can write a book. Would I or anyone who knows me think such a thing possible? At the beginning of 2020, I don’t think so. Still I wanted to do it. I really do love to dream up scenarios and try to get them into some kind enjoyable reading. Hence, my husband, my children, and the few friends I have still standing have tolerated my efforts for the last many months.
My first attempt at fiction writing was a modest success. TARNISHED sold a few and received positive feedback from the READERSFAVORITE organization as well as many of my readers. This spurred me on, and the result is a fictitious saga about everyday life and the decisions we all must make while living it. I have attempted to include the foibles that arise in many of us as we try to survive, prosper, and still be human.
In Heartless Ambition there are two main characters; one who works constantly to become successful on his own merit, and one who is constantly manipulating others for his. The resulting disastrous “meeting of the twain”, becomes the main plot of the book. In my long life, I have seen the ogre in all of us triumph over our intentions not to injure anyone along the way.
Please enjoy the narrative, the characters, and situations they find themselves in.
