For any of you who have ever wanted to write a book you can imagine the thrill when it’s finally finished. Moving characters along page by page becomes an emotional journey for the writer. Bringing Jerry to life was that emotional journey for me. Finding a happy ending for him became my personal reward.
Jerry is a fictional character suggested by my husband when I was scrambling for a story for the 2018 NaNoWriMo, a 30 day, 50k rough draft novel writing challenge. His idea to write about a homeless man is how Jerry was born.
Jerry is a reminder for me of how easily a person can lose their way. Jerry Resurrected is a symbol that with a little help from others, there can be happy endings.
