Jill's having a midlife menopausal meltdown. Her husband, Nat is oblivious. The teenage twins are impossible. "Hello Jaynie" is a comedic take on marriage, relationships and life.
Meet Jill. Forced to freezer dive for Nate's dream of the largest turkey on the planet, Jill is ready to call it quits on her marriage. The man with the gorgeous blue eyes is no longer the man she married. When her husband lands in the hospital after trying to get the hot bird out of the oven, Jill becomes downsized at work. Her wealthy friend, Jaynie writes a silly advice column in the local newspaper and when she's desperate to go skiing in Aspen, she turns it over to Jill, temporarily. From a distance Jaynie works to keep Jill under her control however, when she breaks her leg in a skiing accident, Jill adds her own spin to the column, and it takes off in popularity. While Nate is laid up, he starts reading the piles of Hello Jaynie letters. He begins to show real insight into women and their struggles. She begins to think of him in a different light. She gets the entire family together to sort through letters and it bonds them in a way she never imagined possible.
About the author
Linda C. Wright grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio and now resides in Melbourne, Florida but she will always be a buckeye at heart. Linda always had a story in her head and as a child she loved to write plays for the neighborhood kids to perform for anyone who would watch. Her favorite photo is of her fourth-grade class dressed in paper grocery bags performing the end of year play she created. To this day, no one is quite sure whether they were playing the parts of peanuts or potatoes. Before becoming a full-time writer, Linda worked hard at being a normal adult by working in finance at a Fortune 500 company. She is an optimist at heart and likes to find fun in everything she does. Linda loves her cockapoo, Pepper, traveling and yoga, which helps keep her busy schedule running smoothly. Linda has written a memoir, "A Bittersweet Goodnight" and her stories have appeared in seven Chicken Soup for the Soul titles.
