An Inherent Similarity Between Persons or Things

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Sometimes you have to be middle-aged to come of age. Kandi turned 40 and her life turned into ultimate cliché. What kept her from being a punchline to a really bad joke was the fact she had just won the lottery. But nothing ever ended up as she expected. Quirky patterns started to emerge. Creepy coincidences. Overlapping fates. And finally finding her true self in the oddest way imaginable. More

About Tuppence van Harn

I write because my head will explode if I don't get it all out and frankly my husband is sick of being woken up at 4 am with ZOMG I HAVE AN IDEA and this is way cheaper than counseling. My first novel was rejected by over 80 different publishing houses in three countries. A few years later I re-read that novel and concluded the publishers were right. Good grief it was awful. I decided maybe I needed to leave it until my retirement years when I didn't have to earn a living, and when I had actually learned HOW to write.

On Thanksgiving 2013, I got tired of waiting around to grow old and figured that creative writing course back in college would have to be sufficient. I penned my second novel, A Season For Joy, in less than 26 days and mostly during my kids' nap time. It felt amazing. I want to do this forever.

As for me personally: I was born in 1971 in California but I currently live in the Netherlands (Holland). Food is my weakness followed closely by architecture. I hate the beach, especially the sand. I don't like nutella. I love good manners. My favorite season is autumn. I think sarcasm is awesome. I have an unhealthy attachment to certain video games. I love historical re-enactments and anything else giving me an excuse to dress up in period clothing. My goal is to be the ultimate housewife: happy kids, happy husband, cook amazing meals, and be able to vacuum without spilling my martini. Sadly, I only seem to have the martini part down. I consider it a work in progress.
