Since the age of 13, N. Wood Lane has
dabbled in and out of writing.
Lane once aspired to live in Brazil and start a newspaper in Rio de Janiero. The closest Lane has ever visited the Southern Hemisphere destination point was by renting videos from Blockbuster featuring actress Sonia Braga. Lane’s affinity for Brazil also includes rooting for the country during soccer’s World Cup and its music—but to this day still does not know Portuguese.
Back in the mid-1990s, Lane aspired to write a novel after reading Connie Briscoe’s Sisters and Lovers and Terry McMillan’s Waiting to Exhale. That aspiration never became a reality until Lane was well past age 40.
These days, Lane considers writing a way of remaining mentally engaged since attaining AARP membership eligibility. Lane currently resides in South Carolina and has been in the insurance industry since 2001.
All should be smooth sailing now that Trent Buckner’s finally gotten it right with his wife Sonia. But in Sonia’s pursuit for pleasure—in mind, body, and soul—Trent may not be doing enough to keep her happy.
Will family bonds be strengthened and remain intact? Or will they be forever broken? Decisions do have consequences.
After several years of marital futility, Sonia Buckner declares she’s tired of faking it with her husband Trent. She demands that he listens to her so that he might learn about why she’s in this rut. She lectures to him the woman’s mind is the pathway to her experiencing pleasure with her husband, and she poses suggestions to him that might help.
