Today I’m excited to welcome author R. Jean Wilson to my blog. This guest post is part of a promotional tour for her book, Clementine. Read on to find about her journey writing Clementine.
This book was a personal journey for me. Most of the characters in the book were inspired by people I know. Addison is extremely close to her mother, and is her best friend throughout the book. Someone mentioned the other day that Addison met so many people and didn’t really hang onto her friendships but I think they forgot that parents can often times fill that role quite well.
Holden is another character that I based off of someone in my life. While my real-life Holden is not a surgeon or quite so god-like, most of the interactions between he and Addison come from personal experience. All of the dates Addison went on, I had the pleasure of going on as well. It was really fun to recount those experiences through a character’s eyes.
The city of Austin played a large role in my book as well. Anyone in Texas reading my book will instantly recognize the landmarks I use. It was a bit cautious on my part to write so close to home, but it felt like a story I needed to tell. I was so happy to share the story with my Mom, knowing she would see herself written through my eyes.
Addison Caldwell has her future laid out before her. She has good friends, applications in the mail for PA school, and sweaty yoga to take the edge off of her lack of love life. Just when she finds herself right where she wants to be, Addison stumbles on a familiar stranger standing before her at a coffee shop. He’s beautiful and brilliant. She’s immediately drawn to him and can’t put her finger on how she could possibly have met him before. She finds herself tumbling head first toward a man that she knows is in a league composed solely of him and a bevy of Victoria Secret Supermodels.
I graduated from the University of Texas where I studied everything from Microbiology to Architecture & Society… So, yeah, I ended up with a lot of extra credits.
My favorite quote is: Eat Cake for Breakfast.
I love taking my black lab Ollie to the hiking trail, exploring Austin, baking gluten-free treats, & reading!
