The Secret World of Juniper Grace by Livia Ellis

Juniper's quiet life needs a bit of shaking up.

The secret world of juniper grace

Quiet and unassuming Juniper Grace is blessed with a rich inner life. During her days as a college English professor she sometimes bores even herself, but after hours she explores her vivid fantasy life in the pages of the books she writes under a carefully guarded pseudonym. When the handsome neighbor she silently and secretly longs for inserts himself into her life, Juniper gets a well needed disruption to her otherwise orderly existence.

Juniper is the first in a new series. Sales of my other books are excellent and I'm confident my readers will continue buying my books. I have had a book featured in an article in USA Today. 

Sample text:


“I met a woman once that knit a sweater for her boyfriend, hoping that the sweater curse would get him to break up with her,” Pansy said, quietly breaking the silence.

Juniper, who considered her name more of a curse than a creative blessing, looked down at the frenetically curling hair on top of Pansy's head. A beam of sunlight sneaked through the crack in the curtains the two used as a spyhole to peep through as they concentrated their attention on the seemingly innocuous tree-lined suburban street.

“I cringe to ask,” Juniper said. “But what, pray tell, is the sweater curse?”

“Knit a sweater for a man...” Pansy whispered. “Guaranteed he'll break up with you in a month.”

“Did the woman's boyfriend break up with her?”

“He did.” Pansy shrugged. “I'm considering going by the wool shop this afternoon. And I’m going to get condoms.”

“You're single,” she pointed out indelicately.


“If one does not have the right to be indelicate with one's best friend, then who else is there?”

“One can never be too prepared in case of a romantic emergency. And stop referring to yourself in the third person. It’s annoying and a little bit pretentious.”

“There!” She gasped quickly, then sighed in disappointment as she realized the person that had rounded the corner was not her jogger, but rather Mrs. Coleman, the octogenarian that lived next door to her.

“You’re stalking Mrs. Coleman?” Pansy asked.
