9781500221430: My Secret Life: Confessions of a Housewife

From the outside looking in, Valerie Watson has it all: her loving husband of 20 years, Daryl, two beautiful kids, and she's a stay at home wife/mother. But while some may envy her, Valerie is tired of staying home everyday with nowhere to go and nothing to do other than cook, clean up after her husband, and spend the rest of the day watching reality tv. On her 40th birthday, her best friend Cynthia takes her out to a male strip club to celebrate. This experience changes Valerie's life, but not for the better after she becomes sexually involved with the strip club owner/pimp. Valerie's quest to add more excitement to her dull life takes her on several wild escapades but when she decides she's had enough of the fast life and wants out, she'll find that won't be as easy as she thinks.

About the Author:

Joyce L. Thomas, also known by her pen name J.L. Sapphire, is a self-publisher and the founder of Lady Virgo Publications. She was born and raised in Arkansas and she still lives there with her husband and two kids. Her love and passion for reading began when she was in the 6th grade after she picked up her first Sweet Valley Twins book. After reading that one book, she practically lived in the city library. It was not likely to see Joyce without a book in her hand after that, and it's been the same way ever since then. While enrolled at the University of Arkansas Community College at Hope studying Criminal Justice, she won a creative writing award for an essay she wrote on an assigned topic and she earned an A.A.S. in Criminal Justice in 2007. As a single mother for many years, her love of writing took a backseat to parenthood but she continued writing short stories in notebooks and on computer and writing in journals hoping one day she would be able to publish them. She works outside the home as a part time security guard but once she gets home, she goes straight to work at her fulltime job as a wife and mom. Her duties include, but are not limited to: chef/caterer, maid, personal nurse, therapist, event planner, and referee...just to name a few. Writing is Joyce's version of Calgon, by locking herself in her room, she can get away from her many jobs (at least for a little while) and lose herself in the lives of the characters she creates.
