About The Year of My Novela:
Set in San Antonio, where the local culture informs love, this five-part novela series follows Jane Kilpatrick, a recently empty-nester professional educator, as she transforms from a lifeless woman to passionate one. When friends and a nosy gynecologist’s nurse discover her ten-year absence from sex, they propel her into the online dating world. This leads to a journey of personal revolution, all while accessing psychic dreams, astrology, and the advice of a flea-market tarot card reader.

Eventually, Jane must choose between a resurfaced lover and a new man with female baggage he may not be able to escape. Then, one person threatens her career and new life, forcing her to make choices previously postponed. As this initial quest to reignite Jane’s sexuality leads to transformation and love, she experiences how the false narratives of plentitude and scarcity play out in the adult dating world, while gaining understanding of the universal thing we all seek in our relationships.

In part one of this series, Jane takes a first step into the online dating world and ends her years of abstinence…
