Author Deanna Kimberly Burrellabout this book: I feel like I'm writing my way into the hearts of women everywhere with my new novel, 'Single Girl Summer'. Inspired by the classic movie 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' and the sassy TV series 'Sex in the City', I created a story with characters that, embody the same spirit as Holly Gollightly and Carrie Bradshaw, but add yet another, all so important element – how the characters' parents helped shape them into the women they are today. Instead of just sitting on the sideline, I decided to get in the game after realizing the void in the market for books with African-American characters. I have taken a leap of faith to pen my first novel and move one step closer to my destiny.

Button Jackson is the ultimate single girl, but her inability to commit stems from a fear of commitment triggered by her dysfunctional family. Meghan Cherry is newly divorced and her story represents the journey from heartache to healing. Her family is wonderfully supportive so Meghan and Button are dichotomous characters that play off each other. Dawn Martin is ready to get married, but her long-term boyfriend is dragging his feet. Dawn represents the woman at the crossroads deciding if she should stay or go. The three women meet and exchange relationship perspectives and advice. With and through a rich cast of supporting characters, Single Girl Summer isn't just about dating, it explores female friendships and family interaction. Single Girl Summer presents balance relationships and characters in a fun, easy-to-read story.
