About the Book
Life post-graduation was supposed to see the launch of Jadyn’s art career, or at least an art gallery showing one of her watercolor paintings. Instead, this Pittsburgh native is locked into a low-paying consultant position with an impossible boss. When another coworker is fired, Jadyn inherits an extra workload, including the company’s biggest client. If she loses him, she’s fired.
Evicted from her apartment because of a small spending problem, she is forced to move in with her know-it-all sister. While everyone else plans a neat, buttoned-up life for her, Jadyn longs to paint professionally. Stretched like canvas between responsibility and dreams, she must choose.
About the Author
Hiya, I’m Barbara!
I believe words heal. Whether written or read, words have a way of building a bridge from the heart to the mind. I want to explore that.
I’m a 20-something hope-in-progress bent on growing despite the gritty, pot-holed road of adulthood. Jump in the passenger seat and I’ll try to be a good driver!
My work experience includes a smattering of jobs from shop girl to communications manager with a healthy dose of nanny and house-cleaner. Basically, I’m your Jane of all trades.
I’ve lived in three countries (USA, Dominican Republic, and Austria), and I’ve visited 17 more countries on top of that. My goal is to visit the world. Shhh! A girl can dream!
My most cherished dream (besides traveling the world) is to become a published novelist (which is happening on November 15, 2018, when Teal Paisley Tights releases).
I rarely turn away ice cream (peanut butter please) and only buy purses that provide room for a book or two (or a kindle).
I’d love to connect on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook.
Cordially (and with so much love),
Barbara Brutt’s debut novel, Teal Paisley Tights, is a charming and funny story that readers will delight in. Although the writing is a bit scattered, this fits the main character’s personality so readers will quickly overcome this pitfall. A fabulous chick lit and romcom style story, from page one readers will be giggling. This story follows Jadyn’s life as she strives to come to know herself as she works hard and develops her creativity. There is also a strong focus on family and family drama within the story. Brutt’s debut is one that readers will thoroughly enjoy!
