— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: JOSEPHINE TRAYNOR —
I’m a writer with a dream of sharing the characters I see in my head with others and have you fall in love with them too. I have been a writer since I was a little girl and finally got brave enough to show my work to a friend. My friend asked for more and that, in turn, resulted in me showing a couple more friends, who told me this book needs to be published.
On the other side of the pen name, I’m a mother of two and that’s a big part of why I’m using a pen name. This is MY career choice, not theirs. It’s not about being ashamed of my work, far from it, I am super proud but I have a responsibility. The other reason is due to wanting to keep the focus on my work. For the lack of a better pun, I’m an open book, ask me anything, but I think my books are far more interesting than I am.
I think about writing and characters all the time. I love nothing more than sitting down at my computer, or even with my pen and notebook, to get my imagination down on paper. I try to create characters that feel like friends, people that the reader would want to know. I aim to write stories that not only give you a laugh, but have you thinking about your own life.
About the actual name – I’d chosen another name and found out that there is another author out there with the same name. Back to the drawing board, I chose my favourite name – which was Josephine. As for the Traynor part, I’d just finished reading Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You and Will Traynor’s choices and suggestions about living to the fullest and without regret was another push for me to follow my dreams.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you fall in love with a few laughs along the way.

David: Sophomore Year; Dave, Junior Year; Big D, Senior Year
by Nicki Elson
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
This review is really a review of all three books since I can’t seem to remember where one picks up and the others end. 1st let me start by saying that it was interesting reading it after I read Elson’s preface about how she changed the era the book was written and how she changed the book to more showing than telling. I can tell almost where she made those changes and then switched back to the telling. I can’t be sure but it seemed like one minute I am deep in dialogue and the next I am in 3rd person wondering how I was pushed out of this awesome little Elson world. There are some serious grammatical and spelling errors, but if she can re-edit these books one more time, I think this series could really take off. The books are still really good and I definitely recommend them because David 1 is a total idiot in book 1. I love seeing him grow through this series. By the very end of book 3, I was on the verge of my seat. Each book is better than the last ending with a huge bit of awesomeness. There are times when I was screaming in horror at things that occur and then laughing my butt off putting myself in Jen’s shoes. Her friends are a riot, and she learns the lesson of finding her true self through just growing up and making mistakes. Such a good series.
I received this series from the author for an honest review.
