#BookChat See Me by Adrienne Thompson

See Me is the story of Olivia Moy, the widow of a beloved and very celebrated author. When we first meet her, she is slowly losing the battle as she struggles to cope with her husband’s untimely death. Concerned about her condition, her son insists on taking her to his home where she soon befriends his neighbor. It is not long before Olivia begins to divulge the secrets of her marriage, secrets that can destroy her husband’s legacy and her world.

From the Author:
See Me deals with two very serious subjects: domestic violence and mental illness. I was compelled to write this book because of my own experience with domestic violence and my memories of a brilliant relative who suffered from mental illness. When reading this book, I want the reader to feel the emotions and the turmoil of the characters and to realize that for many people, what is found in this book is a daily reality.

What readers are saying about See Me:
“This is an amazing story. I kept reading until I finished it in just a few hours. I hated for it to end. I can hardly wait for the next book.” – Margie Nesby
“Awesome read!!!” – Jennifer James
“WOW, when I started reading this book, I couldn't stop!!!” – Alicia P.

Behind the Scenes:
One of the main characters in the book was a famed author and poet. I had to create poetry to include in the book and I had to create the poetry from the prospective of a man who is deeply in love with a woman (something I obviously know nothing about). I truly enjoyed that part of the creative process as I am a poet at heart. Here’s an excerpt from one of the poems:
“I close my eyes, her breath beckons my surrender. It is she, not me, who matters. I feel her touch from afar, knowing every line and ridge of her fingerprint, committing to memory every inch of her beauty. Her soft murmurs and moans are a symphony to my ears. It is Olivia and Olivia alone that I need. My greatest desire is her nearness. Olivia is my divine pleasure...”

Adrienne Thompson is the divorced mother of three, and the doting grandmother of one precious little boy. She resides in Arkansas and when she's not writing, she works as an RN. She is also the author of Bluesday, Been So Long, When You’ve Been Blessed (Feels Like Heaven), Lovely Blues (Bluesday Book II), and See Me.
