Fun, sassy, and mysterious...this is one of those books that you won't put down until you find out exactly who is playing who.

Past Imperfect is a pleasurable read ... that will touch your heartstrings. Smooth flowing dialogue makes this a story you can breeze thru....
~Matilda --Coffee Time Romance & MoreJ.M. Cornwell has written an endearing story about Diana who becomes conflicted and begins to question her choices. Every detail is beautifully described for the reader, making it difficult to put the book down.
One thing about Diana is that she is one determined lady and no matter what the problem she prevails. These are three people with so many obstacles yet one chance ... to find their true love. I just loved it. ~Melinda --NightOwlReviews.comPast Imperfect
is not a perfect story but a very good story with many twists and turns. The twisted minds and manipulations made [it]
a darker romance. I enjoyed it. If you enjoy romance with lots of surprises, you will too. --Long and Short Reviews
From the Author
Many people believe that writers get paid to lie, and for some that is true. I get paid to dream and I use my own experiences, dreams conversations and the people I know in creating the stories I tell. Everything begins with "what if" and, if the muse is good to me, takes on a life of its own, as it did in Past Imperfect
Unlike the essays and stories I write for for the Chicken Soup and Cup of Comfort anthologies, all of which are bits and pieces of my life, my novels and short stories come from dreams and fantasies and hopes.
In Past Imperfect
I began with hurt and anger at being dumped because I was the right woman but not THE right woman. The story I intended to write changed during the process when one of the background characters, John Logan, began bugging me in my sleep. He told me he was more involved than I thought. After days of sleepless nights with Logan pestering me, I gave in and let him tell his story. He was right. Logan did have a bigger stake in the story and he told me things I didn't know.
That's the best part about writing. When you do it right, the characters come alive and take over. The bad part is that they come alive and take over and refuse to take direction. Prima donas!
I have since learned to listen to characters because they know more about their lives, hopes and dreams than I do. I am, as Andre Norton once told me, merely an observer, a journalist taking down notes and describing what I see. When the author is invisible, or nearly so, the book is much better and provides a window onto a world the reader visits and revisits until the characters' trials and tribulations become a part of the reader's life. Or at least that what writers hope -- that their storybook people come alive and touch other people's lives. I certainly do.
