From the Author
History saw fit to label it the Jazz Age, a carefree time of newfound freedoms and youthful exuberance. Everything changed in that decade. And if you weren't young, one of those fearless babies, you got left behind, forgotten, like the shrugged-off Victorian ideals of previous generations. Emily Ann is the living embodiment of that change. All things are new to her.
In the opening chapter of Jazz Baby, we see a battle beginning to play. Eunice Spatch and her male companion represent the old guard, the ones who have followed a well-worn path through the familiar. Things are done a certain way--we don't deviate. But Emily Ann, she's the jazz baby in the back seat, telling those two upfront that things have changed, women have the vote now. There's a new rule book that needs to be studied.
