Slice of Write

Stories & jibber-jabber by Janelle Parmer, Author of The Other Side of the Ledge & Chasing Calla Lilies

As some of you may know, I started writing a book many years ago, but work, school, life, and my other hobbies got in the way of me finishing it.  During my COVID-19 furlough from work earlier this year, I went back to it and was able to turn this wonderful idea in my head into something tangible.  I wrote this book to make me laugh (and sometimes cry), and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it. 

The Other Side of the Ledge is the story of Kara, a woman in her late 30’s dealing with the sudden death of her husband, Chris.  The book flashbacks into the life of their marriage and the readers get a front-row seat into their loving and complicated relationship.  The story not only delves into the stages of grief caused by the sudden loss of a loved one, but also explores the role mental health plays in our personal relationships, and how people use humor as a tool to help navigate hardships.  Through the love and comic relief of her family, friends, and new friends made along her journey, Kara learns how to finally accept Chris for the person he was, come to terms with his death, and embrace the new person she has become as a result. 

My goal is to release The Other Side of the Ledge on Amazon by mid-December!  I’ll keep you posted. 

Most importantly, a big thanks to my family and friends for all of their continued love and support!  Without you, none of this would ever be possible.  Cheers!
