My name is Jorja DuPont Oliva. I was born and raised in a small town in Florida. I still reside there with my husband of 13 years, my two sons and many animals. I am a small business owner with a dear friend of 18 years. I have always loved writing. It was my way of letting my feelings out without the world knowing. At the turn of this year I decided and my partner too. I needed some” me” time. I decided to take a book writing class because I always said I wanted to write a book. Well I am doing it now. I have started writing my novel and I love every word I have written. Those that know me will also love my words as well. Although my novel is fiction many memories of people I love and things I cherish is in it. Have a little taste of my novel:
This is a novel of mystical, magical, and spiritual realism that touch each of our lives. We just don’t take the time to breathe it in. As a young adult Lizzy is searching for her identity after a first love breakup. She finds the lasting power of friendship and unbreakable bonds with people. She learns along the way that being normal may hold you back from becoming the amazing person you can be. You will grow as you watch Lizzy grow into an amazing women.
I want to thank my best friend and partner of 18 years- Rhonda Gabe- for staying on top of the two of us.
