About this author

Ben Rehder wanted to become a writer ever since he was dropped on his head as a toddler. As he grew into a young adult and the vertigo gradually dissipated, his passion for literature grew. Ben longed to craft the type of soul-stirring prose that would touch people’s lives and help them explore new emotional horizons. But he went to work at an ad agency instead.

“the past year or so that make me think Leigh Anne might be having an affair.” “What kind of things?” “She’s always been a big shopper, but now she’s going several times a week.
