Dennis and Greer is a nonfiction love story in letters and journals between 2 college students during the Vietnam era. (This is nonfiction that reads like fiction)
A true story that encapsulates the horrors of war and the innocence of young love.
Buried in a trunk for fifty years, this long-forgotten tale, told through letters and journals from the war-torn Vietnam era, has been resurrected.
College students, Dennis and Greer, met and felt a spark just before moving to different states. Their witty correspondence through letters conjured a desire to meet again, but Dennis tried to keep his distance; duty is more important than love.
As the two embarked on their journey into adulthood and navigated their relationship against the backdrop of war, they were writing a love story that will span the test of time.
What is the hardest part of writing your books?
Dennis and Greer is a collection of letters and journals. The hardest part was figuring out what to exclude. If I had transcribed every letter and journal entry, the book would have been 1500 pages long.
What songs are most played on your Ipod?
Anything by the Grateful Dead.
Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
What book are you reading now?
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. I’m love it!
How did you start your writing career?
I inherited a treasure of vintage letters and journals and knew that I had to share the love story contained within those writings.
I am working on another compilation of long lost letters and journals from the 1800s that also tells a love story. This one is between a cowboy and a sassy girl who sings and plays guitar.
About the Author
ASU graduate, Molly Gould, lived in the wilderness for 28 days when she was 16 years old (she’s your go-to-girl in the zombie apocalypse). She now confines herself indoors with the AC full-blast in her sunny sate of AZ. Occasionally, she’ll brave the scorching heat with her husband and four children.
When Molly inherited a treasure of vintage journals and letters, she was swept away by the love story contained within those writings. She couldn’t keep Dennis and Greer to herself, so she began transcribing and Dennis and Greer was born.
