Kim's Review

Josephine Traynor's "A Quarter to Twelve" is the first tale in the Time series. This book had me laugh and yelling out loud at my screen repeatedly. After one bet JaneDoe123 is stuck on an online dating site where she meets many crazy men who like to send D pics. She finally starts talking to someone semi-normal and they agree to meet up at her favorite restaurant. That date doesn't go how she expects and heads home. She decides to give it one more try when she meets TrickyRicky. They have some amazing conversations and agree to meet up, although that doesn't go quite as planned. No matter what they try, it seems the universe is against them. Can they finally get to meet? What happens to delay them meeting? Find out this and more in this awesome read!!!

5 out of 5 stars

— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: JOSEPHINE TRAYNOR —
I’m a writer with a dream of sharing the characters I see in my head with others and have you fall in love with them too. I have been a writer since I was a little girl and finally got brave enough to show my work to a friend. My friend asked for more and that, in turn, resulted in me showing a couple more friends, who told me this book needs to be published.

On the other side of the pen name, I’m a mother of two and that’s a big part of why I’m using a pen name. This is MY career choice, not theirs. It’s not about being ashamed of my work, far from it, I am super proud but I have a responsibility. The other reason is due to wanting to keep the focus on my work. For the lack of a better pun, I’m an open book, ask me anything, but I think my books are far more interesting than I am.

I think about writing and characters all the time. I love nothing more than sitting down at my computer, or even with my pen and notebook, to get my imagination down on paper. I try to create characters that feel like friends, people that the reader would want to know. I aim to write stories that not only give you a laugh, but have you thinking about your own life.

About the actual name – I’d chosen another name and found out that there is another author out there with the same name. Back to the drawing board, I chose my favourite name – which was Josephine. As for the Traynor part, I’d just finished reading Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You and Will Traynor’s choices and suggestions about living to the fullest and without regret was another push for me to follow my dreams.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you fall in love with a few laughs along the way.
