Are we Facebook friends yet? I’m the wactress (waitress/actress) turned lawyer who lives her life online. (Don’t we all these days?)
Anyway, I’ve got this problem. . . . There’s this guy. His name’s Peter. He’s my best friend and co-worker, and we just started dating, which is potentially a huge mistake. But, that’s not all. There’s this other guy, Marty. I met him on eHarm, and he ran with the bulls in Spain. I can’t get him off my mind. What a mess. I’d love your advice if you can take a second out of your crazy, high-tech life. Shoot me an e-mail. Or text me. Or BB messenger me.
And friend me if you haven’t already! You can find me on Facebook under Save as Draft.
Cavanaugh Lee was raised in San Francisco, and received her undergraduate degree from UCLA’s School of Theatre. After graduation, she worked steadily as a “wactress” for four years. True love (or so she thought) led her to the deep south of Mississippi, and when the relationship imploded she stuck around south and received her law degree from UNC. By day, she is a prosecutor in Savannah, Georgia and by night she is searching for true love and working on the sequel to SAVE AS DRAFT.
“Lee's inherently intimate format succeeds most when a character's thoughts are revealed in unsent e-mails, revealing the outcomes that could have been had more fearless actions been taken and how matters are misinterpreted and misunderstood. . . an honest and oddly relatable novel.”
“Up-to-the-minute, this breezy, fast read may resonate best with the ‘connected’ generation . . . or not. Love, after all, is ageless and universal.”—San Francisco Book Review
