Erika Seals dreams of writing the perfect romance novel. Rather than dedicating her time to more "sensible" pursuits, Erika finds it easier, (and simpler), to focus her energy envisioning fanciful tales for her unpublished heroes. She longs for a modest degree of fame and recognition, but yearns more to control her obsessive-compulsive disorder. With the help of her therapist and a self-help book entitled, Knowing the Real You, Erika sets off on her quest for normalcy. And when her landlord's son, Elliot Beck, breaks up with his girlfriend, Erika believes she is sufficiently grounded to reunite the duo, priding herself on her extensive knowledge of romance. But nothing goes as planned, and soon Erika is forced to make a painful admission. Unable to find solace in her fictional world, she seeks courage to come to terms with the reality that is her life, and dares to believe there is worth in her romantically wrapped persona. The Obsessive Compulsive Romance Novelist is a humorous work. It offers a satirical perspective into the world of romance writing, while illustrating the complexities and follies of the human mind. It is a glimpse into one woman's creative madness, and her maturing to self-acceptance and love, gloved hands included.
