Book Description
Jennifer Whitney was the last American virgin. At least that’s what she felt like in 1986 as she began her sophomore year at Central Illinois University. She was proud of her decision to wait for the right guy, and yet she was getting restless. It seemed like everyone around her was doing it... and having fun doing it, too. She didn’t want to become the campus slut or anything, but surely there was a difference between a trashy skank and a nice girl with a little experience. Perhaps it was time to stop relying on fate to guide her and instead take matters into her own hands. And with that realization, Jen decided to find “the one” and lose her virginity, although not necessarily in that order...

By Nicki Elson

·         Jennifer Whitney is the ultimate average girl…who comes up with a far from average plan to lose her virginity while maintaining her “virtue.”

·         The piece of crap Sapporo that David drives is a replica of the piece of crap Sapporo that my real-life friend Ed drove. A tidbit that didn’t make it into the book is that on a road trip, Ed and his buddies once plugged a leak in the windshield with a McDonald’s cheeseburger. Gross but effective.

·         The only character based wholly on someone I know in real life is Jen’s godmother, Aunt Lou, who is based on my real-life godmother…yes, she’s read the book and now wants to be called Aunt Lou (you’ll see why—she’s sooo fabulous).

·         If you download the songs mentioned throughout the story, you’ll have the most awesome 80s playlist ever. Or you can listen here if you’re on Spotify.[Link:]

·         As often happens in real life, the girls Jen meets in the dorm freshman year end up becoming her college-long, and most likely, lifelong friends—and they prove themselves to be sometimes obnoxious, sometimes bossy, but always loyal…with a catfight thrown in for good measure.

About the Author
Writing wasn't something Nicki set out to do; it just sort of happened when she realized writing reports was by far her favorite part of her investment consulting position. She traded stock allocation and diversification for story arcs and dialogue and now weaves her creative writing time in with the other activities of her busy life with her family in the Chicago suburbs. 

Nicki writes with two goals in mind: #1 to keep the characters realistic, even when their circumstances are anything but, and #2 to make the reader feel. Her published works include Three Daves, a light-hearted romantic romp through a 1980s college campus, Divine Temptation, a romantic novel of angelic proportions, and short stories “Sway” (available as a single), “I Don’t Do Valentine’s Day” (part of A Valentine Anthology), and “Impressionism 101” (included in the debut issue of Insatiable: The Magazine of Paranormal Desire).
