About the Author:
Kacie D. Idol is thrilled to introduce her debut novel, The Tulip Factory. A native of Kernersville, she attended East Forsyth High School and graduated from UNC-Greensboro with a B.A. in communications. She and her family love calling Kernersville home.
She wrote The Tulip Factory when her daughter was a baby; while the baby napped, Mommy wrote a book. Her family has always been supportive and encouraging of her writing abilities. “Writing is something I always wanted to do,” she shared.
Kacie values strong women who know what they want and actively seek it out. Her lead character, Corrine, is such a person. Kacie based Corrine on the personalities of several women she has known over the course of her life. Corrine exemplifies the strengths and weaknesses common in all of us, and as such, is quite relatable.
Kacie selected the book title from her favorite flower and one of her personal book favorites, Factory Girl. She also wrote a blog named Tulip Factory, which encompassed poetry and relationships.
About The Tulip Factory:
The Tulip Factory is, at its heart, the story of first love and the longing for it to be a lasting love. Corrine’s love for James has many ups and downs over their years together, and she has difficulty letting it go. However, to move on with her life, she reaches a painful decision and sticks with it.
Kacie weaves this story in a series of flashbacks from both Corrine’s and James’ points of view. At certain times, we hear the voice of Corrine; at others, James is the guide with his personal take on the situation. It’s an interesting method that holds the reader’s attention.
The conclusion is somewhat unexpected and leaves the reader wanting to know what happens next. That will be for Kacie’s next novel . . . More experiences and adventures as Corrine follows her dreams.
