51 Love

by Jeremy T. Ringfield


GENRE: New Adult Contemporary Romantic Suspense





This story is about Abram, a hopeless romantic who enrolls into college and begins leaving love notes for the girl, Jec, who works at the front desk of his student apartments. About why they know each other when neither have even met. That’s right, she had seen his face only two weeks earlier, when he tossed his book bag in the middle of the street, holding up traffic like a mad homeless man. But what she doesn’t know is that just before he came to grab his keys to move in, the handsome albeit strange eyes and the person they belong to had just been released from the county jail.


The jail cell talk without any cameras around to record make his last 51 minutes in the pen with a sketchy bunkmate a do or die conversation that may explain why he became homeless, why he wrote the love letters in the first place, and if both were random at all.









Chapter 9


The same day in August, 2015


I think, for the price of a pizza, the experience of the novel is priceless.


A literary ecstasy, this was not a book I wanted to lend. I had to have it.


My co-worker interjects my thoughts, “Is that lighter fluid? What is he burning out there in our fire pit? I’m telling you Jec, that dude killed somebody. You haven’t seen him around as long as I have. The way he’s always scrunching his face, looking like a stone cold killer with all that stinking thinking. Some people struggle with who they really are. And when it goes foul, you know they don’t always catch these people.”


He picks up and holds out the book I am reading titled Wait For You, and says, “Some novels you have to read twice to really see all the beauty in the nuances, but these plots don’t always end beautifully Jec. You should start reading more of them.”


I take a bite out of an apple and stop scratching my thumb across a squiggled smear on my permanent marker to look out the window as I reply to my front desk co-receptionist, “Bobby, you’re being ridiculous. It just looked like he pulled some papers from a box and threw them into the pit. Hey, where’d he go?”


Bobby answers quickly, “No really, have you seen him using his hands on the street? He’s probably practicing some lethal judo that nobody knows right now. Hi-yah!—”




At the sound of the front door bell I tried to smother my giggle in professionalism, but I no longer found it necessary to suppress as the blurry silhouette of the person entering the front door became clear and my laughter came to a sudden halt.

    How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

    Hi Mai, great question! The idea for the story…uh. LOL One day, I went to grab some coffee from the lobby of my apartment complex, andI thought the girl working at the front desk looked attractive. She fixed my coffee, and when I walked away, I thought, “hey, what if I left her a note the next time I come to get some coffee?” I never did leave that note. I didn’t have the courage. LOL But I did write a story about that idea. That’s how I came up with Abram and Jec.

    If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

      Awesome question mshogrider. It would so be Jec. I’ve lived in DC before, and as a boy growing up, my favorite writer of all time was (and still is) Thomas Jefferson (naturally, as my middle name is also Thomas LOL); and so I would want to do two things. Drive out to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and visit his South Square Room, where we would observe both, the Maria Cosway engraving, and some of Thomas Jefferson’s overflow of books from his personal library. The engraving, because TJ’s lust for Maria (a younger, married woman he met during his envoy in France) is reminiscent of Abram and Jec, and they have, in my opinion, some of the best love correspondences in history, describing the inner argument he was having between his head and his heart. After, I would want to have a peanut butter and jelly picnic on the Washington Memorial, in the sun and wind. And just listen to her.

    The synopsis mentions that this character was released from jail. What research did you do to make a former prisoner come to life on the page?

      Hi Danielle! Hmmm…great question! I was inspired by the HeForShe movement, and dedicated the book to a particular close friend of mine. With that said, I sort of have two main characters. Two lovers, and both of them are a PART OF ME. Abram is more of my reality, and Jec is more of my fantasy. And both were born of the same inspiration within these two different contexts. Abram, the male, was inspired by those closest to me, especially my family. Jec, the female, was inspired by the dreams I hear from men and women all around the world who support the HeForShe movement. HE IS WHO I AM, and she is who I hear. The research was easy; they’re my memories. And the book, I hope, is written with a touch of levity for some very important and socially conscience topics. : ) Thanks again!

    I love the cover! How do you choose a cover?

      Hi Misty! Thank you : ) I’m from Georgia, and the setting of the book is in a small town called Valdosta, Georgia. So it was just fitting that I put the state fruit, a peach, on the cover. The idea of having smoke as well came from the story, as the fruit has something to do with thawing the tensions. Thank you for the question : )
