A Forbidden Two-Decade Relationship Revealed

Easton, Md., March 1, 2017 – Just in time for spring, Outskirts Press has published a shocking memoir by Resia Nank (née Andrews). This journey of forbidden love and sexual awakening begins in the “me generation” 1970s and follows her life and relationships into the “go-go” 90s.

Nank was born in Cambridge, Maryland but attended school and graduated from Easton High in 1977. As a freshman, she met and fell in love with a mysterious, married man who moved into her neighborhood. She spent her college years and most of her adult life in Baltimore. Her juicy memoir traces the ups and downs of her affair, courtship, then marriage, to a man 19 years her senior and its ultimate tragic end.

“For years, my friends would urge me to write a book,” Nank said. “It took me a long time to get my memories onto the page and create a coherent story. Then, I felt the time was right to be unburdened by revealing the secret.”

The book is available directly on her website, or on Outskirts Press, or Amazon (e-book only for Kindle), or Barnes and Noble (for Nook) as a paperback or an e-book. Any bookstore can order the book using ISBN #978-1-4787-7609-3.

Nank has always been a writer. During the book’s timeframe, she worked for the Star Democrat newspaper in her hometown. In her 25-year career as a corporate journalist and communications professional, she wrote for various industries on multiple platforms. She holds a Masters degree from Johns Hopkins University and an undergraduate degree from Towson University. She’s lived in and around Baltimore and the Chicago area but spends as much time as possible at her favorite home in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Nank is currently working on her second book, a true crime tale of her best friend’s mother’s murder. Her lifestyle website is a well-curated, single source for affordable liberal arts and crafts products. Explore the books, stories, paintings, music and crafts made by humans for fellow humans, with an artistic eye to enriching lives and creating beauty, entertainment and pleasure.
