When the perfectly-normal Ann Jones rants on about a bizarre and hauntingly immersive vision into her own future, her best friend, Alex, thinks she may have taken a swig or two.
After her freak encounter, Ann recounts the strange and foreboding glimpse of her future life—one that holds an unanticipated exuberance: her beloved husband dies suddenly (and questionably); she moves to the East Coast; finds love again; joins a peculiar knitting club (full of the strangest assortment of women, none of whom actually knit, but all of whom follow cult-like rules—such as, “What Happens in Knitting Club Stays in Knitting Club”); and becomes deliriously happy.
Her whole recollection leaves Alex’s head spinning with one question—has her friend totally lost it? How could anyone be deliriously happy about joining a knitting club? But when Ann presses Alex for an answer about what to do with this “future life vision experience”, Alex must decide whether this strange anecdote is just a desire to be free from Ann’s humdrum existence or a self-fulfilling prophecy. Should Alex support her friend’s “new life” or warn Ann’s husband about his impending doom…

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My friend, Ann Jones inspired it. As I reveal in the book, she described every detail of this mysterious future vision of hers. I didn't figure out what was actually happening until the end of her story. And then I had a decision to make. But, well, I don't want to ruin anything for the reader, so I'll leave it at that.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Characters? Oh, yes, you mean um…Ann's friends. Ann described them to me, of course.
"This isn’t Hotel California; this is a knitting club, for God’s sake!”
Alex Bailey was a bored writer/editor of documents as monotonous as vacuum cleaner manuals. Two years ago, she left that life behind to create more exciting worlds than the one she lived in. In February, 2018, Alex released her debut novel, THE FUTURE MEMOIR OF ANN JONES. When Alex is not writing wild stories about her friend’s future, she tends to her organic garden while belting out show tunes. Alex and her husband started the garden with the intent to donate fresh organic produce to their local food bank, and so far, it has been a smashing success. Some of her favorite hobbies include: embarrassing her children in public with her rhythmically-challenged dancing, cleaning the small disc around the stopper of the bathroom sink, and dallying.
